There are many things that set men apart from animals, and one of those aspects is our ability to use tools. You very rarely see a squirrel using a hand truck to carry its acorns around, after all! The point is – tools make things easier, and if something is easier to do, then it offers an increase in efficiency. If you’re the owner of a business, then you’ll understand that efficiency is important, as the more efficient you are, the greater your profits are likely to be.
If you run a warehouse or a production facility, then you’ll no doubt be interested in the ease in which items are transported internally. Getting your items from your storage areas to where they need to be as quickly and efficiently as possible is crucial to how your company runs. You could transport these items by hand, but we’re sure you already understand that it is much more efficient to use hand trucks – either manual, semi-powered or powered instead.

Popular Models of Wesco Hand Trucks
· The Aluminum Cobra Convertible
The Aluminum Cobra Convertible hand truck can be configured into one of two positions – the classic ‘hand truck: load, tip and transport’ configuration, or the ‘platform truck’ configuration, hence the ‘convertible’ name.
This hand truck comes with two sets of wheels. When in ‘hand truck’ configuration the smaller wheels are positioned halfway down the back frame where they serve no purpose. In ‘platform truck’ mode, the lower back wheels are lowered to the ground as the frame is split and folded in two. The lower part of the frame becomes the bed of the platform truck, making this style of hand truck an extremely versatile one. For smaller items, the hand truck can be used as a hand truck, and for larger items it can be used as a platform truck.
There are four types of convertible trucks available – simply choose the one that is likely to suit your needs the most. All have various loading capacities up to 1,000 lbs., and are manufactured using strong, American-manufactured aluminum. No matter the size and scope of your operation, you will find a fleet of these handy, convertible hand trucks very useful inyour business.
· Stairking Superwheel
Everything – it seems has a natural enemy, even hand trucks. The natural enemy of the hand truck is of course, the stairs!
Of course, within your production facility it’s likely that you’ve thought about the way in which your operation runs, and you do not require your hand trucks to ascend stairs. If you have an operation on several floors of a building, then we hope that you’ve invested in elevators!
What if you make deliveries? Can you guarantee that the places you are delivering to will not have stairs? It will ruin your logistical efficiency if upon arrival your delivery personnel finds that they have no choice but to hand carry all the items up several flights of stairs because there’s no other alternative.
You can prevent this inconvenience from becoming a major issue by investing in a Stairking Superwheel. This strong hand truck has an extra set of wheels that makes ascending (and descending) stairs a breeze. Manufactured from super-strong steel, this model has an impressive capacity of 850 lbs., and comes with a 90 day warranty that covers all parts.
