Bulk Tank Inc (BTI) introduces the new Heavy Duty Handle, built with an aluminum body and longer-lasting stainless steel trigger. The HD Handle offers more knuckle room while providing additional leverage and easier access when opening and closing hopper valves on pneumatic tank trailers.
The HD Handle features a stainless steel tip at the end of the trigger, which significantly reduces wear and practically eliminates breaking common with most aluminum handles. The tip allows the handle and trigger to skate across the notch plate freely, even in severe use. Additionally, the angled design of the handle allows plenty of space between the hopper valve and knuckles. The lengthened handle and ergonomically curved design provides more room for the operator to apply leverage necessary to easily open or close any valve.
The traditional straight design used for decades allows minimal space for opening and closing valves. By being hard to open, it frequently is the recipient of blows from tools and boots. The additional stress creates a handle that slips and quickly wears out. The new strong, but lightweight aluminum HD Handle eliminates all these problems.
The smooth, rounded corners offer a comfortable grip, while the longer overall length of 13.3" (338 mm) brings the handle out to the operator. This longer, curved HD Handle provides additional clearance and increased leverage, so valves are easier to open and close. The rounded, stainless steel lever tip decreases wear to the plate and delivers optimal wear resistance, even in the harshest environments. The stainless steel tip easily indexes over the teeth of the plate and still snaps back into position, even after receiving countless blows. This handle is proven to withstand abnormal wear and abuse. Cost of the HD Handle compares with traditional handles.
As with all of its products, BTI unconditionally guarantees this handle will outperform any similar products on the market. For more information, call 1-800-841-5524 (573-518-0600) or visit www.bulktankinc.com.
