Why Use Gas Cylinder Trolleys?

Gas cylinders are notoriously heavy and cumbersome to lift and move around, especially the larger 80 litre ones. Many people try to tilt them and roll them around on the bottom edge. Whilst this may work for a short distance it is not advisable, especially for larger distances. Gas cylinders can easily be dropped when handled in this way; they are very heavy and you certainly wouldn't want one dropping on your foot!

Using a gas cylinder trolley makes light work of handling gas bottles whilst minimising potential health and safety issues.

More About Gas Bottle Trolleys

A gas cylinder trolley is somewhat like a traditional sack truck. They have a base platform where the gas cylinder sits and a couple of robust wheels fitted to a rear axle in order to move it around.

There are however a couple of key differences; the majority of gas bottle trolleys will incorporate curved supports, often at the top and bottom of the trolley. A gas bottle will sit within these curved support brackets to keep them upright.

You will also find that this type of gas bottle handling equipment incorporates a couple of chain straps which are fitted to one side of the trolley framework. The chain is wrapped around the front of the cylinder and attached to the other side of the frame. These chain straps ensure the gas bottles can not fall over whilst in transit or when stationary.

The handle at the rear of the trolley is used to tilt the trolley backwards to lift the bottom platform and cylinder off the floor so that the wheels can move freely. The gas cylinder can now be pushed around to wherever it is required with ease.

Remember to follow all safety protocols when handling and transporting potentially dangerous gas cylinders.
