What is an electric hand truck?

An electric hand truck is also called an electric hand jack or an electric hand cart. It is a motorized hand cart that allows the user to lift heavy objects with ease. Users can also transport stacked objects from one place to another without using too much energy while doing so. Electric hand trucks are a modern form of technology that is helping many people like factory workers to get the job done quicker.

Hand trucks originated in the 18th century when boys as young as 11 years old had to work for their families to have enough food to eat. These boys would have to move large sacks of spices on docks from ships and into the market or other ships. They were unable to carry these large sacks and so they came up with a technology to carry as many spice sacks as their adult counterparts. This is how hand trucks became popular for transporting items.

How does an electric hand truck work?

Motorized hand carts are basically battery-powered hand trucks. They have a battery pack that helps make the pushing or pulling action done by the user easier. An electric hand truck dolly can carry anywhere between 50 pounds and 3,500 pounds of cargo at a go. This is why they are also known as electric hand forklifts. Meaning that they can carry much more weight than a normal human can draw using an ordinary hand truck.

There are electric hand trucks for stairs that can help the user to carry items up a flight of stairs with ease. Electric hand truck stair climbers are used to carry loads up and down and not forward and backward. Automatic hand trucks can help elderly people or those with an injury to carry household items up to 50 pounds heavy.
