An Inexpensive Backsaver

 If you occasionally need to move boxes of radio gear or office stuff, as I must for every HamCram, here’s an excellent way to spend $19.99. And save your back.

I am talking about the Magnacart, which Costco sells from time-to-time. This is a small folding handcart with a claimed capacity of 150 lbs.

I’ve never tested mine that hard, but a HamCram requires three or four heavy boxes and the Magnacart allows me to move them all in a single trip.

If you need to haul an emergency radio box, the Magnacart could probably do the job.

Likewise your hollow-state old “boat anchor” Collins or Hallicrafters rig.

I keep the Magnacart in the back of my car, so I always have it. Odd go-kit item, perhaps, but a useful one.
