I use this to move 25 pounds of safety cones from the front of my kids elementary school to the street. I have to go over a high door threshold, 6 steps, walk 100 feet and then go down a curb. This works perfectly for that. This is definitely a lightweight to medium duty use dolly. I definitely wouldn't try to move a refrigerator with this, but for something under, say 100 lbs., it works really well.
