I bought one for hauling dirt and planting flowers. Once I got it home, I realized it was the exact size of what I had been dreaming about for a custom cat litter box to fit inside a bedroom closet. I put it in the closet, and braced it with a cat carrier on one side and the cat litter on the other side. Perfect fit!! It even had a place for the cat scoop. My cats use it and there is no more kitty litter being shot all over the floor from them pawing at the litter. I went back to the Home Depot and bought a 2nd cart to use outside. It makes a lot of noise as I push it across the lawn and driveway, and it would be nice if the cart handle has higher, but it does a great job. I am happy with both carts.
Pros: Durable, Vibrant Color, Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality, Strong, Stylish, Great Quality, Good Shape
This cart is the most valuable piece of lawn equipment I own. Easy for children to use also. I purchased a dark green one in Jacksonville, Fl 12 or 13 yrs ago, today that one is retiring. In the summer I fill it with water and wash my pups in it.
Pros: Durable, Vibrant Color, Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Strong, Great Quality, Good Shape, stong and durable friend

So glad I picked this up - It is much easier to handle than a traditional wheel barrow - more stable. It has 4 wheels. It is a workhorse for the garden - not suitable as a cement mixer/hauler or other more taxing wheelbarrow-type tasks -but it is great for hauling mulch, top soil and plants. It says it can hold 250lbs and I believe it. I also really like the tray to hold tools and a cool drink! Overall a great value!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Strong, Great Quality
Highly recommended and price is best at Home Depot! Sturdy, light-weight, balanced for dumping, narrow width great to maneuver and store. Tires can't deflate! Easy to flip preventing rain fill. Rimmed shelf useful for tools or 4" pots. Might tip when large load dragged over heavily tree-rooted yard, but otherwise stable, even on inclines. Pull rather than push when heavily loaded.
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Strong, Great Quality, Good Shape, good design
Nice little cart. I use it to carry around yard waste as i'm gardening or cleaning up around the property. It's all plastic so I wouldn't use it for any heavy hauling. But this makes it very light weight so my wife can pull it around easily even when full. The four wheels help a lot too (they are also plastic). I can see where the front lip can, and probably will, break as other reviewers have mentioned but I don't use it as a wheel barrel. The whole thing is hard, non-bendable plastic. If you don't beat it up like a plastic trash can then it should hold up fine.
My kids use it to push each other around in. They've filled it with water to use as a make-shift water table (no drain holes). The cubby on the side has drain holes so their toys dry out nicely. As they get older I'm sure they will break this, like everything else I have.
Pros: Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Good Shape
Great little cart, especially for the price. It holds a lot more brush and other clippings than my wheelbarrow; I can pile it high and put a bungee cord across to hold things on till I get to the curb. I also haul bags of mulch and compost but only one or two bags at a time. With 4 wheels it’s also more stable than my wheelbarrow.
The tray for small tools is really handy, too, for gloves, clippers, etc.
I haven’t had any trouble going across concrete, asphalt, even flagstones with it, although since the wheels are hard plastic they do make noise (but they never go flat like the tire on my wheelbarrow).
I haven’t used my wheelbarrow since I got this cart.
The cart's light weight is a big plus for me, and its flat bottom inside is prefect for mixing soil for pots and filling raised beds. When I first bought this cart I was concerned that it wouldn't last long, in particular the plastic wheels. However, it has done two hard-working summers now and apart from a couple of cracks at the top front caused by over-loading & rough-handling by energetic teenage helpers, it's going strong. I'm now waiting hopefully for the carts to return on sale at the store so I can buy a replacement (in advance) as I don't want to be without one. Don't make the mistake of buying the black cart without the rear wheels - it's not as good as this light green one. Oh - and don't rest the cart pointing downhill on a slope as those 4 wheels allow it to run down the slope.
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Strong, Good Shape, light weight easy to lift/move (empty), fits in the back of my car, perfect for a short person
I love this cart. It works for me perfect, I am a small gal, and this is perfect for working in my flower and garden beds. Easy to manuever and to fit between rows while weeding. It is light weight for easy emptying. I would buy it all over again.
