One feature that is unique and useful is the bag holder. You can easily turn your cart into a bag holder, put a bag inside and do different work around the yard. Like when you are collecting materials for your compost bit or just dry leaves, this feature comes in very handily
Till now you only read about how perfect the Aerocart is. Before you decide to buy one, read through the drawbacks as well. Obviously, it might not apply all to you but, some of the drawbacks can’t be ignored.
- The basic dolly is would the most commonly used around the garden. But the biggest drawback of the Aerocart that everyone will agree is the cart size. The cart is made narrow for better accessibility but, as a result, the size and depth of the cart reduces. It is much less than an average garden cart and makes it very difficult as many yard items don’t fit in. To compensate for that, Aerocart is designed in such a way that it is made a bit lengthier than most other wheelbarrows. But, the length of the cart makes it hard to turn around corners.
- Aerocart is built in such a way that it is versatile and can be used in many different tasks. They designed different parts that can be attached to the basic cart for multiple functions. But the mesh and the bungee cord is not strong to hold heavy items. When a heavy pot is kept on the mesh, it tends to sag and makes work overall uncomfortable.
- The Aerocart is quite small. Therefore it becomes a bit of an uncomfortable task for a tall person to work with it as you constantly have to slouch when you work. Also their most praised feature, the flat-free tires are not as perfect as you might think. Since they are solid, it is not easy to move around on a hard surface. It is also very heavy as most of the cart is made of metal. So moving furniture can be a taxing job. You might want to rethink about taking your Aerocart up the stairs to move your furniture around as. Moving your furniture itself would be of equal work.
Overall, it can be said that Aerocart is versatile and sturdy but not suitable for major garden projects. It has many different features but they advertise it in a very lucrative way. All the parts and factions might not be as useful and functional as they show.
There is obviously space for improvements as most people complained about the depth and capacity of the cart. The mesh also needs some work. Plus many consumers have shown enough concern about the warranty as it is full of exclusions. If a consumer is paying so much they would have high expectations, especially after watching the commercial that they run in a loop on the TV.
Because if it’s drawbacks, we should not disregard that Aerospace is quite useful and handy. So should you buy an Aerocart? Well, if your garden doesn’t need a big cart but one that is stable and easy to manage, Aerocart might be the perfect cart for you!
