    Answer This Question

    A:  There is a Fold button that you press. Push the button and the handle and it will collapse.

      A:  The top handle collapses. The wheels fold in so it's small enough to fit inside your trunk.

        A:  If your Shifter is in the upright position, you will want to transform it to the four wheel hand truck. To do this, you would need to squeeze the lever and flip the handle. When the cart is in the 4 wheel position, a small rectangular button is exposed that's labeled "fold." Making sure that the toe plate is folded flat, and being mindful of your fingers, push this button and the cart can then be folded flat for storage. There is a video on the Cosco Products YouTube channel, which can be found by typing Cosco Shifter in the search bar.

          Q:I plan to use this hand truck in horizontal position to store a 70 to 80 pound generator long term in a shed. I need something with four wheels and a handle. Is this a good candidate? And does it have locking wheels?

          Answer This Question

          A:  For your question, this is a good bet. However, it doesn't have locking wheels so that might be something you need to check

            1 found this answer helpful

            A:  Yes it is capable of handling such load in the configuration your looking for but it does not have locking wheels. I would recommend a platform cart or dolly if you plan on using it for a long term horizontal storage option.

            by|Jan 5, 2022

              A:  No becasue the small wheels mess up and in my job i use it to move barley small packages and the wheeld messed up so you can just imagine how this dolly will do with 70-80 lbs I do not recommend at all very bad product

                A:  The Cosco Shifter does not have locking wheels. If the temperature in your shed gets extremely hot during the summer months, the wheels could potentially develop a slight flat spot if the cart were weighted for prolonged periods of time.

                  A:  This will not be a good option for your need. You need something with 4 same-size wheels.

                    1 found this answer helpful

                    A:  No Locking wheels, it may be a little light weight for your application. It is fairly well constructed and may work for you. The foot isn't very long (maybe about 6-8") don't know the dimensions of your generator but you may want to take that into consideration. Hope this helps.

                        I love this handtruck it's so light and easy to store. I use it every day at work. The only thing I wish the handle was a little higher. As you can see I really pile on the parcels. Lol!

                          This is one of the best products I’ve bought in a long time! It has made my life easier for: bringing in groceries / purchases all at once rather than in multiple trips; bringing in heavy items (bottled water, laundry, plastic storage totes, bulk groceries) by myself. It was especially useful while preparing to evacuate for Hurricane Irma and upon returning home. PROS/CONS: the tiny instructions on the handle left me completely frustrated. An instruction pamphlet would be ideal. However, after watching the helpful online video a couple of times, and familiarizing myself with the features, I was able to use it with little difficulty. It has 5-inch plastic front wheels and 2-1/4 inch caster back wheels. They are noisy on textured concrete, quieter on asphalt but roll fine on both. They do not work as well on carpet, requiring more strength to pull the cart. In the 4-wheel platform cart position, the height of the handle from the frame to where your hand would be is 28 inches. That could be a little longer but that’s a minor grievance compared to how assistive it has been. At just under 15 lbs., it’s one of the lightest I could find and lightweight for a hand truck-cart listed with a 300 lb. load capacity. It does not include a load strap because it is meant for light to medium weight items. This convertible hand truck-cart is suitable for transporting/moving packages, large storage totes, multiple or heavy grocery products, luggage and other similar items. But, iyou want or need to secure whatever you are moving, bungee cord, cotton strapping or a cinch strap would be suitable. SUMMARY: Very satisfied with product; would purchase again; would recommend depending upon needs.

                            I've been looking for a decent collapsible dolly that isn't complete junk from China for a long time. Everything I've tried, including the Milwaukee brand from Home Depot, which literally fell apart within 48 Hours of normal use! This thing on the other hand seems to be very well built, pretty solid all-around. Perfect for my business. Just wish the bottom plate was a little bigger but as long as I use straps the secure large boxes or bulky items it works fine.

                            Cleverly Designed and Functional Hand Truck and Cart
                            I recently obtained one of the most cleverly designed products I have seen in a long time, which is the Shifter 300 lb. 2-in-1 Convertible Hand Truck and Cart. It easily converts from a hand truck to a cart with the push of a button, and folds up for easy storage. The hand truck/cart weighs about 14 lbs and has a carrying capacity is 300 lbs. It's definately not designed for heavy duty tasks, however, it’s perfect for moving most bulky items around the house. I store it in the van for use in carrying items into the house. I am very impressed with the design and functionality of the Shifter Convertible Hand Truck and Cart. This item fits into the category of things you don’t realize you need, but can’t imagine not having it once you use it.

                            Good for bins; won't replace your steel dolly
                            I have a steel furniture dolly that i've owned for years, the type with the big inflatable tires. Unfortunately, it' has sat outside for years, and is mostly rusted, and doesn't work well. It has served me well, moving furniture from one place to another. When i first saw this product, i though it would make a great replacement for my aging dolly. Putting it to the test, it is a functional product, but falls short of replacing a sturdy workhorse. SHIPPING I ordered this item online. It arrived in an amazing amount of packing. The cart was wrapped in plastic, inside of a box, which was surrounded by peanuts, and then placed inside another box. This thing came out of the cart looking fantastic. Best packing ever. FEATURES The fact that this dolly folds into itself, fitting in a very small space is pretty impressive. The green lever in the middle makes switching from cart mode to dolly mode and back to storage mode instantaneous. It doesn't weight a whole lot, making it portable, and easily sortable with a minimal footprint. Small wheels give this dolly great control and a small turn radius. Unfortunately this also means that this cart will not work well on rough terrain such as asphalt, dirt, and grass. When in storage mode, there are clips that pop up to lock the handle securely to the frame. The handle does NOT extend. USABILITY The ideal application for this dolly is really in hand-cart mode. I can see a fantastic use for this product moving large storage bins back and forth between the car and, say, a trade show. It gives you portability and a decent load capacity. However, the dolly mode falls short of expectations. For starters, the bottom lip used to actually lift things is too.... wobbly. It is unstable due to the ability to fold it up for storage mode. When open for use, it does not keep at 90 degrees, bending back much more than expected. That means that the dolly handle must go down further than normal to actually lift a load off the ground. The dolly is rated at 300 lbs, but when attempting to move a 200 lbs load, the platform wobbled, and was generally unstable. I would not feel comfortable using this to move overly large or heavy items. Longevity is also questionable. SUMMARY This is a great little dolly if you need help moving large bins back and forth. Being so compact and storable makes it easy to throw in the back of any car and take it to go. However, don't expect it to replace a standard dolly used for moving furniture; it falls short.

                            Great Home Hand Truck
                            This is an awesome hand truck/cart. It comes already assembled. You just pull the handle up and bring it up to the cart. Then pull the handle again and it extends to the hand truck. It will hold up to 300 lbs. It folds down just as easy to a great storage size. I love this because it's light weight but sturdy and it fits in a closet for around the house moving needs.
