Choosing a Lightweight Sack Truck

You’ll first want to decide between aluminium and stainless steel. Both of these metals are strong, but aluminium is definitely lighter. The main sacrifice for a light sack truck is of course maximum load. If you’d prefer a heavy duty sack truck article that will give you options if you need something heftier.

Here are three additional factors to consider when trying to choose the best light sack truck for your needs:

Height

All sack trucks have different heights, and the ones that offer adjustable heights are good when you transport items of all different sizes and designs. This is also an advantage if you are either shorter or taller than average because it’s easier to get one that’s comfortable for you to use.

Stair-climbing Ability

Some sack trucks have additional wheels that make going up and down stairs a lot easier. Many of these are electric, but just know that electric sack trucks are a bit pricey. Still, if you go up and down stairs frequently, you should seriously consider buying a sack truck that has stair-climbing capabilities.

Folding vs. Non-folding Design

Folding sack trucks are convenient because they are easier to store. Foldable trucks also tend to be lighter in weight and smaller in size.

Most light sack trucks are really affordable, so you should be able to get exactly what you need without breaking the bank. 

Final Thoughts

Although you can’t expect all lightweight sack trucks to accommodate very heavy items such as appliances, they can be a terrific help in shifting heavy items efficiently.
