The machine can be loaded in the upright position (best for heavy pieces) or in the recumbent (transport) position for lighter items. An extendable arm stabilizes the machine in the upright position.
The front wheels are free-turning on roller bearings. The rear wheels are driven by a solid shaft mounted on heavy duty bearing blocks. The solid drive gives the machine stability when driving on ramps. Steering is accomplished by lifting slightly on the handle and rotating the machine. Because the load is well positioned over the wheels for good balance, this steering motion can be accomplished easily, even with heavy loads. The short wheel base distance of 14 inches further simplifies the steering process. There is no reverse drive gear. The machine can be hand pulled backwards or simply turned around by the above-described steering method. A hand brake is there to aid in stopping, just in case.
