It's okay...

"Bought this for my wife and she is happy with it. That's worth 5 stars right there.
Other nice points: the tool tray under the seat is large enough to hold a hand trowel or small pair of garden shears (although if you lower the seat height all the way down, the seat post will intrude into the storage area, although it doesn't actually contact the tool tray.,
The cushioned seat and the tool pouches are a nice touch also.
But...
Take off 1 star for the laughable assembly instructions: half a dozen scribbled illustrations (a 5-year old child could have drawn them better) and text that doesn't match the drawings and barely resembles the reality of the assembly process. The only good news about the assembly is that a reasonably competent handyman won't NEED instructions for something this simple. But a novice might be in trouble.
Take off another star for the "400 lb" weight limit. There is absolutely NO WAY this thing would be usable with that much weight on it, assuming the small-diameter, thin-wall tubing didn't just fold up under the weight. 200# would be a more reasonable load. And even under that load (50% of stated maximum), steering while sitting on it is flat-out impossible, even on smooth, flat concrete - don't even try it on grass or gravel.
Don't get me wrong. I'm sure my wife will get lots of use out of it in our garden - she doesn't weight 400#, after all! But I like to buy stuff that is WAY better (stronger, more power, etc, etc) so as not to ever come close to an item's limits, much less exceed those limits.
For example, I buy 400#-rated ladders, when I only weigh 220. That way, with only moderate care, I'll never have a chance of wearing out the ladder, much less exceeding it's limits. Not the case with this cart, I fear.
Other dings, though not bad enough to take off a star:
The "rear basket" is tiny and flimsy - you will NOT be putting your garden harvest in there. It's barely big enough for a few tomatoes or peppers, and I seriously doubt it would hold more than 5 to 10 lbs of weight, so you won't be using it to anchor a large basket.
The tires were flat when I took them out of the box. Not the end of the world (after all, everyone in the world has an air compressor, right? Well, good thing I do...). But when was the last time you bought ANYTHING with pneumatic tires and they weren't aired up at the factory? How hard is that?
Lastly, the packaging was a joke: just a big cardboard box with everything tossed into it loose - NO padding/packaging materials beyond a few plastic bags and the odd piece of bubble wrap here and there.
What's the bottom line? Even with all the caveats, I would still recommend this to others. It gets the job done at a reasonable price.
Just don't expect the world, and make SURE that you (or a friend/neighbor/relative/etc) can assemble something like this using just common sense -without needing clear, step-by-step instructions."
