4.0 out of 5 stars Nice trolley but I wouldn't trust it with 200kg!, 20 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TecTake Heavy Duty Hand Sack Truck Barrow Dolly 200kg black (Misc.)
This item appears to be well-made and reasonably sturdy, with steel wheels, chunky pneumatic tyres and proper wheel bearings. It arrived with the wheels unattached but they were easy to assemble using the split pins supplied and a pair of long-nosed pliers. I have a small gripe concerning the wheel bearings and axle --- there is a small amount of play between the axle and the inside diameter of the bearing casing, and also within the bearings themselves, making the wheels feel and sound rattly when the trolley is pushed unloaded or with only a light load.

Now to the performance: I've only used the trolley a couple of times and with a load of about 25kg when fetching heavy groceries from the local supermarket several hundred metres away. It was very smooth, quiet and easy to control, and although I would be happy to load it to about 50kg I would be very wary about exceeding this limit under any circumstances. As an ex-engineering designer I cannot see how it could possibly carry the 200kg claimed by the manufacturer --- the gauges of steel tubing & plate used are simply not adequate and would deform under the strain and/or the welds would fail.

Having said that, if you want a 50kg capacity trolley of this type then I would recommend it.
