Congratulations! Looks lit it fit really well in the back of your vehicle. I'm holding out for an 80 cart to replace the one I sold a few years ago. Haven't had much luck with one at a decent price.

It fit very well and easily into the back of 2004 Grand Cherokee.  I think a 10 would have also fit but not near as easily. 

 

I would love an 80 to go with the 120 and found a nice original unit here in town but is owned by the Public Power District and they won't sell it. :wallbanging:

Scuffed and installed bedliner. Looks good and will protect it when I use it.

So a bit of an update on the 7 

 

It sat empty over the winter on the tires and one went flat.  The lovely 2 ply Kenda tire will not hold air so I have tried to find tubes to put in them.  I have tried 3 12x4x6 tubes from Menards and two have blown out at the seam when I added air from my small Harbor Freight pancake compressor.  I need the wagon for yard projects and it seems that I am destined to not use it.  Any suggestions for tubes?  The tires are 4.00-6 Kendas.

Trav1s:

 

You probably have already done an extended search, but I found this link to Kenda tire tubes:

Also, have you tried "Northern Tool". Looks like they carry the tire, maybe the tube?

Thx Harlan,

 

I have played around with an internet search and was trying to buy local if I had problems with a tube.  I am a bit confused why a generic 4.00-6.0 tube would blow out.  I am going to give www.millertire.com a call on Monday and see what they have to say.  Talked to my dad after the first one blew out along the seam and he said the tube split because it was not cured long enough which.

 

I am done with cheap stuff made anywhere.

Called on the 3rd and they tubes arrived yesterday before lunch.  I think that is pretty good with a holiday in there.  The tubes from Miller were Firestone and worked great.  I got both tubes installed, tires mounted, and installed on the trailer in about 20 minutes them managed to use the cart around the yard.  The 7 is a better fit for my yard than the 10... which my dad has claimed for his own.  :rolling:

As much as I love the 10 cart, the 7 is a nice size that works good on my 1/3 acre lot in town.  During the last storm the 3 black walnut trees managed to shed some branches and nuts.  I collected a cart and a half of branches/nuts from around the back yard.  Fired up the Deere 51SV chain saw and cut up the large pieces.   Then I followed with the 120 and the 41 deck.

 

Sorry guys... no pics of today's work.
