Platform trucks & magazine trolleys
The platform truck also known as magazine trolley, is extremely practical for everyday business tasks. The loading area or platform ranges from small and handy up to the XL version to transport large goods. Depending on the tyres, platform trucks can be used on soft carpets, on hard floors such as in the warehouse and outside across the company premises. Like the tyres, the material must also be selected according to the intended use. We offer a wide selection and are happy to give you some tips on what to look out for when buying a platform truck.
The platform truck as a practical partner for professionals
Platform trucks can be found in almost every business. Whether office, warehouse or production – if something that is not necessarily on a pallet to be transported by a pallet truck has to be moved quickly, a platform truck is the ideal solution. Visually they look very similar, but if it’s used for lighter goods then it is called a magazine trolley. The respective load capacity and the platform size make the difference here. We have various models ranging from 200kg to 600kg in our portfolio – the right platform truck for every purpose.
Plastic or solid rubber tyres
Indoors, where sharp objects might be on the floor, the solid rubber tyre is a good choice, as can be found on our steel platform truck. This variant is perfect for continuous use. Plastic tyres made of thermoplastic elastomer, or TPE for short, are extremely durable as in addition there is also hardly any abrasive wear. This special material is quiet and smooth-running: low rolling resistance despite enormous load capacity create a perfect whole.
Folding platform truck or folding truck
Folding trucks are platform trucks or magazine trolleys whose push handles can be folded onto the platform. This means that the truck/trolley doesn’t require much space for storing when it’s not in use or it can even be transported in a car. Just like all of our other platform trucks, the folding truck also consists of powder-coated tubular steel with two swivel castors incl. brakes and two fixed castors made of plastic.
The handle truck
Small and handy, the handle truck is a popular choice when small but heavy goods (up to 250kg) have to be moved in an office. The compact trolley is optionally equipped with a steel platform or a wooden platform. With two swivel castors and two fixed castors each made of special plastic (TPE), it runs easily, smoothly and quietly over carpet or hard floors. Both swivel castors feature brakes in accordance with European standard EN 1757-3 (Safety of Platform Trucks).
