Over at Amazon, this Millside Farm Tuff plastic deck wagon that I bought earlier this month has dropped in price to $96.16. I bought mine for $111, which I thought was a fantastic deal.
It’s made in Canada (except for the tires/wheels), and is overall nicely built. I had trouble installing one of the wheels, but a slight bend in the cotter pin did the trick.
It features a 38″ x 20″ plastic deck with a 4″ lip. There are slots for attaching a removable rack. The undercarriage is made of plastic, but feels secure. That’s presumably why the cart only has a 300 lb load rating. It also helps keeps the weight down.
The tires are 10″ x 4″.
Overall, it feels like a solid lightweight cart.
Despite the initial frustration getting one of the wheels secure, I am much more pleased with this purchase than I was the Gorilla Cart I tried to order last year.
300 pounds is a light load for a wagon like this, but is more than I plan to load it up with, at least given the types of materials I bought it to move. If my needs exceed that in the future, I can upgrade.
I was hesitant to post about the Millside Farm Tuff garden cart until I had a better idea of its long-term performance and reliability. But at this point, I’m happy with my purchase, and this morning’s price-drop upped my sense of urgency to get a few words down.
I had originally wanted to buy the version that comes with a removable plastic rack. It kept inching down in price, but someone bought one and the price returned to its full retail price. I figured that if I need a rack, I can build one using 1x lumber.
I am disappointed that a made-in-Canada cart came with made-in-China wheels/tires, but what can you do?

While I’m not yet comfortable in saying “this is great, you should buy one,” I can say that I bought one and am happy enough with my purchase to keep it.
Interestingly Millside also makes a metal undercarriage for DIY wagons ($81.30 via Amazon).
