Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Very sturdy, easy attach to mower, looks good, moves easily but bounces on uneven terrain

Cons:None for me

The Bottom Line: A sturdy cart which comes in handy when working around the yard. Comfortable to use.


With my purchase of the John Deere LA175 (http://www.epinions.com/review/John_Deere_Lawn_Tractor_LA175_epi/content_509994569348) at Lowes, I was given a free $229 utility cart and with the economy like it is, I was a happy shopper.  I do have an old red metal cart which has served me well for many years but there's nothing wrong with something new plus pride in my new mower is heightened when I use the matching cart.  Mark it up to pride!

When my new mower was delivered so was the assembled cart.  I knew I'd not be able to assemble it so I paid Lowes $20 to do it. 

What John Deere says about the cart:

It's compression-molded using CoPolymer Polypropylene with optimum thickness in all areas for superior strength and durability. It's a solid one-piece 3/4-in. diameter axle for superior strength with sloped design allowing for easy and convenient emptying without the need to unlatch or remove tailgate. The ribs are molded into the bottom which prevent a shovel from interfering with hardware. There's wide turf-tread pneumatic tires for excellent flotation and minimum rolling resistance.

CoPolymer Polypropylene has high impact chemical and corrosion resistance, is very pliable, is lightweight with exceptionally high strength to weight ration, can withstand cracking due to environmental stress, has good abrasion resistance, and no moisture absorption. Polypropylene (polypropene) is a thermoplastic polymer.  Polymer turns to a liquid when heated and freezes to a very glassy state when cooled sufficiently. This will be my first spring (year) to use the cart so I can't how it will hold up over several years of use.

HOW I'VE USED THE CART:

I've hauled grass and weed clippings along with small tree limbs, twigs and rocks.  Every spring I spend around a month cleaning up my yard.  I start by picking up limbs from the many assorted trees on my property and then progress to twigs and finally, it's rock picking time.  Rocks breed in winter months leaving thousands of their offspring lying about waiting for me to notice, bend my aching back and pick them up.

There's an old county road bed in the front of my property which I keep mowed and clean.  Families and travelers through the area frequently stopped at the Get-N-Go store for snacks, etc., and over several decades the road in front of the store had rock and gravel added when the county was feeling generous with county funds.  I'm still picking (and digging) up varied sizes of rock along with broken glass from this very old store (and old county road).

I attach the cart to my mower using a hitch pin slid through "tongue and hitch" bracket and secure it with a cotter pin.  I've only used my cart for towing but it can also be used as a push cart.  Instructions on attaching and using as a push cart are in the manual.  I store my hitch and cotter pin in the tool tray of my mower.  They're handy when I want to use the cart.

Using the cart is easy and quite handy when working in my yard.  I've loaded it with collected debris and hauled it off (back field).  I find using this cart is easier to empty than my old metal cart.  For one thing, it's lighter in weight and I don't have to struggle with a back lid (lay it flat).  Just lift up the handle and tip the cart forward.  So far, the only heavy items I've emptied are rocks but they slide easily and it only takes a few swipes to empty the last of them out.
 
MAINTENANCE:

Each season lubricate areas with light machine oil, grease the wheel bearings with 20 weight oil, tighten loose hardware, and keep your tires adequately filled (don't exceed maximum recommended pressure).

A FEW SAFETY MEASURES:

Don't exceed the 300 lb weight capacity
Don't carry passengers (especially children)
Don't use on highway
Don't use on slopes and grades
Don't tow behind a vehicle

I advise against hauling gas in your cart.
Read your manual and safety warnings.

Many thanks to Dawn (dlstewart) for adding this to the data base so quickly, and I do mean quickly (as in a matter of hours)!
