    The 1,000 lb. Capacity is way over rated, I will not ever, try to put that much on it.
    This will be hauling some wood, but will be getting a work out with many other things around the homestead. 13 in. tires should roll pretty good :)

    Heavy-Duty Utility Cart
    •Handle converts between pull handle and trailer hitch
    •1,000 lb. capacity
    •Large 24 in. x 48 in. steel mesh deck
    •Folding removable sides provide load-carrying flexibility
    •All-terrain 13 in. pneumatic tires

    Very nice. I'd either get rid of or modify that handle so the JD 110 would be pulling it.;)

    Nice wagon. I think the handle on those come off so it can be hooked to a pin hitch?

    [Your right about the rated capacity on those. I have had 1 for years only it's the 1 with solid metal sides and bottom. Comes in handy for haulin wood up to the house or pulling a 35 gallon sprayer around the yard behind the garden tractor. One thing I will warn you about is the paint on them sucks. If left in the weather for any length of time it will peel off like nobodies business. Not a big deal but be prepaired. One other thing, those split rims on it. After usein it for awhile check the nylock nuts and the bolts to make sure they are still tight. Even with the nylock nuts they seem to want to loosen up from time to time. It works great for haulin afew Grandkids around the yard too.

    Ya the handle has a couple of pins to pull and U flip it around so it can be hooked to a pin hitch


    The grand kids used to have a ball riding around in the dump cart, the thing is, I had fun to :) , seeing them having fun, their to to old for that now though.
    Thanks for the heads up, I'll keep an eye on the rim nuts.

    The wagon works good for what it is, made in china, over rated capacity.

    I cut a rubber mat to fit in the bottom. I will probably have to figure something out to cover sides, for the other chores it will be doing in the spring ,summer, and fall

    Put down a small pallet I had for a ramp, to roll it up on the back deck , oops no pic of that, works great :cool:

    I've seen that one and thought about it. I'd like to find one just a little bigger. Maybe 36"X48".

    I modded mine with a little welding to make the pin hitch side just hook onto my hitch so I can pull it around the yard with my quad. I have the lessor plastic version and should have gotten the expanded metal one but mine has paid for itself for sure. you will love it!!

    I modified mine by lining the inside with old AL signs, light weight but strong. Now it takes the abuse of hauling wood.[​IMG]

    I think I may build one like these someday.....Chief, that's a great mod with the old signs.....I bet that saves that expanded metal and makes that thing near bombproof...

    Yeah Scotty, it was pretty flimsy when I first got it. I used it one day and realized it would be junk pretty fast. Now, several years later, it has held up great. The crappy rims and tires even hold air :p
