Do you need a large order of warehouse trolleys, or bespoke trolleys designed to your specific requirements? Call us on 029 2045 0128 to discuss your needs with our expert team.

Sack trucks (also known as folding sack barrows) can be found anywhere that heavy lifting is required. Designed with an L-shaped ledge on two wheels, the ledge acts as a platform for the load. The user can then tip the truck back and manoeuvre heavy loads of 300 kg or more with ease, by hand. They are an essential tool in warehouses, factories and many other work environments. 

While many customers have come to rely on the traditional heavy duty sack truck, these products can include a variety of features depending on the intended use. Whether you’re looking for one to effortlessly lift fridge freezers and other white appliances, or a stair climber, RentalSpec can create the exact product you need.

Our sack trucks are: 
✓ Long-lasting. Your team will be able to rely on our sack trucks for years to come. 
✓ Custom-made. We can make these trucks with accessories to fit your business  – whether that’s stair-climbing wheels, mudguards, or something else.  
✓ Space-saving. Many of our sack trucks can be stacked together when not in use, saving valuable space in your workplace.

What are the different types of sack trucks?

Sack trucks can be used for a whole host of different tasks depending on the needs of each business. There are three main types of sack truck found in warehouses and factories across the world.

Appliance Sack Truck

Moving white goods can be dangerous, as they can be very heavy and bulky. Our appliance sack trucks:

Are wider and taller than others available, providing more leverage and stability

Have protective material to help stop the goods being damaged

Are the perfect trolley for moving fridges, washing machines and more

Folding Sack Truck

Folding sack trucks are ideal for any warehouse or factory setting. Having been designed to give maximum support to the toe plate, users can confidently transport heavy loads

The toe plate is collapsible and can be folded away while the truck is not in use

Designed to be incredibly lightweight

Folding sack trucks can be designed to take loads of 80kg upwards

Heavy Duty Sack Truck

This type of truck can be used for all sorts of jobs –  moving straight, square boxes, or more unusually shaped objects such as cylinders.

They have curved backs which allows the load weight to be centred, minimising the risk of rolling

They feature straps to securely fasten the load to the trolley

Can be designed with ergonomic looped handles for comfortable use

What are the different features of a Sack Truck and what are their benefits for material handling?

Our sack trucks are designed with the end user in mind – putting comfort and safety at the forefront.

P Handles

Sack trucks can come with a variety of different handle shapes and styles, each with their own benefits.  
P handles are loops at the back of the truck’s handle in the shape of a P
This allows the user to be able to operate the truck safely with one hand, leaving the other one free to open doors, steady the load, o rperform other tasks

Looped Handles

Looped handles have one large loop at the top of the truck rather than two separate handles.
This means:  
They’re ergonomically designed and easy to manoeuvre
The user can place their hands wherever they feel most comfortable

Hand Grips

Manual handling can be hard on the body, especially the hands. Hand grips are beneficial as they provide soft support for the hands rather than the user having to grip onto metal.
The benefit of this is two-fold: The user has a more comfortable grip over long periods
It helps the trolley be more steady if they have hot or sweaty hands


When you’re carrying heavy and bulky loads, you want to know you can trust the tools you are working with. Our sack trolleys come with two puncture proof wheels which make them perfect for use on all sorts of terrain – from soft grass to gravel to the smooth cement of the warehouse floor. 
They are often made of rubber or nylon
Choose fixed or swivel wheels depending on your needs

Stair Climbing Castors

There are many obstacles that stand in the way of heavy lifting, least of all stairs. Sometimes you need to manoeuvre your truck upstairs – and this is where stair climbing castors come in to create useful sack trucks (or barrows) for stairs.  
The multiple wheels allow the trolley to go up and down flights of stairs
Ideal for all sorts of organisations, from removals companies to delivery companies

Back Shape & Toe Plates:

Trolleys are designed with the user in mind. Bigger mud guards allow the weight of the load to spread more evenly and thus make the transport easier for the user.  
They help stop the load catching on trolley wheels and so help prevent accidents
Having larger toe plates allows for bigger loads to be safely carried
