Cat, that's for old, usually very cosmetically damaged easy entry type carts xD that's what I got mine for; $225- but the seat is all torn up and it needed a few bolts replaced. Still a good deal though. The new/lightly used easy entry carts push $400 or so, and show carts are even more.
Miniatures may be able to pull up to three times their weight; but that all depends on the balance of your cart and harness, the mini's fitness level, and its own height. Many people also make the mistake of measuring that number by what their mini weighs when it is over weight; straining their horses too much. Just because a mini weighs 300 lbs doesn't mean it should be pulling 900 lbs! My mini mare weighs 225 lbs and I'm comfortable asking her to pull as much as 325 lbs when she's in good condition for short amounts of time on good ground, but I never ask her to do more. I don't even ask for that much if its wet out or the ground is rocky.
