Suggested retail of over 1000.00 dollars? Geez, i got get one, not. I cant see paying that kind of money for a pull behind dump cart.

Not saying that i don't agree it is a high price, but these carts are made out of heavier gauge steel than most of the stuff for sale new, are overengineered and beefy in all the right places, are rated to haul a half a ton (as much weight but not as much room as a lot of pickup trucks) and have the unique ability to rotate 180 degrees when dumping allowing them to be backed up and completely flipped over till the bed is upside down.

I got lucky and got mine with my first tractor purchase, but if I had to I would fork over a few hundred or more to find another one just like it I probably would.

There's no question that they are a nice cart but here's where I have a problem with them. You can go to Tractor Supply, Sears and Northern Tool and buy something brand new and similar for around $300.00.

Now, let's assume that Ingersoll uses steel that's one gauge heavier plus a couple more small improvements. How do you justify a price difference of $800.00? When you can THREE of those other carts for less than ONE Ingersoll cart, then I think that something just ain't right.

I bought a new cart/trailer from Horror Freight for $75. It is the same dimensions as the case cart and a lot cheaper. If it last 4 years then I got my moneys worth. Btw, horror freight and northern tool both have the SAME trailer and there is or was a $50 price differance

I agree they are priced very high for new, just like I couldn't afford a new tractor from Ingersoll, the key here is to always be on the lookout for a used example, just like most of us did for our tractors. At least now everyone has a good idea about the build quality and durability of the C/I cart. If you just can't do without a cart, buy something economical and new, if you have time to be patient, try to grab one of these used if you can.

I also think the sweeper is way overpriced but if a used one pops up for less than 2 or 3 hundred, I would not have a problem paying that much if it was in decent shape.

I've built several carts for my tractors and they are probably the easiest and cheapest project one could undertake. I built my first one about 25 years ago and it sits out in the rain and snow, never had a coat of paint and looks like crap yet every time I think I should just junk it I find it handy to keep around. I've used golf car wheels on all of them since I get used ones for free from the golf cart dealer down the road and they carry a big load without damaging the lawn. Initially I used a 3/4" axle but those would bend quite a bit when I really load up the trailer so I switched to regular trailer hubs and axle though no springs. My fancy trailers have hydraulic dump mechanisms as a concession to my advancing age and general laziness. I doubt that I have $200 in my fanciest dump trailer so I can't imagine spending big bucks for a pull behind wheelbarrow.

Apples and oranges guys and a couple of pears thrown in.

Jacks add Trailer is a newer IGGY Inside Pockets

Drews trailer is an older heavy Case Trailer Nice Outside pockets and thicker steel.

The rest of the models vary in quality and can be compared to the original post but There's no comparing that Case in Drews Photo to anything other than a J-80 from another brand .It will be alot more than 1K. :trink:

If I was hauling girls stuff the cheaper trailer would be fine. Yard Waste , but I would not be loading rocks in those 75 dollar carts.

If I had rocks to do I'd drive over and borrow my cousins 200 dollar one with the hyd lift.

I haul rocks around my property with a big metal saucer. Just like the plastic ones the kids use these days to go sledding. I dont have to pick the rock up and get it in the trailer and then roll it out. I just roll the rock onto the saucer and then pull it through the grass or dirt. No harm to the grass either. The cheap trailer I got is for hauling my kids around the yard and neighborhood and hauling small yard wasye into the woods.

And it would do the job with ease! I've had my small (3'x5') trailer loaded with at least 2,000 with no problems. The heaviest load was probably wet concrete.

That's why you need to add a loader to the stable.

Brad, where can I get a big metal saucer for my kids to sled on? I got big kids and they destroy the plastic stuff in a matter of hours. My 12 year old is 5'10" and 175 lbs, not fat just huge!!! I'd like to find a couple of those to last them until they are full grown. That is going to be enourmous I'm afraid.... :shock:

PM me so we don't hijack the thread.....

The CL seller is about 20 minutes from me. I did send an e-mail with low-ball offer for the cart yesterday and still no response. I will keep you posted.
