Worx aerocart review electricity and magnetism online games


I am also the happy owner of two other WORX products, the WORX battery-powered trimmer/edger and the WORX 56V battery cordless mower. I like the WORX company, which creates low-noise, zero-emissions products. They also put an emphasis on no-hassle product design.

In four months during the 2015 growing season, I found opportunities to use Worx Aerocart most frequently as a wheelbarrow, yard cart, rock/plant mover, and dolly. Since I don’t have a trailer to tote, I have no experience with the trailer-tote feature, but WORX literature says it can be used to move boat, motorcycle or other trailers around the yard and driveway. Weight, Size, Capacity

Aerocart is made of powder-coated steel. It has a wheelbarrow weight capacity of 300 pounds, with a volume capacity of about three cubic feet (about one and one-half large bags of mulch, for comparison). It has two dolly arms—one with a depth of 5 inches that can hold up to 300 pounds. The extended dolly is 24 inches deep, but has only 80 pound capacity. Assembly

The accessories were not were immediately familiar. This part of the assembly was not intuitive, but I used the well-designed pictorial assembly guide to add the other parts—a barrel stabilizer, a bag holder, and the dolly platform and the dolly extension.

• Maintenance: I don’t know of any maintenance the product requires other than keeping it out of the weather when not in use. My cart retained its like-new appearance in the four months I’ve been using it, but I keep it in a shed. It’s important to add, however, that I spoke with another Aerocart owner who had this story to tell:

“The parts rusted within 5-6 months (then again, I left it outside so I guess that’s not unexpected). The problem is that the attachments now don’t attach due to the rust and I can’t let down the part on front to use it as a dolly. So it either needs to be consistently stored indoors (if you have space) or the attachments become useless over time.”

I have mixed feelings about AeroCart. On the one hand, I have used it successfully for a variety of tasks. On the other hand, I wonder if I would purchase it at the current price of around $150 (with a three-year warranty and a 60-day money-back guarantee) if given the choice of a $250 large-capacity yard cart such as I have owned for years.

Editor’s Note– The WORX Aerocart is probably best thought of as a small, narrow, lightweight wheelbarrow that does a few other things but isn’t primarily used for anything other than hauling. I use mine nearly every day in my small garden which has very narrow paths that can’t accommodate a full-sized wheelbarrow. The design also makes it easier to lift a full load, making it ideal for people who may not have the strength to maneuver a regular wheelbarrow. Where to Buy
