Best Cart for the Gardener | Mac Sports Collapsible Utility Wagon
Transport Made Easy
When I was young, wagons were as clunky as they were useful. Made of wood or metal, they did not fold or transport well. And if you were a kid riding in one, they were too hot or too cold, hard and uncomfortable. Much better options exist today, and they are no longer just for kids. Wagons are now made of soft, polyester material that is durable and cleans up nicely. They are able to hold heavy weight for hauling and models exist with all-terrain wheels. One of the best features is greater portability due to collapsible frames.
My husband recently researched wagons and purchased the Mac Sports Utility Wagon for my birthday. It has been one of the best gifts that I have ever received. It has gotten hours of use, trucking supplies to and from the classes that I teach and rolling home from the grocery store when I have the energy to walk. I can even transport 50 lb bags of feed easily from my van to the chicken coop. My children use the cart, as well. Because it is lightweight and simple to use, they are able to operate the opening and closing mechanism quickly and safely.
Best Wagon for the Gardener
I have used several types of garden carts over the years at The Micro Farm Project. This particular cart has features that have made it an indispensable tool for daily use.
I have been using this cart for a year and a half now, and it is still going strong! It gets pulled around my farm, carting garden and animal supplies. It stands up to large bags of feed, and washes up easily when it gets dirty. I teach classes all over the Valley, and the cart goes with me to transport supplies. It is lightweight and it opens and closes easily, making it much more transportable than other carts that I own. People often comment positively on it, and want to know where I got it. I can honestly say that I would recommend this cart, and I like it more now than I did when I first received it as a gift.
This wagon gets high marks at the Target and Wal-Mart websites, as well as on Amazon.com. This particular review was posted at Wal-Mart.com.
