The requirement for a hand truck that could hold a large roll of carpet, a G size gas bottle, or a 45 kg LPG bottle lead to the design of the ET13.
The ET 13 has unique characteristics, a set of rear wheels fold out to support heavy loads such as floor vinyl or oxy acetylene bottles. The fold away section allows the hand truck to be stored away conveniently or the hand truck can be left unattended in the open position (as shown in the top photo). The frame has a “V” shaped support that centres the rounded load and stops it from rolling . A ratchet strap was also added to support larger, more difficult loads.
The ET 13 has a solid steel toe and the frame is constructed of steel tube and bar, making it strong and durable. The wheels of the ET 13 consist of 2 – 280 mm solid rubber wheels that are designed to take heavy loads, and 2 -125 mm swivel castors on the fold out section for support and ease of movement.
Designed for large gas bottles.
