Everyone needs to move packages and boxes from time to time, but you may not always need a heavy duty piece of material handling equipment that will take up a lot of space. In fact, you might find it helpful to have a small hand truck available in your car or truck for easy use if it didn’t take up too much room. This is where the Wesco SuperLite Folding Hand Truck is invaluable.
At Douglas Equipment we have been in the business of quality casters and material handling equipment since 1955 and the Wesco SuperLite Folding Hand Truck is one of the most useful hand trucks we have found for everyday use. Reliable, durable and sturdy, when in use this hand truck offers the benefits of a full size hand truck with the ability to store it easily. Along with the exceptional quality and reliability of Wesco products, this folding hand truck is easy to use and store.
What is so great about the SuperLite?
The SuperLite folding hand truck from Wesco has all the benefits of a full size hand truck when extended. Like all hand trucks these units can hold loads that are boxed with a lightweight nose plate under the loads and a long handle that allows the load to rest against the back and maneuver the load through tight spaces.
When not in use the SuperLite can fold down to an incredibly small size of 19” by 29.5” by 2”, which makes it ideal to store in the back of a small pickup truck or hang easily on the wall of a garage. This space saving folding design includes folding the nose plate up behind the truck, and the wheels in so that the thickness can be greatly reduced from the fully extended 17.5” to the mere 2” thickness of the folded unit. This and the exceptionally light weight of the unit make it an easy choice if you want to take one anywhere you may need a hand truck.
When in use the non-marking, shock absorbing, rubber tread tires will not only protect any delicate loads being carried, but will also protect the floor over which the hand truck is moving. The added security of the elastic straps can be used to hold delicate articles in place and is ideal when using the hand truck to take medium sized objects up a flight of stairs, such as boxes being moved to a second floor apartment.
