The Magna Cart personal hand truck is a great little item for use in an emergency. Whether you need something to carry several cases of MRE's, several ammo boxes or miscellaneous assorted gear items that aren't easily carried by hand, this is a very useful item. It has a capacity of 150 pounds. This is way more more than the average person can carry without some form of assistance. It has a very rugged design and is also extremely lightweight. It folds flat and this helps to make storage very easy when space may be at a premium. It extends to over 39 inches and is easy to maneuver and handle. Mine has done an excellent job for me whenever it has been needed. It is also a multi-use item in that it can be extremely handy around the house for non-emergency purposes.
