One other note, there is a BBQ grill cover sold on Amazon for $9 that fits this like a glove. I should help keep the rain off of it and keep the steel parts from rusting sooner. "Extra Large 48" Green Polyethylene BBQ Grill Cover" just search it.
This is a well-made cart. I agree with many of the other reviews here so I thought I would write some info about the assembly.
One note about using it - while the turning radius is better than my previous rust-bucket of a cart, if you're towing with an ATV, tractor or mower, you'll need to watch during turns to make sure you don't bend things up.
Important note about towing: go slow. When loaded, and especially when empty, the cart will "hunt" back and forth and will eventually overturn. Staying below about 8 mph minimizes this behavior. If you need to tow faster, a trailer (two wheels) would be better. I plan to replace the flimsy plastic wheel spacers with metal washers, which should help the play in the front wheels. This is not a deal-breaker for me - I want the ability to also move the cart by hand, so I accept the lesser towing ability.
Putting it together is an adventure, but only because there are parts that are awkward to handle as things go together. I was impressed with the precision of the parts, everything fits together well during assembly.
Tips for assembly
If you have a large work table, it would be ideal, otherwise knee pads are useful for floor assembly.
A 13mm socket wrench and 13mm closed end wrench are handy to have.
If you have a cordless drill driver that can drive the 13mm socket, that will help greatly - as well as a drive extension. If your drill has a torque setting, use the lowest setting and make your final tightening by hand with a socket wrench. A 19mm socket helps with the axle nuts.
Assembly can be done by one person, two will make things a lot easier.
Assembly can be tricky with the large loose parts. Even though the instructions say to only hand tighten bolts until a certain point, it helps to nearly tighten at least one bolt to help make assembly manageable - especially in step 1.
Steps 3, 4 & 5 are particularly annoying. Forget Step 3 - you can put the struts on during step 5. Step 4 just explains the orientation and you can safely ignore it if you follow step 5 carefully. Before you start this step - note that the M11 (big) flat washer goes on the bolt before it is placed in the tub. The easiest way to accomplish step 5 is to make sure the rear frame is oriented properly (the frame actually has a stamped "REAR" in it, which should be towards the slanted end of the cart tub), and start with the forward center bolt to hold the frame to the tub - tighten, but not all the way. Then attach the rear axle assembly to the tub and tray with the rear center bolt. Add the struts as shown and bolt them to the tub and frame, following up with the rest of the bolts.
First, the tools. It helps if you have metric sockets and a wrench, though you can substitute imperial sockets.
Second, you will need spanners as well as sockets. These are required for a tight fit.
Third, you will need to bore out some of the holes.
Fourth, and most important: plan a trip to the store for some spare parts. During the assembly a nut and a carriage bolt were not tapped correctly and took significant effort to disassemble.
Fifth, some components were faulty. The front strut, item G, was not bent correctly. I couldn’t get both G struts to fit with the 13 mm wrenches. Instead, I built one as shown in the instructions, anchored the second strut with a 13 mm bolt and nut and went to the hardware store for a ¼-inch replacement: ¼-in. bolt, washer and lock nut (AKA stop nut) and 0.375-in. washer to mate up to the ¼-in. washer for support. The 1/4"-in. washer allowed me to attach the G strut and even bend it into place at the yoke (H part).
Sixth, the C components are a little tricky. The drawing was deceptive: the orientation is opposite of as shown in the drawings. The flat side should face towards the rear axial so that the bolt hole above lines up correctly.
Word to the wise, don’t tighten anything down until they tell you to in the instructions: every nut is a lock nut in project. If you get it wrong you will have to apply great force to disassemble. My approach is to put everything together in my hands to see how it fits, then test the tools to make sure I have the right sockets and such, then inspect the bolts and then finally do the assembly.
Assembly consists of three challenging sections: 1) assembly of the front section of the chassis; 2) assembly of the rear section of the chassis; and 3) attachment of the bucket (called the tray) to the rear section of the chassis. The third section is the most challenging.
This third section in the assembly requires two people. Worst still, you will want to duct-tape the rear axial assembly (E) to the rear frame (D) during the assembly of the rear section; the instructions seem overly concerned that you will misalign the rear frame and put it together backwards when its already stamped “Front” and “Back.” This third section, attachment of the bucket with 6-13 mm carriage bolts, requires that the bolts go through the tray to the rear frame. I had some hold the bucket up, put in the center bolt and I quickly screwed it down with a socket wrench while they held the carriage bolt in place with a screwdriver: do the middle front one first to hold the rear chassis to the bucket (tray). Then do the other two. During this part of the operation, one of the nuts failed; another trip to the hardware store provided sufficient spares, though I could only get hex head bolts. I chose 5/16-in. hex heads 1-1/2-in. long to substitute because the ones provided were a little shorter than I liked. After getting the first bolt in it was possible to do the work myself, alone.
After this step, the assembly was all downhill.
The cart is a little heavy for my mother, a 78-year old but it will carry the weight. Altogether, I spent 5-hours to assemble the cart.

Update: 30 months of service.
The tires went flat after storage in a shed for several months. That's okay; everyone should have a reliable air pump for bike tires and such.
The only issue with the cart is corrosion. I don't know if it's the fasteners (bolts, nuts, washers) that I bought or the ones that came with the kit; I modified the design because some of the bolts were too short or not the right diameter --- see review above. What I should have done was greased the airplane (flat) bolt heads in the bottom of the bucket. These heads are severely corroded. I will use a wire brush to clean it then I'll grease it next year but once the corrosion starts it never goes away.
