WORX Aerocart Wheelbarrow Review: Multifunctional For Easy Yard Maintenance

Working in the yard and garden often requires a certain amount of tools and supplies from time to time. The trips carrying mulch, plants, transplanting tools, or moving something from one area to another can add up quickly. It may be great exercise to make those multiple trips, but can also be a real hassle to be efficient in completing a task when you can’t concentrate on just one thing.

Owning a wheelbarrow can be a real help to move materials from one place to the next, especially if you have a heavy load. The average wheelbarrow makes due in a pinch, but what if you had one that was multi-purposeful and designed specifically for outdoor yard and gardening tasks that went beyond just hauling materials?

The WORX Aerocart Wheelbarrow is just that, and can transform into multiple tools to help you when, and where, you need it.

Why Own a WORX Aerocart?

The WORX Wheelbarrow isn’t your standard wheelbarrow design. The difference lies in the Aerocart title, that designates it as a multifunctional cart that is compatible with conversion kits for additional use around your yard and garden. Not only can you use it as a traditional wheelbarrow to help move materials, this design is more of an all-in-one tool you may find you can’t live without.

This highly versatile product is built for lifting and moving almost anything you can think of and comes with a series of accessories to help make this happen. Landscaping rocks or large potted plants need to be shifted? No problem. What about clearing your driveway of snow? It has you covered.

WORX is a long standing name with a variety of helpful, and innovative tools to help you get the job done and make anyplace your workplace.

Features and Benefits

There seems like an endless list of features this model has, of which I’ll provide details about below. The benefits of the WORX Aerocart has gained it some pretty hefty ratings from users over the years, although the design may not be quite for everyone. Take a look below at its uses to determine if this is a good pick for your needs.There seems like an endless list of features this model has, of which I’ll provide details about below. The benefits of the WORX Aerocart has gained it some pretty hefty ratings from users over the years, although the design may not be quite for everyone. Take a look below at its uses to determine if this is a good pick for your needs.

Stainless Steel Design

The entire design of this cart, barring the tires, is stainless steel. From the tray to the durable steel piping that provides both support and conversion abilities, this cart should hold up for years without any breakdown of strength abilities. Everything other than the cart is powder coated as well for added protection. This may not make it scratch proof, but reviews state it doesn’t rust easily, especially if stored correctly.

Comfort End Grips

Unlike many wheelbarrows, the handles of this design end in comfortable grips to help provide cushioning to your hands. This is especially helpful for heavy loads that rest upon delicate joints as you lift, and if you have to push your load any length of distance provides better weight distribution.

3 Cubic Foot Steel Tray

3 Cubic Foot Steel Tray

The 3 cubic foot tray capacity can carry up to a 300 pound load although you may have difficulty getting that amount of material into it. As a huge fan of my 4 cubic foot wheelbarrow, I find that loading it up makes it pretty difficult to move from point A to B anyway as it is rather heavy.To me a 3 cubic foot tray is probably a perfect size to move with comfort, especially since the WORX design is made to make a 200lb load feel like 17 lbs. To some people who need to move large loads quickly, this may be a bit too small a tray to be effective, and this wheelbarrow truly isn’t made to be used for any sort of commercial sized yard jobs.
Flat Free Dual Tire Design

Flat Free Dual Tire Design

A flat free tire ensures you won’t be changing out your tire after every sharp rock, or unexpected nail, creates a puncture. Inflated tires also eventually begin to rot out in the weather, causing cracks and fissures that may cause slow leaks, or unpatchable sidewall damage.Flat free tires are made of durable plastic that may wear over long term use, but will give you the peace of mind that you can get straight to the task at hand without having to change a tire. The only real drawback is that it doesn’t have as much give as an inflatable, and can make your travel over rough ground a bit ‘bumpy’.
Multi-Functional

Multi-Functional

The greatest feature of this wheelbarrow is what it comes with to make it multi-purposeful. Whereas a regular wheelbarrow is mainly for hauling only what you can lift into or out of it, the Aerocart provides you with the tools to move awkward or heavier items with ease.It is important to note that the entire system is somewhat low profile, making a taller person having to lift the handles higher which may cause some unbalancing of a regular wheelbarrow load. This was the number one complaint of users, if a complaint was made.
Dolly

Dolly

This dual dolly feature provides you with a 300 lbs carrying option of large, heavy objects around the house and yard, or an 80 lbs capacity when used with the extension arms for bulkier objects. This is extremely helpful in that your wheelbarrow now has become a household help as well for moving more than just yard related items.

Potted Plant and Rock Mover

Potted Plant and Rock Mover

Save your back with the included mesh and pot straps to help lift large, awkward loads that you may not be able to load into a wheelbarrow on your own. SImply extend the extension arms, clip on your strap after getting it situated, and lift! No more dragging decorative items or trying to lift and carry them into place- this tool will get it done for you with a minimal amount of effort.

Bag Holder

Bag Holder

You don’t need a separate bin for your yard waste anymore. Simply snap on the included bag holder to the frame of the cart and put in your bag of choice, freeing up your hands and making transport to the curb for pickup an easy task. This may be my favorite feature as I find myself making trip after trip to my waste pile while pruning because I hate trying to keep a bag open while trying to load it up and find carrying it all less frustrating.

Cylinder Carrier

Cylinder Carrier

Cylinder clip holders snap on the frame and work with the dolly system to move rounded containers, such as trash cans, barrels, and water jugs with ease. No more dragging or tipping your trash down to be picked up, or avoiding filling a container to the top because you know you won’t be able to move it. Now you can utilize all the space and get it where you need without straining your body.

Optional Conversion Abilities

As if the above abilities weren’t enough, you can also convert your cart for even further needs with the following kits:

Wagon Conversion

Wagon Conversion

Simply snap this kit into place and get rolling- no tools needed! This conversion setup includes a dual, flat free tire kit with utility and cup holder tray to turn your cart into a wagon. This makes moving garden materials around that much easier, and to sweeten the deal, and comfy cushion that fits over the edges of the cart is included. Now you can take a seat while gardening and not straining your back or knees.
Snowplow Conversion

Snowplow Conversion

Fully adjustable to three different heights, this plow snaps into place and is secured without the use of any tools, making setup, and teardown simple. A galvanized steel wear strip is part of the poly plow bed to keep the edge protected and provides you with the ability to get the most out of each sweep. Clearing and moving snow by hand has never been easier with this kit.
Firewood Conversion

Firewood Conversion

I know when I used to haul firewood from the yard to the door I was always careful of how I stacked the wood in case I hit a bump and toppled the whole load. This heavy duty steel frame and durable canvas will hold up to years of firewood loading and hauling with proper care. Plus, it attaches in mere seconds without the use of tools.

Optional Accessories

WORX provides even further accessories that works with your Aerocart depending on your needs. A 20 gallon waterbag to get water to hard to reach places or to water livestock is available as well. Organizer bags, and even tool clips, can be purchased to use with your Aerocart to personalize it for your individual needs.
