Heavy duty Gorilla carts make yard jobs easy

gorilla CartAnyone who works in their garden or yard knows that there’s always something to do. The tasks change with the seasons. Along with unending tasks comes the thoughts of getting and using the best tools to do the job and make it easier. As if yard work could ever be considered easy.

A while back when dinosaurs roamed the earth most folks used wheelbarrows and little red wagons to haul trash, grass clippings and yard construction materials hither and yon, wherever their current projects beckoned.

I did too. But I never really like wheelbarrows. I always found them awkward to use. I mean, why did I have to worry about balancing the darn thing on one wheel as I headed for a grass clippings or trash dump site/ Sometimes, all too often, the wheelbarrow tipped and spilled its contents. As I grumbled and scooped everything up and reloaded, I always thought there had to be a better way.

I tried my little play wagon. It was painted red, but I don’t remember the brand name anymore. But it did have removable fences. Using it I could haul a little more. But it was a job. The wagon’s hard rubber tires were far too narrow and really dug into soft sol and clay way deep. And the solid, thin metal wheels just wen’t strong enough to haul much.

So when I came across theses babies made by Gorilla Carts I knew I had found a winner. Not only is the construction of these monsters solid, but the hauling capacity is amazing. Up to 1400 pounds. That’s a lot of yard trash, I grant you, but for cement, stone and rocks it is not.

So check ’em out.
