Replacement Hand Truck Handles
Hand trucks come with numerous handle designs to meet your ergonomic preferences. In general, the simpler the handle design, the less weight it adds to the frame. Consider the benefits of each option available from RWM:
- Single horizontal loop handles are the most popular, giving the user multiple grip locations for different situations.
- Vertical loop handles improve maneuverability with multiple gripping choices.
- Dual grip handles offer excellent steering capability and a solid grip for optimal load control.
- Pin handles offer an optimal balance point between the user and the hand truck. A top grip is ideal for control on stairs, while a center grip provides easy one-hand turning.
- Dual loop handles are preferred for providing control while climbing or descending stairs.
Hand Truck Frame Extensions
The purpose of a frame extension is to accommodate taller loads. This provides added stability so hand truck users can cart around bookshelves, appliances, tall stacks of boxes, and other oversized items. Frame extensions are available in various heights to meet your needs.
Replacement Hand Truck Noseplates
The noseplate is the part of the hand truck that supports the bottom of the load. Perhaps the noseplate on your truck has been damaged, or you want a larger version to accommodate unusual package sizes. Either way, the aluminum noseplates from RWM are sure to meet your needs. Numerous options are available to fit convertible or fixed hand trucks of different sizes and styles.
Replacement Hand Truck Wheels
After years of heavy use, your hand truck wheels may be worn out. RWM offers six different replacement wheel options in 8- and 10-inch sizes. In general, 8-inch wheels are lighter than 10-inch wheels, though the 10-inch option typically provides superior maneuverability over diverse terrain. Explore the different wheel materials we offer:
- Solid rubber wheels provide easy-rolling performance and maintenance-free tires.
- Nylon wheels with rubber treads are among the lightest, yet most durable wheels available for hand trucks. They roll well over most paved surfaces.
- Pneumatic wheels provide shock absorption to protect the load from excessive vibrations when rolling over gravel or other uneven surfaces.
- Solid foam wheels are excellent for rough and uneven terrain, providing similar shock absorption qualities as pneumatic wheels. They never need air, and they never go flat.
