According to Oxford Dictionaries, a gorilla is “a dominant contender within a particular sphere of operation or activity.” After having had the opportunity to test drive the Gorilla Carts Heavy-Duty Steel Utility Cart (GOR1001), I can attest that this is, by definition, a ‘gorilla.’ You might naturally assume it’s a gorilla solely because of its heavy duty steel frame, steel mesh bed and removable full-size poly bed liner. That is only part of the reason why.
Whether you are a light or heavy duty gardener, there is a Gorilla Cart Steel Utility Cart for you to go bananas over. The steel utility carts are offered in a wide variety of sizes and weight bearing capacities ranging from 400 to 1,400 pounds, complete with rugged pneumatic tires designed to conquer any terrain. The GOR1001 model that I evaluated was rated for 1,000 pounds, had 13” pneumatic tires with bed dimensions measuring 49 inches by 24.5 inches and an overall height of 44.1 inches. And, I can report that I did not “go ape” during the cart’s assembly (my husband thanks you) – it took only 20 minutes to put the steel cart together. It was very fast and simple, and did not eclipse my level of patience.
Need to move flats of flower and vegetable plants? Bags of mulch and garden soil? How about yard waste, heavy rocks or even tree limbs? I did – and I did it all! Talk about feeling like the king of the jungle! Items big or small, even unwieldy ones, can be transported effortlessly via this versatile multi-use cart, which features removable sides for easy conversion to a flatbed cart.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that this cart had a heavy duty steel frame with a steel mesh bed. Wait – I think I already did. Why is this important you ask? Aside from the obvious strength and durability, gardeners will appreciate the fact that they can water their plant containers on the cart, as the water will easily drain on the steel mesh.
And what about its navigation prowess you ask? This cart allows you to transport even heavy loads with great maneuverability and easy steering – even through the negotiating of tight turns. And, yet another boon for gardeners: A carefully planned garden could even allow room for the cart to move between garden rows with ease! However, if you’re looking to use your cart in more wide open spaces, you can hitch it to an ATV or tractor for an easy tow via its convertible 2-in-1 handle.
Whether you’re a casual or die-hard gardener, Gorilla Carts Heavy-Duty Steel Utility Carts are ideal for all your outdoor projects – and for making gardening easier!
