Okay if you have someone that knows wood go with you.
Remember thet the wheels are the most expensive part of that cart. They are very hard to repair, most times it is more costeffective to replace the wheels.
You usually must replace the wheels and axel at the same time. Those wheels will run you around $400+ to replace if they are rotten.
If the paint is just stripped not peeling from the weather it is a possibility.
Again the most important is the wheels.
Lift up the cart on one side and spin the wheels, they should spin freely several times around. My meadowbrook spins about 5-6 times. When you spin they should not wobble to much, half inch is okay but no more. The wheels should be round with no flat spots. The wheels should be beveled, not straight up and down, this helps with concushion. Check to make sure the spokes are not loose where they go into the fellows. Make sure the fellows are not rotten just inside the iron rim. Shake the wheels and see how loose they are where they attach to the axel, some play is ok, you can fix with washers but not alot.
