It's hard to tell from the photo, but the wheels and toe plate are very large, which I appreciate. When using the cart, you have a choice of handles that rotate outward, or the top grip, which is bent backward slightly so your hand isn't trapped between the handle and the item you're moving (unlike cheaper collapsible hand carts).
The only thing I don't like about this style of cart: there isn't a bar between the wheels to rest your foot on when lifting or lowering an object. For really heavy items I've relied that bar to have a "controlled decent" when putting the cart upright. However, all collapsible carts have this limitation, so I can't knock this specific model for that.
The heaviest item I've moved so far is full-size arcade machine, which weighs 350 lbs.
I'll let you know if I run into any issues when I move in the near future... but as of now I highly recommend this.
It is sturdily built of aluminum tubes. The heaviest item I've carried so far is about 70 pounds. There is no flexing of the frame and it makes moving the load easy.
The 8" rubber wheels can be pulled up over, or eased down over, steps fairly easily. If the wheels were 10" it would be even easier, although as is it works well.
The unit open up or folds easily. A button on the horizontal bar allows the handle to be extended or collapsed. Pulling the toe plate out also opens the wheels. Pushing the toe plate up rotates the wheels in so they are parallel to the frame and lay flat. It becomes a flat unit no more than a few inches thick for storage. When collapsed it is easy to put the hand truck in the back seat of a car.
The toe plate is rather large which makes it easy to carry large items. I also purchased a steel cable bungee cable to help hold large items in place: Master Lock 3039DAT CamLok Adjustable Steel Cord Bungee Cord
The unit seems very sturdy. I suppose only time will tell.
So far I am very pleased with the hand truck. It makes moving heavy loads quite easy.
I've only had this unit for a short time but so far it has done everything it says it will do and then some!!!
It folds and unfolds easily which is a great feature for transporting in your vehicle. It costs a bit more but it is worth every penny.
Even though it doesn't have pneumatic wheels like similar capacity hand trucks, this thing works well.
The base platform is large so it is easy have a stable load.
It is very well made and a solid piece of equipment. Probably the only hand truck I'll ever need to buy.
If space is not an issue, I will say that this hand truck is solid. I will have to use this hand truck for a while before I decide if the size is a problem for me.
