I saw a thread on these uniquely styled JD carts earlier this year on this forum. If anyone is looking for one, I spotted one on CL (that is my only association with it -- I don't know the seller or anything). $300 sounds steep to me, but then I'm not an actual collector so maybe it's a deal for someone looking for it. (?)

One thing I look for in any tow cart is "dump-ability". My JD 10 cart missed the mark by about 4"-6" in bed height and 15º-20º dump angle and won't dump anything completely out but absolutely powder dry materials (and that with vigorous forward pedal application). The wheelbarrow body looks way worse for heavy dirt/rocks/compost as everything is going to sit on that long flat area...

When stuff slows down here in the Fall I'm adding higher wheels to my 10 cart so the body WILL make a clean dump. The less trips off the seat the better since the seat is wearing out and cracking already ('04, kept inside).
