Solid construction and folds down to a convenient size.
I bought this hand truck right before a move and it held up through many heavy box loads with no issues. I used it to move a dryer just last week. It is very sturdy and folds small enough to fit in the tightest of car trunks. I like that the toe plate is flat, it makes it easy to slide it under flush to the floor items like heavy boxes.

Beware if used items
I received my used model today. It said it was in "acceptable" condition. Not really. W one wheel was destroyed and the tire was off. Luckily I'm have considerable metal working skills and tools. It took about an hour but I got yhe tire on the wheel and was able to hammer and dolly the wheel back into shape for the most part. I had to drill through the wheel on front and back and put sheet metal screws through the wheel and into the tire in three places. I don't think the average consumer would have been able to make these repairs. I don't know what the definition of "acceptable conditon" is but I think it should at least mean it is usable. It definately was not usable when I took it out of the box. Buyer beware of used items. I think if these wheels fail I can go to a local hardware store and find suitable replacements.

BEST stow-away handtruck
I've owned one of these handtrucks for nearly 10 years, and it's stood up to all sorts of use and abuse... this new one was bought as a gift to give a friend. Mine looks a bit worse, but it still folds up neatly for transport and hangs nicely, out of the way on a garage wall. And it will carry plenty of weight, comfortably.

Fits in a Ford Mustang trunk!
We've purchased three of these. I've not found a hand truck that collapses better or holds a greater load that will fit nicely in my convertible Ford Mustang trunk. PRO's: price, and folds compact like no other hand truck available. CONS: I had a wheel fail on our first one. I searched far and wide for a replacement wheel and finally purchased one for about $60 - though it came with a new hand truck.

Not very sturdy
Within a few weeks of relatively light use, the nuts started to fall out. I replaced them all at my local hardware store for a couple of bucks. That did the trick, but the fact that it happened at all shows that Safco doesn't really care about making quality products.
But then, after about a year, the aluminum actually started to bend and even tear. I've never lifted more than 125lbs with this thing at once (half of what it's supposedly rated for)! It's mostly sitting in a closet when I don't need to travel.
I definitely can't recommend this hand truck for anyone who needs to move around more than 50lbs at a time, maybe, and I will be steering clear of Safco in the future.

Just know that repair will be required👍
I use these hand trucks for work, and I use and abuse them until the wheels fall off. Then I'll grab some lawnmower replacement tires and retro fit them to the axle. Works great

A little flimsy, but works and stores compactly
As the title summarizes, this hand truck works as advertized. It is not a heavy duty hand truck and the weight limit should be adhered to. The small hard wheels don't roll easily on rough surfaces. On the more positive side, it does store compactly so is a good option to have in the garage or closet. This hand truck has come in handy several times.
