Nice hand truckAug 14, 2008
By Gregory Law
I'm moving across the country in a few weeks so I decided to purchase a relatively small and light hand truck to do the heavy lifting for me. I really like the fold-up convenience of the Magna Cart Elite 2 because it stores easily in a closet or other out-of-the-way location yet seems to have the capability of easily handling heavy boxes.
Expanding the hand truck is as easy as pressing the yellow button, sliding the handle all the way up, and then pushing the foot out and down. To collapse the hand truck, just follow these same directions in reverse.
This particular hand truck does not come with large pneumatic tires so it may not be particularly well suited for handling stairs. Even so, the tires are large enough that it will make do if you have a small step or two to cross. If you need to cross stairs at an entry way, I recommend using a ramp to make the job a bit easier.

Great hand truckMay 15, 2008
By Fernando Abreu
This hand truck is great. It's handle is a little short for people 5'7" or taller. My wife is 5'5" and she would rate it at 5 stars! It's really compact and light but step on the skid plate and pull up the telescoping handle and it's serious hand truck. Push 1 button, slide the handle down and kick up the skid plate and it will fit behind the seat of a pickup truck.

Great lightweight hand truckOct 28, 2008
Magna Cart Elite 2 Hand Truck
I ordered this hand truck to use for arts and craft shows. I need to transport large tote boxes from my car to the exhibition halls and have struggled with the loading and unloading. After borrowing one from a friend, I ordered my own.
This hand truck is sturdy with an aluminum carrying shelf that extends to 11 inches when folded out. It carries up to 225 lbs., has airless tires and opens with the push of a button.
Another reviewer said it is somewhat low for a tall person. I am 5'7" and find it adequately tall for me.
The handle is padded, so it wheels evenly and rests comfortably in the hand. But best of all -- it weighs only 13 pounds and stores on a wall hook. The wheels fold in so it is only 2 inches deep--great for transporting in my sedan.
How did I ever manage without this wonderful cart?

Light weight and mobileMay 23, 2008

This handtruck folds up nicely for easy storage and transportation. I am able to move items around without straining and without lifting. My able bodied newphews recently used it to move me into my new house. Now I can move the many boxes and unpack them at the bookshelf, file cabinet or other location.

Buyer Beware. Too short !! Update: It's already BrokenNov 04, 2010
By E. Prickley
First off, this is a nice dolly. Well constructed, nice sized rubber wheels and folds up really nice for storage. Here is the number one complaint: The handle is too short. If you're over 5'5" you are going to dislike using this dolly. I'm 5'11" and it's very uncomfortable to use. As soon as you start walking regardless if you're pushing or pulling the dolly your feet start hitting the wheels because it's too close to your body. It's really a pain and can cause you to drop your load. If by chance you're a tall individual 6'1 or taller this dolly is pretty much unusable. Buyer Beware.
Update March 2011: I purchased this cart in October 2010 and as of the other day it's been tossed into the garbage. The extension handle came apart. Stay away from this cart. It's looks cool and modern, but a plain old 2 wheel luggage cart is the way to go.
