After i purchased it online, i was wondering if it would not be too big or heavy. I was immediately reassured when the box arrived: this was the light weight small cart that I was hoping for. A friend who works in construction assembled it for me, it only took him 20 minutes and he barely looked at the instructions sheet as he found it so easy to assemble and all the parts were well identified. I just received it and I am so happy with it: safe, small, light, extremely well built and great quality. One of my favorite features are the 2 pneumatic tires which make it totally stable and so easy to maneuver even though my lawn is uneven with several holes and stepping stones. No squeaking, no wobbling and it is so light and totally silent. Lifting a 40lbs bag of top soil to load it was too difficult and dangerous with my previous wheelbarrow which was tipping over unless the load was perfectly balanced. No such problem with this Gorilla cart: it is only 13" high so it makes lifting and loading 2 bags of 40 lbs of top soil or bird seed easy and no tipping over. I found it easy to dump these bags where needed as the cart is so light. I only used it for 120 lbs (3 bags of 40lbs each) but I am not surprised that the specifications show a 300lbs weight capacity. It is ideal for light hard work and senior citizens who are looking for a good quality, safe and easy to maneuver cart.
