Gardener’s Supply Cart
Looking for the Sofia Vergara of garden carts? Look no further than this gorgeous lass with a strong work ethic to go with her beauty. This cart makes any gardener feel like a pro with its hauling capacity of up to 400 pounds. The flat bottom means you can haul a host of pots and other items that might tip in a conventional cart or wheelbarrow.
Kobalt Steel Wheelbarrow
This classic steel Kobalt wheelbarrow features a tire that never goes flat and a solid steel tub that will stand up to heavy use. This tough wheelbarrow at a decent price point is also surprisingly light to maneuver, a nice plus when it comes to storage.

Ironton Steel Garden Wagon
To road test this cart, we first had to get past some assembly instructions that might have challenged even an MIT grad. Too bad, because this 400-pound capacity cart is as solid as they come, built for both home garden and farm applications.

True Temper Wheelbarrow
A steel wheelbarrow will stand the test of time, and this True Temper model has hauling capacity on top of its durability. If you're looking for real long-term investment and incredible strength, this could be your guy.

Total Control Garden Cart
Ergonomics play a big part in cart and wheelbarrow design, and this well-designed hauler is a cross between a wheelbarrow and a cart. The cart maintains a low center of gravity and makes even heavy loads a breeze with high handles you won't need to reach for. Using this cart is remarkably easy and will make even the most challenging garden chores a pleasure.

The Poly-Tough Cart features a handle long enough to save your back. Its relatively lightweight design also allows the cart to be pushed or pulled. Large, center-mounted wheels and metal "kickstands" make navigating this handy cart easy-peasy. Heavy loads can be "scooped" up when the cart is tipped, one of the many subtle but important design features in this top-notch cart.
Gorilla Carts Poly Yard Cart
This Gorilla Cart is built to tackle a variety of garden chores. Four pneumatic tires offer great balance and the ability to traverse all kinds of uneven, bumpy terrain. This handy cart is the grown-up version of the little red wagon you loved as a kid.

True Temper Poly Wheelbarrow
The six-cubic-foot poly wheelbarrow is a nose to the grindstone worker. Because it's plastic, it handles a little easier than a steel barrow. A deep bucket and easy to grip handles make this a solid economical choice.
Buy It: Walmart, $89.00

Have something epic to move around your yard? Say a pile of bricks that would make even the most resolute soul weep? You're going to need this definitely-up-to-the-task Rubbermaid cart.
