Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HouseholdRelocation Worked as Described
No setup required, it just ships as one bulky piece. It feels very solid.
We used this for a long distance residential move with stairs on both ends of the move. We hauled a full size washer and dryer, a large dorm-size fridge, and a full size dresser, as well as countless boxes with no problems.
The tires are a bit over sized and tended to get in the way when making tight turns.
The stair gliding frame on the back was better than nothing, but this is not a full fledged stair climber appliance hand truck. That said, we did find them useful, and I would pick a model with them over one without in the future.

I really like the price, I use it enough to move appliances including Dishwasher and Microwave. It is lightweight and with good tires

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by soundpro Glad I got it
No assembly required. It's lighter than metal hand trucks and cheaper than the aluminum ones. Easy going up and down steps and in and out of vans on ramps. I'd prefer solid rubber tires but I can add that later. I got it because of its reduced weight.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MountainMark Misleading brand name and troubled tires.
Two things on this product:
1. The brand name is misleading. This is not made by the Mikwaukee Tools corporation, even though it is branded as "Milwaukee" and carefully follows the Milwaukee tools color scheme. It's actually made by a company called "Gleason Corporation". When you're trying to get replacement parts, you're probably going to have trouble finding where to go (I did).
2.Brand new from the store: both tires completely flat. One tire could be filled. The second tire would not hold air at all. If you're looking for a reliable tool, this isn't it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Athens125 excellent product
This hand truck works well with furniture. It is especially good going down stairs because of the nylon bracking at the back. Excellent purchase.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Can't take the weight
This hand truck is supposed rated for 600 pounds, but when I tried to lift a 240 pound box with it, both tires immediately separated from their valve stems and went flat. The truck was only a couple of years old, and lightly used.
I've read in other reviews that there are problems with this hand truck's tires (go flat on their own, corrode after a short amount of time, etc.) and this may have been my situation as well. In any case, it's unacceptable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tomewood Really nice hand truck.
I was going to buy this type of hand truck from a large industrial supplier and did a quick internet search to see where else it was available. Saw this, and researched the Milwaukee brand (not the same as the hand tools). As good, or better, than the competition, and HD's price was half of any other place on the internet. This thing is rugged and lightweight . . . quality throughout . . . and (since we NEVER buy Chinese-made anything) Made in the USA!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CTHornet Works good! As expected.
I got this hand truck to help move sections of wooden dock that we take out of and put into a lake each year.
The unit is surprisingly light as the frame is plastic instead of steel. The frame is still plenty sturdy and durable. I got this model because the stair climbing rails extend much higher than on the metal units, which was a plus for my application. I also was pleased with the big wheels as my application was on rough ground outdoors.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dean Sturdy, big wheels help with a lot
This is a great product overall, and I would certainly recommend it. The only thing that I liked better about one that I had previously used is the stair climber on this unit is just the shape of the frame. This works fine, but it was better to have the track belt thing that some use, which mades this dolly scrape vs glide.

This medium duty hand truck is perfect for moving feed around my farm. I am 74 years old and no longer lifting 100 lbs on to my shoulder and prefer not to with 50 lbs. This truck does the job perfectly, even negotiating a flight of stairs in my home. I have used it two months without problems.

This rugged hand truck is light and easy to handle, with all the features I need. Large pneumatic tires help it roll easily and the stair rails make it simple to get heavy loads up a flight of stairs. This is just the thing to help an old man like me get my heavy jobs done quickly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gramps Extremely light weight yet very strong.
I needed a light weight sturdy cart with pneumatic tires for bringing some heavy plants in to our home for the winter. I needed one with stair runners because of our split entry and some plants were going down and others up. This cart fulfilled all my requirements.

I too have a hand truck that is lightly used and only several years old. When I went to use it both tires are flat and separated from the hub. They can't be filled. Am now looking to see how to proceed.

We purchased this item for our office, mostly moving water bottles. Although it sat unused most of the time both tires went flat. It will cost as much to replace the tires as it would to buy a new one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trev Excellent value for the price
I found this hand cart to be sturdy, yet light weight. It was perfect for my primary need of transporting items up and down stairs.
Unlike some of the reviews that I read, my cart had new tires and could be used immediately.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mike Overall a very good product ..... with the exception of the tires. The tires have SEVERELY dry rotted after only owning this for 2-3 months. I'd recommend purchasing but make certain the tires look OK.

So far I like it. The tires were inflated and I like the reinforcement on the back. I haven't gotten into a lot of moving yet but what I have done it has worked very well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MHRCPA To Many Drawbacks
I had purchased the hand truck to navigate loads of books, files, groceries, etc. up and down the stairs in my three story townhouse,
The hand truck is light weight, its tires are substantial, it moves easily without a load, it has a high weight load rated capacity, and it is rust proof,
The hand trucks designer apparently never field tested the product.
When attempting to move any object, wider than the space between the tires, the hand truck will not move as the object rubs against its tires. The tire's diameter are to large, and/or its axle should be further back.
When navigating up or down stairs I found the angle of the hand trucks handle to be raked to far back making it impossible for my six foot frame to move the hand truck on an appropriate down angle without sitting on each step. The handle should be taller and not raked so far backward.
The hand truck has a set of runners advertised to ease the truck over stairs. The problem is that the runners are set so far forward they never touch a stair tread.
For Safety reasons, when carrying a large sized and/or large weighted load, a strap should be used to secure the object to the hand truck. There is neither such a strap nor provision on the frame to feed a strap through?
In summary I would not endorse this product.
