1- Use a medium (minimum) thread locker on the nuts and bolts. Otherwise, you will have a very flimsy cart. These are very cheap fasteners and will not tighten and stay tight without thread lock. I can assure you of this--take my word for it. I have learned the hard way on a service cart that I bought. The wheels came loose constantly and it was very shaky. once I used locktite -those problems went away. Its much easier to do it while assembling than to go back and redo.
2- The big washers go on the wheels just before the cotter pins (to hold them in place). Obviously with no instructions- or photo to show you- but this is where they go. If you fail to put the washer on- the wheel will be pressing directly on the cotter pin and it will probably (eventually) break it.
3- The brackets for the cord- they are supposed to be opposing each other to wrap the cord or hoses around. They show one of them on one of the side posts---I suppose to hold the mig gun/torch- who knows.
4- The chains for the tank- --they go in the little key holes in the back plate- and they fall out easily.Read more ›
The only problem I ran into was that my welder is too wide for the top shelf.
I have a new Miller 140 Mig and the footprint is too wide for top tray.
I tried flipping top tray over but the Mig slides off of it.
This is no fault of the cart or Amazon. It just so happens that my Mig is wider than others and I should have checked first.
Make sure you check the measurements first, though I'm sure this cart is fine for most basic welders.
This cart does and will make an awesome tool cart. I will mount a power strip to it and it can be a mobile powr tool station and tool cart.
+ Strong and can support the welder plus a bunch of tools and even tanks
+ Easy to assemble
+ Nice features like the included chains and brackets to hold the hoses and plug wire
- Lack of any real instructions, but you can figure it out from the picture here
- sometimes hard to maneuver but that is due to the fixed rear wheel
Overall this is a very nice cart at an affordable price. Highly recommended!
Thanks for reading my review.
First, the packaging. The manufacturers packaging sucked. There was so much product shifting inside the carton that the bag of hardware looked like it had been eaten by moths. When I picked it up nuts and washers spilled EVERYWHERE.
Next, the "instructions". I've added quotes because the paper showed an assembled unit with a few arrows pointing to various parts and no explanation of orientation whatsoever. No "up" or "front" arrows. NADA. I had to flip things over and around to finally get it right.
On to quality, or lack of. The low grade metal used is so lacking in rigidity that even parts with sharp creases easily bend. The coating (I don't dare call it "paint") has been applied directly over rust as bubbling is prevalent on all the shelves and base. The hardware is of less than Dollar Store quality and easily strips on tightening. I'm so concerned about the structural rigidity as assembled that I'm going to weld the pieces together to supplement the cap screws.
I'm still getting out of it cheaper (dollar-wise) than had I constructed one myself, but with 1/100 of the quality. I think I will use it to finish up my current projects and then make myself a decent one and lawn sale this one. Do yourself a favor....since you've got (or are getting) the welder, make your own.

The wheels that come with this product do not match the axle size (too big). Then after I shimmed with washers I still could not get the cart to roll without issue.Published on January 7, 2014 by chris lewis
Right out the box I could tell it would be flimsy. It is thin sheet metal that just gets the job done. Read morePublished on January 5, 2012 by Hippyengineer
