" Wheels are fixed -- no swivels! Means you can't change direction unless you lift the cart. If I could lift the load on the cart, then I wouldn't need a cart in the first place, product is next-tp-useless -- no, it's useless. If I could give it less than 1 star, I would. "

" We use this model Platform Truck where I work. I was so impressed with its performance that I bought one for my personal use. It will handle whatever you can pile on it, rolls easily, and folds up for compact storage. The assembly instructions are a little vague but I managed to put it together. Great product. "

Works for me

" Negative first - the unit could be easier to assemble, and the push/pull handle could be sturdier.
BUT, it's priced well for what it is, it rolls well, even on carpet. The expandable platform works very well and is solid. I use it mainly for moving brewing equipment around and have no reservations about using it for it's rated load +. It was a good buy for me.

Decent Hand Truck for the Price

" I purchased this because it was on sale and they could deliver to the store for pick-up. Nice option.
It was fairly simple to assemble but I got two wheels wrong on the first try because of very minimal instructions - looking at the photo on the box was lots more helpful than any flyin paper they stuck in with the product.
Once assembled, it rolled around fine but - again - no instructions as to how to expand/contract the base ner how to lower the hand grip, so I had to monkey around with it til I got um both to workin.
The only drawback (so far) is that, folded up, the whole contraption is kinda cumbersome because there's no latch to strap it all together. I'll use my bungees for that since I'll probably need um when I put a lot of stuff on it.
All in all, a fairly good, sturdy, durable product.
