    dang- wish I was closer I would buy some of those as I'm about to make something similar.

    You can cut a hole in the top deck for the gas tank but lifting the tank up 24" might be a pain but they'll last a long time fo' sho.

    Roger that! I am on it. Like i said to brocolli I thought they seemed nice for 85 bucks and looked like it would work as a descent cart, not to mention to have an extra to move heavy stuff around.

    You woudnt know what one of them wieghs do you?

    My concern is how i would get them in my truck? I might have to rent a dam trailer so i dont have to get them lifted as high.

    They're 40" long- stand them on end and then lift it up on to the tailgate

I will give him a call tomorrow. I knew i should have just got two of them. I wasnt sure but It seemed like a nice cart. That top plate looks pretty thick.

    The shelves are sheet metal bent down but they are still substantial carts

    The CL ad has a link to the carts specs

    Looks to be about 150-200lbs

    I agree with above, no problem getting in truck. You are only lifting one end while the other will be against the tailgate. while lifting just hold against tailgate and once you get it tilted so far slide in. I would try to offer 150.00 for two.
    Ask seller if he has any steel laying around too. Maybe see if he has some damaged ones you can salvage and rework. TAKE LOTS OF CASH!!!! CASH !!!
    GOOD shopping and dealing !

    Ya 200lbs aint bad. I will offer $150 for two thats what I was thinking. Hopefully he does have some other weldable stuff laying around.


    I saw them had to be about 2 weeks or so ago I was actually looking for metal to weld.

    That ad should have been up for a while now too. So hopefully he will take $75 a piece. I would definitly like to have 2 of them.


    You think if he stays firm at $85 a piece still worth getting 2?

    YES ! Do you have any metal storage areas ??? A cart on WHEELS would be awesome for short pieces, buckets, milk crates, etc. You could even use one for a chop saw table. Use one for a cart and add steel to the other for the table. Definitely will make storage for organizing tools, grinders, clamps, etc. You can never have enough. A cart on wheels has many uses. It'sonly money. When's the wife's birthday ? Great gift. I never deprive my wife of anything I WANT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
