Additional Information

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.

      Comments about : Large Gardener's Supply Cart:

      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.

          I purchased this cart to help simplify life for us. It holds more than a wheelbarrow and is easier to maneuver. Assembly was time consuming, but once that was out of the way, so happy we have this. Looking forward to many years of use! Currently we are using it as an aid to farm maintenance. Next will come planting and then harvesting, and all points in between! We love it!

            This cart was a gift to my son for Christmas. He told us he wanted a wheelbarrow and my father has one of your garden carts and it is in great condition after many decades of use, so we felt it was a good choice. My husband and I put it together and it is used daily by my son and grandson for a variety of purposes. So far, it has been used to haul firewood, leaves, straw, rocks, dirt and other tools around the yard. They especially love the ability to lift the end to dump debris. I know they will enjoy this cart for years to come just as my dad has enjoyed his!

            Comments about : Large Gardener's Supply Cart:

            Assembly took about two hours with two people. The instructions were a little vague ... not always sure which section of the cart was being referred to in the directions. The heft and the quality of the materials is very good, however, and there were plenty of bolts and T-nuts, but there were a couple places where it was a bit of a squeeze to get the bolts and the pre-drilled holes to align properly. Please separate the 5/8" bolts from the 3/4" bolts - they so close in size that they are hard to differentiate.

              The best sign is that neighbors ask to use our cart when they have brush or large loads to move.
              We purchased our first cart from Garden supply apx. 25 years ago. The only reason we are replacing it is that a tree crushed our first one.

                This is a replacement for 3 previous competitor's cheaper versions. Unlike the cheaper knock off Gardener's Large Supply Cart is built to last.I love it and expect it to be my final cart.

                Comments about : Large Gardener's Supply Cart:

                We've been totally satisfied with our Gardners cart. We had purchased a bargain cart at one of the "tool" stores and it didn't last a season. It's presently a flat cart held together with clamps - the wood was of such poor quality the fastening screws puled out of the "plywood". The foreign tires have to be frequently re-inflated. Our Gardners cart is better built than our first cart, a Garden Way (the company no longer exists) cart which we've had for over 25 years. That cart hauled 15 cord of firewood for over 10 years plus hauled plants for our customers of our greenhouse.
                The Gardners cart exceeds the quality of our old cart and we expect to be passing it on to the next generation.

                This cart is easier to manage than a wheelbarrow, especially with large loads. The tires make it easy to push or pull over lawns and gravel.

                My only suggestion would be to inset the screw heads in the bed of the cart so you aren't "jared" when using a shovel and hit the heads.
