Requires high effort to use

Pros: foldable
Cons: requires high effort
Model Number: Magna Cart (with red handle)
"I use this magna cart to cart moving boxes, heavy grocery, etc. I find myself constantly fighting to keep the handle down. To reach the point where the handle neither wants to go up nor down, it has to be lowered to maybe 1 to 2 feet off the ground, and I'm just carting boxes around 30 pounds.
This poor design is probably a compromise to allow the wheels to fold flat.
The lower part of the cart seems sturdy. But the extension joint area looks weak and flexes somewhat when in use. If you try to cart the maximum load of 150 lbs, I suspect this weak area may break when you try to pull/kick the hand truck into ready position.
I have also a lighter foldable luggage cart and a heavier hand truck. Both of them are more effortless to use than this one."

Reasonable priced easy to use hand truck

Pros: awesome compact design, can unfold/fold-up with just one hand and one leg
Cons: small wheels so may be harder to go up the stairs
"One of the easiest hand truck I've used and very portable and light. Folds up easily and small. If you like the function of those lugages with handles that are easy to extend and compress with a squeeze of the handles. This hand truck is for you."

Great for small odd jobs

Pros: compace lightweight easily stored in garage/car, w/o taking up too much space
Cons: can be a bit unstable when loading items.
"Put this to work camping hauling supplies & palettes of H20 bottles stacked 3 high w/o too much effort; also took it to the Cove and used it to move our gear to/fro the car loading items"
