Exclusive | Vermont-Built 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 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". The big wheels with pneumatic tires 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. 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.

    tough assembly

    By Brooke

    About Me Getting Started

    Comments about Large <i>Gardener's Supply</i> Cart:

    I have used this product at other's homes so I was excited to get it. There are a couple of issues with assembly. First, make sure that every piece is perfect. one of my rails arrived a bit bent and the bolt and T-net is not a sufficient system for tightening in fact of that. But you cannot really tell if ALL of the piece are in the right shape. The metal pieces are supposed to be sturdy, so they cannot be bent by hand. That is good, but I could not attach the legs to the cart to my satisfaction because the shape was a bit OFF and it interfered with the handle. Finally, the bolt and t-nut system is tricky. there is not way to hold a t-net still besides the force of the prongs into the wood. If the bolt and the nut do not match up right, the force of screwing the bolt in pushes out the net and then you have nothing to work with. I am pretty competent at assembly and I read the directions carefully many times before and throughout. This is an assembly job for someone very competent, don't try it if all of the pieces do not arrive in perfect shape...and even if they do, you may still have trouble with those t-nuts.

        With 2 acres of garden, we needed a cart. This is not the cart to purchase. It will not last, poor built, wheels will rub and have much slack against the side of the cart, no washers or lock nuts, holes do not line up, it is a TOY.....best left at the store!

        Comments about Large <i>Gardener's Supply</i> Cart:

        This is a well-made product that will last for years, unlike a lot of competing products that are made in China with poor components. I now have two: my other one is 10 years old, and it looks almost brand new after a decade of heavy use. My only complaint is that the assembly instructions are very poorly written and make a straightforward task much more difficult.

        Comments about Large <i>Gardener's Supply</i> Cart:

        We actually bought this for a specific hauling task -- moving some heavy equipment parts from an inaccessible wooded area and up a long hill. Worked great. The large wheels and wide wheel base made the task easy.One minor deficiency we quickly discovered, is that there were no brakes on the wheels. When there is enough weight in the cart, and pointing down hill, it wants to go, even when the handle is not lifted. It will happily start going on its own down the hill without you. So if you are on a steep hill be very careful. Most of the assembly was easy, but it got very difficult at the end. There were 4 holes that were supposed to line-up so the final bolt could go in, but the holes were 2 to 3 inches apart. We finally got a large bar clamp and bent the legs of the cart a little, so the holes would line-up and we could get the bolt in.One of the wheels also broke at the bearings on the first day of use. Perhaps this was due to carry a heavy load up a hill at an angle to the slope. Basically the bearigs are only pressed into the wheel hub, and popped out. A temporaty fix was to just pressing the bearings back in by hand, and that would work again for a few trips. We've not made a better fixed yet, but we think it can be permanantly fixed with a few dollars of 3/4 inch washers and bushings from the hardware store. The washers and bushings would basically keep the bearings pressed into the wheel hubs.

        Comments about Large <i>Gardener's Supply</i> Cart:

        The best thing is that it is balanced so great that it can be moved with one hand for most loads. There isn't much that I don't haul. It resembles one that I purchased 28 years ago and was still going fine until I fell a tree across it. If this one lasts that long , and I don't know why it shouldn't, it makes per year very affordable much less to say a back saver.

          Have had one since they first came out. Now on my third one, not because the others failed but I moved and left the previous ones to be used by the new owners.
