Bring a spare
Love that it carries a lot of weight and very affordable. First unit delivered had a bent part but return and replacement fairly easy. Assembly was fairly straight forward. I did put some SuperLube on the steering mechanism which made things turn a bit easier. Used it to move some bricks around and regularly to move firewood. Excels at that job though the wheel base is a bit narrow for very sharp turns. Only downside: the tires are of poor quality. Discovered that the tire was flat when I went to use it one day. Sigh, really could have used it for the job. The tire had just disintegrated and allowed the tube to burst while just sitting. Replacement of the one tire under warranty was reasonably painless though I had to wait a week for a new shipment to arrive. Inspecting the tires now fairly often and now see signs that another tire is showing signs of failure on the sidewalls. If not for the tires failing without warning while just sitting around, would be worth 4-5 stars.

Bought this wagon to use at the beach, to haul the canopy, cooler, chairs etc. from the parking area, across the soft sand to whatever spot we can grab. The wagon has large tires that will roll easily in the sand, and it has a large bed area that will handle the cooler and canopy easily. I am going to fabricate a chair rack to use with it. The wagon assembled easily, and it will also store well with the sides folded down. I am sure I will find other uses for the wagon, but I am sure it will fit the bill for the beach duty, which was the reason for the purchase.

I added a 50 gallon water tank to this wagon which equals 400 pounds of water. No problem at all, still easy to move. I like it and would buy another one if I needed to.

Red Wagon HD
I made a boxed crate 32'x32'x32' and I placed it on the wagon with the sides removed. I use the plywood box to store all of my pickup parts from the time I completely took my 1975 Ford pickup apart. I have a lot of parts, including a few coffee cans full of nuts and bolts. All of it must weigh 600 pounds.
Now I can move it from place to place with ease. It is no longer a pile of parts that I must work and clean around.
When I'm done with using it for an old pickup parts wagon, I'll; use it for hauling my 9 cylinder radial engine from place to place. or my 1,000lb lathe..

I just bought this wagon 2 months ago and the handle is already falling off where they welded it on. I use it to carry my mower, weed wacker, blower, rake, bags and gasoline and its already half way off. I just think they would care about the welding a bit more

Jumbo wagon 48x24 inches
This is a good solid wagon with sides that can be hinged down to open it up or to make loading easier. It can carry more load than I can pull. It is priced competitively and I looked elsewhere but did not find as much cart for my money as this one.
It has nice big pneumatic tires that make is possible to pull this on sand and grass without getting stuck or bogged down. Most of my use is on sand, so this is important to me.
I have bought two of these wagons from Northern Tool + Equipment.
My only complaint is that the assembly of my first wagon was difficult. Now that I have learned that is is easier to substitute a longer bolt for the front wheel assembly (see photo), I can do it much faster and easier. I could not get the nut started on the swivel bolt underneath until I substituted a slightly longer bolt. I had to do this on both wagons. On the second wagon, I had to ream out one washer for the wheel assembly. Better parts for these two steps would make it easier.
All in all, it is a good buy on a useful piece of equipment that does not require fuel to move things around.

Love My Wagon!
Easy to assemble, looks great, and it is the perfect size for what I needed. Nice high side let you haul 5 gallon buckets. Big, yet narrow enough to fit through the door to haul my groceries from the truck to the kitchen. Turns easily and has a nice long handle. My only complaint would be that the cotter pins tend to fall out. Lost one already, and had to zip tie the others.

Wheels/Tires need improvement
I've used this cart for one season to move firewood near to the house during the winter. Recently went to move some wood and noticed a flat tire. This cart has never seen any surface other than my back lawn. The tube was shot so I ordered a new one. Went to install it and noticed a lot of daylight through the tires. Ordered flat-free replacements (didn't see the review where it mentioned not fitting on this cart, my mistake). Ordered bearings to reduce bore to 5/8" from 3/4" as supplied. Hub was too wide so I had to buy locally bearings with no flange on the outside of hub, driving them down into the bore to reach threaded portion of the shaft so as to get the nut on. Seems to be OK. Sure wish this cart came with flat-free from the start. The original tires are just nothing but junk and will need replacing in a short time. The rest of the cart is awesome though!
