If You Garden You Need A Good Wagon or Cart!

Whether you are into gardening or just need to do some yard work you will need something to haul various materials around. Choosing the best hauler depends on your needs. You should always consider the size of your task. When purchasing a garden wagon, bigger is not always better. When deciding on the best wagon you should consider a few things.

The best garden wagons have a solid sturdy frame. Metal is your best option and then you might consider wood. Plastic frames will get brittle and break easily. They do not hold up to weather or the wear and tear of heavy hauling. Although a very good plastic substitute would be a poly material that is sturdy and weather resistant. Wheels are another consideration. This is what carriers the weight of your loads.

The wheel should be strong and be able to roll smoothly over a variety of ground covers and conditions. Finally you should consider whether or not the sides should be folding. Some models come with sides that fold down so your wagon can be used as a flatbed cart.

Here are some of the top rated garden wagons available.

      Talking about carts that dump, that must have been the kind we had because every time I rode in it with my Dad pulling, out I would go!

      Mom: "Out riding with Dad I see. Come here and let me wash you up."

      These probably wouldn't have helped protect me, no air bags or seatbelts.

      These carts are all very handy. I have an Ace garden cart. Use it all the time.
