Package Type: Standard Packaging
I was disappointed when I opened the box and saw a bunch of plastic and flimsy looking parts, but this thing turned out to be pretty decent and useful.

PROS

- Size/form is great, many uses
- Lightweight, seems like it can maybe handle the advertised load
- Stair glides are a nice touch
- Easy to assemble

CONS

- The overall construction is a little flimsy, so be careful
- The handle locking pins are a bit of a hassle
- Wheel locking pins would fall out and needed to be bent -- make sure the pins don't fall out when you're using the truck
- Poorly packaged .. basically a bunch of parts stuffed in the box without any padding, the handle had some scratches
- Some of the plastic parts have sharp edges so be careful when you handle it

I agree with most reviewers. This hand truck is very capable and a great value for the money. I replaced my old washer with new steam-washer (315 pounds). Instead of paying for delivery and installation I bought this hand-truck and installed new washer myself.

Pros:
- it was easy to get in and out of the house, up and down the stairs
- it feels sturdy
- light
- long handle gives you extra leverage when needed
- love 4 wheel dolly option

Cons:
- handle locking pins are a bit of a hassle
- assembly instruction is terrible (but assembly is actually easy)
- would be nice to have folding base plate (for storage)

I read most of the negative reviews of this hand truck before ordering. I decided that it was the proper size, weight, and price for what I needed. I needed something to help move my daughters in and out of their college dorms. A large, metal hand truck would just be overkill.

1. My item arrive in an undamaged box.
2. All parts were in the box, and the instructions were clear*
3. To assemble, I used TWO 9/16 box end wrenches, a hammer (to help get axel through frame) and needle nose pliars (to bend the ends on the cotter pins)
4. Total time to assemble was less than 15 minutes, and I was distracted by the Giants / 49ers game
5. Assembled, it fit easily in the trunk of my Ford Freestyle. I imagine it would fit in most midsize sedan trunks and probably some compact car trunks.
6. I wouldn't try to move major appliances with it, but getting boxes and luggage and stuff wheeled across campus will be easy.

* Confirming an error on the instructions noted in several reviews: The instructions includes a line item that says to install the axel with washers, mentioning 2 washers and 1 washer. It's easy to think that this means there should be 6 washers in the box. However, the parts list and the illustration for installing the axel show only two washers, one on the each side between the cotter pin and the wheel. I think the instuction is just poorly worded. However, if I hadn't already read the reviews here on Amazon, I might not have understood what was going on.

The hand truck was delivered in a badly damaged box with protruding metal staples and one partially opened box end. There was absolutely no packaging material inside the box and not a single part was secured in the box. ALL painted parts were scratched; down to the metal in many cases.

It is unclear if so much damage occurred because the parts were ineptly tossed in the box without packaging materials or if we were shipped a badly repackaged, damaged and/or used item. Based on other reviews, I believe this is typical of how the manufacturer packages this product. We only needed to remove the badly scratched handle and platform before making the decision to return the cart. We ordered a slightly more expensive and sturdy cart from another manufacturer that arrived well packaged and undamaged.

It is unclear to me how Harper Trucks can possibly believe that it is appropriate to ship a consumer such a poorly packaged product that will inevitably be damaged in transit. I would not recommend the harper trucks PJDY2223AO nylon convertible hand truck.

This product's description states that it has "8-inch solid rubber wheels"... but it doesn't. It's wheels are plastic. Falsified product description!

I have verified this myself. Anyways, I didn't return this product yet.. as it's good in other respects. I simply bought a pair of solid rubber wheels elsewhere (Waxman 4383455 Steel Hub Wheel, Black Tire and Red Rim, 8-Inch by 1.75-Inch) of size 8-inch by 1.75 inch with 0.5 inch axle, and they worked fine with this cart.

Great dolly - very easy to assemble. Works great, sturdy, and easily adjustible.

I thought I'd provide some pics of the product, as arrived, and the assembly process. In total, from opening the original packing, to being able to use it, took approximately 15 minutes. You'll need two wrenches (they really should have included two of those cheapo, "throw away" wrenches for the four bolts) and maybe needle-nose pliers for the two cotter pins, as well, for the two wheels, but that's it.

I just moved a 250 lb. filing cabinet after assembling it, and it works great.
