Customize garden carts for farm tasks
publication date: Oct 1, 2010
I’ve been using garden carts for years. The ubiquitous plywood and conduit design of carts made by companies like Carts Vermont are incredibly versatile, simple and tough. One of my carts lasted more than a decade, hauling everything from hundreds of pounds of harvested vegetables to a farmer with a broken foot. After that kind of abuse, day in and day out, in all weather, it quite literally fell apart, more or less irreparably. Ten years is a pretty good track record, so I salvaged the wheels, slapped in some new bearings, chopped off the axle and made a few changes I’d been thinking about for years.
