The shipping weight on this beauty is 38 lbs - and the flimsy box weights almost nothing. The weight itself would likely contribute to the stability of the wagon. The handle swivels up or down and the weld seems strong. I stood in the wagon with no problem (I weigh much more than the 150 lb weight capacity.
The box interior dimensions are approximately 31.75" long x17" wide x 11" deep. The canvas bottom includes panels of Masonite - so it is also strong. The sides and bottom are of heavy nylon-canvas looking material. There are a few pockets.
Possible Problems: There are a few sharp edges, like the clip holding the handle - you may need to tape them over. Also some pivot points are just riveted together.
It comes fully assembled. There were no instructions, but it folds all by itself if you tip it up onto the 'back' end of the wagon. Once folded, there is a canvas handle to carry the wagon. Sweet!
Bottom line, this is heavy wagon of sturdy metal construction. It is little crudely made but should serve well for transporting heavy items, then fold easily for transport or storage. It should fit my needs.
Oh, and you'll need to leave it out in the sun a few days. It stinks right out of the box.
In theory this cart seems to be a great idea-lightweight, folds and very portable. However when pulling it, the front wheels "wobble" independent of each other on both cement and on the grass making it very difficult to pull. I was VERY lucky to have a local manager that even after 90 days, issue a credit to me. I will be using that to buy the more heavy duty type.
Cart is sturdy and easily driven, but shipping problems

We love this cart! We use this cart to bring supplies around during wind power presentations for field trips. For each presentation, we carry a box of supplies and a boxfan. Historically, we have used hand-truck type apparatuses, but found that often the boxes fell off. These carts make carrying our equipment much easier.
We often move around in tight spaces, and the turning radius (which is extremely small) is extremely helpful. The cart is sturdy and the wheels look as if they'll last for quite a while.

I am a teacher who lugs materials all over a large campus. I saw this product on display at a different store and knew it would be perfect, as I really like the ability to fold it up and store it in my small office. It folds up in a pinch and is also quite sturdy. The problem is, it smells AWFUL. At first, I had no idea what was causing the toxic, almost moth ball-like odor! It is so bad that I had to leave it outside, in the rain, so the school community wasn't exposed to it on a daily basis. I had also, prior to leaving it outside, placed several cardboard boxes full of cloth materials in it, and now all of the materials smell. I don't know if it was treated with some sort of water repellant or something? On top of all this, I suffer from migraines. Having this nearby caused a trigger for several headaches in the last month before I finally figured out where the smell was coming from. I'm not quite sure what to do!

Folds nicely and fits into the trunk of a small car with some room to spare for other things. Seems to hold up well with a 5-year old being pulled around in it. Solid rubber tires pull well with rotating tires in front for easy steering. It's a little heavy to lift once folded (for the average woman, anyway), but do-able. The only drawback is the smell when it first arrives, apparantly from some sort of chemical used to protect it. It has to "air" for a few days before using it in an enclosed space.
Product arrived to my house broken and looked like something another customer returned. On top of it, the wagon actually has some weight to it once folded up. Being an online only product we could not use it as a christmas present due to its return.

This was a great buy and I would recommend it to anyone who need to haul light equipment from their vehicle to any where. It fold up nicely and fits in a small amount of space. The only thing that is a little difficult is to get the center to fold up - I have seen similar carts that have a pulley built in that you can yank upward, which helps with the overall folding process. Also, while it is light weight, when the cart is folded the wheels are a bit heavy when trying to pick the car up by yourself. All in all though this is a great product and comes in very handy - it was the best purchase for me and my dog agility equipment.

I bought this wagon as a gift for my dad for Father's Day. It had gotten good reviews so it seemed like a great choice. First the smell is terrible! The chemicals they treat this thing with are overwhelming! It stunk up my entire garage! I did not keep the wagon long enough to tell you how long the smell lasts. The first time we used the wagon my dad commented about how tough it was to pull, well the front wheel seemed even & out of balance. It only got worse, the wheel wobbled back & forth making it nearly impossible to pull! Tried tightening the wheel did not correct the problem. Was able to return the wagon without any hassles other than the hassle of trying to find another wagon from a different source. Bottom line stay away from this wagon!
