Moving heavy stuff is so much easier if you have a handy helper. It’s one of those items that, until you own one, you won’t realize how much it would help. And then, when you have a perfect garden helper, it suddenly becomes indispensable. Your little red wagon has suddenly grown up – and you need it all the time.

For most back problems, light activity helps speed the healing process. Lifting heavy or awkward weights can injure your back. Keeping active with light exercise promotes healing, but if you need to move heavy objects, get help.

We recently reviewed motorized wheelbarrows in which we checked out the SuperHandy Utility Service Cart. Well, these nine carts are not motorized, but you can hitch some of them to a quad or ride-on mower. They are an easy way to save hurting your back and get garden work done even faster – and with less effort.

I have arranged them from a gardener’s perspective, ascending to the best three, in our opinion. Coincidentally, the top three are from the same brand – blame the opinion of others and a good product for that. The Amazon reviews number is the percentage of reviewers that awarded the product a 4-star or 5-star rating.

YardSam heavy-duty steel garden cart with 10-inch pneumatic tires make moving large objects such as wood, fertilizer, gardening equipment, flower pots, and generators easy and convenient.

The YardSam is made of powder-coated steel frame and steel mesh for durability. It is strong enough to haul up to 400-pounds of rocks, dirt, mulch, and more. The straight handle has a 180-degree turn capability.

The front wheels pivot to provide maneuverability around your yard. The removable sides allow you to carry large loads with some overlap. YardSam has remedied a common problem – wheel valve damage. By changing the design of their cart’s wheels, the valve is less likely to be damaged by rocks and protruding branches.

They have also replaced the traditional foam handles with frosted glued handles, solving the peeling problem often experienced with foam handles. The frosted glue handle is anti-slip, long-lasting, and more appealing. The improved chassis and general assembly are more rugged. They have focussed on addressing assembly challenges faced by many cart manufacturers (and users).

YardSam prides itself on meticulous quality. The YardSam is one of the few metal carts that come with a liner as standard, allowing you to load sand and other less solid materials.

The product comes with a standard 1-year Limited Warranty.
