Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vunch Sandusky 7' Utility Cart
I had my doubts when I picked it up, the cardboard container was all messed up. But, I took it, opened it, assembled it. The directions were terrible so I understand why the earlier buyer returned it even though I thought he should not have kept one nut!
Sandusky has no online directions. The directions and parts list was all on one sheet, no step-by-step. So, the direction for building this is: if it doesn't fit try it the other way! You will need to fill the tires with air, save yourself a trip and do that on the way home. (30 lbs)
I wanted a larger cart, on wheels, that could attach to a hitch. This is large. I do not like the play in the wheels, about 1/4", but that is to be expected. It is more than twice as expensive as the 3-4' cu carts! Hopefully, the weight it can carry, reported at 1400 lbs, and the load size will save many extra trips. Turning radius is OK but go slowly. I have included some pictures to help the next person assemble it. You will need a 1/2" ratchet and wrench, and an adjustable wrench.

This cart is not very sturdy, I would get something else if you want to haul something other than leaves.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Cheap Chinese Junk
"Rated" for 1200lbs. Each tire has a rating of 300-375lbs (I can not remember). The axle and wheel hubs are not anywhere close to that type of strain. We put 400lbs on it and could see it straining badly. We knew to be gingerly with it as a result. Used 3 times and wheel hub broke off at the core where it was possibly welded slightly. Cheap Chinese piece of junk. Unless you plan on moving very light stuff, I do not recommend this. Returned and refunded. Going to build my own.

Only buy this cart if you need the larger size. Instructions are poor. Cart is rated for 2000 Lbs. capacity and the tires are only rated at 375 Lbs. each, so the claim is false.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solomon94 good product
fairly rugged, multi use ,decent sized cart. We use it at the lake cabin for hauling everything from luggage and coolers , furniture, wood and other construction needs. It was easy to assemble, rolls and steers well and seems to handle necessary weight. It came with a dented side rail and tire that did not appear centered on the rim. However functions well. The real test will be moving a heavy wood burning stove.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sigman I owned this junker.
Rated at 2000lbs: took 10 - 80# sacks (8oolbs) off my Gorilla (1200#) cart, put them on my new cart. Went less than 60' and the front axle folded up. JUNK Have a older Sandusky that has held up great. This new one is a joke.

Using it as a light duty, hand towed luggage cart on an airfield. So far so good. Assembly not a problem as noted in other reviews. Only con is there is no brake, but that''s apparent in the specs and photos. It is more stable than expected too, so bulky loads are no problem. Same item at Lowe's was twice the price, so HD got our biz.

Overall the product does exactly what we want it to do. Our football coaches use it to move heavy tackling dummies (75-100lbs each) and other football equipment. They were thrilled to get the carts. And so far they have held up.
The assembly instructions were poor. I believe there was a flat out error in the instructions. I could not construct the cart using their instructions. I had to make an adjustment when it came to assembly of the front axle.
Also, the cart looks good, but the parts come off as cheap. Not all parts fit well together. To install the handle, you have to stick a pin through four holes. It couldn't be done, until I made one of the holes on the fork a little wider. To do that, I used a flathead screwdriver and scraped away a little of the metal.
Finally, there are many tiny parts. It would have helped if the instructions were a little larger.
If you can handle the assembly, the product will be fine. The attached picture is just of the cart out at practice.
