    Cons: Sometimes the bottom of it gets caught on bumpy ground.

    Summary: Either Rubbermaid has excellent ad campaigns or I simply love Rubbermaid products, because as I look around my house I see an awful lot of their products! Along with all the animals on our farm comes a significant amount ... read more

    Pros: easy to use, durable, stable, versatile
    Cons: weight limits because of plastic wheels

    Summary: The Rubbermaid big wheel 7.5 farm tough cart (Model 5642) was given to me as a Christmas present. I have really loved it even though I had asked for a wheelbarrow. I needed a one wheel wheelbarrow to go in a garden with a narrow path so I had to buy an ... read more

    Pros: Lasted over 10 years - occasional use for a number of transport tasks. 
    Cons: Parts and more particularly the wheel sprocketts.   Need to provide minor parts like Sears.

    Summary: I agree a great cart.   Wheels are the problem.  More specifically, on my cart it is the "Sprockets" that have failed.  I need 4 sprockets for my cart.  I can not find anyone who sells this part for this cart.  I guess you can ... read more

    Pros: Great cart except for the wheels.
    Cons: Wheels are garbage. I think the sunlight causes them to crack.

    Summary: Two carts, all four wheels broken. I am currently looking for replacement wheels as well. I have found some that will work for $35 each at www.utilitywheel.com, but since the hubs are wider (3-1/2" vs. 2-1/4"), the axle would have to be replaced with ... read more

    Pros: Great main cart durability
    Cons: Can't replace the wheels when broken
