    Looking for a good hand truck recommendation. Standard type with 2 wheels and pneumatic tires. Ours has lost both bearings and the tires are always going flat. We use it for yanking small home standby generators around on steep ground and such.

    If you really know what you want, build one or have it built for you. 3/4" axle is the only way to go. I have destroyed quite a few cheapies with 5/8" axles moving oil drums.

    One of the guys that works for me has a aluminum one that's built super heavy, like what the pepsi delivery guys have for taking cases into the stores. Look for one of those.
