Hand trucks are called cart, dolly or trolley. Hand trucks generally have an L shape, with the handle at one end, wheels on the other end supporting a deck or platform. There are two variants of hand trucks: 4 wheel cart and 2 wheel dolly. On a 4 wheel cart, heavy items are loaded on the platform which then can be easily transported. In case of a 2 wheel dolly, the platform is placed under items to be loaded, which then allows easy maneuvering.
