Re: wagons and carts


Theresa,
Mine LOOKS just like the one in the URL I sent, but as they said on that
website - don't mistake their $119 version for the ones made in China.
Mine's the cheapie from China I suppose.  I would never put 1000 pounds on
it.  But it is every bit as sturdy as I need it to be.  Do they have those
traveling tent sales in your neck of the woods?  I think it's called Chuck
Homier Sales or something like that.  Lots of tools and stuff cheap.  And of
course you have to put it together yourself.

My lot is small, too, and I don't use a cart everytime I work in the yard.
I often use black cement mixing tubs. Perfect size to toss in my tools and
also to hold divisions.  Or to mix soil, lots of jobs.  But when I want to
move 20 pots or bags of mulch, or something I don't want to tilt, a wagon or
cart is very handy.

BTW, I've never been able to master a wheelbarrow; always afraid it'll tip
to one side or the other.

Kitty
