Love this wood cart
Jan 25, 2021
I have had 3 different carts over the years, and this is by far the best one I have ever seen. It is beautifully made, a breeze to assemble, and carries more wood than the other 2. The wide wheel base means it no longer wants to tip over on my lumpy driveway. The solid tires are not pneumatic, so they will never need inflating. And best of all, the thin tires have very little tread, so I am not dumping snow and dirt all through the house whenever I bring in wood. This keeps my wife happy. It would be better still if there were no tread at all, but now I am being picky. I am in fact delighted. It is more expensive by far, but well worth it.
Well made cart, but the instructions could be better
Nov 12, 2020
I have only just assembled this cart, and i was expecting some possible hole alignment issues because of another review, and I was surprised to see how far off they were. Then I realized I had the piece backwards and the holes lines right up. The only construction notes I have was that the spacers should be a touch shorter, or the axle about an 1/8" longer. When I set one of the end clamps flush, the other clamped to the axle, but didn't full seat. Since I use 16" logs, and wanted to fit this into a narrow space, it didn't matter much because I cut the spacers and the axle shorter and corrected this at that point. If you want to cut it shorter, you will need to cut aluminum tube and a solid steel axle. The tubing needs to be cut square, but the steel I did by eye with an angle grinder. I think durability is going to be fine, no collapsed walls on the square tubing. The instructions are so very lacking. I wish I had held onto them so I would properly explain it. For people who need clear, exact assembly instructions, these are not them. At a price point almost twice as much as many other options, it would make sense to hire someone to redo the assembly instructions.
Nice materials, poor craftsmanship
Sep 22, 2020
I received the cart today. It took five weeks to arrive but I blame that on the postal service. Taking the parts out of the box I was impressed with the quality of the materials. The whole cart consists of bent aluminum tubing with three welded pieces. The welding in nicely done. The pieces are not uniformly bent so the cart is out of alignment. About half the holes do not line up in the assembly process. Using a pry bar I was able to start some of the bolts, but the last two were so far out of alignment that I had to drill new holes. The cart is now assembled despite very poor instructions. It rolls nicely but sits a little crooked for the reasons stated. It is disappointing. It seems over priced given the lack of quality control.

Carelessly Manufactured, Terrible Directions
Aug 30, 2020
Buyers should be warned that without the proper tools this cart will be difficult, if not impossible, to assemble. In the process of assembly I used a drill with a 5/16 bit, a ratchet wrench, an adjustable wrench, a hex wrench and a trigger bar clamp. Why so many tools for bolting together a 4-piece aluminum frame? Because the holes of the legs and handle sections didn't line up properly. I used the clamp to hold 2 sections in place while I drilled out the holes. Then I used my ratchet wrench on the nut and my adjustable wrench on the bolt to tighten them. While I could easily guess as to where to use the washers (no mention in the directions) I could imagine some folks scratching their heads at the cryptic directions and fuzzy illustrations. The final line for assembly is "pound on 'axcle' cap" which may have been designed to physically relieve stress but unfortunately the caps easily slide into place to be tightened with a hex wrench neither mentioned nor provided by the manufacturer. Yes, I had a set. The welds on the frame look slapdash, hopefully they will hold up under stress. The tires look solid and sturdy. I am looking forward to moving lots of firewood over both smooth and rough terrain. I will update if allowed.

Got this for my husband but I found it is easy to haul in wood using this that I take my turn too. We had been using the bag from Lehmans to haul on wood, I could only carry a couple of sticks and my husband could load the whole bag but at our ages it was becoming a struggle. With the cart either of us can haul in twice as much as the bag holds with 1/2 the effort, even up the porch steps.

LOVE this cart, very sturdy and well made, goes up steps easily, saves countless trips out to the wood pile. got just in time for coldfront temps down in twenties here in the south. holds 5 or 6 armfuls, large sturdy wheels roll up the steps easily, park it beside the fireplace, looks nice, lasts all day. all the parts needed were included, bolts proper length, instructions included, went together very easily. cheaper poorly made knockoffs on other website, this one's built to last, def money well spent. thank you for making this product.

I bought the cart a year before I actually used it because we are only at our cabin part of the year. The cart was easy to put together in the beginning, but the last few screws were hard because the holes didn't line up very well. I had to have our construction crew finish assembling it for me. The cart is light weight and fairly sturdy. With all the construction we have going on, we had to move the wood pile down hill, far away from the house. Originally I was using a wheelbarrow to move wood up the driveway, then I would throw the wood up the stairs, then pick it up again and stack it near the back door. I finally decided to try the cart, not thinking it would make much difference, because I'm not that strong. I loaded the wood 1/2 way because the ground was slushy, uneven, and there were areas of deep gravel I had to pull it through. The cart was well balanced and not difficult at all. Much easier than the wheelbarrow. I decided to try going up the stairs, and to my surprise it was really easy! I decided to keep going right into the back door, down the hall, through the kitchen, all the way to the wood stove. When I unloaded all the wood, I was surprised at how much wood there actually was! It would have taken me at least 5 arm-load trips without the cart. I am pleasantly surprised at how amazing the cart worked and look forward to using it again tomorrow!
Amish Wood Cart

A well thought out, simple machine for hauling in firewood; light weight and easy to use. Unfortunately, the physical execution of the design was lacking. Specifically. the supplied eight (8) cap screws were only two inches long. That is also the exact width of the two square stock pieces that must be bolted together. Ergo, not enough cap screw protrudes to properly catch the the lock nuts. Thus, a trip to the hardware store to purchase 2 1/2" long cap screws to use in place of the 2" supplied cap screws. In addition, one of the eight pre-drilled holes for the referenced cap screws was not aligned perfectly with its mating piece and required remediation. Would give it a 5 star, but considering the above 3 is possibly a bit generous.

Don't bother looking anywhere else.

The sturdiest, most well-made carrier I've seen anywhere. The oversized solid rubber wheels make it easy to maneuver. It's light and carries a huge amount of wood. We live at 8,000 feet and wood is our main heating source. It hauls a LOT of wood and takes a real beating again and again. Way worth the investment.
One of the best purchases we've made

This is one of the best purchases we've made in recent memory. This cart is well-designed, balanced, easy to use. It has changed "bringing in the wood" from a chore to something we look forward to. On top of all that it is well-made. It feels and looks durable. The size is well thought out and just right. We put it through its paces this past season. We heat with wood and the verdict is two thumbs way up! Thank you for offering this clever solution to moving wood easily.
