Rotacaster Handtrucks

Supplier: Lucas Distribution Agencies

Without compromising directional control or load stability the rotatruck self supporting handtruck fully supports the load, removing the need to balance or support any weight. The fixed orientation of the 4 multi-directional rotacaster wheels provide a static wheelbase that ensure a stable load environment with unrivalled manoeuvrability.


The rotatruck reduces the risk of strain injury and improves productivity by:

  • Fully supporting the load removing the need to balance it.
  • Allowing the load to be levered up a kerb from a forward approach, using much less effort and a safer ergonomic posture than is possible with traditional hand trucks.
  • Ensuring excellent tracking capability even across trafficable inclines.

Other benefits include: minimal pull back effort required to change from the upright to the transporting position; rotational and lateral (direct sideways) manoeuvrability in confined spaces such as lifts, corridors and storerooms; allows completion of the loading process in the transporting position; keeps hands free to open doors without parking or balancing the load. (The Rotatruck features an industrial steel frame and a load capacity of 220kg)

Moving heavy loads up and down stairs can be difficult and awkward, often resulting in damaged walls, floors and stairs or a strain injury. By using rotacaster's fixed multi-directional wheels, the rotacaster stair climbing handtruck reduces this risk, allowing users to transport a load with greater safety and confidence while managing confined spaces through the following unique advantages:

  • direct tracking capability and improved steering control.
  • 360° movement providing easy rotational and direct lateral (sideways) manoeuvrability without causing damage to floors.
  • easy repositioning of the load laterally across the width of a stair to safely negotiate stair landings and other confined spaces.
  • designed with reference to the Australian Construction Standards, the wheel base enables a safe resting position on a single step, greatly reducing the risk of a runaway load.
  • easy clearance of stair nosing avoiding contact and damage of stairs.
