Cha-ching...

Driving back from lunch out with the wife, saw this 10 CF steel Craftsman cart at the curb out of the corner of my eye. Wasn't far from home so I made a mental note and continued on.

Dropped off the wife, hopped in our Vibe and went back and picked it up (free). It fit in the back like the Vibe was designed for trashpicking Craftsman garden carts.

The PO was even nice enough to help me load it. He said there was nothing wrong with it (close enough) and that he got a new one, so kicked this one to the curb.

Had one flat (just needed air - fine now) and missing rear panel, small bracket and some bolts. I can live with that. I'll fix it up this winter; maybe strip, clean, and repaint also.

Wheel hubs even have grease zerks! Looks like they were added by the buyer.

It's not a dumper, but hey, trashpickers can't be choosers.

Anyone have this cart and can tell me whether the missing panel was fixed or movable? A picture would be great, would help me fab something up.

Replace the tailgate with a piece of plywood. It works. Not hinged, slides into the runners.
Easy to make a dump cart out if it. Check the Sears website for their dumping cart, then look at the instruction book. Only need 3 brackets that can be made in the garage. Uses the same axle, wheels, body, and pull beam.

Thanks. Yeah, the plywood idea occurred to me. Problem is the runner brackets are missing so I'd have to fab those up too. Oh well, something to do. Good idea on getting dump designs from the instruction book.
