REVIEW – I’ve always been attracted to products that are designed to do more than one function. That’s why the WORX Aerocart caught my eye when I first saw it. I immediately imagined all the work that I could get done using one tool instead of many. Let’s check out this transformer yard cart from WORX!

What is it?

The WORX Aerocart is a modular wheelbarrow that can be used to do all sorts of tasks and chores around your yard and garden.

What’s in the box?

The WORX Aerocart requires some assembly, but don’t worry because you don’t need any tools and it’s very simple and quick.

The main body of the cart which is made of powder-coated steel, is assembled at the factory (shown above). All you need to do is attach two wheels and the handles.

The tires are made of polyurethane and are solid. That means that there are no worries about them going flat or having to air them up periodically.

The wheels attach to the cart by inserting the included shaft into the axle.

Then you just slide in the shaft lock pin through the axle and shaft to secure the wheel to the cart.

Super easy to do and no tools were required. Note that you can turn the Aerocart into a 4-wheeled wagon if you buy the optional wheelbarrow wagon kit.

Attaching the handles is even easier than attaching the wheels.

One end of WORX Aerocart has two orange handle locking levers. In the image above, the levers are in the locked position.

To unlock them, you just lift them up as you see above.

Then you can insert the handles in slots…

… and lock the levers back in place. How easy was that?! Once secured, the handles feel very sturdy and stable.

With the assembly completed, it’s time to check out all the features.

Design and features

The selling point for the WORX Aerocart is all its features and ability to add more functions through the modular add-ons.

One of the primary features of the Areocart is that it can be used as a 2-wheeled dolly to move heavy items like boxes, appliances, etc. In the image above, the dolly flap is in the folded position.

Unfolding the dolly flap is as easy as sliding it to one side to unlock it and then rotating it outward as you see in the image above.

Once it’s unfolded, you have a 2-wheeled cart/dolly with a 300 lb load capacity. I used it to move some heavy boxes in my garage and found it to have great balance.

You can add this included cylinder holder to the cart by inserting it into the slots on the cart’s side rails.

With the cylinder attachment, you can use the WORX Aerocart to move large buckets.

It is also perfect for moving heavy bottles of water up to 80 lbs.

Another attachment that is included with the Aerocart is the bag holder attachment. Like the cylinder holder, the bag holder easily slides and locks into the slots on the sides of the cart.

The bag holder even has an elastic cord that secures the bag in place while you’re filling it.

Imagine using the bag holder as an easy hands-free way when cleaning up trash, leaves, etc.

Did you think we were done? Nope! The WORX Aerocart can do even more for you when you unfold the extension arms.

Once unfolded, you can hook the included mesh rock mover basket.

Don’t have any rocks to move? How about heavy potted plants? No worries, you can use the pot mover strap that is also included with the Aerocart.

The adjustable strap goes around the pot and then attaches to the hooks at the end of the extension arms.

This potted plant is heavy and awkward to pick up and move around by hand, but when you use the straps and the WORX Aerocart, moving it is almost effortless due to the excellent balance and center of gravity.

And of course, you can use the Aerocart like you would a traditional wheelbarrow. The capacity isn’t huge at a 3 ft volume/300 lb load, but I think it’s just fine for the tasks that I do around my yard which consist of moving dirt, yard debris, etc.

The cart even has fold-down legs.

Additional add-ons include a firewood hauler bag, tub organizer, seat attachment, and a snow shovel attachment.

In my short time using the WORX Aerocart, I’ve found it to be very well made like all WORX products that I’ve tried, and very versatile.

What I like

  • Multi functions
  • Modular design
  • Available add-ons
  • No tool assembly
  • Flat-free tires

What I’d change

  • Nothing

Final thoughts

The WORX Aerocart is the Swiss Army knife of yard tools. I like that it’s one tool that can be used as a lightweight wheelbarrow, a yard cart, a bag holder, a 2-wheel dolly, a cylinder carrier, and a rock/plant mover. It’s very well made, easy to convert for each task, and even has a 2 year warranty that can be extended to 3 years if you register it online within 30 days of purchasing it. In my opinion, WORX has a winner on its hands with the Aerocart.

    1. The question is always, how much functionality do you actually lose, vs. how often to you need the tool? Yes, if you need a dolly on a daily basis, this isn’t the dolly to buy – but if you only need one occasionally, this will probably do what you need and if the cost of the combined tools is higher than the cost of the multi-tool, you’re ahead. (Note not all cost is monetary – consider storage and other costs as well.)

  2. Do you think the bag holder would work with paper yard waste bags? That’s what we use for clean-up once we fill our regular barrels.
