Our flat free hand truck wheels are manufactured utilizing micro cellular Polyurethane elastomers. These wheels perform just like pneumatic tires, without the hassle and expense of flats.
They are flexible, lightweight, and they compress and conform to road surfaces just like air-filled tires.
However, like any other product, flat free hand truck wheels undergo wear and tear after extended periods of use. With flat free polyurethane wheels, it is a good idea to replace the entire wheel.
This post discusses the steps for replacing flat-free hand truck tires.
Steps to Replace a Flat-free Hand Truck Wheel
The procedure that we have provided here involves replacing the wheel and the flat-free hand truck tire as a single unit. A hand truck wheel assembly can consist of either a cotter pin, or a lock washer. We will provide separate points for removing both components.
Assemble your Tools and Safety Equipment:
It is extremely important to keep the safety gear on at all times during the replacement procedure. They will ensure that you don’t get hurt while replacing the wheel.
Lift the hand truck and lay it down on the table or firm surface, with the wheels off the ground and facing you. Ensure that the truck’s handle, and the package spade are in the down positions. Make sure that the truck is secure, and will not move. Remove the axle end cap, if there is one in the assembly.
If you use the right tools and follow the instructions, the average DIYer can complete the wheel replacement process easily. This procedure can also be used if you are using custom flat-free hand truck tires. The best way to get the right wheel and tire is to approach the manufacturer of the actual hand truck or a flat-free hand truck wheel manufacturer. Either one can suggest the right product that will meet your needs.
