Best Value for the Money Anywhere!

I was a bit reluctant at first after reading some of the previous reviews but I couldn't pass on the price. Over the past two weeks, I compared all of the 800# - 1200# carts and was surprised that the quality of these carts was practically identical, only priced higher and higher depending on the retailer. This cart has worked fantastic for its purpose. I've had no problems with the sides or noisy wheels. I can only assume that a noisy wheel is the result of an extremely heavy load as the wheels butt against a metal spacer on one end and secured by a washer and cotter pin on the outside. I've loaded my cart a few feet above the walls with heavy sod and with cut logs and had no noise or problems with the sidewalls. I would recommend that you actually inflate the tires to the recommended pressure. When they come out of the box, they are probably at half pressure. This might be another reason why some had problems with load balance or noise at the wheel. Again, don't let the price fool you. This is a quality product comparable to those at agricultural and other retail stores that cost $90-$150. This is an excellent product, especially at the regular price. Great Cart!

It goes without saying this is MADE IN CHINA! It was missing cotter pins--had to make a trip into town for those because the website wouldn't allow me to enter the needed information. The instructions are hard to follow due to not being able to make out details in the photos. Download the PDF manual when you order; it has pictures and can be enlarged. The latches do not meet up even closely with the sides, and are a joke of "craftsmanship." I will have to figure out a way to make latches of some sort, but my plan for this was to use it as a flatbed or three-sided. WEIGHT RATING 800 POUNDS? HA HA. There is a sticker right on the frame of this that says not to exceed 400 lbs, and the tires say not to exceed 300 lbs. I wouldn't put much more than 200 on it, but I haven't even hauled anything on it yet. The cherry on top was one tire was flat, but that's no big deal, just an indication of the trouble ahead. I have 2-3 hours in this already, and I still have to figure out the latches for the sides. The good: Sears shipped it fast, getting it on the second business day. And the hardware is packaged on a card labeled with the corresponding steps in the instructions. This is junk, but I doubt you can buy an American made version of this, which is sad. All the other versions of this on the market are probably made in China too. I guess just buy the cheapest one or look at the reviews.

Tough, Durable and Functional


This cast was easy to assemble and clearly will hold a good amount of weight. There is a good amount of flexibility in function due to the ability to alter the sides. The wheels are very rugged and it steers very nicely. Looking forward to giving this cart a good life :-)

Affordable, medium duty wagon


The wagon is easy to maneuver, even for my 12-year-old with a heavy load. It's much safer to use than the wheelbarrow. It's a good size. I bought it to transfer River rock from a delivery pile, across my large yard. I had expected the wagon to be a little heavier duty but the metal bends (dips it sags) when loaded with rock.
The wagon will be very useful to have around the yard, it may be best for medium to light duty work and not heavy duty.

Comes in handy!


Instructions to put it together were a bit confusing at first but it's a really nice cart to have.
