Hand Truck

"This hand truck was better than I expected, the only problem I had was with assembly, the bolt holes were drilled wrong and required me to re-drill them witch was no big deal. It is worth the money!!!!!! The only thing that could be better about it would be the drill holes would line up properly from the factory."

"I bought one fo these to move cabinets into our new house. I brought the box home, opened it up and found one of the side rails bent and unusable. The main rails are thin "U" shaped aluminum. If this thing can hold 700 lbs, I'll eat it. Other parts of it are well made. It looks like they just skimped on the main frame. Such a shame... back it goes..."
