1. Like the plants you care for, garden carts come in a variety of sizes, types, and materials. Most are made of wood, steel, or plastic. While shopping, think critically about how you'll use your garden cart to help determine what type suits you best. Wood carries that classic look, steel provides ultimate durability, and plastic garden carts are often lightweight and versatile.
2. Garden carts are available with a variety of tires suited to specific terrains. Choose your tire type based on your typical work space. For example, pneumatic (rubber inflatable) tires provide extra cushion and are ideal for rough surfaces such as gravel or mulch. Carts with flat-free solid tires are best for areas with scattered debris.
3. Watch where you're going! If you're going to need to maneuver your garden cart through the doorway of a shed or garage, be sure the width allows proper clearance. All of our garden carts and farm carts have dimensions listed in the bullets.
4. Not all carts are created equal, so consider what you'll be hauling and choose your trailer cart tub material accordingly. For example, steel tubs work well for hauling asphalt, whereas the flexibility of a plastic tub makes it easier to clean out concrete.
5. Farm carts are those with materials and sizes that are ideal for typical farm tasks. Whether your operation is small or large, simple or complex, a farm cart makes moving heavy equipment, material, feed, and more a much shorter order.
6. The more you plan to use your garden cart, the heavier duty it should be. The weight of your loads should also be a determining factor. Carts are available in two types: solid floors and expanded metal floors. The expanded metal floors allow dirt and water to fall through the cart, making them a good choice for the gardener.
7. Special firewood carts are designed for the retrieving, hauling, and storing of logs for the fire. Whether you go out and chop down wood for your indoor hearth, or need an accessory for your backyard fire pit, a cart to haul that wood will soon seem indispensable.
8. Storing a cart can be inconvenient if it is not taken into consideration before purchasing. If space is limited, look for models that store easily. Some garden carts even fold up for incredibly compact storage.
9. We happily accept volume orders on all of our carts. Call 1-866-736-2084 for corporate and large order discounts. We gladly accept corporate purchase orders from private businesses, schools, and government agencies.
"I am a volunteer with the marching band at the high school. We own three of your carts and needed one more. We use them to help us move raincoats and other band related equipment when we go to competitions and football games. They are the perfect size, handy, and easy to maneuver."
