Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zarich Can almost handle a falling barn
I bought one of these early this year. I have loaded it with dirt, bags of sand, bags of gravel, wood. It works amazingly well. Then I began to tear apart my old barn and used it to haul debris. Unfortunately the old barn fell with it still inside and crushed the cart. I pulled the cart from the wreckage, found the tub had only one small crack, the handle neck had bent, the frame bent and cracked on either side of where the handle connects. I did my best to bend it back in shape and while it won't hold 1200lbs anymore (at least I am not willing to try) it will still hold several hundred pound and still works really well. This is one tough cart.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CartShopper Well constructed and good value
Was looking for cart that could be pulled by mower or by hand and this one was only $30 more than 2-wheel mower-only carts. Well constructed with power coated frame parts and assembly simple and aided by hardware which was shrink wrapped in groups corresponding to the numbered assembly steps.
The plastic tub has spaces for inserting a railing. I made the one shown in the attached photo out of seven 8' lengths of 1x2 lumber which is 12" high.

While the tires are truly hideous smelling until they spend time outside (who cares, the darn thing works so well), this cart makes a wheelbarrow obsolete.
We moved 19 yards of sandy loam, and 6 yards of large river rock, to build a rock garden in the corner of our yard. The only way to get the materials into the backyard was with a cart (or wheelbarrow of some kind) that had to travel across a large expanse of nice lawn. I knew a wheelbarrow would create a lot of destruction, and I'm getting too old to be lifting that many wheelbarrow loads (plus the inevitable uncontrollable tip-overs associated with wheelbarrows). We did some research, and decided to buy one of these....and it was an excellent decision.
The minimal assembly is very easy (especially with a helper to hold the bolts in place), and the way the cart functions to dump a load is well engineered, with the wheels cleverly configured so the cart 'kneels' when the load bucket is raised. You can move a very heavy load easily because it's got four large wheels, and you pull it. The four large wheels meant that all those many loads of heavy material did minimal damage to the lawn (a wheelbarrow would have created a mess).
I'd buy another one of these things in a second, and will probably get the smaller version for my wife for her daily gardening use. The old wheelbarrow is being consigned to become an ornamental 'flowerpot'.

We chose this instead of a wheel barrow which tends to tip over when hauling landscaping material. We have hauled sand, gravel, soil, and most recently, large flag stone. Assembly was fairly straight forward. The tires are large and the cart has a nice tight turning radius. No problems with anything we've hauled in it. No tipping over either. Fantastic!

I bought this to replace my last gorilla cart that lasted me close to ten years. I am pleased to see that this newer model has been beefed up a bit. Although the bed is a tad narrower, I believe the sides are a bit taller. I just love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYCaliforniHeights Great cart ... but 2nd step in build, wrong illustration.
The cart is really solid when built. Using heavy gauge tubing struts really beefs up the overall carrying capacity of this cart. Outstanding way the bolts, nuts and washers were arranged: each step the bolts, washers and nuts were in separate sealed clear compartments, marked step one, step two and so on. There was no way anyone could mix up the correct hardware for each step of the assembly process. There was one flaw in the directions: on step 2 the break-out drawing clearly shows the front strut with the bolt going through strut and the strut and bolt going into the cross-member. When assembling I was wondering why they wanted me to do this, but I followed the detailed drawing. BAD idea!!!! Later on, another break-out drawing showed the correct orientation: bolt, cross-member hole, strut and then washer and nut. I had to cut one of the bolts off, the threads striped while removing it. Luckily I have a good supply of automotive M6 nuts, washers and bolts.
Tomorrow I will make a plywood liner to the cart so I don't knock a hole in it while tossing in jack-hammered cement blocks. Also, on page 10 is an illustration to add Stake Out Sides: actual hole sizes for the stakes is 3/4" (1.9cm) X 2.0" (5.08cm). While making the bottom liner maybe build side rails?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Flamingo Just what was needed
The assembly was easy and well described in pamphlet. Convertible handle is a simple and handy feature.
