FoldIt Cart?

Has anyone had long use experience with a FoldIt cart? I saw one on the dock today and it looks pretty nice. I'm curious if anyone has had one for a year or more and how it's held up.

Not cheap, but I'm willing to pay more for something that is reasonably better.

Re: FoldIt Cart?

We don’t have that brand but have had something similar for about four years and it has held up well. We use it weekly, hauling stuff to and from the boat and car. My wife has used it a few times for light yard work. And a few times we have Velcro-d the handle to the back of our electric bike and used it to haul groceries.

Re: FoldIt Cart?

I’ve had one for many years. My only complaint is it came with tube tires. I wish it had come with solid tires. It would be a little heavier but less tire maintenance needed.

Just went to the website. Looks like they have gone to foam filled tires. I’ll have to order a set.

Re: FoldIt Cart?

I wanted one, but was taken aback at the price.

One of the women on a long line fishing boat was using one and I asked her how she liked it. She said it's over 10 years old and is in constant use.

The thing that sold me was that she said she uses it to haul her catch, then hoses it down with a little bleach and uses it to carry her groceries. Her only complaint was that at 25 pounds or so, it wasn't easy to lift above her waist.

I like the fact that you can use chemicals on it. I currently have one of the nylon ones and I could never do that, also the nylon is fraying after about 1.5 years.

The next one will be an aluminum folding cart.
