Exclusive | Vermont-Built Large Garden Cart Carries 500 Pounds

  • Tough, long-lasting cart holds up to 500 pounds — as much as 10 wheelbarrows!
  • Even weight distribution and big, pneumatic wheels make pushing and pulling easy
  • End slides open for easy loading, unloading and dumping
  • Watch: Our Vermont Factory

For over 25 years, our garden carts have been a beloved tool of gardeners everywhere. That’s because they were designed specifically to meet the needs of gardeners, not adapted from an industrial utility cart. This garden cart has big wheels with pneumatic tires that roll easily over rough terrain. High sides prevent loose loads like mulch and compost from bouncing out. The axle is positioned to distribute the weight and balance the load. The long handle lets you push or pull with equal ease and has a comfortable neoprene grip. Tough, rust-proof aluminum frame; end slides open for easy dumping. Once you own one of our carts, it’s hard to imagine getting by without it. In fact, many of the original carts are still out there, working hard. Rated "Excellent" by a leading consumer magazine.

            My husband I have put many "things" together over the 30 years of marriage, he is a very patient man and very handy. But this cart put his patience to a test! It took us over 2 hours to assemble this large garden cart. The directions are terrible! Not clear and pretty much inaccurate. Especially putting the front U-brace and the aluminum Angles onto the front end. The pictures don't show accurately where things belong. The T-nuts would fall out when we were screwing in the bolts into them. The holes of the wood panels, brackets didn't line up to insert the screws. We had to use brute strength a few times to get them installed. Overall, the directions and the assembly of this large cart is just awful. We paid a lot of money for this cart, it better hold up after all this aggravation of putting it together!

            Comments about : Large Gardener's Supply Cart:

            Having read the difficult assembly reviews, I was dreading putting this together. The instructions were clear enough and the holes were clean enough to insert the t-nuts and hammer home. All the hardware was present in the bag. I didn't think it was bad until I had to mount the legs after mounting the handle. The handle out of the box was a tad too wide from corner to corner. That prevented the front foot of the leg assembly and half clamp to align with the t-nut. I had to disassemble the handle and bend the handle ends inward. But that meant I couldn't align the handle ends and full clamps. The solution was to loosely assemble one side with full clamps and stick the axle in the other end as a lever and bend it around the rear leg extension. The handle is a little lopsided. A few suggestions from lessons learned: don't tighten all the screws until the part your working on has wiggled into alignment and all the screw threads catching in the t-nuts; may have to use a little muscle to align things; but they do align for the most part; fully support the piece directly underneath to hammer home the t-nuts; use some large fender washers on the inside of each wheel as someone else suggested. In retrospect, I would have mortised the t-nuts in the bottom of the cart with a Forstner bit so they were flush with the surface of the plywood. May have to use sacrificial dowel in the t-nut hole to properly center the bit. I would take the time to do that if doing it again and others have criticized the protruding t-nuts. Cart is sturdy and of very good quality.

              This cart was bought to replace one that was in our family for over 40 years. We went for the larger version this time around and time will tell if that was the right choice. So far, the only issues we've had is that the guides for the front panel needed to be adjusted after assembly because the wood swelled up some. Installation was very straightforward and we had no issues with alignment as others have mentioned.

              Cart went together well, took me about 2 hours. If there's a negative it's that the fittings that are in the bottom don't fit absolutely flush and I hit them with the shovel but I LOVE the cart and its capacity

                  I have only had this cart for a month, but have used it almost everyday, if only I had made the investment years ago. If you are on the fence, get off and buy it.

                  My previous method was a standard wheelbarrow, but as my property is level, nowhere, it was always a challenge. Most raw materials for the garden are dropped at the top of the property and need hauled to the bottom. Doing that with this cart is a snap.

                  The assembly was not confusing, just time consuming for me. The instructions made sense from my perspective.

                  The only thing that I was not stoked about was that the plywood for the body is not great. Should hold up fine, but wish that it was a better quality product.

                  Would be nice to have a hand break for slowing it down on my hills, but it is easy enough to just drop it down and dig the supports into the ground.
