If you are looking for a sturdier version of the Magna Cart personal, this is it. Steel construction makes it more ideal for small but heavy duty tasks of up to 150 lbs capacity. Steel is known to be slightly heavier than aluminum but the strongest of metals.

Its strength is further enhanced by the 5″ solid wheels so you are sure to use it over a long time for your heavy duty tasks. Having to decide between the magna ideal steel cart and the magna personal cart will depend on the nature of your application for it.

For instance, the auto parts dealer who moves around heavy and bulky metallic weight most of the time would appreciate this track more than the personal cart. However, the simple home user or traveler with a bit lighter weight to move will go for the personal cart.
