NONE of the holes lined up, I ended up having to re-drill half the holes to get the bolts to go in. The "bolts" are a joke in themselves. They're just cheap sheet metal screws. You screw them into... sheet metal! There are NO threads anywhere on this entire cart! And since the sheet metal is so thin, stripping out the holes happens on a whim. The axle shaft for the rear wheels wasn't long enough, I couldn't get the cotter pins to go in unless I removed all the washers first. At least I was able to use the bushings...
Also worth noting, there's nowhere to hang anything. No hooks, no handles, nothing at all. Just moving it around is a challenge. This is about as barebones as it gets. I wanted something short to reduce the likelihood of the cart tipping over, but without any means of pushing/pulling it around, the reduced height ends up being a negative.
What's really sad is how this cart contrasts with the Hobart welder I bought it for. The Hobart Handler 140 is top notch quality in every respect. But this cart is an embarrassment by comparison. A terrible companion to the excellent welder. If I were Hobart, I'd be ashamed to have my name on this horrible product. There's absolutely nothing here to justify the price. I *might* have found this acceptable at $40... maybe. I had an a cart a couple years ago that I bought for $80, and it put this one to shame. Selling it was a huge mistake.
It just needs a HANDLE.
If you're trying to wrestle this thing around with a wire welder and gas bottle on it, it's NOT friendly. A HANDLE would fix that easily.
Guess I'll have to WELD one in place...
It would be nice if the cart had a handle on the front of it to move it around while welding, but hey, it is for a welder, so I will weld on my own handle : )
In the end you get what you pay for. The cart was cheap so I was not expecting much. If it gives me too much trouble then I will just make my own cart...haha
As far as to address some of the negative reviews with my findings...
I did not find this to be too thin of sheet metal, poor construction, or bad paint. A few years ago we bought a cart that is sold by the company that makes all the welders we own and it was about $250. That cart is very flimsy for the price and was never happy with it.
As far as screws and holes lining up, whoever wrote the bad reviews due to these problems either had no clue what they were doing when assembling or the company has made a drastic improvement in this product since then. We did have the first screw strip but it was due to us wanting to over tighten.
Yes it sure could use a handle and I would probably be willing to pay $10-20 for that but it was clear there was not one on it and buyers should have no reason to think there is one.
There are a lot of carts out there but I am fairly certain that, if you are looking for a simple cart that has a lower platform for the welder, there is no better option than this.

I wish all wheels pivoted, but the construction seems decent and sturdy.Published 8 days ago by NilartPax
Without a handle it is extremely difficult to move. The bottom shelf has so little clearance that it is nearly useless. It is a poorly designed, cheaply made product. Read morePublished 4 months ago by HJS

Solid materials. Way beefier than my Harbor Freight cart. Went together in less than 10 minutes with no issues. Could definitely use a handle, though.Published 7 months ago by Logan Heath
