Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Product, but cheap wheels wear out quickly This is a great product, except for one thing - - - the hubs of the wheels (which ride on a steel axle) wear out very quickly, making the wheels very wobbly, causing them to rub on the cart housing. The cart is a great concept, but the wheels are pure, flimsy plastic junk, and make the cart virtually unusable. (I don't think 3 years of seasonal flower bed tending, on a city lot in Ohio, would constitute "extreme usage". . . . ) Very disappointed in this obvious design/manufacturing flaw, especially from a company we've bought from many times in the past, and have been very happy with their products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Is the new model as good as the old model? I purchased this to replace an older Step2 version because I like the functionality. It has been very useful in our two attic spaces. We can't stand up in the space and it's easy to roll while sitting. The old Step2 got a flat "tire". The old plastic one piece wheels served well until one cracked. The new Step2 wheels are only one sided (the plastic doesn't go on the back of the wheel). The wheels pick up more dirt and mud than the old design. In addition, the newer model doesn't handle my load like the old one. The wheels scrape if I don't get my weight centered on the seat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New Design Features not as good as old I love the older Step2 we have so I ordered another one. When it arrived I realized there had been design changes I hadn't noticed in the photos online. The wheels were previously solid. This made them stronger and prevented them filling with mud or mulch and bogging down. The rope tie is no longer included, and I used it frequently to move the cart as well as to haul a large bag of weeds to the compost pile. I was planning on recommending the step2 to my daughter. She had purchased a competing product but the rope ties broke off and the wheels were hollow... Now your product offers no advantage over the one she has.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for indoor use too! I've used this item for years. I think I probably have the original design and have enjoyed using it in my garden. A couple of years ago we bought a front loading washer and dryer. We felt the extra bases that we had to purchase to raise the washer and dryer were too expensive so I use my Garden Hopper. I sit on the Hopper while sorting the laundry and putting it from the washer to the dryer. It's just the right height to be able to reach into the machines and the wheels let me move around to the different piles of laundry. I'm giving one to my brother who just bought the same washer and dryer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am not a gardener by any means! I would love to say I bought this for outdoor use, but I didn't. I actually bought it to help me paint woodwork down a very long hallway. I have trouble with my knees and saw this while shopping for my grandchildren. A lightbulb went off in my head! This would be perfect for when I need to paint the base moldings. I sit on the garden hopper...rags, brushes, tape, in the storage compartment...holder for my drink...and off I go. It has been FABULOUS. My projects are going so much more smoothly;I really love it. Maybe I'll garden in the spring...but I doubt it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for lower back relief With lower back problems, this little cart is great....not only for gardening, but for cleaning baseboards as well. I've only had it for 2 weeks, so only gave it a 4 star rating, as not sure how long the "tires" will hold up as they are not very thick plastic, hollow and completely open on the back side. For the weight of the person and rolling while sitting, I think the tires should be more substantial than that, as plastic can dry out, crack and disintegrate and with them being hollow with no supporting back side...hhhmmmm...time will tell. For now, great relief on my lower back

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic multi-use product..... This is one of the greatest ideas ever! We have had two for many years and got two more for our shore house. They can be used inside and out and are great for doing things with ease........not on your knees! I use the hopper in the garden and to clean out lower cabinets, for painting things such as deck rails and any project that requires getting low to the ground. You can put your phone, tools etc underneath & there is even a place for a drink! They clean easily and are very sturdy. The two old ones look almost new! We absolutely love this product and recommend it to everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A "MUST" for all gardeners!! We bought a Step 2 garden hopper about 20 years ago, and it finally "gave in" last year. In our "older age", we are thrilled to have this new one for gardening, painting, and doing any chores that require stooping over. Sure helps the old back and knees! I really like the open tool compartment....very convenient to grab the tool one needs! From its sturdy construction, I think this Garden Hopper will last 20 years (or longer)like the old one did!! I will be the primary user of this product since my husband is unable to do things independently.

What is the weight restriction of a person sitting on it?

Asked by: Big packrat
I’m about 220 and seems to support me ok. I think more than that would be too much. I never move it while I’m sitting on it especially if the sufface is uneven or soft. FYI - Do not leave it out in the rain especially if you plan on using it indoors. I had to drill a few drain holes before I could bring it back inside. I use it for all kinds of tasks inside and out. This is my second one. My first one lasted at least 10+ years.  Very durable.

Can you pull it like a wagon?
Asked by: J H.
There's no hitch for doing this, but you could put a rope through the opening to pull it. It is pretty light weight to carry.

I do enjoy my Garden Hopper... except for having to lean over and push it out across my yard to work on the rose gardens. I am exhausted by the time I get there! LOL Your ads keep saying "handle". Before I bought this I thought the white seat unsnapped and became a handle to pull it from spot to spot. But no. Then today I see the photo of a man picking it up and carrying it, putting his hand into a slit space in the center of the seat. Ohh my!! Noo picking up... empty maybe, tho cumbersome... BUT with gardening tools and a coupla bottles of water, NEVER! Not all female gardeners are as strong as a man! Does this say FOR MEN ONLY some place?? Please, what should I do to move it around my yard? Buy a length of rope... slip it thru the openings and pull from the front? I need help. Please.

Does the top come off and on on the Garden Hopper?
Asked by: Chita M.
No, the top does not come off. There is room underneath it for small hand garden tools you put in and out from the side. The top has a slit in it you can use to pick it up and carry it with.

isn't 12.5 inches too low to sit and garden?
Asked by: Lisa M.
My Garden Hopper is 13.5 " high. I use a 1" foam pad on top of it for comfort. I find it lets me easily reach crop rows for planting and harvesting. I am 5' 3" tall. It works well for me.
