I have three and the best of them came from A.M.Leonard (; it was
also by far the most expensive.  I like the fact that you can completely
remove both ends of it to use it for hauling brush, long poles, etc.  

I have the smaller of the carts from Northern and hate it.  The leg brace
runs across the cart, and hits my heels when I pull the load.  Pulling is
easier than pushing so that is my mode of travel.  The larger of their carts
has a different design and may be alright.
