Magline, Inc., Standish, Mich., launched a heavy-duty hydraulic brake truck.
With this new design, the lever stroke required to activate braking power is reduced to the strength of a single fingertip.
ControlPRO technology provides what is said to be up to three times less muscle exertion required to slow the truck. Stronger, heavy duty wheel brackets increase load capacity up to 600 pounds, and the added feature of an ergonomic kick bar assists with loading, unloading and breaking back loads.
The split-line hydraulic system provides even side-to-side braking for true linear descent, and the axle-less design prevents brake misalignment. The brake lever can be adjusted without tools to fit a wide range of hand grips, and can be mounted for right or left hand use. Self-cleaning disc brakes provide consistent performance in all weather conditions, and rugged 10-inch wheels maneuver the toughest terrains.
New handle options provide height adjustment, and the optional stair climbers can be adjusted to one of three different angles to provide optimal load support on stairs.
