This Wesco 230051 StairKing battery-powered aluminum stair-mountaineering hand truck can be utilized for transporting lots as much as 850 lb. up and down stairs. A 1/2 HP electric motor with a single sealed rechargeable battery powers the ascent and descent of the truck as much as a 70-stair capacity under a full load. The hand truck has a noseplate that measures 24 x 4 inches (W x D), and it measures 24 x 12 x 66 inches (W x D x H) overall. (W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back; H is height, the vertical distance from bottom to top.) The truck has two 6″ moldon rubber wheels for maneuverability, and a built-in auto-rewind clasped cargo belt for securing the load. It comes with a battery, charger, and circuit breaker. This battery-powered aluminum stair-mountaineering hand truck is suitable to be used in industrial and commercial material handling applications.
Hand trucks, sometimes called two-wheeled dollies, are used to transport heavy or bulky items, especially in commercial product distribution and delivery. Hand trucks are L-shaped, with handles at the top, two wheels at the bottom, and a small platform that touches the ground when the truck is upright. A load is placed at the platform and the truck is tilted back, balancing the weight over the wheels. Powered hand trucks have a platform that lifts the load up, or lowers it down, to reduce human labor. Some hand trucks could also be convertible to platform trucks for moving large or cumbersome lots. Others fold flat for storage.
Wesco manufactures material handling equipment under the Wesco and Lexco brands. The company, founded in 1948, is headquartered in North Wales, PA.
