Folding Dura Cart
I purchased this folding wheel barrow for my horse trailer to take to shows, etc. I was not impressed by the quality of the cart. It seemed like it would not be very durable for the long-term. However, for the price...you get what you pay for. I still did not think the price was low enough for it to be worth it to keep. I also found it a little bit awkward as far as actually wheeling it. The back legs that it sits on when unfolded are quite long and get in the way while wheeling. It didn't fold up quite as compactly as I had hoped for my trailer. It is flat but wide and the handle bars stick out when it is folded. Overall it wasn't worth it for me to keep it and I returned it.

Awesome Little Cart
I bought this cart 5 years ago for my week of showing at our county fair. The thing has gone through every type of weather imaginable and it's come in handy at shows. I've used it not only for mucking stalls, but for moving tack and equipment from my trailer to the barn and back. Other than a flat tire occasionally, it's held up extremely well.

Folding Dura Cart
Easy to use as it is lightweight. Very convenient in multistall barn. Like that it will fold up. Glad we don't have to push a heavy wheelbarrow through the mud and snow anymore.

I like my cart but I have problems utilizing it in the grass. The back legs seem too long for the wheel barrow when you are utilizing it. I was thinking about cutting the legs off about one inch to see if that helped or replacing the wheel with one which is bigger.

I just wanted to say thank you to SmartPak and the company that manufacters this little cart. When I recieved it in the mail the tube to the tire had a small tear in it. Not only did SmartPak replace the tube but the manufacter sent me a whole new tire! Talk about great customer service! Also, the Dura Cart is wonderful, it is large anough to clean a stall, small anough to fold and put into the front tack room of my trailer, and sturdy anough to carry gardening supplies around my house. Great all around cart! I would highly recommend one.

for the price, outstanding
This is an amazing cart that you can use endlessly at a horse show. The size is pretty decent, enough to muck out a stall for a 12 hour period of use. Just remember when you empty it at the show muck pile to not lean on it like it's a solid cart. Oops :) The draw backs are only reflected in the price. The tarp like material that makes up the body wasn't 100% sewn together on mine. That one corner *might* fray over time, but at this price I'm really NOT complaining. I suspect I got a defect, but again. At this price it's not even worth complaining. Putting it together was easy. I'm still not sure how the handle bars are supposed to go (tilted in or out). The photo here is better than the diagram that comes with it. Makes me think it they flare outward, which makes sense for support purposes. I put mine together with it curving inward and it works just fine.
