TC1840H steel garden cart review update

It's been over 2 years since my first review of the TC1840H steel yard cart and it's still holding up to some heavy work outs.

I've noticed the price has gone up about 10 percent since we got ours 4 years ago.

If the factory asked me for some input on the next generation I would request wheels that were more heavy duty like what most wheel barrows have and maybe some slightly taller sides to increase the capacity.

Mark, I love mine too. (It's really a wagon. Carts have two wheels.) If they used bigger wheels it'd be tippier. They do make a wider one (with even shorter sides) and I use it on steeper cross slopes to avoid tipping. A nice addition is a pulling harness. I use a sled harness: I'm thinking about a braking system that pulls wooden brake blocks against the back wheels. Safer and easier for going down hill. I put bicycle brakes on my big wheel handcart many years ago and it worked great.

We've noticed several of those things --- the tendency of the cart to tip over on uneven terrain when loaded down is its one flaw. And we tend to rig quick and dirty harnesses with the tow strap when we need to do serious hauling.
