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 where heavy lifting is needed. 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 maneuver heavy loads of 300kg or more with ease, by hand. They are an essential tool in warehouses, factories and many other work environments.

The traditional heavy duty sack truck is what many of us imagine, but they can also be created with a variety of other 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 team will work collaboratively with you on every step of your next project, as we want to ensure the final product exactly suits your needs. Our specialised background in CAD (computer-aided design) technology helps speed up the development process. Our decades of experience means we are well versed in all types of metal fabrication techniques and we can work with many metals including aluminium, steel and copper to make our trolleys and trucks.

What are three common variants 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 awkward. Our purpose made appliance sack truck is wider and taller than other types, providing more leverage and stability whilst you are moving each appliance. The protective material also helps stop the goods being damaged whilst in transit, and is perfect for any appliance or removals company.

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 again and again. The toe plate is collapsible and can be folded away easily while the truck is not in use, saving you precious space in your workplace. These can be designed to be incredibly lightweight so are effortless to move when not in use. RentalSpec’s 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, such as 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 it rolling. If that wasn’t enough, they also feature straps to securely fasten the load to the trolley to keep it even more secure.

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

Sack trucks are made with the load and the user in mind.

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. The advantage of this design is that it 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 or 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 maneuver, and 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 twofold; the user has a more comfortable grip as well as being 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.

Stair Climbing Castors

There are many obstacles that stand in the way of heavy lifting, least of all stairs. Sometimes you do need to maneuver your truck upstairs and this is where stair climbing castors come in to create useful sack trucks (or barrows) for stairs. Combined with multiple wheels they allow for smooth transportation both up and down flights of stairs, making them perfect for all sorts of organisations from removals companies to delivery companies.

Back Shape & Toe Plates: Large Toe Plates, Mud Guards, Curved Backs

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 also help stop the load catching on the trolley wheels and so help prevent accidents during transits. Having larger toe plates allows for bigger loads to be safely carried and having a curved back ensures the weight sits centred on the trolley. All of these aspects make life safer and more efficient for the user.
