Works good

good sturdy cart, didn't realize how heavy it was, need help getting it in and out of the car, but other than that it is great. Should put how much the thing weights on description

Rubbermaid cart

Your review: Perfect in every way except rotating wheels need to be front and back

Is this review helpful?


Your review: This cart is outstanding for musicians who must haul musical equipment to gigs. The large shelves nicely support my large Bose sound system including two bass units, a large Belmonte long-shelf, folding music stand and a folding stool. My digital orchestra accordion goes on my back. The rapid configuration makes this utility cart a winner. The cart fits nicely in my Sienna van and stays put via the two front locking wheels. The wheels ride smoothly over sidewalks, door sills, and into elevators. During inclement weather, the top shelve can protect the bottom shelf contents and I simply make two trips into the gig instead on one. Suggestion: The under side of the top shelve could be coated with a mat material that would grip items stored on the cart. Presently, my cased equipment slides off too easily. I will use high quality glue to affix a sure grip material to the folded cart's top side. I have another of these carts which I use for instrument repair. Ron.

Folding Two-shelf Utility Cart, Four Wheels

Your review: I may have to disassemble the cart locking mechanism to polish and lubricate it...if the mechanisms are accessible. I suspect that exposure to the harsh winters may be hard on the internal metal parts. The many exposures to warm and cold environments likely take their toll. Any suggestions for preparing this cart for the winter months would be appreciated. I take much care with my equipment and always take note of repair and maintenance needs. I thank you for offering this cart! Perhaps advertising this as a musician's cart would be helpful, for I was lucky to have found this cart on the internet several years ago. I am glad to see that the price has come down since I bought mine. Best Regards, Ron U. Pro Musician.

Pros: This cart makes an excellent musician's cart and has saved me many trips for wheeling my equipment in to venues. This cart has performed very well for over 2000 performances in four years! I use it to transport all of my accordion MIDI equipment. It fits in my van, stays put since the front wheels lock, and has large enough shelves to handle my Bose L1 Tower II sound system, the digital orchestra accordion, a long-shelf folding music stand, a folding stool, and a songbook case. The wheels glide smoothly over sidewalk/driveway cracks and door thresholds. In inclement weather, the top shelf can be used to protect equipment on the lower shelf. The configuration from "L" shape to to shelf and back to collapsed position is effortless and rapid. With the plastic surfaces and rounded supports there is no chance for my equipment to get scuffed or otherwise damaged.

Cons: Only this year, I have had difficulties with the two shelf configuration, i.e the top shelf does not reliably lock in place. There may be metal components inside that disallow the shelf to lock in properly.

Great Cart

Your review: I was looking for a fold-able but sturdy cart to carry large and expensive custom wedding cakes from our Bakery. This cart has worked out great. I am confident in the way the cart handles the weight in either position and happy that it folds to a compact height for easy storage in our delivery van.Its a bit big and heavy and doesn't lock down in the folded position... which makes it a little awkward to load into and out of the van.

Excellent cart. Versatility is great

Your review: Makes moving stuff on van trips much easier, we can just fold the cart down and throw it in the van. Plus its very versatile for around the department. I bought pneumatic casters and put them on instead of the ones that come with it. Handles bumps very well now. Great product!

Convertible Cart

Your review: Haven't used this we'll see how it holds up over time. This was exactly what we were looking for to move test equipment from the car to the test site...and then have a table to set up the test equipment. You have to attach the wheels and that's it. The overall cart size is a bit bigger than I'd hoped, but the table is exactly the size I was looking for. I would have also like to have seen a "close" lock so that when I'm lifting it into the vehicle it doesn't keep trying to come open.

Great Product

Your review: I ordered this product to use as an IT cart for carting around computers and other related items and could not be happier with it. We find ourselves using it quite a bit and love the convertible feature and love that it folds up and hides away behind the door so it is out of sight and out of the way. Great product Rubbermaid! high quality molded plastic and steel!
