Good little cart for the price
on January 24, 2017
It's a good little garden cart, and I'm surprised by how often I find use for it. It maneuvers quite easily even in tight places; I really like the steering system. Also, the dumping works well and is convenient. It is easy to pull and the rubber tires are big enough go well even in rougher terrain such as a forest trail or an inch or two of snow.
You should be aware that it does take a little time to assemble and a power drill with adjustable torque and sockets are helpful as there are many nuts and bolts.
The bed is made of a trash can sort of plastic and is a little flimsy. All in all, it says it has a six hundred pound capacity, but I found it seemed to struggle in terms of both weight and volume with 3-4 bags of concrete totaling less than 250 lbs. I can't imagine what you would pull in this size cart that weighed 600 lbs. Also, the tires leak a little air, and will periodically need re pressurized. If you have an air compressor handy, which I do, I don't mind; otherwise it could be a pain. I've used inner tube slime, which seems to help a little.
Additionally, as it rolls along it is a little noisy. I've added felt to some areas where it rattles, which helps, but I wish I had thought of that when I originally put it together.
It does have a rubbery smell at first, but this goes away in a month or two. I've had mine for ~8 months. So far no corrosion issues. (shed kept)
