Sitecraft’s massive range of trolleys includes the ever popular folding trolley or folding hand truck. Our folding hand trolleys provide an easy and versatile solution to many manual handling problems. As the folding handtruck trolley name suggests, these portable trolleys can be folded and stored easily or can be loaded into the back of trucks, station wagons and even sedans.
Sitecraft’s portable collapsible trolleys for sale allow for heavier loads to be transported at one time. Importantly, by using these folding hand truck trolleys, employees can greatly reduce the need to manually handle products. Of course, this can significantly reduce OH&S manual handling risks. In addition, our folding trolleys and folding hand trucks can significantly increase workplace productivity. All that’s needed is to take out the folding hand trolley truck, load the boxes or other materials, and wheel them to their intended destination. As mentioned, the correct use of manual handling aids can help reduce injury caused by manual tasks. It is, however, important that the correct folding trolley or folding hand truck is selected that is fit for its intended purpose.
Important requirements include the layout of the work space, the actual physical characteristics of the operator and the task and the material being loaded.
When looking to purchase a portable folding hand trolley (also known as a portable folding hand truck), work space considerations that should be considered include: floor gradient, grip, smoothness of floor, stairs, space available, and availability of suitable storage space. Worker characteristics, include the variable height and other relevant physical traits. This will have impact on equipment design, such as handle heights and width and visibility height. Furthermore, the task and material being transported will affect position and dimension of platform, durability, handle height, number, size and configuration of castors/wheels.
Sitecraft offers an extensive range of folding trolleys, folding handtrucks and collapsible trolleys, each with a number of different features to suit your specific business requirements. Our standard folding trolley model comes with pneumatic wheels, tubular steel construction, and the ability to collapse down for easy storage in cars, trucks and vans.
