UpCart Redesigns The Hand Truck To Climb A Flight Of Stairs

upcart-1

Similar to any hand truck, you can use the UpCart to haul heavy cargo around the backyard. Unlike them, it comes with a novel design that lets you easily pull it up a flight of stairs, allowing you to use it to haul stuff like furniture, building supplies, and other heavy objects upstairs.

It does that by replacing the pair of wheels on traditional hand trucks with two sets of three-wheel hubs, with two wheels regularly in contact with the ground during use. When the hubs hit an obstacle (like a hump on the ground or a stair step), they immediately turn on the central axis, allowing it to continue rolling while being pulled up instead of needing to be lifted manually.

The UpCart combines the unique hub design with a wide wheel base for easily making its way up a flight of stairs, along with rolling over humps, curbs, and uneven terrain without requiring any manual lifting. With a carrying capacity of 150 pounds, it should make for a handy hauling tool around the house, whether you’re hauling a giant cooler full of beer to the neighbors’ backyard for a barbecue, moving furniture around, or bringing annoyingly heavy stuff to the bedrooms upstairs.

A height-adjustable handle allows you to tweak it to ideal pulling settings, with a collapsible design that folds in both the cargo plate in front and the wheel hubs in the back. Once unfolded, it automatically locks, so just load up the cargo and start pulling.

    Where has this been all of my life? Seriously! Every single time I have moved boxes, I have seen people with hand trucks and saw them struggle to make their way up and down. It oftentimes takes TWO people just to get heavy items up flights of stairs to your new apartment. Those extra wheels are a lifesaver. I don’t understand how this has no existed before now. Plus, the handle can be adjusted so it fits the needs of any person who is using it. Add to that the fact that you can quickly wrap it up and I’m more than sold. I do wish it was a little cheaper but I shouldn’t complain because I will use mine enough to pay it off in no time at all.
