So I fell asleep with the TV on last week. I woke up in the wee hours to an infomercial on a tricked-out wheelbarrow called the Aerocart. Looking past the marketing, does anyone own one...or has anyone actually seen one in person? Thoughts on usefullness, ruggedness, longevity?

Of particular interest/concern are the potted plant & rock mover arms...the 80 lb capacity sounds flimsy. I have some pots alone that would take up most of that let alone adding gravel, soil, plant.
Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly, and pleasantly scented plants.

The Worx Areocart is not at all flimsy in fact it has plenty of weight to it. We have one that we got last year, have not had a need to use the arms yet. I have used it to move big bags of soil six at a time, also to move firewood. We like that it stands sturdy with two wheels that balance out the weight of the load making it easy for a woman to use, it is not tipsy like a wheelbarrow.

We do have other Worx products and find them reliable and well made. The cordless 24 volt weedwhip and leaf blower plus the attachment to blow leaves out of the gutters no need to use a ladder making it much safer.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
