Help me find this plastic garden cart/wheelbarrow

florascapes(z5 MA)August 16, 2003

I've just checked through numerous catalogs, websites and various forums and I'm still stumped.

A friend has this great flat ended (in the front)small wheelbarrow/cart. It sounds like some others I've seen but this one doesn't have huge tires (reg. or bicycyle). It fits in the back of her Subaru Legacy wagon like the one I just bought. Her mom bought it for her at the Christmas Tree shop or someplace like that for about $30. (I can afford to pay up to about $60). It carries about the same amount as a regular wheelbarrow but is much lower to the ground. I need the same thing. Can anyone suggest where I might find one? I've tried lots of hardware stores, specialty garden centers, A.M. Leonard, and Gardener's Supply catalogs just to name a few. Any help you can offer would be appreciated. Barbara

I found one at Home Depot, it is made by Scotts, plastic looks like a wheel barrel, but lower to the ground. The handle is adjustable and there is a brake that you can use to prvent it from rolling away. it cost $39.It is made for gardening and the name on it is Garden Pal or Buddy, I can look and get the model number for you. Just let me know if you need more information.

Thanks Diana,
I looked at that one at Home Depot and still found it too big to fit in my car. But they had a dark green boxier looking wagon that I chose instead and seems to be just the ticket. Thanks, Barbara

it is probably more expensive than what you were talking about above, but there is this wheelbarrow that has a lower front called a "smartcart" or maybe it is "smart cart".

Here is a link that might be useful: wheelbarrow
