    Wesco Superlite reviews

    Superlite Folding Handtruck is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A tough handtruck, folds flat I am a musician and haul equipment a lot. I had been using a decent luggage handtruck which would become unstable and tip on uneven ground. This Wesco is very stable with excellent, huge wheels for its size. The shelf is all metal. It folds flat for easy storage. This hand truck is NOT practical as a luggage cart for traveling as it is somewhat heavy and large even when folded. The included bungee cord is good enough - there are well-thought out slots to secure it - but some may want to add aftermarket bungees. I believe it is rated at 175 lb. capacity which is probably wishful thinking. 100 lb. is more practical. All in all a solid product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from weight distribution is key... I think this is OK but found it difficult to maneuver it with one large bag weighing about 50lbs... The key to the 175lb claim is even weight distribution and I would really like to see someone move this with anything over 100lbs. While I am sure it will HOLD 175lb, I don't think it would be maneuverable as with the 50lb low production bag (a Cinebags CB01 Production Bag) only placed on the bottom plate; it is difficult to keep steady...the wheels should be larger to help leverage and balance the weight. I would return it but there is no better viable solution I can find so making it work by placing the bag lengthwise vertically...but have to remove contents of the side pocket as the weight then rests on it vs. the bag bottom (less than optimal obviously)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes life in a city easier My uses for this hand truck vary from transporting heavy Pelican cases between cars and buildings to pulling down dirt paths to photoshoots that are on location but in confining areas. It's not a bulletproof indestructible piece of equipment, but it is strong for it's size and weight. THe fact that it folds down to nearly a bit more than 2 inches is great for when storage is limited... it easily fits under a couch or behind a door I'd advise getting a tie down strap instead of using the bungee cord that comes with it. With a bunch of cases stacked and tied down, the handruck isn't the most balanced either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product What is great about the Superlite: carries all my photo gear, balance it right and pulls easily, however the best is going from a grass parking lot to an event like an air show and putting the large 7 wheels to work-effortless (others with their small wheels getting stuck in the dirt!!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wesco Superlite Folding Handtruck Not sure if folks write second reviews of a product, but this is more of a follow-up. I was upset that I had lost or misplaced the first Superlight, which I had owned and depended on for over 20 years. I immediately bought a new one only to find I had left the old one at another business location. I guess they realized it was mine and notified me after a bit of time. The business owner admitted that even though he knew this, it was hard to part with it since he tried it out and loved it. I appreciated his honesty, told him where to buy one, and was glad to get it back.., so now I have two. I might just give it to someone else who really needs it..., OR NOT! What a great, and indispensable piece of gear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from DOES THE JOB I WAS ON A SHOPPING SPREE AND DECIDED TO GET SOMETHING TO CARRY ALL THE GOODIES I BOUGHT I SAW THIS HAND TRUCK AND FROM JUST LOOKING AT IT FOLDED UP IT DIDN'T IMPRESS ME BUT AS I PICKED IT UP AND OPENED IT, IT FELT LIKE A QUALITY MADE PRODUCT. IN USING IT MAKES MY SETTING UP A LOT QUICKER AND THE WHEELS EVEN ROLLED OVER THE SADDLE OF THE DOOR WAY WITH OUT HAVING TO TURN AROUND OR APPLYING EXTRA FORCE. I CAN'T SAY IF HOLDS THE 175lbs IT CLAIMS BUT I CAN LOAD IT UP PRETTY GOOD WITH MY EQUIPMENT. THE BEST PART IS I CAN FOLD IT UP AND TUCK IT AWAY IN A SMALL AREA (REAL SMALL). SURE THERE ARE SOME CHEAPER HAND TRUCKS OUT THERE, BUT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR NOWADAYS. TIME WILL TELL IF IT HOLDS UP! HAVE TO GET BACK TO YOU ON THAT!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I give it a ten star rating There is nothing bad or even marginal about this item. It is everything and more that the manufacturer says it is. It is so simple, so well engineered, so lite weight. I just cannot say enough about it. It's so goo that I wrote WESCO before I used it! And if you do get one just watch the reaction you get when people see haw easily it is deployed and collapsed. It draws attention. In conclusion it is one of the best purchases I've ever made and I will recommend it without compunction to anyone in the market for a lite weight truck.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superlite Folding Handtruck I am an Electrician, presently working on a large college campus, with limited parking. I use this handtruck to haul tools and material to the many different work areas. This cart is a must have! Saves on the back and the number of trips required. I made a simple bracket for the back to hold my battery drill plus it adds balance to the load. the large wheels are great for stairs and uneven walkways. Wish the deck and wheels had a better locking mecanisim, without a load on the deckplate it will foldup easily. All-in-all a great cart.
