I have two carts, one is one of those 'kit carts' where you supply 
the plywood frame and the wheels, handle, etc are supplied by the 
company. It's a wide flat cart with large wheels. One of the wheels 
finally lost (split or rotted) the rubber off of it after about 20 years of 
service. I do occasionally have to replace one of the plywood 
boards though.
I like it because it isn't tippy, can hold a lot of (whatever you're 
hauling), and the bigger wheels make it a snap to roll over any 
I also have a small plastic deep cart, useful for different things but 
not as overall functional. Smaller wheels, lightweight, and smaller 
carrying capacity. The good thing about this is that it's light enough 
that if I haul stable cleanings to the compost, I can just flip it and 
it's emptied. The bigger one is more awkward to empty like that. 

Troybilt: We just bought a tiller this year but Lowe's carries them 
now. Maybe they're going under a different name or have been 
bought out by some company that can supply the chain stores 
easier than primarily mail order like Troybilt has been in the past?
