The Magna Cart™ Ideal. Engineered with toughness in mind…holds up to 150 lbs., but only weighs 9 lbs. Compacted, it measures only 27" tall and 2" wide…great for carrying on planes (fits in overhead compartments as it has fully retractable wheels), trains and automobiles.... and every office or warehouse. It's slim size helps it store anywhere....on a peg hook in your garage or closet, in your trunk, a nook or cranny in your RV...just about anywhere. It extends to 39" tall to confirm to almost any body length comfortably...and the 5" rubber (no air ever needed) rolls on nearly any surface smoothly.

Product Description

Rugged like a hand truck yet designed to fold more compactly than most luggage carts, the Magna Cart is a favorite of anyone who regularly hauls gear around. The MCI opens instantly with the touch of a button, and go wherever you need it. You can use it at home to carry in groceries, at the office to move heavy reams of paper, at the marina to haul your boat provisions, or on an overseas trip to help with multiple pieces of luggage. And when you're done using the MCI, the cart folds to just over 2 inches thick thanks to the retractable wheels. The Magna Cart is so compact that you can easily fit it in a car trunk or a closet.Specifications: Extends to 39 inches tall Folds to 28 inches tall and 2.5 inches thick 15-inch wide steel base plate Rugged 19mm steel frame with parallel tubes 150-pound capacity Weighs under 9 pounds

The Magna Cart "Ideal" is apparently the next step in the evolution of the original Magna Cart. It seems new as of March 2009. In the meantime, the manufacturer Welcom came out with the "Magna Cart Elite 2". All 3, as of this writing, are available on Amazon, but I expect the Ideal is the replacement of the original Magna Cart, which I expect to become extinct soon.

Bolstering that notion is the fact I saw some original Magna Carts in my local Big Lots store (same price as Amazon, but Amazon had free shipping). So, I've now been able to handle both.

What I can say is the differences between the original and Ideal are incremental, and not as big as I had thought. Basically, the Ideal is an "Elite 2" model, scaled down to the size of the original Magna Cart. What a great idea. In photos, the Ideal and Elite 2 look significantly more sturdy than the original MC, however being able to handle the original, I was still quite impressed. Actually, the weight of the original and Ideal are about the same. The folding mechanism and wheels also. The floor tray is similar (both metal). Extended height: same (I did mark the distance to my belly button for memory). I think folded height is same too. Width seemed to be the same, but not sure. The biggest differences I could see was the structural system forming the back and handle.

The original can extend and collapse with just one hand. The Ideal requires two hands, using the yellow button on the big gray crossbar as you can see in the pics. However, I believe the Ideal's system is sturdier (just not as convenient). I admit, the original's system is pretty slick. And actually, the original has 2 height settings. Albeit, they are close to each other, but it does give more flexibility.

Very Happy~!

Pros:

1) I'm 6FT tall and the handle telescopes to a reasonable height, other models seem to be too short this one is perfect.

2) Solid construction does not feel like cheap plastic, the cart says that it can carry 150LB load, and to be honest I bet it can, this surprised me.

3) Value for Money another well built Chinese product.

Con's: None.

This truck has been very helpful to a 79year old woman in getting a
50Lb. bag of mulch out of the car trunk. I was able to drag it out
right onto the cart, and wheel it out to the patio where I was able
to disperse the mulch over my flower bed.
The truck also folds up quite easily to take up less room in the garage.
I still have potting soil to put down, so I think it was well worth the purchase. And I'm sure it will help laying snow remover onto the patio when winter comes. {not looking forward to that}
Yes, I would recommend it even to seniors, since it is fairly easy to handle.

BEWARE ! --- Buyer Beware !! - I bought the heavy duty version of this hand truck which works great UNTIL the black plastic brace holding the middle telescoping rod breaks and the rod keeps falling out as the rod goes up and down when used & folded. The problem that the securing black brace or bracket is made of plastic which eventuslly cracks. Sure you can put the rod back in place and tighten the screw but the rod will only continue to fall out each time you raise the handle because the middle rod is only secured by a cracked black plastic brace/bracket.

I work as an local auto parts deliveryman. Many times during the day I have to deliver either one large box, or many small heavy items such as brake rotors and drums, 5 gallon pails of chemicals, and large industrial batteries. (Just to name a few) I use a Ford Ranger to deliver, so carrying a full-size hand truck is tedious and takes up way to much space!

The Magna cart is wonderful. With its compact size I am able to store it behind, beside, or in front of the passenger's seat when not in use, ready for deployment!

But when deployment is needed, it is easy and smooth. Flip the folding apron down, pull the handle up, and you're ready to go! The rubber-tired wheels roll very smooth regardless of the weight being beared, and terrain being rolled over.

I have carried 70-90 lb batteries, and the Magnacart did not show any strain, bowing, or such. I can honestly say that the 150lb rated capacity should not be too far off from the truth.

If your someone who totes around heavy or bulky items, yet does not want a huge overkill-capacity hand truck to deal with, this product is for you!

Needless to say, my coworkers thought the Magnacart was so neat, we now have a fleet of four in our small store!

As a freelance courier, the Magna Cart Ideal Hand Truck has been a lifesaver (or at least a backsaver) on many occasions. It will hold up to 150 pounds, is lightweight, easy to open up for use (simply hold it on the ground, push the platform down with your foot, and the wheels automatically unfold along with the rest of it) and collapses for storage in your vehicle just as easily.

It has a convenient handle that telescopes for use, and collapses for storage.

The only issue I have with the Magna Cart is that the handle isn't long enough. You have to bend over slightly in order to pull it, and that can be painful on your back. It should either have a longer handle, or have another handle included in it that enables you to extend that handle even farther than the first one. Otherwise, it's a great product!
