How many jobs can the Worx Aerocart perform?
The applications for the Aerocart are limitless and start with 8 different configurations. The Worx Aerocart can transform into a Wheelbarrow, Hand Truck/dolly, Extended Dolly, Bag Holder, Cylinder Holder, Rock Mover, Plant Mover, and Trailer Mover. Optional accessories expand the Aerocart’s utility even further. Using the wagon kit, you can convert the Aerocart into a garden wagon or utility cart. Worx even offers a Snow Plow attachment to get the most out of Aerocart in EVERY season!
How can the Aerocart convert to so many different tools?
Converting the Aerocart is simple and fast.
To convert between the Wheelbarrow and Dolly, simply pull the Release Knob on the side of the cart. Fold or unfold the legs as needed. They lock into place automatically.
For Dolly mode, slide the Dolly Flap Plate to the right and fold it down. It will lock into place automatically.
: When converting between Dolly and Wheelbarrow, tip the Aerocart forward so that no weight is on the wheels. Then pull the Release Knob.
To convert to the Extended Dolly, Plant Mover or Rock Mover, fold down the Extension Arm. Stack materials directly on top of the Extension Arm, or attach the proper strap for moving rocks or potted plants.
The Bag and Cylinder Holders hook directly into the frame of the AeroCart.
Use the Aerocart to move trailers simply by attaching your hitch ball to the Dolly Flap when the cart is in Wheelbarrow mode.
How do I make the Dolly Flap fold up and down?
Stand in front of the Aerocart. Slide the flap firmly to the right and move the flap up or down.
How does the Aerocart make the load feel lighter?
The Aerocart exploits the physics of leverage. As a Wheelbarrow, the Aerocart tub is specially shaped to concentrate the center of gravity directly over the wheels for a perfectly balanced load that can be lifted and moved with ease. The two wheels improve stability so the Aerocart will not tip over like a standard wheelbarrow.
In Dolly mode, the wheels automatically shift forward, closer to the Dolly flap and the center of gravity, creating leverage that makes lifting the load easier.
Will the Aerocart tip over?
The Aerocart is very difficult to tip over. The two oversized wheels are self-balancing and lend tremendous stability side to side.
What is the capacity of the Aerocart tub?
The Aerocart will hold between 3 and 4 cubic feet of material.
How much weight can the Aerocart hold?
The Worx Aerocart will hold up to 300 pounds in wheelbarrow and dolly mode.
How much weight can the Extended Dolly lift?
Up to 80 pounds of material can be stacked on the Extended Dolly arms.
How much weight can the Plant Mover or Rock Mover lift?
The Worx Aerocart can lift a potted plant, large rock, and many other items using the Extension Arm and proper strap. Maximum weight for items lifted using the Extension Arm is 80 pounds.
How much weight can the Bag Holder hold?
The Bag Holder can support a bag weighing as much as 40 pounds.
How much weight can the Cylinder Holder hold?
The Cylinder holder can support up to 80 pounds.
I read that using a trailer ball, the Worx Aerocart can even move trailers. What is the maximum size of trailer that the Aerocart can move?
The trailer’s size is not as important as the weight. Maximum trailer weight is 1000 pounds, and maximum tongue weight is 100 pounds.
Of what material is the Aerocart made?
The Worx Aerocart is made of steel.
Of what material are the tires made?
The Aerocart’s flat free tires are polyurethane and will never need inflating. The wheel hubs are polypropylene.
What is a Flat-Free tire?
The Aerocart’s tires are made of solid polypropylene. The tires are soft and absorb shock like a regular tire, but there no inner tube or air requirement. The tire can never go flat and never needs inflating. Ever.
How much does the Aerocart weigh?
The Aerocart, when fully assembled with handles and wheels but no other attachments, weighs 39 pounds.
Will the Aerocart rust?
The Worx Aerocart is painted with a thick powder coating to protect the surface and prevent rust. But since the main components are solid steel, as the cart is exposed to wear and tear from the rigors of outdoor use, the Aerocart may show signs of rust similar to any other steel implement.
How can I store the Aerocart?
For such a powerhouse of a garden tool, the Aerocart needs surprisingly little room for storage – only 15” from the wall! Convert the Aerocart to Dolly mode and stand it where you want. The handles can be removed, if desired, to conserve the most space during storage.
Is the Aerocart easy to assemble?
The Aerocart is very easy to assemble, takes less than 5 minutes and requires no tools. Once out of the box, insert the two handles into the frame and lock them in. Place the Wheel Shaft through each of the two wheels. Insert the Wheel Shaft in the axle and clip on the Shaft Lock Pin. That’s it. Your Aerocart is yardwork-ready.
: The handles come off the cart just as quickly, making it easy to transport in the truck of a car or back of an SUV, or to minimize storage space.
Why is the Worx Aerocart more narrow than other wheelbarrows?
Ordinary wheelbarrows are limited in their usefulness because they can’t go everywhere. The Aerocart is specially designed to fit through garden gates and even doors. The wheels are 23.5” apart so an Aerocart in Dolly mode rolls up and down a standard truck loading ramp with ease. Explore what more you can do with a tool that’s more than just a wheelbarrow.
What are the dimensions of the Aerocart when assembled?
In wheelbarrow mode: 19” high x 22” wide x 58” long
