The Husky T-326 is the finest quality Industrial trike in the
market. Usually you have to read the whole review or skip to the last
paragraph to get the synopsis or the writers opinion of a product but we
feel the T-326 is so good we just could not wait with telling you what
we thought. There are a number of companies offering Industrial
Tricycles and Husky is leading the way. Husky is part of a 100 year old
bicycle and parts distribution business in Texas called HLF. HLF
distributed Worksman industrial bicycles and tricycle for years but
after becoming fed-up with Worksman, HKF decided to come out with their
own line of bicycles and tricycles. HLF knew they could offer a much
higher quality bicycles and tricycles than they were currently
distributing. Husky T-326 trike is their flagship model and carries the
highest cargo capacity in the industry with a 600 Lbs weight limit.
The frame on the T-326 is TIG welded together in Taiwan, I would have
to say the welds are beautiful and of the highest quality in the
industry. The frame is constructed out of oversize shaped and
manipulated steel tubing with a nice low step through so you can get on
and off the trike easily. The frame is made in two pieces and easily
bolts together with four bolts.
Husky T-326 comes stock with a single speed Shimano coaster brake.
Shimano is the premium maker of coaster brake hubs and offers the most
reliability and serviceability. The coaster brake offers the most
reliable way to stop the trike and is preferred by most factories and
warehousing users. Husky also offers the T-326 with a three speed
coaster brake option. The Chain and front sprocket are both extra thick
compared to a standard bike for added durability and reliability.
The front brake is a simple “V” style that is welded to the fork like
most bikes on the market today. The front brake comes with some large
oversize brake pads which are more than capable of easily stopping the
Seat: The Seat on the Husky T-326 is and
extra wide version that is thickly padded. On the bottom of the seat
there is a steel frame for extra durability with a standard bicycle seat
post clamp. If the seat is not to your liking, you can easily change
it because it uses a standard seat post clamp like most bikes have. The
seat attaches to an oversize seat pole that can be adjusted for
different riders heights easily.
Ride: Simply big
wheels roll better than smaller wheels and the Husky T-326 come with
the larger 26″ wheels whereas most adult trike use 24″ wheels; and the
larger wheels offer a smoother ride. Husky also offers a solid tire
version for customers who will be riding the trike in factories which
may have metal shavings on the floor or other sharp objects that may
give you a flat tire. The Husky T-326 is an industrial tricycle and
designed for durability, not how smooth it feels over a bump. We found
the steering to be light and crisp and to our liking. Husky also offer a
trike called the T-124 which come with a 24″ wheel which is slightly
more maneuverable due to its smaller size. If you are a large person
you may find the distance between the seat and handlebars a bit close,
if the seat was changed you could get farther back and away from the
Other Stuff: The T-326 come with a
large oversize rear basket and you can get platform or rear lockable
cabinet in place of the basket if you wish. The trike come with three
fenders, chain guard and a reflector set.
Simply the finest quality industrial tricycle on the market. The Husky
T-326 has a heavy duty oversize frame that has beautiful quality TIG
welds and smooth consistent paint. The rear axle is the thickest in the
market which gives the T-326 a 600 Lbs capacity. The large 26″ wheels
roll very well and come with super thick eleven gauge heavy duty
spokes. Comes with a wide comfortable seat, heavy duty inter tubes and
wide puncture resistant tires. The T-326 can be outfitted with a rear
basket, platform or lockable cargo box. The T-326 can be shipped
unassembled by Fedex or UPS or fully assembled by Semi truck.
Cons: None, except it is a bit more expensive than other brands.
