    Sorry if this has been posted in the past, but maybe there are new recommendations. Im looking to buy a dolly/hand truck on amazon that would be good for moving a Pin here and there which would include going up and down stairs. Anyone buy anything over the last few years they would recommend? I was looking at this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0026WG51S/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1 but I didnt know if the lip on the bottom would be enough for a pin. Last thing I want is for the thing to fall off the hand truck and fly down the stairs.

    Thanks for any recommendations.

    I've used one of these since the early 1980s, with a big wheel attachment. Remove for stairs. Nice to just push while moving on a flact surface.

    Keep an eye on Craigslist. They pop up often for $100 or less.

    I would echo lloyds recommendation. I work for a plumbing and hvac company and use these for hauling water heaters, furnaces, and boilers in and out of houses. Whenever I bring a pin home I grab one from work to haul down to my basement. Works great both up and down the stairs.

    thanks guys, that looks real nice. So the small lip isnt really a problem I guess.

    I am trying to use amazon as I just got a bunch of gift cards there! heh

    The one in your link is steel. It will be heavier than an aluminum one.

    That is just like the one I have used many times. Works great with two people.

    The one I linked or the one LTG recommended?

    I bought that exact appliance dolly a year ago. Love it. It's perfect for moving pins and the short lip is not a problem as you strap the pin into the dolly. I've moved 5 up and down stairs a few times now with it and no issues

    I bought that one ~18 months ago and it’s great for $200. The “stair gliders” (rubber over ball bearings) work well, retractable locking straps, and 4 wheels are nice too.

    Yours. LTG's recommendation looks better. It will be lighter. I used my friends that is steel.

    according to the product specs both weigh the same. Amazon 37.7 pounds, yeats 37.5 lbs.

    With a pin that .2 pounds is nothing. Have had great luck with the amazon one but I'm sure both are great

    Worth checking. Thank you for that.

    Through the years I've seen some of the steel ones that were a heck of a lot heavier than 37 pounds. That is why I mentioned it.
