Hand Truck-Wheel Types-1

In this article we continue to build on our list of hand truck wheel types. The terminology can sometimes be overwhelming, but if you really look into it and break it down, it becomes far less daunting. These technical terms are used to describe hand truck wheels in catalogues as well, so it is useful to know them so that you will know exactly what you are buying.
The balloon cushion hand truck wheel offers a smoother ride on a rounder rubber wheel. The balloon shape accommodates a larger carrying capacity. Unlike a real balloon, this hand truck tire is highly flexible under pressure, so it will not stay firm and round. It will flatten under the weight and bounce back to its original shape once the load is removed. The shape is designed to minimize friction; a rounder wheel is easier to turn under heavy weight.
