A Guide To The Best Garden Trolley Carts

The multi-purpose garden trolley cart has many names including: Garden trolley, garden cart, garden wagon and dump cart.  However it probably has more uses than names it’s referred to as, it is commonly used for gardening, construction sites, camping, festivals, market/trade shows and even family days out!

Save your time, effort and even prevent potential injuries by investing in a garden trolley.  Its four wheels and front handle which is also used to steer makes transporting goods and equipment simple.  When you’re not using it, it can be stored away in a shed or big enough garden storage box.  For those without a garden or limited space then consider a collapsible garden trolley cart.

There are different types of garden trolley carts which are designed to be more suited for specific tasks.  For instance, a tipping cart is more suitable for transporting and unloading soil, cement, mulch, coal etc.  It’ll be a lot more time consuming if you had to unload those materials with a garden cart that’s not able to tip and dump the materials.


How To Choose The Best Garden Trolley Cart

Before you start selecting the best garden trolley cart, you’ll need to decide on what you’ll be using it for, that’ll already rule out unsuitable models.  Below are the features to take into account, which we’ll explain what to look out for.

Maximum load capacity – Total weight that can be loaded onto the trolley.  Some manufacturers will mention there’s also a maximum moving weight which is less than the maximum load capacity.  So to be on the safe side, try to go around 20% below the max capacity.

Tippers are better for unloading soil, cement, mulch, coal etc

Dump capacity – This would only apply to garden tipper trolley, some models will have a lower dump capacity than loading capacity.

Tipper – Whether the garden cart is able to tip the container to unload the contents easier.

Fold down sides – Usually only the heavy duty garden trolley carts will have the option of being able to fold the sides down.  Fold down sides makes it easier to load and unload items onto the cart.  Sides can also be left down if you’re transporting larger items that won’t fit with the sides up.

Material – Frame and container will be constructed from strong material to withstand heavy loads, however collapsible garden trolleys tend to have a weaker frame, hence why it has a lower max load.

Container dimensions – Check the container dimensions against certain items that’ll need to be transported on the cart.  If the item is too big then it won’t sit in the container properly and can risk falling out during transit, this is more important for fragile items.

Wheel type – Tyres can either be pneumatic or rubber, the former is filled with air and can handle uneven terrain better, however it’s also susceptible to punctures.

Whereas the latter can’t be punctured or deflated, but it doesn’t handle uneven terrain as well and the overall handling is not as smooth.  Unfortunately you can’t really choose what type of wheels you want, as the type of garden trolley cart you choose will already have a specific type of wheels.

Wheel diameter – Larger wheels are better for handling and uneven surfaces.


What Is The Best Trolley For Festivals

Trolley carts are commonly used for music festivals. It is used to transport your tent, sleeping bag, wellie boots, picnic basket set and other essentials.  Since you don’t need something that has a high load capacity, a folding festival trolley is perfect for festivals and it can be stored away when not in use, only taking minimal space.

Although most collapsible carts will be suitable for festivals, the Life Carver Garden Cart gets our number one vote on being the best trolley for festivals.  Here’s why:

  • Higher maximum load capacity than other folding festival trolleys. Gives you that extra bit of weight allowance which means it’ll be sturdier.
  • Has a pouch on the front of the cart to put smaller items such as your phone, camera, bottle of water etc.
  • Includes a bag to cover it when it’s not in use.
