On the weekend I went to PA to buy one of these, so that I could move sticks, bags of soil, rocks etc at the cottage. At the time they were listed at $299.99, but was pleasantly surprised to find the skid and tags said $199.99.

Checked online today and found the website shows this sale price too. That's the cheapest price I've found for what seems to be one of their top of the line utility carts.

Nice features are that the wheels are big, the sides can be removed for use as a flat bed (great for heavy loads you don't want to heft over the sides), and the handle can be used to tow it from e.g. and ATV or rider mower.

I really wasn’t looking for a dump cart, hefting heavy things in would be harder than one where you can drop the sides, like moving logs. Having said that, you could definitely do different things with the dump cart. You can’t move dirt with the one I bought.

Based on your OP I found the one the second poster mentioned. I was about to pull the trigger on the Red Rock dump cart that is on sale for $199 but for $30 more the Gorilla dump cart looks much better.

I'll need to haul light debris, sand, soil and gravel as well as wood and larger items. Being able to dump it will be important.

I bought a smaller 600lb gorillacarts dump cart a few months ago and its been tremendously helpfull with everything around the yard, ive filled it with logs and gravel and even 30 25L bags of soil and it moved and manouvered just fine. The larger carts can also be attached to a lawn tractor or atv and towed. My only complaint is with the dumping, to get 100% of the contents out you need to almost lift the cart off the ground even with the >90° dump feature.

This is the one to get, people! I've had it for years and it's a total workhorse! My advice is to ditch the pneumatic tires as soon as they worn/cracked/broken, which ever comes first, and get their heavy duty plastic ones or whatever they're made of; they're WAY better! It's so easy to dump too, you just pull the handle and lift then everything falls out without it flipping on you!

The design with no cross support on the wheels makes ya really wonder about actually somehow loading those kind of weights in it and moving it...

Agreed, although the frame on the dump cart looks quite sturdy, much sturdier than the OPs cart. BUt the first cart likely utilizes the flat bed for strength. Of course, I've NEVER been accused of having knowledge about geometry,strength,physics etc.

Even though im trying hard not to make wild purchases while looking on RFD, I wish i had tons of heavy stuff to move around my 1 acre yard.... what are people moving with this? Also, unless you have a garden tractor or ATV, HOW are people moving this with huge capacity?

It actually moves around by hand. I've pulled loads of soil and stone around in it by hand. That said, using the lawn tractor makes it a lot easier.

Picked up my in-store pickup order for the 1,500 dump cart on Thursday, assembled Friday and worked with it yesterday. What a treat to work with.

Assembly was easy except for the mosquitoes!

Piled it high with ground debris, rocks, pine needles, roots, decay and was easy to manually maneuver and dump. Also piled it high and heavy with log sections and was also easy to manually manouver. Saved a tone of effort. Would never go back to using a wheelbarrow for tasks like that as this thing takes way more load and is easier even with 3 or 4 times the load.

Very happy with it.

I have a couple of V8 engines I need to move across the lawn to the back shed. Maybe I could set them into one of these carts to get them there. Smiling Face With Open Mouth

I can't see how the design of these carts supports 1500#

I think they expect no one will be able to stack on 1500lbs worth of product before they give up because the pile has gotten too tall or there's no more floor space.

Anyone receiving "free shipping"? Their system is estimating ~$70 for me (below the up to $100 amount), but the shipping charge is showing up @ $40 at check out.
No in-store pick up available in my area.

Would the 1,500 lb Heavy Duty Poly Dump Cart be more useful than a wheelbarrow for dumping soil on a yard to seed every year?

I also picked up the Worx Aerocart: https://www.lowes.ca/product/wheelbarro ... lsrc=aw.ds

Not sure which one is more useful/practical for the average suburban homeowner. Only two trees and 1500-2000 sqft of lawn.

We have this guy,Bought it 4 years ago and thing still going strong,Nice thing is that it has a handle to pull it or you can change the handle to a connection to hook to garden tractor and pull it as trailer wagon.

We have only greased the joints and nipples once and each year put air in the tires,The tires are dry rotting now but similar tires go on sale for $6 each so not too bad.
