Best cart I've had to date is a COSCO 12-301 ABL that I got from Lowes. 
Combined with ratchet straps and a set of tailgate ramps I've moved
everything from 5U servers to large Cisco 7609S' and ASR9010's with it. 
The selling feature for this aside from the cart/hand truck conversion
ability and 1000lb capacity was the fact that it has pneumatic tires which
helps keep the ride a little more smooth when you're rolling equipment out
to a vehicle.
