    Here's another link (because who doesn't love more links...) of the same cart with 30" wheels
    Kingston Saddlery Supply

    Also available with straight shafts.

    I thought it was a good cart for the money. Hopefully it is fairly sturdy I did splurge on a sprint cart this year and I am very happy with it

    I like the looks of the 30" wheeled cart. Don't even mind the price. The punch line is that they won't ship to Canada or a Box number so they won't be selling one to me. I am in Canada and rural so my box is in the post office. It seems I run into road block after road block when it comes to getting the right cart. So many are for ponies of all sizes.

    I like the 30" wheels too. But I'm trying to figue out if solid rubber or pneumatic wheels (the "motorcycle" wheels) are better for driving on dirt roads, fields, and carriage trails (no paved roads). I e-mailed the company and they haven't gotten back to me yet.

    They don't ship to Canada??!! How un-neighborly!! Do you have friends or family in the U.S. You can use as a ship-to address?

    Here's my Kingston EE cart



    I got it last Christmas. What I *really* wanted was a Frey Sprint, but those things cost more than the car I own. Someday, maybe, but since I'm doing generally light driving as it is, I call my Kingston my "faux Frey" and it does good for me right now.

    It's not a bad cart, it's sturdy, and well put together, not amazingly maybe, but I've never run afoul of any problems (knock wood).



    About 6 months after I got it, I went ahead and upgraded it up to the 32" motorcycle wheels with the extended seat brackets. Put me up even higher and makes it feel more like a Frey for me. I haven't upgraded the shafts to curved ones yet, but that's next on my list.
