I got this in March 2015 and have used it a lot all ready. We removed a wagon full of rocks from a garden and Idumped it with no problems. I am a woman with severeback damage. This Gotilla Gardening dump cart is everything I need for ltaking leaves and branches to ourbudn pile. I plan on using it for caring a concrete bench to itsdisplay in our acre yard. Well worth the investment. Lots of bolts to install. I putit together and had my son in law tightened them up. So I have no clue why anyonw would have a comp, aint. Lol. A little labor to save on time and pain. Plus my dog loves riding in it
Assembly wasn't horrible. I was missing 7 washers, but luckily I had some that worked. The instructions were equivalent to cheap assembled furniture... you have to lay the parts out first and study the diagram closely to get it right. There is some adjustment and patience needed for the latch on the front. The cart pulls well with a load in it by hand or with a mower/ATV. I loaded it up with some firewood and hauled it to my back woods with the riding mower; probably close to 200 pounds worth. I didn't take it very fast (well, my mower isn't very fast), but I had no issues through the uneven yard. The dumping action is quite useful. I noticed that under a heavy load the front and rear tires touch, making it a little difficult to pull forward. The only other concern is long term reliability. The "hinge" that allows the bucket to dump happens to ride on 2 bolts from within the plastic bucket. I fear that they will eventually crack the plastic, or pull through completely. Obviously, if you abuse it, it will break... but I think the advertised 600 pound capacity is pretty inflated (300 pounds being more accurate).
Good: Tires, 2-way handle Bad: Tub is thin and cracks easily. Front axle separates from frame under load because they are attached with plastic sleeves. Axle replacement costs $34 with shipping which is over half the cost of a new cart.
Love this cart. Putting it together took Herculean effort, but the end result has been terrific. I have hauled bricks, leaves and tree limbs around the yard without effort and the ability to dump out leaves has made fall raking and clean-up much easier.

Thoroughly enjoy using this dump cart. Easy to fill and even easier to empty. I appreciate any tool/implement that helps to make the yard work I love to do, more of a good experience and less of a chore.

I had the first unit half-assembled before noting the plastic "tub" had cracks in it. Had to open 3 more boxes before finding one that wasn't cracked. Now that we have an intact one, it's been a good cart - but the dumping mechanism relies on your brute strength, so it's actually easier to just tip the whole cart and pivot on its back wheels. Overall, worth it when it goes on sale.
Works good for small jobs, I have used it for several mounts and the tires have not went flat or lost air. I like the way it dumps and hooks to my mower, with the handle that changes from a hook up bar for my lawn mower or a wagon to pull the grandkids around with. I would buy another one if I need it.
I was looking for an alternative to a wheel barrel and I saw this at Sears. I don't think it will replace it but it is good for a few things.My wife does some gardening and it will help carry small pots and plants for her. And it looks like it will be useful when going to the beach. But you need a pickup truck or minivan to carry. It is bulky and awkward to lift and carry and it's on the heavy side. It took me 45 minutes to put together since it comes as a kit in a box. Also keep in mind it's rated to carry up to 600lb, other stores selling similar Gorrilla carts have models rated over 1000lbs even though they look the same.
We live in a wooded area, and always have lots of leaves and twigs to clean up. Since the woods are behind us, this wagon is the perfect way to haul them back to dump them. We have tried using tarps, but that takes two people, and wheel barrows are heavy and tippy. This wagon works perfectly! It is light and easy to dump. The dumping process with the wagon is so much easier than the twisting and dumping of a wheel barrow. Very pleased with this purchase.
This garden cart is very handy. My husband and I use it very much and have had it quite sometime. It is sturdy and withstands the weather very well. Price was very good, purchased it when on sale

I purchased this wagon after seeing in another store. I love the dumping feature. The frame is very sturdy. It is easy to pull even for my 10 year old fully loaded with fire wood. The plastic tub is more flexible than I would prefer but unless you are over loading it I don't see it being a problem. My kids even like to pull each other around the yard in this. The locking mechanism is strong so I don't worry they will accidentally be dumped out.

This dump cart is amazing. It can hold up to 600 pounds. It is easy to use. The kids love to help with the yard work now because they get to pull it around. It is very strong and sturdy.
I bought this cart a couple years ago and it was working great untill the handlebar broke while backing with my tractor. So when i called there customer helpline no one picked up, so i got in touch with a sales rep finally and they sent me a new one from, you guessed it, CHINA. And then a couple weeks after getting the new handel, it broke doing the same thing. Just a little stress in the wrong direction and it splits. Really DO NOT BUY THIS CART. get one of the single axle ********** or even Craftsman Pro.
This cart is very small and plastic tub is thin and bends easily under even light load. Forget about hauling 300lb, 100lb is more likely the limit. Assembly was not too hard, but couple of holes didn't align well and one metal part required some light bending. Painted steel parts are beginning to rust after one year. Tires quality is the worst I've seen, after one year two tubes are not holding air, and all four tires have cracked rubber, both in treads and sidewalls. Tires are smallish, and don't ride as smooth, and in the end good old style wheelbarrow seems like a better choice. Convertible handle is a neat feature but it is nearly useless as one doesn't need tractor to haul the amount of load this cart can hold.
Cart assembly was not user friendly. The Dump latch took a lot of modifications and I was lucky to have materials and tools to do it. We wanted the one that would attach to the Lawn tractor but got one with only a curved handle. Not impressed! Kmart would not let my wife use the award points either.
I love the ease of using this cart. I have a very large yard and it has loads of space for picking up twigs and branches and does a great job in the garden too!
