"My wife and I have a small alpaca farm in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. It is an extremely rugged and rocky area, and we were looking for a way to move things from one barn and corral to another, since the males and females are kept separate. There is no flat ground on our little farm, everything is either uphill or downhill, and we found ourselves lugging sacks of feed, bales of hay, muck buckets, bags of cedar bedding, you name it, back and forth, up and down. In addition to being steep, it is quite rocky, and I kept thinking that there must be a better way to move this stuff around.
I saw a picture of the Little Giant® Muck Cart and Bucket in the FarmTek catalog and ordered the cart and 2 buckets, one for each barn. All our hay and feed is stored in the female barn, so I use the cart to take bales and bags down the hill to the male barn. Also, since alpacas "do their business" in more or less the same spot, I use the buckets to scoop and dump, and the bucket fits perfectly into the cart.
It was quite easy to assemble. The instructions were easy to follow and made sense! It can be folded up completely, but I just fold up the lower part and hang it by the handle on a hook attached to the barn wall, out of the way until the next use. It seems heavy duty enough to withstand all the bumping and grinding over all the rocks and holes around here. The pneumatic wheels go easily over all the rocks."
