Hand truck to haul equipment


Recommended Posts

  • Members

I'm looking for a convertible hand truck to haul equipment, amps and pedal boards, etc. This will be especially used at the venues where there is a hike from the load in area to the stage like casino gigs and the larger venues where there is a long walk.

 

I'd like something that can be used vertically like a regular hand truck, or converted down to a flat bed type of cart and used that way too.

 

Anyone have one of these they can recommend? Looking for something solid that won't break after 10 uses, light weight and portable.

You need a hand truck to haul your pedal boards?!?!

That cart looks f'n SWEET!!! Which size do you have??

 

I only have 1 pedal board, but I wanna buy extra pedals and boards just so I can haul it with that cart! :lol:

 

Actually, it'll be nice to be able to throw 2 amps (a DRRI and a Classic 30), my pedal board, and a guitar or 2 on there, and make the trek thru the casino floor...

Doesn't the casino have a baggage cart you can use?

You'd friggin think so wouldn't ya!!!???

 

Last time we were there they said sorry guys and we loaded everything with our regular small vertical hand truck and carried it. It only took 3 trips.

 

Must be the Detroit economy. Not to worry though...the casinos here are still busy!

I have this one: 044681120626lg.jpg

 

It was expensive but it converts from stand up to flatbed super easy, no parts like cotter pins to lose, don't have to remove the handle and insert it into the other holes for the flatbed position. It's very lightweight. Good tires. I use it at the casino gigs we play where the load in is sometimes 500' or more from the vehicle to the stage. I can stack up my gear pretty high and take 3 trips to unload my entire van- 2 subs, 2 tops, 2 rack cases, 2 keyboards, keyboard speaker, suitcase of power cords, stands.
