Gorilla Carts GOR866D Heavy-Duty 2-In-1 Convertible Handle Review

Not to sound too amateurish, but the name Gorilla itself says a lot about the item I am going to write a review about. Gorilla is their brand name and it’s very much suitable for this wheelbarrow. The GOR866D is a single purpose hauler with a convertible handle. This handle gives it versatility and the user more options. Read my Gorilla Carts GOR866D Heavy-Duty Garden Poly Dump Cart with 2-In-1 Convertible Handle Review to find out the ins and outs of this product in great detail. So, here we go.

Easy Assembly

If you look at the picture, the GOR866D looks like a complicated item. The wheelbarrow comes in a box in pieces. You would need to assemble it by yourself. You can trust me when I say this: it is very easy to assemble.

The product comes with an instruction guide that has illustrated and detailed directions that help you set the whole thing up. You would only need a Phillips Screw Driver and two adjustable wrenches. With these simple tools, you can assemble the Gorilla Poly Wheelbarrow within half an hour or less!

No Maintenance Needed

The Gorilla Garden Cart is made of a high-strength poly with a heavy duty steel frame. The whole body has a black finish and so looks really sleek. The poly is durable against rain and the sun and against heavy loads.

The steel frame is powder coated and so it is rust resistant. This makes it an easy job to clean the cart. Plus, being immune to corrosion, the wheelbarrow does not ask for any maintenance. You can cut a significant price there.

13-Inch Tires Help Carry the Load

Tires constitute a major aspect of any wheelbarrow. In the case of the Gorilla Heavy Duty Garden Cart, two pairs of 13-inch pneumatic turf tires are used. The tires are made to run efficiently over any terrain.

The thing about pneumatic tires is that instead of the whole tire, an inner tube carries the air pressure. Such tires have an impermeable inner tube lined with a tread and a hard outer cover. The inner tube retains the whole air pressure and being inside also remains safe against wear and tear.

Huge Cart for a Huge Load

This GOR866R Garden Cart has a hauling capacity of 1200 pounds. The cart itself weighs 58.6 pounds and has the following dimensions – Length: 40” x Width: 25” x Height: 10.75”. That is to say, you can carry bigger and heavier loads with this wheelbarrow.

One other feature about this wheelbarrow is that you can add side stakes in order to increase the height of the cart. The cart has pre-designed holes for inserting the stakes. However, you would have to get the stakes.

Finally, the Handle!

Why am I so excited about it? Well, Gorilla has many uncommon features and one of them is included in the handle. Firstly, it is a D-shaped padded handle that allows you maximum surface area for holding and hauling the cart.

Secondly, this handle can be converted to a hook so that you can attach it to a lawn tractor or an ATV. All you need is to loosen a bolt that fixes the handle with the rod and then turn it around. And there you have it!

Why do I say Gorilla is so reliable?

FAQ About the Product
