Moreover, our ergonomic designs are engineered to reduce strain on operators without sacrificing performance or durability.

Custom Hand Trucks For Your Business

We know that every business is different, and that’s why our custom hand trucks are built from the ground up. Using one of our five frame options as a foundation, our team makes it possible to transport everything from small and odd-sized items to large cases and heavy cylinders, including kegs and water bottles. With a maximum of 500 lbs. of capacity, these stress-resistant frames deliver superior shock absorption capabilities. They will provide reliable performance in loading docks, warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and retail centers.

Custom hand trucks feature:

  • A wide range of different handle options, including dual grip vinyl, single loop with vinyl sleeves, pin handle in the center grip, and more
  • Cast aluminum or extruded aluminum nose plates
  • Full pneumatic 4-ply, semi-pneumatic, or solid foam wheels
  • Stair glides
  • Nose extensions
  • Frame extensions

This two-in-one system moves via an easy release mechanism that allows operators to switch quickly between the two positions with minimal effort. The lightweight aluminum construction is stress-resistant, strong, and lightweight.

  • Platform bed height of 10-1/2″
  • Frame width of 12″

Replacement Parts on Demand

Proper maintenance and careful handling will deliver years of reliable performance. Even so, the best-built equipment will require replacement components as the years go by and daily use takes its toll. At RWM, we maintain a full inventory of replacement components, ensuring your hand trucks don’t sit idle in the warehouse. When wheels wear out, nose extensions get crushed, axles break, or bearings grind to a halt, you can reach out to our team, and we’ll send the replacement component right away.
