John Deere’s 18 cu. ft. steel utility cart is as durable and hard-working as they come. With a load capacity of 1,650 lbs., there aren’t many loads this cart can’t handle. The bracket-free tailgate design eliminates side channels that can obstruct materials when unloading. Recessed flat bold heads won’t disrupt shoveling material from the bed. And the steep 45-degree tailgate angle and quick release dumping action allow for easy and complete emptying.

  • 1,650 lb. load capacity, 18 cu. ft.
  • 1-piece solid undercarriage and contoured bed corners for excellent performance
  • Universal hitch attaches to most riding lawn mowers and lawn tractors
  • 45 degree dump angle, steel release handle
  • Includes a hitch pin
  • 1 year warranty

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Requires total assembly It should indicate that the cart is completely disassembled when you buy it. The instructions are obscure at best, the different parts are not clearly identified, the position of the parts in the pictures is not clear; in my case, some of the pictures were of a different model. I spent a few hours trying to put it together, and finally gave up. I think I just wasted over $500. Perhaps a licensed mechanic could put it together properly, I certainly can't, and I seriously doubt that the average person could assemble it. I expected to get an assembled unit when I bought it, not a hundred separate pieces. June 29, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Heavy Duty Product The John Deere tow cart is a quality piece of equipment; single piece deep bed with no seams or bolt heads, hinged tailgate that swings open or removes easily, study release mechanism that prevent cart from accidently dumping, 1 inch solid axle, and wide turf tires. The instruction manual is pathetic. The pictures lack clarity and orientation as they are poor quality close-ups. This prevents knowing how the part is attached in relation to the cart. There are references to bolts with round heads that do not exist. Overall, the parts do align and fit well but the manual does detract from the higher overall quality that you should expect from a JD product. The tow bar channel does not have holes predrilled for attaching a ball coupler. This feature would have been a low cost plus. If you have a small tractor with a 3 pt. hitch, you will need a swinging drawbar to keep the tow arm back far enough to allow for sharp turns. I have a carry all with receiver. I opted to drill the holes to allow for a ball carrier. I tried the standard pin attachment on the tow bar and besides the turning/clearance problem, the tow bar bangs up and down on the tractor’s drawbar. The cart is made of steel and painted with a high grade finish. I am hauling a lot of rock and it handles the heavy loads well. However, steel will dent easily so I am using thick poly bins to protect the finish. Ironic, but over time, I’ll remove the bids as the gleam in my eyes dim. October 2, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Useful My daughter could easily assemble it and hang it on to our lawnmower. She carter dirt with it and I remove all the leaves from the yard. Was what I expected. I looks sturdy and well made. February 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Almost perfect We are very pleased with this utility cart. It lives up to the quality of a John Deere product. Our only complaint was in the assembly. The instructions did not have clear illustrations and we used a lot of time trying to figure out where things went. We also had to replace three bolts that came with the product that would not tighten, But once it was assembled, we are very pleased with the heavy-duty sturdiness. It can carry a load of wood behind our compact tractor, yet it is easy to move around our shed by hand. November 13, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product I had a 15 cu. one, sold it to the neighbor for $200, after a little accident with it. I told him I was going to buy another one. Had another one coming from Home Depot with-in 24 hours. I really can't do without a heavy duty lawn trailer. Yes, I have more trailers. I need a big lawn trailer that the wheels won't fall off and I can abuse. This one fits the bill. My first one I did not have to put it together, bought it from dealer. This one was easy for my wife to put together, I'm a little disabled. Vern November 20, 2012
