Need to move heavy items around the garden and need something bigger and easier to move than a wheelbarrow? A cart for gardening will help you get all your outdoor jobs done quickly and easily.
Whether you’re an avid home gardener or a landscaping professional, you need the right cart to get the job done. Here’s what to look for before parting with your hard-earned cash.
Think about the weight of the things you’re going to need to move around. Will your chosen trolley be able to handle it?
If your garden has challenging terrain, choose a cart with larger robust wheels. Pneumatic wheels are a great choice for rough terrain. They can also handle heavy loads better. Solid wheels are good for use where the terrain is flat.
However tempting it is to buy the cheaper option, it’s a false economy. If you need a cart for gardening that’s going to last, buy one that’s made from high-quality materials. Weather-resistant coated steel or polypropylene are both durable choices.
You’ll notice that gardening carts vary in size and design which can make choosing the right one confusing. The best cart for your needs will depend on what jobs you need it for. Are you going to be transporting and tipping loads, say rocks for a rockery? Something like a Tip-A-Truck would be perfect. Or if you need to move heavy items around, say plant pots, a platform cart would be your best bet. Let’s look at each option a little closer.
Our Tip-A-Truck is perfect for home and business use. If you need to move and empty heavy loads, this is a great choice. With its heavy-duty steel frame and polypropylene container, it’s built to last. It’s also super easy to use and maneuver, thanks to its ergonomic handle and rubber wheels.
And yes, we have mentioned the wheels. They slide into the centre of the unit when you are tipping a load which keeps everything stable.
Speaking of tipping, emptying a load is quick and painless thanks to the easy-release tipping mechanism.
A cart for gardening with a platform is a handy bit of kit to have if you need to move large items around. Our Large Hand Drawn Truck has a very generous 750kg capacity and is made from tough, weather-resistant epoxy powder-coated steel. With three-wheel options, it’s easy to navigate any kind of terrain. Need some extra support for the goods you’re moving? You can customise your cart with plywood or sheet steel side and end panels, and a choice of 3 platform sizes.
