The current job I'm now on had some logistical challenges. The biggest issue were to storage material on the job site (stone has to be hauled in one dump truck load at time) the second the moving of the material for this 70' long wall. I had never owned a wagon like this but I figured the foot print it would leave on the landscape would be one of the smallest. I own a wheel barrow but I've never used it for walling.
You can find these just about any were. I picked up mine from my local Tractor Supply Store for about $110. With an investment like this I had nothing to lose if it can help save my back and a little more time. What I like about this wagon over a wheel barrow. I can see all my stones very well and work right off the platform. I can even put down one or all the walls making it even easier to grab stones. This wagon has a great turning radius and will not fall over if you make to tight of a turn since it has a wide wheel base.
This wagon had a rating of 1200 pounds. The first thing I did was to cut some plywood to protect the bed made out of steel mesh. Ya that would not have lasted to long with some rip rap stones. Now I can just throw them in. Well kind of......
So far I've moved over 12,000 pounds of stone - I'd say this was well worth the investment. Really not to bad to pull around either.
