Re: Folding dolly or luggage cart/dolly

After three months we're pretty happy with this one.


Holds quite a lot of groceries for the amount of space it takes up. Wheels are big enough for off-road but not sure how well they'd work in soft sand. Folds up nicely. For under $40 we have no real complaints.

I wish the handle were longer, but I usually tow it with one of the straps so I don't have to stoop over when walking. I have this problem with all of these type of things; seems as if they make them only for use by people under 5' tall.

test your carts in soft sand with a garafon of water ( 5 gallon , aka 20 liters bottle) plus groceries to understand desired performance......

Listen to Zee, she knows her stuff.

Still, where I generally go, the only places I can anchor near soft sand don't have any supermarkets withing walking distance

something about bumpy dirt/cobblestone roads and 100pounds of food and supplies.
I glue the pins in with Crazy Glue when I get them. I use mine hard and they last for about 8 months, then I get another with a warranty, so I get one free when it wears out. They cost about $23US plus a couple of dollars for the warranty.

I've never had a bottom break. They're rated for 80 pounds.

To each his own.

Re: Folding dolly or luggage cart/dolly

the lil cute box cart is not usable for those of us who carry 100 pounds home from stores.
garafones of water break the bottom out.
i lost 2 of these things which are not usable for beach landings.the wheels need to be larger and thing uilt sturdier for proper cruising. could be good for marina use, light duty.
