I wonder if that one is homemade. I've never seen another one with that exact frame and latch construction.


I thought that myself, but different guys at the show thought it was factory built, so I don't know.

I'm leaning a bit to the homemade side too.
Not basing this on any knowledge of any kind.
Just a guess. :) Somebody sure did a nice job on it.
And you got a heck of a deal on it.

I'm actually just starting a conversion of a sturdy 2 wheel wheel barrow that we are not using. Got the tires off the rims and the rims stripped for painting and replacement of the bearings with 3/4" versus the 5/8" stock ones. I don't remember seeing these carts much before this year but there now seems to be a lot of interest in them lately. I'm hoping to use this project as a bit of welding practice.

Brian, I'm leaning towards homemade also. Welds just look like it. But a darn nice job. Thanks for the pics of it all. I might build one yet.

Ford had one like it too...and based on the color...I'd say it is probably the ford variation...

Man next to me had one he used for hauling wood.
It was black. Factory made, probably bought at a hardware store.
When I needed a cart I bought a Lambert at a hardware store.
Perhaps it's a Lambert.

Found this on the net hooked to a GT for sale, sent an Email to see if I can get some more photos of his to compare to mine. Cart isn't for sale but maybe the owner will help me out.

I think it's a Radio Steel cart. They made them for a lot of the gt manufacturers.
