Northern Industrial Tools 2-in-1 Steel Hand Truck/Platform Truck - 800-Lb. Capacity
Well made hand truck.
I had to purchase a new hand truck to replace a unit that was bought a number of years ago at a discount store that lost a wheel. This unit is well made and was easy to put together. Although I have not used it much during the limited time I have had it the unit has held up to all tasks given it so far.

I purchased this product as a fill in until I could get a very heavy duty hand truck. After set up and using this hand truck I was impressed with the way it can handle heavy items and I am glad to say that not only is this my primary use hand truck, its the only hand truck i use. Great product, great value!

2-in-1 Steel Hand Truck/Platform Truck - 800-Lb. C
I purchased this item a few years back and have put alot of miles on it. I primarily use it when I'm helping friends & family moving to other houses / apartments. The versatility of the standard use two-wheeler along with the platform capability make this a valuable asset. The pneumatic tires are a must for smooth travel while negotiating rough ground, uneven surfaces, door thresholds, & loading ramps. The unit is duty enough to heavily load it while keeping the load controlled yet; even with the platform capability; it's reasonably lightweight.

First Sight Review
I was well impressed with the overall make of this unit. After reviewing online and a quick look at the store I could tell this would work for my needs. I plan on using this as a base for my inverter TIG welder and gas bottle.
Originally the price rang up at the standard rate but the clerk honored the on line discount when confirmed.
This unit will probably jump to a five when I start using it.

Love this handtruck!
I've had this handtruck for over a year and use it to move sheets of glass and also use it to move my art show paraphernalia to/from my car at art festivals. I find it easy to use and frequently switch from upright to all fours. The large pneumatic wheels are sturdy and make it easy to maneuver over rough ground. I do have to fill with air when I leave heavy loads sitting for a period of time but that's to be expected. I also like that I can lift the handle off so that I then have 2 shorter parts to fit into my small SUV instead of one long, larger piece of equipment.

This was money well spent. The pneumatic tires work real well for moving over grass and for getting things up and down stairs. The smaller wheels are very sturdy. The last unit I had claimed an 800lb capacity but the front wheels were cheap garbage. This unit looks like it will comfortably hold 800lbs though I haven't come close to that so far. The only drawbacks are that the tires don't hold air so I have to refill often (in its defense I don't ever think I've seen tires like these hold air for long periods) and don't forget to store it inside as the interior will rust if it gets wet.

Tax Code Special
While I don't currently own a hand truck I have been researching what would be required to print out and move 1 copy of the Federal Regulation governing the IRS. The 71,654 pages would require over 14 cases of standard 20lb paper to print and would weigh over 716 lbs. This is the least expensive hand truck I could find capable of moving this load in a single trip. And the excellent reviews here have definitely put this truck at the top of my list.

This hand truck works very well. I use it with a 24" x 36" piece of plywood to move AC units into place. Appears to be strong and well made.
