Unfortunately, the construction leaves much to be desired -
The casters are just crap, plain and simple; perhaps the flimsiest, cheapest casters in the world. They fell apart after a few uses.
Also, the machine screws that hold all the bits and pieces together down at the foot plate loosen up quickly. When the screws loosen, things become rickety - you need to tighten them regularly. They have split lock washers on them, but they're made out of cheap steel, so the washers just lose their spring, flatten out and stop keeping things locked together.
Despite these problems, I love the way it collapses into a very compact package - it is the handiest hand truck I have ever had and it takes up very little room when folded up. So I decided to try to make it work better, and I succeeded.
First, I found some new, high quality casters with threaded stems that thread into the place where the old casters went. Worked fine, until the mating threads on the CASTER stripped - more low quality steel in fasteners. Since the mating nut is welded to the hand truck, I got some two part epoxy, glued the stem back in the nut, and clamped it overnight. It's been holding; so far so good.
I also removed the screws that loosen up, put some super glue on the threads, and screwed them back in. So far so good with these, too.
So in a nut shell, if you're willing to put some extra work into this product, it should perform well and for a long time. Perhaps a person actually CAN make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
However, this product is sold through Cymax, and as I would find out later, they don't hold themselves to the same standard of excellence.
As soon as the package arrived, I knew I made a mistake. The box was as light as a feather, and my disappointment was only beginning.
What's inside the box is barely passable as a children's toy. In fact, I have serious doubts that it could even stand up the the task of carting an actual toy from one room to another.
On top of that, to return the item, you'll be hit with a 25% re-stocking fee, and be responsible for shipping costs.
Don't waste your money. You've been warned.

This truck is really handy!!! Well worth the cost in saving my back and cutting down on the number of trips to my car to unload my product.Published 2 months ago by Betsy M.
Cheap casters but folds up very small to fit into a car. Can hold quite a bit of weight and once I switch out the casters will be perfect.Published 13 months ago by Sam B.
I was very pleased with the overall design, however the front handle is actually pretty short which makes it a little awkward to usePublished 15 months ago by Darci Mcferran
Yes it folds. Yes, it has wheels. But, it creaks and groans. The wheels don't spin under heavy loads...and eventually, they won't spin at all. Read morePublished 20 months ago by aleg
