We have 3 (or 4?) carts here at Puget Ridge. I'm pretty sure we didn't buy them as a group. They all just showed up. I don't know where they came from but, as far as I can guess, they were owned before by various households who decided to share them with everyone. Similarly, we have an amazing array of tools of all sorts (especially gardening) that everyone contributed to the community after move-in. All of our carts are of the same general design, but appear to be from different makers. All are low to the ground, have 2 large inflatable tires, and a removable slat in the front for dumping a load. They vary in size, and in the use of metal or wood for the various parts. We use them for all sorts of tasks, especially landscaping and gardening as well as moving groceries and household items. Only one of them has a label on it. It reads "Homestead Carts, Salem OR, 87305 (503) 390-5586." It's pretty nice, tho probably not the best of them. That one's about 29 inches wide on the outside, another is about 32 inches, and the third is wider still (I'm not sure where it is right now to measure it). Sorry for taking so long to reply. I have a hard time keeping up with this list. Larry Israel Puget Ridge Cohousing Seattle WA
