Broke out the water wagon today! HPIM2153.JPG 35 gallons, lift it with the sleeve hitch when empty, wheels carry most of the load when full. Use it to water trees, shrubs & flowers around the yard. Hadn't needed it for a couple of years, but with more than a week without rain & 100 degree temps, need it this year! ~~ grnspot

That's a Very Cool Water Cart.....Amazing how Heavy water is : 8.32 LBS. Per Gallon!!
35 galllons @ 8 lbs a gallon = 280 Lbs of DEAD WEIGHT.... Do you have a pump hooked up to it? I'll have to steal that idea and make one asap, my whole place is drying up here. No rain in over 3 weeks and 100 degree temps have put a strain on my shallow well & so I've had to make water runs just to keep my veggie garden going. Brought home over TWO TONS of water so far this month!!! Here's a quick look at how I do it with My Wife's Input!

I have a 12V bilge pump that I can use if needed, also have a 12V rigged to pump from the pond at the farm when I need it.

Just use gravity to unload here at the house! ~~ grnspot
