The Garden Wagon Goes Hi-Tech
by Charlie Nardozzi
Fall is a time to clean up the garden, haul compost, and restock the firewood pile. A sturdy garden wagon is essential for these tasks. The new Ursa Wagon is a step up from a wheelbarrow or garden cart. It features four, 16-inch, solid rubber or pneumatic (depending on the model) tires, a rust-resistant anodized aluminum frame, and a heavy-duty plastic bed that wont crack even when exposed to -40 degree F temperatures. The bed can carry loads of up to 500 pounds, and can even be used to mix concrete.
You can pull the wagon by hand or attach it to a garden tractor and haul it like a trailer. The high ground clearance allows you to pull it over rocks and uneven terrain, and the front axle pivots 270 degrees, allowing for turns in tight places.
