    A platform truck is a useful tool for safely maneuvering heavy goods and materials. Platform trucks have 4 caster wheels, 1 or 2 handles, and a flat or slatted platform for loading items. Capacity is an important factor, with most platform trucks supporting between 300 and 2,800 lbs. If you need the high capacity, a heavy-duty platform truck may be worth the extra money, but otherwise you can find more affordable trucks in the 300 to 600 lb. range. Locking wheels and non-marking wheels lend to ease of use and protection for your workplace. Some platform trucks may have reconfigurable designs to accommodate for differently sized loads.
