Magline says its Powered Gemini convertible hand truck reduces user fatigue and increases worker safety and productivity by nearly eliminating pushing and pulling of loads; it supports larger, more stable loads, which enables fewer trips and faster delivery times, according to the company. Its nitrogen-inflated pneumatic tires, Magline says, stay inflated six times longer than air-filled tires, thereby reducing maintenance and increasing uptime.

The four-wheel truck, which has a capacity of 1,000 pounds, can be converted easily to a two-wheel hand truck and back again, the company says. The powered hand truck uses a direct-drive motor to assist users while the truck is in the four-wheel position. The 750-watt motor runs in both forward and reverse direction at up to nearly 4 miles per hour and is powered by a sealed, rechargeable battery.

The product includes a folding containment arm to help keep loads in place during transport, as well as two casters with brakes and two non-marking wheels with sealed, semi-precision bearings designed for improved maneuvering and account service. A wrapped ergonomic handle provide grasping comfort and efficiency, and a rubber bumper helps protect users’ legs.

Powered Gemini is available in both Jr. and Sr. versions. For more information, go to www.magliner.com.
