She was right the current Radio Flyer is a POS too...and made in China
We use these big heavy duty Garlock wagons at work. They are pretty expensive $600 or so, but they will handle 2,000# load or more
We have some that are 7 years old and they get abused on a daily basis. They are no light weight, they weigh around 190# empty
What is cool about them is that they can be hitched together and pulled like a train. We had one monster project that we were using a small landscaper sized Kubota tractor on the roof and could pull 4 or 5 of them hooked together.
Also when you drop the handle it acts as a brake. BTW just for reference these are called the "Little Giant" carts, the frame is roughly 30" X 60". We also buy the foam filled tires upgrade...no flats!
Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(
