Marine Dock Carts Field Test 2007
Eight cargo-carrying, stowable carts and hand trucks were put through their paces to see which one best serves the sailor.
The three hand trucks—Roleez Folding-Wheel, Sea Bowld, and Dock Dolly—were nearly identical, with telescoping handles and flip-up bases. The four others—the Roleez Sports Caddy, Pack N Roll, Wonder Wheeler, and the Foldit—ran the gamut from a very compact, crate-style cart (Pack N Roll) to the large, workhorse Foldit dock cart. Testers considered each rolling cart’s performance on and off the dock. They also loaded onto the carts items that are often carried to and from the boat—a 12-volt battery, cooler filled with food, and a duffel bag of clothes. Testers also noted how easily each was stowed and how much room it took up.
