Northern Industrial Tools Log Cart - 220-Lb. Capacity
Very handy cart
Most reviews I read said that it was very easy to assemble. Either I got the wrong size screws or I was doing something wrong. I actually had to go to the hardware store and get longer screws to fit through the bars. Once I did that I was able to assemble it. As for use, it works well for me. I take it in the woods to haul logs out of the woods and it works great. Also use at home to move wood from where I split to the shed. Very easy to use. Only problem is that if the wood is not cut long enough it falls through. I actually took a tarp and put around it to place the logs on so the small ones don't fall through.

This cart is great for hauling firewood over rough ground. The size specs are miss-leading. The specs that are noted as bin size are actually the overall size of the cart.

Had this 5 years, still going strong!
When I got this I was hoping that it would help with bringing in the wood. I was concerned about it going up stairs and how much wood it could carry at once, and would I, an average sized female of 5'6 be able to move it. Turns out it makes a LOT of wood very easy to move, and it is not only possible, but simple to get this up stairs. We've had this 5 years, and it is by far one of the best purchases I have ever made. It has totally changed brining in wood from a long and drawn out chore to a simple cart moving task that takes a few minutes.

8 yrs old and still going!
Bought this cart in 2005 when we moved to our home(old farmhouse) and over the years, we have used it almost every day between end of September and beginning of April plus for bringing in the firewood during the summer. This has been an absolutely wonderful "find" and has performed beyond well. I like to fill it pretty full and it has definitely stood the weight and pressure demands I have put it through. I was looking to order the replacement wheels as they are now fully shot and my wife suggested we buy a second one as well as the wheels since we use it so much! I couldn't believe she was the one that said those words. They have definitely gotten it right with this cart...the large wheels are extremely important for ease of steering around walls and furniture and the cart is just built very well. You know its good when my wife wants to have two of them :-)

This appears to be a good cart for the money. It went together easily and with little frustraion. The wheels are holding air after 2 weeks and appear large enough to handle the snow depth we receive here. It loads easily, tilts and wheels with no problem. My last cart had 20 inch wheels and eventually they warped out of true and then collapsed under load, these smaller wheels appear less likely to do that.

money well spent on wood management
Have had this cart for going on 10 years and wouldn't part with it.
larger wheels make it much easier to balance & go up stairs. Holds a generous, all night portion of wood. Two trips and I'm done bringing in wood for the day.
Why only 4 stars? The "dirt and bark catcher" in a word, doesn't. But hey, comes with territory, I guess. I'm going to put a bottom in it like another reviewer did, for that and the odd 1/2" too short logs that fall through. The wheels and the wheel base are narrow, so it can tip and get away from you if you"re not careful.
Also, I put a length of foam insulation on the handle for those february < 0 days

A real back saver.
I have a bad back and carrying boxes of firewood was no longer an option. With this cart I can load boxes on it directly from the wood pile without having to do much bending over. The large wheels make it easy to roll it up onto the porch and then into the house. The only problem is that the tires collect mud and dirt and then leave it on the floor in the house and I then have to clean that up. I am considering buying a second one so that I have one for the house that stays clean and one for outside. It is easy to move a box of firewood sideways from one to the other. One of the best "tools" I have purchased in a long time.

Learn with age
We heat our home with wood. This cart beats a hand truck all to heck .We have to move firewood over threshold, down steps then over next threshold then up steps, it is nice when I don't loose any logs or bang in to walls.Now even my wife will haul wood when necessarily. At our age a long needed and smart investment.

Handy and sturdy cart
Bought a couple of months ago, easy to assemble and works great. I have put as many pieces of wood as will fit and still is easy to move. I also modified with a plywood platform and use it to move other heavy items as well. Very happy with my purchase.

Excellent Log Cart
Bought this cart just before a minor surgery that would limit my ability to carry in firewood for a few weeks. The reviews seemed promising and overall I'm very pleased. It was easy to assemble, does a great job over bumps and down a couple of small steps I have, and allows you to carry in a few loads of wood in each trip. Plus you can store wood in it near the stove. I wish I bought one long ago.
