High Performance Designer Platform Trucks –
The Best Value Anywhere

The Glaro Glider all-purpose Platform Carts, Platform Trucks, and Utility Carts are the most versatile of their kind.  When design and appearance are important, Glaro Glider Platform Trucks and Luggage Carts are the products of choice.  With many options available, these durable but attractive ”work-horses” are built strong for demanding facilities such as; industrial, hospitality, healthcare, office, educational, transportation facilities, or for general use at any property.  These platform trucks are designed to easily transport any type of equipment, packages, or supplies.  Top property managers and purchasing professionals recognize the advanced qualities and know that Glaro Platform Trucks and Carts are the best value on the market.  They provide optimum performance year after year.

Four Wheel Models

Four wheel models are standard.  Two swivel and two rigid solid rubber casters absorb shock and move quietly over hard or carpeted surfaces, efficiently transporting 1500 pounds or more of supplies, luggage, or equipment.  Specify the optional “pneumatic wheel” upgrade for a more cushioned ride.

Six Wheel High Performance Option Provides “Pinpoint Maneuverability”

For additional load capacity and unsurpassed “pinpoint maneuverability” order the Glaro “optional 6 wheel configuration” available in solid rubber or pneumatic casters.  Transport heavy loads with ease and control with Glaro 6 wheel models.  These impressive models enable the operator to turn and navigate anywhere including tight corners and narrow passage ways while safely avoiding contact with personnel, walls, and objects.  They can rotate in place for a U-turn in a hall or in an elevator for speed and efficiency.  Walls and door frames will not get damaged because operators can easily push or pull the trucks from either end.

Platform Truck Casters

Casters are one of the most important components responsible for the durability and performance of all platform trucks.  Glaro only uses the finest heavy duty 8” diameter ball bearing, solid rubber casters that move heavy loads and provide dependable, smooth, quiet, and easy performance year after year.  Optional brakes are available.

Platform Truck Bumper Systems

Glaro Platform Trucks feature a tough full wrap-around non-marking vinyl black or gray bumper that neatly meets the edge of the deck covering. 

Platform Truck Deck and Chassis Construction

Uniquely designed and engineered, these Glaro Glider platform carts feature a thick, all weather, plywood deck, mounted to a heavy duty powder coated steel chassis which is available in four convenient lengths (35’, 40”, 48”, and 60”).  All decks are 24” wide.  This construction makes it easy to transport heavy loads.  The materials used and the design will insure that these Platform Trucks, Luggage Carts, and Bellman Carts will stand up under any weather conditions wet or dry, hot or cold.

Platform Truck and Platform Cart Ergonomic Handles

Glaro design and engineering are geared for versatility as well as durability.  That is why models Value Series models offer a choice of one or two heavy gauge 1.5” diameter ergonomic aluminum handles with an attractive grill.  Handles may be removed to accommodate oversized freight. 

Platform Truck Deck Coverings

Four deck coverings are available to suit every type of facility: stain resistant Olefin carpeting available in several colors, attractive black or gray coin design non-slip vinyl, clear coated satin aluminum, and hardened steel in a choice of black or silver vein baked powder coated finishes.  An additional twenty seven optional powder coated finishes are also available. 

Removable Side Containment Rail Option

Optional removable side containment rails to better secure small parcels during transport are available.  Because of the built in spring action tubular design they may be easily used or removed on one or both sides.  Side containment rails are an excellent choice when transporting small, multi-stacked, or light packages especially when going over uneven surfaces.
