I bought this yesterday while picking up the wet/dry vac :) and it holds a lot more than 4 lbs. Last night we were racing the kids around the yard in it with no problems. Their weight combined is 100 lbs. Seems like it could withstand some abuse.

I bought this Cart at Home Depot Yesterday and used it last night and this Morning to Haul Bags of Potting Soil and Plants around the Yard, that is what it was made for, I believe it would be great for Yard Waste, such as Sticks and Leave too. I notice the Wheels are Cheap Hard Plastic, but the Cart is a very Durable Abs type Plastic. I figure if a Wheel Blows out I can put a New Axle and Wheels on from Harbor Freight for approx 10 Bucks and still be way ahead on the Money. Other Uses are Beach and Camping and Fishing off a Pier to haul your Gear, even has Holes for the Poles/ Garden Tools. This is a good deal, I may stop and get another one today before they run out as it is Heavy Advertised for Home Depots "Black Friday" Sale Today-Sunday. They also have Most Garden Vegetable Plants and Flowers on Half Price this Weekend! I stocked up on Plants, and Almost have them all planted.

I was excited for a minute... I bought one with the big bike wheels like that and IIRC it was over $100, but well worth it. Then I read these specs. Glad I didn't already share with my friends! Cheap looking plastic wheels - and FOUR pound capacity?!?

That has to be a typo - this one at Sears - http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_07180004000P - is slightly larger (4.5ft^3) but claims 250 lb capacity. But it is in at least two different places.

I need to dig out an area to lay patio stones. Besides that, I don't need a wheel barrow. For $20, if it lasts for this one job, it is well worth it. It is better than buying a decent one for triple the price, then having it take up space waiting for some other time that I might use it. I haven't needed one for the last ten years, so it could be a while.

@spentnickles If you go to the specs on the actual product page, it not only says 4 cubic feet, but also a 4lb load capacity.

@revolujon: It's probably more than that but I'm not sure of the actual capacity. I had one of these before and I used it to store some extra floor tile I had around the house. It couldn't handle the load and the whole thing fell apart and cracked.

I had one of these years ago. They kinda work but are not for a 6 foot tall person as I had to stoop to hold the handle while moving stuff. It will handle much more than 4 lbs. :/ I've moved it from one place to another filled with ice (water froze in it).

If you must, $20 isn't bad for a crappy wheelbarrow. But I cannot recommend.

I have an identical one. Bought it for $50ish a few years ago to haul retaining wall blocks. It held up to 3 I think and they're 48 lbs each. No issues with it so far.

I've owned one of these - same size, same wheels, same exact shape, but green colored - for ten years.

It can hold a lot of weight (bricks, gravel, concrete, water), but in terms of size, it's only good for one bag of push-mower clippings. That's about the size of a bale of pine straw or mulch. I've used bungee cord to hold 3 or 4 bales at a time on it though.

When not in use, this cart has resided behind the patio and outside in the elements for all ten years and it's still going strong.

ETA: Now that I actually look at the HD page, it's the same logo on the side of mine too. I'm 6 foot 2 and quite happy with it.

Just used this today. Hold way more than 4lb. Able to load 70% capacity with rocks and dirt and move it around no problem. Didn't move it very far mind you, but it did the job we needed it to do today and it's about the same price as a wheelbarrow rental, but you get to keep it.

Here's the description from the Ames website:
http://www.ames.com/products/detail.aspx?ProductId=1077&SubFamilyId=41&FamilyId=40&LineId=39

No mention of load weight, only cu ft. However, their 3 cu ft cart boasts a 200 lb loading capacity.

Bought one of these for mucking stalls. IT's not durable for that. IT's pretty light duty and the plastic falls apart after a couple of years even if you don't load it heavily.

But $20 is about half the regular price and if you just want a cheap, light-duty wheelbarrow for a while, this is a good price. The wheels-all-around are really handy.

I had one of these for years, and actually just had mine bite the dust at the end of last summer. Worked great for me. I hauled around rocks and sod as well as used for various gardening duties. One thing I like about these is that the four wheels allows you to just push it without lifting it (YMMV depending on load).

Mine had to of lasted at least 7 years. Well worth it for me, and I'll be grabbing a new one!

Picked up this at my local HD store. Seems pretty well built and especially for the price. It was available in the store for the same price but I wouldn't have known about it otherwise.
Thanks. The boss is thrilled with it, she has bitched about the wheel barrow forever.

I bought the cart today. The cashier said that they sold a bunch. The kids had fun using it as a shopping cart in the store. Glad it was posted otherwise I wouldn't have known.

WHOPPING 4lb capacity! I can't carry a new born baby in this thing!? ....uh, not that that is what i usually do in the yard...

Well, ok, I stand corrected...Thanks, jannad13... I apologize to those offended...and point my irritation @ the HD ppl.

I didn't bother reading through all of the comments because I can see that it's pointless... Really people, a 4lb capacity?? It says 4 CUBIC FEET! Not 4 "POUND" capacity. The "POUND" rating is 250 - the "VOLUME" of stuff you can put it in is 4 "CUBIC FEET" - two totally different measurements. But, maybe if you don't understand the difference, you shouldn't be buying this in the first place, cause chances are you're not smart enough to use it.

Why are some of you beating up on spentnickles' comment? I agree, with all the other info if you can't figure out that the "4 lbs" is a typo, you shouldn't be operating something with wheels!
