This dolly is a great item to have at the house if you use it for the proper jobs. I recently picked up this item before I had a big move to a new apartment. Would I recommend this dolly for moving an entire house? Well.... not for moving more than a few boxes. However do I regret purchasing it? Absolutely not, I will be using this dolly for smaller jobs such as moving my guitar amplifiers around or at a tailgate where I need to move a heavy cooler filled with tasty beverages. It does have a 155 lb weight limit and the smaller "one hand" handle makes it difficult to move large or awkwardly shaped items. But it really shines with box shaped items.
Beyond this the design is actually really cool. One of the concerns of buying a full scale dolly is that they are bulky and hard to store if you don't have a shed / spacious garage / or a free closet. This dolly however will telescope down to a great size and fits right in our pantry. It really is a cool design. I think it is a great tool to have and it will see a fair amount of use!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PJCC 36" High Closed, One handed open & shut makes this a traveler's companion!
One hand open and shut probably does not mean much to some people, to me it means freedom. I don't have help moving plants, traveling to a vet with my cats, or moving books and storage boxes.
Doorways, getting in and out of the car all require taking down a Dolly and putting it back up. This design allows you to move items with one hand while folding in seconds.
The telescoping handle can easily be elevated to make a dolly height of 42" and compressed back to 36" while pressing the red button, even with one arthritic hand. One foot opens it and pressing it on a wall or against the ground closes it.
The bottom lift measures 15 1/4" x 10 3/4", slightly small. It appears a very light weight metal.
Costs about the average price of a luggage dolly, but appears sturdier. A depth of 3" maximum.
Someone else might want to test the limits of weight. I like mine too much to break it. Recommended for what it is, a lightweight, one handed dolly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by reb277 Smart design, light weight, good for home use
For the home user, this hand truck will meet almost all requirements. It is light weight (shipped at 11#) and smartly designed to fold for minimal footprint storage. One-handed use is very comfortable with the ergonomically designed handle. Also, the telescoping handle makes it adjustable for the user's or the load's height. It is sturdy. It also has a stylish look compared to traditional hand trucks (not that appearance is important in a hand truck).
So far, everything works very smoothly, including the telescoping handle, the folding for storage, and the actual transporting/moving usage.
There is one feature I would change or add. The wheels are 5" diameter and there's no slide-rails so using it while loaded with cargo up or down stairs is rather "bumpy". I think an improvement would be to either make the wheels significantly larger, or better still, add slider-rails behind the wheels.
But it is still a solid hand truck for home use.

This is a very practical hand truck for up to 155 lbs. It can be made compact with the push of a button and the base is nice and large and can be folded upward. The handle has a nice grip, unlike most hand trucks. And you can transport it in your car when needed. This is perfect for household, office, or vehicle use.

This folding hand truck is light-duty only. You are not going to move any 55 gallon drums or refrigerators with it. In fact, the 155 pound rating seems awfully optimistic. Even the lightest non-folding hand truck is going to be a lot stronger. This is not a substitute for a real hand truck to move heavy items.
However, this hand truck folds down into a nice small package to fit in a car trunk, behind the truck seat, or in an apartment closet, and has more than enough carrying capacity to be useful. Having it with you when you need it can make a lot of difficult jobs easy, and reduce the risk of injuring yourself with things you could carry but probably shouldn't. The packaging shows someone wheeling around several cases of bottled water.
Nothing complicated about folding and unfolding it. The wheels are about 6", big enough to not hang up on every little bump, and the platform is fairly large. There is no provision for sliding on stairs, and the single-pole back is going to make some stacked loads less stable than a non-folding truck - you probably don't want to stack boxes more than 2 high. Considering all the hinged parts and telescoping handle, it is remarkably sturdy.
This hand truck is made for safety and convenience, and scores high on both accounts.
