A hand truck makes so many jobs easier, but if you just don’t have the space, it’s hard to justify owning one.  Welcom caters to the space-poor with their Magna Cart — this collapsible 150lb-capacity hand truck folds up to just 25″ tall by 15″ wide by 2″ thick.

The collapsed 7lb Magna Cart MCX opens with the touch of a button.  After it unfolds, you can extend the telescoping handle up to 39″.  Load ‘er up and you’re off and rolling over all sorts of terrain with the 5″ rubber wheels.

Welcom manufactures the Magna Cart with an aluminum frame and baseplate to make it light and strong.  They use ultra-durable nylon for all the plastic pieces under high stress and polypropylene for the rest.

You’ll pay anywhere from $25 to $40 for the Magna Cart MCX.

    I randomly just got one of these (though I’m not sure it’s that exact model — mine weighs about 12lbs).

    It’s better than you’d probably expect but obviously not as durable as a welded cart.

    Still, it does fold perfectly flat and unfolds at the push of a button (pushing down the base plate operates gears that swing out the wheels; the weight of whatever you’re moving helps hold them out).

    My father has had one of these for years………..

    he uses it for his boat. he takes all the stuff donw from the car to the marina in it and hen just folds it up and sotres it until he needs it at the end of the trip.

    They are awsome and very strudy. We infact had forgotten the lift for the outboard engine on the dingy one day and used this to take it up the car. (we had to paint the outboard it looked baaaddddd) So 100lbs no biggy….

    I bought one of these things on a whim, and I gotta say, it’s surprisingly sturdy, and handy enough that I now keep it in the car 24/7.

    Shortly after I got it, my mother-in-law gave us a large stone birdbath, the kind you really should have two strong guys carrying. Neither of us thought it would take the weight, but it was getting dark and no one else was available, so we struggled to drag the birdbath onto the cart, and lo and behold, it worked great! Now she wants one too!

    I use one of these for work. They seem kinda flimsy but will carry quite a load. I also strap a few bungie straps around it to help tie down loads.
