The black Polar Cub Cart is probably the best wheelbarrow I have used till now. I bought it two weeks back and within this short time, the wheelbarrow has proven its efficiency. Simple design, 7 Cubic Feet volume capacity and provisions for adding further advantages. That is exactly what I was looking for in my gardening partner. In this Polar Trailer 8449 7 Cubic Feet Heavy-Duty Cub Cart Review I will tell you all about it.
Durable Materials Make It Strong For Polar Trailer 8449 7 Cubic Feet Heavy
The main tub is made of polyethylene. Polyethylene is a very durable material. It has very high impact strength. This means, if you drop it from the roof of your house, two stories or more, the tub will not break, much less fractured. I have not tried this in person, though.
To add make it more long lasting, the steel frame (which constitutes the whole of the frame) is powder coated. This layer of coating makes the structure immune to corrosion. I can say for sure that this thing is weather resistant and can withstand years of use.
Just Load and Haul – It’s That Easy
My previous wheelbarrow had a shovel like a handle. And it felt quite uncomfortable every time I hauled it. I could not easily place my hands and so I could not exert necessary force.
However, the Polar Trailer Wheelbarrow has aced it in this regard. It has a loop handle. This provides me with maximum grip and so I can exert as much force I want, without any discomfort. The handle is all steel, so it is very much reliable like the rest of the cub cart.
Serves my Purpose
The Polar 8449 Wheelbarrow is really light in weight. The overall weight is somewhat 35 pounds. It has a load capacity of 400 pounds. Compared to the competition it has, this capacity is low. But it turned out that that is enough for me.
Plus, it has a volume capacity of 7 Cubic Feet. I feel that this compensates the load capacity. The actual plus point of this product is that it lets you add stakes to help you load bigger things. There are holes/slots added on the sides of the cart.
Wide Track Wheels
The Polar Trailer 8449 uses rubber made wide track tires. They are 16-inch by 4.8-inch wide, with a rugged body surface. The tires are working fine. The rugged surface of the tires helps to roll over uneven surfaces that you might encounter.
While the tires help you to haul, a pair of steel legs helps you to keep stationed. The legs don’t have shoes, so they get in direct contact with the surface. They help me to keep the wheelbarrow steady over rubbles or mud.

Polar Cub Cart Cons

FAQ for the Product
Here are answers to few of the popular questions that people ask around before purchasing this product.
What is the “Tire to Tire” width of this cart?
It has a 29-inch width from tire to tire (give or take).
Can one use it as an ATV cart?
Personally, I haven’t tried it yet. But there are mixed opinions floating around regarding this aspect. Some users have lifted a load nearing the weight of 400lbs. But others are doubtful and advise you to buy a special ATV cart for your needs.
Like I said in the beginning, I have used it for two weeks and happy with its service. This is a moderately priced wheelbarrow and possibly that is why they have used rubber tires. And so adding the cost of the spares, the whole price range would be almost as same as that of a top grade one.
That seems fair. If you share the same opinion at this point of this Polar Trailer 8449 7 Cubic Feet Heavy-Duty Club Cart Review, I say you buy it too.
