Types of Sack Trucks

In addition to the standard sack truck, there are a variety of speciality versions available, tailor-made to better suit particular jobs. Here’s a few of the most popular:

 

adjustable sack trucks

Adjustable Sack Trucks

While traditional sack trucks are extremely handy, their solid frame and simple design can make them somewhat limiting in terms of their versatility.

From a flexibility standpoint, an adjustable sack truck can remedy that issue in an instant, providing additional variety in terms of how you approach the load.

These are particularly handy if you are habitually required to move loads of varying size and shape.

For example, our Folding Toe Sack Truck comes equipped with an extendable toe length should you need to lift a larger item.

Adjustable sack trucks are often used in travel services, mail companies and construction.

Folding Sack Trucks

For ease of storage, foldable sack trucks are a fantastic space-saving solution, typified by their ability to reduce their size.

Common features include telescopic handles and a foldable toe plate, allowing the equipment to shrink down to more manageable size for transport and storage.

Folding sack trucks are particularly handy for jobs where you are required to move around and change location on a regular basis, e.g. deliveries, etc.

 

aluminium sack trucks

Aluminium Sack Trucks

Boasting enhanced durability, resistance to rust and a lightweight frame, aluminium sack trucks provide a tougher, more hard-wearing solution to load moving.

As a result of its aluminium frame, these products are also far more resistant to bending and chipping – both of which are common issues associated with lesser sack trucks.

Aluminium sack trucks also typically come with solid rubber wheels for enhanced traction and easy manoeuvrability that’s suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

 

stair climbing sack trucks 

Stair Climbing Sack Trucks

When lifts are absent or unavailable, transporting heavy goods up and down flights of stairs can be an arduous endeavour.

Luckily, you can step up your sack truck game with stair climbing sack trucks – specifically designed to tackle stairs one step at a time and make stair transport a breeze.

Specifically designed for tackling stairs head-on, stair climbing sack trucks typically feature a unique feature a three-wheel rotary system or a sled-like track that allows them to traverse steps with ease.

Stair climbing sack trucks often come in the form of electric-powered sack trucks for additional easy-of-operation, reduced strain and optimised transportation.

 

Cylinder Sack Trucks

Designed almost exclusively for transporting gas canisters, cylinders and bottles, cylinder sack trucks provide the perfect transportation method for these notoriously awkward items.

Cylinder sack trucks are typically fitted with an adjustable front plate for securing cylinders of all sizes, providing an additional element of security during transit.

Meanwhile, another common feature of cylindrical sack trucks is their tendency to feature hard-wearing tyres, allowing them to be used in industrial environments without worry of punctures.

However, one thing that often gets lost in the festival frenzy of campsite prep is logistics. Admittedly not the most exciting of subjects when compared to global music icons and frosty beverages in sun-kissed air, but an important point nonetheless.

Luckily, we have you covered here at PTT, with our very own festival trolleys – designed to make your campsite journey a walk in the park, not an expedition.

When you arrive at a festival and hear the distant murmur of the sound stages reverberate across the land, it’s not unusual for the heart to beat a little faster, the hairs to stand up on end and anticipatory excitement to grab you firmly by the proverbial gonadulars.

As such, the very last thing you want to do in this scenario is begin an arduous odyssey, loaded up like a cart horse with several trips on the cards. For anyone that’s been there and done it, it’s a rookie mistake that’s rarely repeated twice.
