This cart is a must have tool in my garden. It is another 'back-saver' when it comes to lifting and hauling. It is especially good for transporting vegetables from the gardens for cleaning, processing and storage. I've had it around for probably 10+ years; it holds about one or two bushels, and can be used for a number of other jobs outside the garden. It is made of a tough fiber/polymer and has held up nicely with all its service. These pictures illustrate some if its uses.

Hi JP,
I've had this so long that I can't remember exactly where I bought it. I think it was from our True Value hardware store here locally. We are still using it as of 2016 for any number of jobs. As you can see in this picture it is a little "banged up" but very much usable.

Here is a link to their on-line web page with their current listing of some carts. But I do not see one like mine.

I am editing this post to add the following:
@jimmiemcca A warm welcome to ATP; I see you are a new member here. So please make yourself at home and be at ease. You will find this site above and beyond in quality, friendliness and helpfulness.
Again, a very warm welcome!
