I’ve been looking at garden carts, because hauling mulch, branches, dirt, and other stuff can be a pain without one.
I don’t really need a large wheelbarrow. I could probably use one, but I don’t want to store one. Garden carts seem to be a little smaller, and they’re more stable.
I’m looking at the Gorilla Carts GOR4PS, which has a poly (plastic) container, dumping feature, steel frame, 10″ pneumatic tires, and 600 pound load rating. It’s pretty inexpensive too – currently $70 shipped from Amazon.
There are steel-bucket garden carts, but they’re larger, heavier, and more expensive. I could always step up to one if or when needed. I have seen convertible metal frame or cage carts, with removable sides. There are also other brands, but Gorilla Carts seems to be widely available and reasonably well-reviewed.
- Inexpensive options
- Different bucket styles available
- 4 wheels for greater stability
- Easier to turn
- Lower to the ground, easier to store under a workbench or shelf
- Can be disassembled for storage
- Some reviews complain about assembly and tire quality
- Lower to the ground, might require more bending?
- Shallower than wheelbarrows
What are some of the other downsides I might not be seeing?
If you have a garden cart, would you recommend it?
