We have one and love it!Sep 08, 2006
By D. Figueroa
I actually bought this on Ebay, but am about to buy a second one here because it's cheaper on Amazon!
This is a fabulous little dolly. It's not really just a luggage cart..everyone has wheeled luggage these days anyway.
We use it in our warehouse to haul 70 pound boxes around and it fits into the car easily so that when it's time to drop off a mountain of boxes at the PO or haul home the things I order on Amazon (grin), it's right there.
Getting a second one so that we can keep one at home, too.
We tried other folding carts and they couldn't handle the weights we were putting on them. This one is great and the price can't be beat.
Don't try this at home, kids, but I was able to lift my 175 pound hubby off the floor and wheel him around on it..it's one tough little dolly.
Update 3 years later: These carts have seen almost daily usage for nearly 3 years now and are still in perfect condition. I have never had a 'personal' dolly last like these. It's truly a superb product.

Great little hand truck. Will buy again.Aug 27, 2007
By H. Wang
I organized all my camping stuffs in several 12-gallon size storage containers. I use this handy truck to transfer those storage containers from car to the tent site. Initiallzy, I was worried if the wheel is too small for outside unpaved roads. But it turns out just fine. The whole construction of this hand truck is solid. Especially, the flat side on the bottom for carrying loads is long enough (not the width) to ensure stable rolling on unpaved roads around camping side. It works great for moving things around. Very good value for this low price. Definitely a good product that I will buy again and I will recommend to my friends.

Folding wheels are great ... and terribleAug 21, 2008
The folding wheels are the best ... and worst feature. They make the unit much easier to carry and store. But they put the pivot point too far behind the load and that throws off the balance.
Unintuitively, it works better with big loads than small; i.e., it is easier to move two boxes than just one! To balance short loads, you have to push the handle too far down (too close to horizontal) to be really comfortable. Fortunately, the handle is long, so it is not too awkward.
Tall loads balance better. Moving one box is easier if you stand it on end than the more natural bottom.

Excellent price for a light duty handcartSep 27, 2006
By M. Montgomery
I just recieved my Manga Card Personal Hand Truck today, so I have given it only a little testing.
Out of the box: It looks great and feels well crafted. Operating it is easy, you can unfold, refold it, extend and retract the handle all with one hand (and one foot). When ordering I was concerned about the handle hight (39") since I am 6'4". But rolling it around feels perfect! However when going up and down stairs, I do have to stoop over a tad. The metal rails for the handle that slide into each other have a lite coating of oil on them, so just don't grab them.
Use: It is easy to tip loads back and start wheeling. However one thing I noticed is that when you tip the cart back, the load does not balance on wheels like a regular full size handtruck. Rather the load is in front of the wheels, therefore you must press down on the handle to keep the cart from standing it self upright. To balance the load you must have the handle near horizontal to the floor.
I bought this hand truck to use for my small business (onsite computer services), so I will only carry lite weight. It is perfect for this duty and a great price. Plus it folds up quickly and takes up little space in my truck. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because for heavier loads, you must balance it by constantly pressing down on the handle.

Not going to work for heavy loadsJan 02, 2009
By C. Fitts
I got this cart as a gift and broke it on it's first day of use. I made sure that I never loaded more than about 100 lbs on it (it's rated for 150 lbs). The problem is not how much you can push with it, but getting it to tilt back with a heavy load without bending the rods in the back (which are very cheap and thin). Once the back is bent it will no longer collapse down. The back is also not very high, which means for a heavy load you have to tilt it back very far and lean down as you walk.
I did appreciate the maneuverability of the wheels and how small it collapsed down. I think that if you are looking for something to use every once in a while to move small things, the Magna Cart will work fine, but if you want something that you can use on a regular basis for loads of more than 50 lbs, this will break in no time flat.
