h=t / Hand Truck


h=t is designed to improve worker's welfare and boost productivity.

Conventional 2-wheeled hand trucks require users to constantly adjust its balance by tilting and/or applying force. This leads to fatigue and often forces user to operate in awkward posture.

Addition of rear wheels, and the ability to adjust and lock h=t's tilt angle through its handle, minimize the need to constantly adjust its balance. Moreover, user can move heavy items in a comfortable posture.

Parking brakes, winches, and contoured load bed are available to reduce difficulties in loading/unloading and securely fasten objects regardless of their form and size.
