Great Equipment Hand Cart

I just bought this hand cart and I love it! it instantly converts from a 2 wheel cart into a 4 wheel platform. I can load all my lights, tripod, cable bag, production bag, etc on it and wheel it into the shoot location. no second (and third) trips to the truck for more equipment. I bungee everything on so it's really secure (I DO tend to still carry the camera in my other hand!)

I buy all my equipment from B&H and have been very happy, but the above company sells this cart for much less!

I'm looking for something with wheels large enough to accomodate going up/down steps. Can it do that? If so, I might be sold.

No, it only has 10" wheels, as listed in the specs on the website. Most handtrucks are this way. For going up and down stairs, some have rails installed on their back sides to allow them to slide up and down, like this one: http://www.handtrucks.com/hand-truck...view&key=TS001

In any case, I also highly recommend the handtruck in the OP (Wesco Spartan) and the store handtrucks.com.
