Craftsman 12.5 Cu. Ft. Poly Swivel Cart Tames the Big Jobs
The Craftsman 12.5 cu. ft. cart is roomy enough to clear a forest's worth of fall leaves and sturdy enough to haul a half-ton of rocks. With an easy-to-use spray-loaded hitch pin, it's a great accessory for any lawn or garden tractor or even an ATV. Releasing the load is as simple as pressing the ergonomic foot pedal. The bed then can tilt and swivel in a 105-degree radius, allowing plenty of leeway in cozy areas. No more straining to lift heavy landscaping materials to the right spot.
The Craftsman 12.5 cu. ft. poly swivel cart is built with a durable foam-poly bed supported on a sturdy, heavy-duty steel undercarriage that can handle up to 1,000 lbs. A scratch-resistant polycoat finish protects the frame from the elements. The cart's 16 in. turf tires protect the lawn as it rolls along.

Overall, others give this:
I bought this cart because I did not want a steel one that will rust after a year or two. I have loaded this cart up with tree branches, bricks & blocks, and many other items. I am pleased so far.
Upon opening this is a very nice cart, sturdy and strong. Assembly was not very difficult and did not take a whole lot of time. I have not used this yet so can not comment on how well it works yet.

5 weeks later, love it for hauling chainsaw equipment, trimmings, firewood, dirt and rocks around the property Seems very sturdy, I toss cut logs into it without worry of it cracking or breaking though I'd be a little careful with any 30+ lbs rocks. Works great with Craftsman TT2200 lawn tractor 19 hp 6" tight turn (# 38200) Relief set bolts, so that there are no bolt heads sticking up from the bottom where a shovel might contact. The quick release dump is nice, but I'm strong and just generally disconnect the cart then lift and direct dumping of refuse where needed. Though with a very heavy load, the quick release, swivel dump will really help. When assembling, use tape to hold the bolts in that go through the bottom of the cart barrel so you can turn the entire cart upside down to wrench on the securing nuts.
I purchased this cart to haul topsoil and am completely satisfied. Delivery to the store was earlier than promised. Assembly instructions are visual and simple to follow -- required less than 30 minutes with a socket wrench and mallet to slide the axle into place. Large wheels are much better quality than comparable carts ... and the box is very rugged. The dump and swivel features work as advertised and are totally necessary for topsoil. The hitch did not work well with my ATV over uneven terrain, but it was easy to install a standard 2 1/2" coupler. I haven't weighed the loads it has carried, but it handles a full load of topsoil easily. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased, especially when I read online reviews of other carts.
This cart is light weight and is to use. I like the swivel motion which makes dumping dirt or mulch easy. It's easy to hook up to riding tractor and is a breeze to clean.

Threw together by myself in about 1/2 hour. Could of used a helper to push the bolts through while lining up the metal carrier. Crank down about 12 nuts, push the axle through, slap on the wheels and haul some mulch. I chose this over the 12 cu ft metal option, as this one is much more solidly built and the tires are far superior... also although i'm not sure if I'll need it, but it has cutouts to place 2x4s or 1x3s to make higher sides or inside dividers. I'm satisfied. Still can't figure out why I have to order it online to save $20, rather then just getting the same price by walking into Sears. dumb
