Standish, MI -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/02/2014 -- Magline, manufacturers of innovative lightweight route distribution solutions, introduced the Aluminum Narrow Aisle Hand Truck (NAHT). The overall height reaches up to 68 inches, holds a capacity of 500 pounds and the lightweight aluminum frame of 31 pounds makes the hand truck easier to maneuver. The durable aluminum construction is 23 percent lighter than steel equivalents.
Last month at MODEX the NAHT won raves. The newly designed hand trucks have 2.5 inches on each side to tuck the wheels directly behind the nose plate to be one of the narrowest modular aluminum hand trucks on the market. The truck is specifically designed to interface with all Magliner hand truck parts, and most accessories enable field retrofits. The cost effective modular design equates to easy repair versus whole-unit replacement.
The NAHT easily maneuvers into and out of tight spots more so than other narrow aisle trucks. The high strength and corrosion resistant 6061-T6 aluminum extruded wheel adapter brackets provides extra protection in corrosive environments. The sustainability extends the life of the NAHT thereby reducing replacement costs.
