The five main categories
Garden carts are perfect for hauling flowers, shrubs, fertilizer, and other gardening materials around your yard. They can also carry firewood, gardening tools, and yard waste. Most are flat and made of wrought iron, but some are shaped like wheelbarrows and are made of a durable plastic. All garden carts have long tubular handles for easy lifting and pushing, and most have a center-mount wheel.
Tool carts are made to move and store almost any variety of tool. Most have four wheels and a series of ball-bearing drawers specially designed to house a large assortment of tools. A good tool cart will come with tumbler locks for added security, as well as toe brakes for greater stability.
Drywall carts are made to easily move drywall from place to another. Most have an hourglass design that allows the operator to quickly move into and around tight corners, as well as an open front end so that drywall can be loaded and unloaded without being damaged. An average-sized drywall cart will be able to hold anywhere from 16 to 24 sheets of drywall.
Storage carts are often used in kitchens or garages and commonly feature a large countertop, beneath which are several drawers for convenient storage of utensils and tools. Most have two handles for easy mobility and wheel locks to keep the cart in place when stationary. Some storage carts even have side rails that can be used as towel racks or as extra handles for better maneuverability.
Utility carts can be used for storage and service alike, particularly in restaurants, cafeterias, meeting rooms, or even home dining rooms. The countertop of the cart typically features organizer bins and cup holders, and beneath the countertop is either a large, flat storage area or several storage drawers that can hold food, utensils, or just about anything else you might need for food preparation or service. Some also come with insulated compartments for long-term food storage.
