Had to have this one even though I already have 2 of them .But dad taught me "Right tool for the job" can make all the difference in the world! This is a great hand truck for moving pots and other things that are round shape. It is light weight and works even for my short stature. I haven't moved a pot yet, but it worked great for my full round muck bucket. I got it on sale plus used a 20% ff coupon that brought the price down to $31. Best $31 dollars I've spent IMO.

You can tell from this picture how it hugs the curve
I am going to put a hook or screw on the vertical support to hold the muck bucket handle. That way it will be much more secure without having to strap it down. I have straps to secure plant pots when the time comes though. Check it out at Harbor Freight if you've got big pots to move. I think it will work just great for that!

Nice! I've had mine for about 7 years, ( it's a real PRETTY oxidized pink now! ) and have gone through at least a couple tire sets, useful for 32, 44 or 55 gallon trash containers, pallets, fence panels or just about anything too bulky for my wheelbarrow, I'm moving cinder block with it now, double stacked 4 high! I've even moved 300+ lb rocks ( you'll need some ratchet ties that are also sold at the same place ).

When the time comes to replace the tires, might I suggest you go pneumatic? It's a whole lot easier to drive and can handle the terrain a lot better.

@josebaca I have pneumatic tires on my other straight-back dollies. I didn't need this one except for it's curved back to hold round pots.
