A collapsible hand truck is simply a folding dolly that does the same job as a regular hand cart - yet it's easier to transport, store and use. There's a variety of makes and models - most are aluminum - strong but lightweight, while some models are fairly heavy duty, despite the fact that they're foldable.
Beyond the design, they're a useful accessory, up to carry considerable weight and definitely a labor saving piece of equipment. Many a professional owns at least one, as do many home owners, gardeners and D.I.Y. enthusiasts.
The five best folding hand trucks are featured below. Each one offers the flexibility and function you'd expect from a fold up model, as well as being great value for money.
