Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Ridgerunner Seems to be a decent little cart
I got this for the sole purpose of constructing a receiver hitch-mounted carrier that I could also use to tote items around the farm, campground, beach, etc. and I think it will work just fine for that purpose. the assembly instructions weren't the best but it's not like I was assembling the space shuttle or something. Most of the bolts and nuts look to be good Grade 8 hardware but I put on additional lock washers and locktite to keep things from coming apart. As noted by others the plastic tray is junk, but that isn't a big deal. It seems to be a decent enough little cart but I am doubtful that it would hold 700 pounds. I foresee this thing getting a lot of use because it is very handy to have around.

We purchased this yard cart to take our large dog on wagon rides after she had knee surgery. I wasn't able to find a cart this size for a similar price anywhere - I checked online and in-store at several places. Assembly was straight-forward and took less than an hour. The size is ideal - larger than a kid's wagon but, not a huge utility cart so it is a little easier to maneuver. It works very well on paved and unpaved surfaces. Our only complaint is the VOCs from the handle and liner are insane and require numerous hand washings to get the smell out of your hands. We allowed it to off gas for several days before use hoping it would help but, it just seems to be part of the deal. Still, for the price and functionality this is a great cart.

Excellent cart. Holds tons of weight. However, even empty it feels like trying to drag about 100 lbs. Not sure how that could be fixed (larger wheels? wider wheel base?) but with a few sacks of poultry feed it takes quite a bit of effort to get this moving.
Regardless, worth the purchase. Beats out any of the cheap plastic carts by a long shot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Homepro1 A pretty good yard wagon
The wagon was a bit of a challenge to assemble. Took some extra time to sort out the instructions. Mechanical ability is a plus! Once assembled it`s a good yard workhorse. Pneumatic tires are a definite plus. Makes it very easy to hand tow over a hilly yard and rougher areas.

This is a fairly heavy-duty garden cart. Assembly took about 45 minutes and was straight-forward. The plastic insert on the bed of the cart is light-duty and will not last very long. A better solution would have been to include a rubber formed insert. Our plastic insert arrived cracked in a few places which didn't matter to us as it was obvious from the beginning that it wasn't going to last very long anyway. When the insert is removed you have a nice mesh base to carry things in - whether wet or dry.
Initially we were very disappointed when the box arrived as it was in very bad shape - almost like UPS was tossing it around - corners crunched, gouges in the cardboard, etc. But, there was nothing wrong with the parts inside.
Once assembled it's a spiffy looking garden cart - the colors go very well with John Deere equipment. I live in Southern California and only have a 1/4-acre lot so I don't even own a garden tractor - nor a lawn mower for that matter. This cart will be used to help with little garden planting, trimming, removal and maintenance projects around our property. Because of the heavy duty, air-filled wheels the cart rolls easily over either paved or unpaved surfaces. The cart weighs a little over 50-lbs so it takes a little umph to move it around.
All-in-all it is a nice, heavy-duty cart that has flexibility with the removable sideboards to do most any light-duty jobs around your yard or garden. The cart turns VERY sharply and remains stable. The handle is ergonomic and nicely designed.
It was worth the extra money to get a well-made cart compared to the other plastic ones out there. SO glad we didn't settle for a molded cart or a wheel-barrow. It's so nice - it has earned a spot in our garage !! (I wouldn't recommend leaving it outdoors or it's liable to rust because of the steel construction.)
