Worx Aerocart Review – WG050

As Stu once said, “push it, pull it, tow it.”  I guess you would only get that commercial if you lived in Chicago.   It was one of those commercials that just stuck in your head because you heard it for so many years.  Anyways, when I first saw the Aerocart by Worx, that saying was the first thing I thought of.  If you’re not familiar with the Aerocart system, it’s a pretty cool spin on a wheel barrow and hand truck all in one.

The Aerocart is an 8-in-1 all purpose lifter and carrier.  According to Worx the system makes moving 300 lbs, feel like moving 25lbs.  Now I have no way to confirm the exact weight, but it does make a huge difference and does a great job.  However I do feel for a taller person, they will be bending over a little more compared to a full size wheel barrow.  But again, it is much easier to move around than a wheel barrow.  As you can see by the video below, it also converts from a wheel barrow to a hand truck and even allows a user to move pots and boulders with its large foldable arms.  Yes, you can even move a small trailer with this cart, provided you have a ball for the trailer.

All in all this cart is cool.  Someone had the bright idea to take 2 different items (Wheel Barrow and Hand Truck) and they don’t just turn it into a 2-in-1, but they turn it into an 8-in-1.  The double wheel instead of a single wheel makes moving this cart around very easy.  Also, the idea of using flat free tires is pretty cool as well.

If you are looking for a cool system to have around the house to help with moving items around, this is a must own system.  Is this going to eliminate a wheel barrow or hand truck for all?  No way.  For a single mother, someone who might not want to mess around with their back and numerous other people, this cart is perfect.  While I will get a lot of use out of this cart, I think my wife will like it more.  I move a lot of wood, dirt and other things where my full size wheel barrow will still come in handy.

  1. I really need a nice work wheel barrow. If 300 lbs equals 25 lbs it’s a great balance ratio that this cart is doing. This would be great moving stones or bricks from one place to another. Or simply put, just moving heavy crap around. The one thing that you mentioned that worries me on your write up or dislikes is the thin metal on the cart. I wonder how will it hold up after all the abuse it may go thru. I also like the 3 year warranty & it it holds up for that long it was money well spent. Laters TIA

  2. I have been watching the infomercial on this cart and I so want to buy it, but I really want to see it and feel its heft first. Does it seem like its durable for use on small hobby farm? the thing that sold me is the fact you can move potted plants by yourself! Would love to win this for my dad for Father’s Day!

  3. It looks like a pretty nice device for flat,level areas. On a hillside with a load on it, it may have a tendency to tip. The major benefit of a single wheel barrow is that it can be leveled out by the operator on unleveled surfaces. All in all it would be handy around the house, but not a replacement for the traditional wheelbarrow

  4. I would need considerable convincing that the extended arms can accommodate 300 pounds of dead weight without collapsing. I don’t see any evidence of them being solid and if hollow, where are the stress folds?
