It has one strap for securing purposes, which generally works well, but some would prefer a ratchet.
Made of sturdy carbon steel. Folds down for storage. Handle height is adjustable to maximize comfort and efficiency.
It's "light duty" compared to some industrial offerings; check weight limit of any hand truck you buy to make sure it fits your needs.
Cart can be pushed or pulled. Folds easily for storage. Use it for small loads to save your back. Without the included bag, it can be used as a dolly with a capacity of 110 pounds.
This is not a heavy-duty hand truck and therefore won't be suitable for everyone.

Easy to use; decreases the amount of physical effort required by the user. It "walks" over steps or curbs and is great for moving smaller items around the home.

Moving heavy objects up and down stairs can be difficult and even dangerous, but a stair climbing hand truck can fix that. The most important factor in choosing a hand truck is the carrying capacity. Some models can carry up to 800 lbs., but this may not be necessary for your needs. Hand trucks move up and down stairs using either a multi-wheel or belted design that moves over each step smoothly. The overall stability of the design is important as well, with many sturdier models made of steel or aluminum. If space is a concern, look for models that fold easily. As long as it’s sturdy enough for your needs, a lighter hand truck is often a better choice.
