The Original Folding Hand Truck

Rutlands    Part No. DK7039

• Perfect for easy transportation of heavy loads up to 80kg
• Heavy duty 180mm wide rubber coated wheels
• Folds in seconds for easy transportation and storage
• 480mm x 250mm cast aluminium bed for transporting large loads
• Strong tubular hardened steel frame

We have used these hand trucks in the goods inward area of our warehouse for the past 6 years and they perform admirably, day in day out. The 180mm wheels are made from ABS plastic which are rubber coated for smooth movement and to protect work place floors. The size of the wheels means that you can transport across both flat and rough terrain including gravel driveways, paths and lawns. The carrying bed is made from a ribbed aluminium casting measuring 480mm x 250mm, allowing for wide loads to be moved. The casting surface is dimpled to prevent loads from slipping off in use.

The tubular frame when fully extended has a working height of 1 metre, minimising the need for the operator to bend down. The frame is made from tubular hardened steel to maximise strength and minimise weight. The hand truck folds down in two clean movements - simply push down the frame and fold in the wheels and carrying bed. It takes less than a couple of seconds and no tools are required. When folded down it measures 750mm tall x 450mm wide x 30mm deep and weighs a mere 4kg. This is an excellent hand truck that is equally at home in the workplace, around the house or on site. This is the original folding hand truck and should not be confused with low cost look-alikes found elsewhere. Highly recommended.

    Purchased this for moving Planters and Tubs in garden. I must say that it does the job admirably. It is well made and at the price a good buy. Unfortunately it has come down another £10 on offer since I Bought mine. (That's Life) I only had one complaint though. As I am over 6ft, I found that the extended Truck handle is a bit short for me. It was not a difficult job to attach two pieces of broom handle with Jubilee clips and a cross piece. Has made all the difference. It still folds but is a foot longer. A good buy.

    Purchased this item at the beginning of this month, it is very well built and stable in action. However is got used in anger this week and what a great workhorse it is, for the money it's a real winner. Well done Rutlands yet another great product.

    Great value at £18.95. Quick fold out and heavier weight than I anticipated. Will function perfectly for my needs - use for transporting my beer and camping gear at festivals!!

    Just bought this - not used it yet, but it certainly folds down easily and opens up with no problems. Looks well constructed. I was concerned that the base being made of cast aluminium would not be able to do the job, but the base looks strong and not liable to shatter easily. So far so good!
