recommendations for garden carts that turn and you can sit on

grevay(z4ME)November 27, 2013

I am in my sixties and find bending over to garden quite challenging on my back and knees. Any recommendations for garden carts that one can sit on, as well as have storage areas for plants and tools? If it pivots, that would be even better but not a necessity.

I knew someone who had one of these, the sides fold down for ease of loading and unloading or sitting down. This link is from HD, but I've seen them at Lowe's, TSC, etc. The basic style comes in various configurations.

Good luck,

I have one that I bought primarily to haul firewood. One of the front wheel hubs fell apart after a couple of months of use. I bought a new wheel/tire assembly and use it for light stuff and it does fine. Although its rated for 1,000 pounds, 100 pounds is probably all the wheels can handle.

Hello grevay,

I have a tractor scoot that I pull with me every time I garden. The pulling handle can also be locked up so that you can use it to steer with while you are "scooting". The plastic "tubtrugs" are handy (you might want to get more than one) and they also have a 5-gallon plastic bucket that fits in the carrier. I frequently interchange my tubtrug with the bucket, depending on the task at hand.

Several companies have something that looks like this and costs a bit less, but the seat on the one from Gardener's Supply can adjust lower than the competition, which I find saves my back when I am placing seeds or pulling weeds very close to little seedlings.

In my opinion, this one is worth the extra cost. I adjust the seat height for maximum comfort on my back for whatever task I am doing. As a "senior citizen", I do as much of my gardening from the seated position as I can.