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Strong, Great Quality, Good Shape
This cart is great for transporting and mixing potting soil for garden beds and containers. It is easy to push and easy to tilt to dump soil out. The upper tray is convenient to hold items. The handle could have been a little higher to make it more comfortable for pushing. (Or, maybe I should be a little shorter!) Overall, a good purchase.
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Functionality, Great Quality
We have used this same lawn cart for 8 years. We have used it way over it's recommended capacity and it never let us down. We have damaged and repaired the front edge over and over by hauling stuff that it wasn't made for (mostly blocks and cement) until finally last week we just had to give up and buy new. We are going to buy 2 and put 1 in the attic as I just can't live without it at my disposal. It's rugged, easy to use, has no maintenance issues, cleans up beautifully and it's well worth owning.
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Strong, Great Quality, Good Shape, rolls on 4 wheels no lifting
What a joy when I could throw the old wheelbarrow away with its (almost always) flat tire and heavy, wobbly carrying capacity. This Ames cart is pretty to look at, very sturdy, just the right weight, and easy to wheel around and empty out. Lastly, and decidedly in its favor, It doesn't hit a bump and tip over. Because it is narrower, It also stores nicely when you are ready to put it away. Bonus: it comes all put together. I will never buy a wheelbarrow again!
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Strong, Great Quality, Good Shape, stores easily
I read the review before buying this and pretty much agree with them. It's a good value and worth the money for what I paid for.
It's low enough and holds good amount of dirt for the yard work that I am doing. when the cart is full that's another story. Its really hard to move around the yard and whoever designed the wheels should revise them. Extra space for tools is nice touch and feels sturdy at full load.
I do use it in conjuction with wheel barrel so that I carry two loads of dirt at a time. So it's easy to compare the two.
I would recommend to those who want to use it as a spare and for light duty work. I would not use it as the main cart.
I HAVE THREE OF THESE WONDERFUL LAWN CARTS….. THIS IS NOT ONLY USED FOR GARDENING BUT MANY MANY OTHER USES. I KEEP MY POTTING SOIL IN ONE AND I TAKE IT WHEREVER I NEED TO REPOT OR NEW POTTING'S. I USE ONE FOR HAULING SO MANY THINGS. I HAVE ONE I KEEP CLEAN FOR PARTYS AND FILL IT WITH ICE AND SINK IN SODAS, WATER, WINE, BOWL OF CUT LEMONS FOR DRINKS ETC. IT HAS BEEN USED FOR SO MANY THINGS I CAN'T EVEN MENTION THEM ALL… DON'T HESITATE BECAUSE YOU WILL LOVE THEM. I PUT A LIVE CHRISTMAS TREE IN SOIL AND DECORATED THE WHOLE TREE AND CART WITH LITES AND DECORATIONS. YOU CAN MOVE IT AROUND AND I† LOOKED FABULOUS. WE GOT A LOT OF COMMENTS ON HOW GREAT IT LOOKED. ALL IN THE IMAGINATION. RE-ENVENT THE LAWN CART…. ENJOY…HOPE THIS HELPED….
Pros: Durable, Vibrant Color, Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Strong, Stylish, Great Quality, Good Shape, no in installation necessary
This is my second lawn cart. I replaced the original because it began to split horizontally along the leading edge down into the cargo area. I've had to reinforce it to continue using it. I was hoping the new cart would be designed with more reinforcement but it doesn't.
Pros: Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Good Shape, Light Weight
In June when I was visiting our son in Illinois he was using this cart when he was weeding his flower beds. I asked him the name and where he purchased the cart. His cart is a little different shape because it is an older model. I came back to Idaho and found out Home Depot carried the brand and I ordered it. So far it works perfect for me as I'm older and have a hard time with a wheel barrow....great product!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Great Quality, Good Shape
Have had this little cart for well over a year. Have toted full loads of pavers, concrete, mulch and yard debris. Still in great shape even though it just sits out in the weather.....would replace it in a heartbeat.....
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Strong, lightweight so it's easy to maneuver
