This thing performs better than it looks. 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 assembleCONS- 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

Handy, light and easy to use 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 optionCons:- 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)

Easy to assemble, perfect for home use 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.
