Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Movinnovice Light weight, sturdy enough, not sure it works as advertised
What I wanted was an inexpensive, light weight, sturdy, light-duty hand truck with pneumatic tires to help me get bulky items up and down my basement stairs. The added "bonus" feature of "built-in stair climbers" sounded particularly suited to my needs -- Now if I could only figure out how the "stair climbers" work. The thing works fine up and down stairs, but no differently than other hand trucks without this "feature" (which I assume is the fiberglass frame piece that sticks out the back of the truck) To get it in contact with the stairs I'd need to bend down much further than I think is safe for me! That aside, overall I am pleased with it.

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

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.

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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â 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.
