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.

GOOD IDEA, TERRIBLE EXECUTION
By S P Boston

About Me Getting Started
Comments about Large <i>Gardener's Supply</i> Cart, Red:
It took us almost three hours to assemble this, and we are not dumb. It is complicated, the instructions are not clear, and EVEN IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING you will strip bolts, and have a very hard time getting some of the connections to work properly. It was a very big project to build it.Also, the build quality is not top notch. This is a nice cart when done, but not as strong as I was expecting, with the axle held on by two pinch irons, and the other materials thinner and less durable than I had hoped.I love the company, and their other products. But this is NOT the place to get a cart. Not sure where else to turn, but there must be a good place to get a solid easy-to-build garden cart.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Master Gardener
[...]The biggest problem with this cart is the assembly. There is absolutely no reason why it can't come with all of those T-nuts already in place. The instructions, too, would be more helpful if they stated that step one is to pound all of those nuts into place before doing anything else; otherwise, you have to flip the whole thing over and over again which is awkward and weakens the completed construction (the sides, in particular). I've had a few problems with balancing the load. Take care when loading or the cart will tip and possibly injure someone. I had expected to be really excited about this cart but I find myself thinking that it is better than nothing.

About Me Avid Gardener
I owned one of these carts 30 years ago and I loved it. I had a little hobby farm and used the cart for hay transport and, best of all, cleaning out the barn. My only criticism is the assembly process. ALL the T-nuts should be installed in the factory. They are very difficult to hammer into the wood. Some go in easily, but most will not go all the way in. As a result, when the screws go in, they push the T-nuts out. Very frustrating.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great cart, lousy assembly instructions
from South Carolina
I'm happy with the cart but the assembly instructions leave MUCH to be desired. I think it would be helpful to most customers if you identified the assembly pieces with a picture - especially of the various sizes of bolts. The instructions should be very clear as to which bolt is required. First of all, the first step should not be placing T-nuts and bolts into the side panels. The first step should be to pound T=nuts into almost every hole you find. I don't understand why the T-nuts weren't installed at the factory. It would certainly simplify things (You wouldn't have to be flipping the cart again and again to complete the bolting.) Seconldly, the angle irons do not fit into the corners of the U-joint piece. They should be aligned with the front edges of the side panels and then the U-joint aligned with those pieces. I spent hours doing this step alone - even though I knew what it should look like, the holes simply wouldn't line up. It would be helpful if the curved metal legs were marked "left" or "right". Why is one end of the handle tube open and the other closed? I was not able to insert bolts into two bottom trim pieces because they just didn't line up. Whatever you do, DON'T misplace a single bolt, nut, or T-nut. You have only enough to do the job! I have my cart at long last, but if I had to do it again, I would buy one that is already assembled or one that comes with far, far better instructions. Overall, the instructions could use better illustrations and, perhaps, more of them. I've had considerable experience assembling bookshelves, file cabinets, entertainment centers, etc. I should have been able to assemble this project with greater ease.

Instructions to small to read or follow
Hard to assemble. Instructions to small to read easily. Instructions not clear. Wood not high quality. Paint thin.
Love my cart but....
By Gardener Sue
from Lafayette, In
I love my cart but the assembly instructions were not clear and we all were very frustrated; and I am a person that reads instructions and don't mind the assembly process. Could these be assembled and then broken down before shipping? (To confirm alignment, supplies etc.)I love the ease of push or pull and my back is much happier. I look forward to years of use!

Handy garden cart
from San Antonio, TX
Have not used it yet since it took a long time to get it assembled. Screw holes were not properly aligned for the handles. It took three people to bend and muscle the handles into place.

Wow, I can load a lot of mulch in this
By Garden Gal
from Rosebush, MI
It would be beneficial to have it weather treatedbecause at some point it's going to get wet.
Some assembly required is a misnomer.
from North Andover, Ma
There was a significant amount of assembly that could have been done prior to shipping. I can understand having to put the large parts together but not every nut and bolt! [...]
