This cart is lightweight and easy to handle. Unlike a wheetbarrow, it has a cross bar to hold, not two handles, and it has two wheets in front not one; therefore, it doesn't tip over like a wheetbarrow can. The tires are hard plastic and can't go flat, either. It's very easy to load and unload. It has slots to hold tools so you don't put them down and forget where you put them. This meets my needs very well.
The Flowtron lasted less than a year. We used it for carrying yard clippings, tree branches, bags of mulch, sand and bricks. I was concerned that the plastic wheels would crack under the heavier loads but ultimately the bottom of the tub split open. It may have been a flaw in the plastic material that caused it to fail or just one load too many, exposure to UV rays, or too brittle a material. Sears did replace the cart although I would have traded up if the store had anything better in stock.
That being said, the cart was useful as long as it lasted. To make its replacement last longer, I will cut a piece of 1/4 inch plywood to fit the bottom of the tub to reduce the likelihood of splitting. There are a few design compromises that limit the carts utility. The first is that wheel wells intrude into the bottom front of the tub, reducing volume and making it more difficult to load twigs and the like. Mounting the wheels on the outside of the tub would eliminate the wheel well bulges and increase useable capacity. It would also have helped to reduce the height of the rear legs so that they are less likely to drag when the cart is pushed or pulled uphill. I may use a saw to make that modification. Lastly, a molded-in grid under the bottom of the tub would add rigidity.
I recommend this cart for light use although for about the same or lesser price I would probably select one of the Tricam dump carts.
Love this cart. My wife uses it all the time.
