All-rounders and specialists on two wheels
EXPRESSO's hand truck concept is designed for maximum flexibility
EXPRESSO's hand truck concept is probably unique. It is based on an ingenious modular system, from which customized hand trucks can be manufactured for every conceivable transport task. In this way, more than 3000 different hand truck versions are available practically off the shelf. What's more, a wide range of accessories enables every basic hand truck to be converted into an application-specific and product-optimized logistic specialist.
Perhaps parcels of various sizes must be delivered, entire washing machines moved, crates with fruit or beverages, barrels, gas cylinders or other kinds of bulky or heavy goods must be trans-ported safely from A to B. In a nutshell: Every branch has its own, individual transport and goods handling tasks. EXPRESSO's modular hand truck system covers the entire scope of logistic requirements with maximum flexibility and variability. Based on a few basic aluminium versions with different load capacities and dimensions, coupled with an enormous range of wheels, handles, footplates, and accessories, the Kassel-based manufacturer is able to configure ideal hand trucks that are perfectly matched to the needs of every branch, process, product group, and customer.
Individuality for utmost efficiency
Principally, EXPRESSO's hand truck portfolio covers load capacities up to 500 kg. Of the six optional handle versions, the continuous height adjustment of the Click4 safety handle with four fixed angle settings plays a special and innovative role. This patented solution is an outstanding example of how EXPRESSO's design experts strive for maximum flexibility and ergonomy. Regarding wheels and tyres, the user can choose between convenient pneumatic tyres or “unflattable” Airlex tyres, as well as various diameters, treads, and rim types. All wheels from EXPRESSO are featured by their smooth-running properties and a long service life. Similarly, the large range of tubular and flat footplates for EXPRESSO hand trucks leaves nothing to be desired. While mail, parcel, and KEP delivery services mostly use the many different versions of tubular footplates, other branches prefer fixed or foldable flat footplates. The latter versions feature precision-grooved, profiled, and chamfered footplates with different widths, thereby per-mitting extremely versatile use. And with a concave rear plate, even drums, buckets, and other cylindrical goods have a secure hold.
Apart from this wide choice, every EXPRESSO hand truck can be fitted with numerous acces-sories and special attachments which convert it into a handling specialist: Anyone needing to
transport stacked chairs or particularly high stacks of parcels will find the answer here, just like all the other users searching for a solution for the safe handling of e.g. gas cylinders, kegs, water bottles, and other geometrically demanding goods. Whether footplate wideners, securing catches for beverage crates, loading or tipping aids, lashing straps for heavy goods, or auxiliary sup¬porting wheels – the range of accessories is the best proof for EXPRESSO's extensive practical know-how in the transport business. The company can even provide electrically powered stair climbers, drum brakes, and safety reflectors.
