Magna Cart Flatform 4-Wheeled Hand Truck

by TerriAnn

It wasn’t until we moved into our complex that I realized what an ordeal just bringing groceries home could be. Shopping once a week requires quite a haul of bulky, heavy items from the underground parking, up the elevator, down the hall, then into our home. We tried getting different carts but they were so awkward to put items in and took up a ton of trunk space even when folded down.

After much comparison shopping and justifying the $60 price tag we finally decided on the Magna Cart Flatform 4-Wheeled Hand Truck. Having a flat surface with four wheels is very versatile when placing bags and boxes on it and you don’t struggle with heavy items or balancing them as you do with a two-wheeled dolly. My favorite feature is that it folds down to only 3″ for easy transport.

After using it for a few weeks, we really like it. Even when the ground is a bit uneven, the cart is sturdy enough so nothing shakes off. Some reviewers complained that the two swiveling wheels should have been placed on the other side but it actually works perfectly if you PULL the cart behind you. This takes less effort to move and gives you better control anyway.

Buying this hand truck is a good investment and we plan on using it for a long time. Plus, since it holds up to 300 lbs. it will come in handy if we ever need to move any heavy furniture.

Oh my gosh, so simple to use and practical. I make 3 trips to my car when I take all the student store items to the school, this could be “one and done!” I’m going to have to check that out. Great review!

Oh, we love it. Just pop on a huge Costco bag or stack on some big ‘ol plastic boxes and you’re good to go!

We live right in town and I’ve been looking for something just like this. The lugging was killing my back. What a great idea, this is definitely better than a dolly and worth the investment.

Oh, it is so easy to use! I don’t know how we’d survive without it now! I can even have my 11-year-old daughter pull/push it while I carry other stuff – awesome!

Considering its like $10 to rent a dolley everytime you move, this is a great investment!! And lets not forget just around the house stuff….and what a handsome man you have there.

Thank you, I quite like him myself 🙂 With two kids and an active life, you’ll probably have loads of uses for it.

We could totally use one of those. My brother in law had something like that that we used to move our piano.

The nice thing is that this is not too big for just casually carting stuff around. My daughter even helped us bring the groceries last time.
