    Anyone know what type of wood they generally use on these type of carts. Sure seems heavier than a pine or poplar. Almost seem like an oak or fairly dense wood. Need to make a similar cart just a bit bigger and with all terrain tires. Thanks.

    Probably low grade/quality oak. Same wood used to make pallets.

    I can tell you mine is plywood under the carpet since I broke it and had to replace it.
    What is the cheapest wood in China?

    I have seen them in all kinds of species. Red Oak and Maple are probably the most common. White Oak would be good too.

    How much weight are we talking about?

    Atwoods has a small all-terrain wagon rated at 400lbs, and Harbor Freight has one rated at 1200lbs IIRC. Both are expanded-metal on steel frames and have tongue-style pull handles.

    Just a thought. :drunk2:
