Using the Medium Garden Cart

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. The big pneumatic wheels 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.

Great cart for hauling across the yard.

By Stacie

from Virginia

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Medium Gardener's Supply Cart:

I recently moved to a new home and this card was extremely useful in reducing trips across the yard as well as making heavy items easy to transport (I used my sister's cart). Loved it so much I bought one of my own. It took some time for me to assemble but the directions on how to do it are included. Can't wait to use my own cart in the garden and more.

Comments about : Medium Gardener's Supply Cart:

This is the second Vermont garden cart I've purchased--the first one lasted 20+ years. It's a very nice cart, carries a good deal of weight with little effort, and is easy to move about the garden. However, the assembly was tedious and exasperating. It took me 2-1/2 hours to assemble, only to discover that the axle was too short and the wheel hubs rested on the bottom of the cart--which apparently was a problem that had come up with this cart in the past. Customer service was excellent! Everyone I spoke with was knowledgeable, efficient and patient. I did receive a replacement axle, which barely fits, but I can live with it (I'm definitely not going to disassemble this cart to send it back.) To make this a truly worthwhile experience, the manufacturer should pre-install the T-nuts. There are 34 of them, and pounding them into the dry wood was way too difficult, and in some cases it was impossible to pound them in flush with the wood. My advice--definitely wear ear plugs, and put a piece of wood on the underside of the panels when pounding the nuts into the cart body. I would rate the assembly 2-star, and the cart 4-star.

Quality Cart

Comments about : Medium Gardener's Supply Cart:

I liked the aluminum reinforced edges on all wood panels. I would loose fit all screws and connecters until you get it together. I struggled to get the axle and tires to fit.

Cart is easy to use

Comments about : Medium Gardener's Supply Cart:

Would make the axle slightly longer and give us t large flat washers to go inbetween the wheel and the cart as a separator.

Impossible to assemble!

By HSW

from Sherborn, MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Medium Gardener's Supply Cart:

Looks beautiful and useful in the catalog. But the cart was impossible to assemble. Pre-drilled holes were too large for bolts to mesh properly. Have already thrown out the box but wish I could return it.

A real pain to assemble

    • difficult assembly

      Comments about : Medium Gardener's Supply Cart:

      For the price paid, I would expect something that was well built and easy to put together. Neither of those things are true. Does it work? Yes - but after some rigging of my own.
      If you're ready to spend all afternoon putting this together - go for it.
      One of the wheels didn't fit correctly but I bent it and got it to stay - for now.
      I'm keeping it because I spent so long putting it together and it works, but its not worth the price.

      Tires went flat within a couple of months

      By Master gardener

      from Cottage Grove, Oregon

      Comments about : Medium Gardener's Supply Cart:

      We like it, carries and dumps easily, but the tires went flat quickly. Gardener's doesn't carry replacement parts.
