As we have been getting regular questions about maintaining the well being of your trolley wheels and sack truck wheels, we have decided to write a brief blog about this subject.
The most common problem we hear about is the puncturing of trolley wheels.This will almost always happen if you have been using your trolleys and sack trucks in littered areas.
By ‘littered’ we just mean an area that has a high chance of having either loose debris on the floor or having any number of screws and nails lying about.
Being only human, we understand that not everyone will use their sack barrows with their eyes glued to the floor, just in case they might go over a nail.
The reality is that most people will not check around their working area until it is too late and thus, the end result being..?
…Having your trolley wheels and sack truck wheels left totally punctured!
Now how can you fix this problem?
There are two easy ways of preventing this from happening.
The first way takes a little longer than the second and requires you to do some thinking. This will however prevent you from damaging and puncturing your trolley wheels and sack truck wheels.
Before you start moving your trolleys, sack trucks and sack barrows, make sure your pneumatic trolley wheels (air filled trolley wheels) are in good condition and the trolley itself is safe to use.
When you are ready to go, decide the route you wish to take.
Once you have plotted this route, the next part involves you first walking to your destination.
This is where you need to put your thinking cap on. While walking, start making an assessment of the area you will be taking your trolleys or sack trucks through.
Be sure to take note of any debris, nails, screws or any other sharp objects that may be lying around.
Once you have completed your assessment and you are sure the area is safe and secure, you may proceed with your task at hand knowing your sack truck wheels and trolley wheels will not be punctured!
The second way around the problem of punctured tyres is simply to buy puncture proof wheels!
These are made of solid but slightly cushioned foam which can never be punctured as there is no air or inner tube inside them.
Hope this helped!
