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.

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.
