Easier. Quicker. Safer. 

The new hand truck generation

Manual material handling is often fatiguing, requires an enormous amount of effort and can cause serious strain and back injuries due to repetitive  awkward movements and posture. 

Rotatrucks make manual material handling not only easier, but quicker and safer. The unique patented four-wheeled base fully supports and carries the load, reducing the effort required and the risk of injuries. It saves time and money and guarantees a quick return on investment.

Rotatruck allow the user to leave their hands free and to step up kerbs without reversing, while providing an easy 360° rotation and nearly unlimited mobility. Rotatrucks make your manual material handling Easier, Quicker and Safer.

 



Rotatrucks

Save Time

Save Effort

Save Backs

The Rotatruck reduces not only the time taken, but also the frequency of some activities and removes the necessity of others. To negotiate a kerb, you no longer have to turn, reverse up the kerb, to then have to turn again in order to proceed. Or you don't have to take a detour to find a pedestrian layback. 

Negotiating a kerb with a Rotatruck saves 60% of the time taken of a two-wheeled hand truck. This means getting through more jobs faster, with more energy in the bank.

You no longer have to strain to pull back a load, continually balance or support it, or haul it up the kerb. Say goodbye to fatigue and hello to more energy and productivity.

Rotatrucks reduce the effort required by up to 55%, while also reducing the frequency of some activities.  You don't need to park and pull back the load at way points such as closed doors, crossings or partial load drops.

Despite all equipment, musculoskeletal injuries are still disproportionally high when it comes to maual material handling. The cost of lost time injuries, compensation rates paid and worker shortages are staggering

By their unique design, Rotatrucks simultaneously reduce the effort and input required while promoting a better posture and ergonomics. This offers the rare opportunity to improve both safety and productivity at the same time.
