Review

If you are (a) under 200 pounds, (b) owns a large yard and (c) looking for a comfortable and spacious garden scooter, then this one is just for you. Unlike most of the other widely used garden scooters, this one is made from plastic, but sturdy ones. It is box-shaped and the entire space under the seat can be used for storage, either garden supplies or the produced goods.

This scooter weights just several pounds, even a toddler can stroll it around easily. Besides, for being plastic, it is rust free, so you don’t have to stress about keeping the scooter safe from sun and rain.

The price is very low as there is no metal used while producing this ride. There is nothing to attach or tighten in this scooter, hence, it comes pre-assembled. This one is a great option as a present to any enthusiastic gardener or just to make your gardening more productive.

Review

To accomplish any kind of outdoor projects stress-free, a durable scooter is a piece of essential equipment. If durable is what you are seeking for meeting your purposes, then this model from Gardener’s supply can satisfy you. With its highest weight capacity of up to 400 pounds, it is the most durable one in your list.

The entire scooter is made from 1-inch thick tubular steel and the wheels are 10-inch diameter pneumatic wheel. So that the scooter can withstand years of abuse with irrespective of the weather. There is a small tray underneath the seat and at the back of the seat. The trey is suitable for gloves, bird seed, and other smaller items whereas the bucket at the back has 3 gallons of storage space. Using a tub and extend the capacity even more!

The main advantage of this scooter is its adjustable seat and pulling handle. That is a useful feature if this scooter is being used by different people from the same family. Only the weight of the scooter is something you have to deal with, which reduces its portability.

Things We Liked

  • Durable;
  • Adjustable seat;
  • Highest weight capacity.

Things We Didn't Like

  • Awful smelling tires;
  • Heavy.

  • Includes scooter only;
  • Colors: green;

Review

This one has all the features of a basic garden scooter, with minor flaws. Despite that, we decided to place this scooter in our list because of its durability. Most of the welded joints and paints are done manually, hence the finish is not high-end, but that never affects its performance.

Its storage seemed insufficient for gardening to me if you have an enormous one. For a small to medium garden, this scooter is okay. The construction and paint of this scooter are suitable for rigorous outdoor use. There is less possibility that rust will appear on this very soon.

Its weight is lighter than the Gardener’s supply scooter, but that is still pretty heavy to be steered by younger gardeners. But the seat is adjustable and comfortable as well, even without any cushion. Overall, it is a decent garden scooter available at a decent price. The assembling is easy, but you will need a pair of wrenches and a screwdriver to do that on your own.

Things We Liked

  • Adjustable and comfortable seat;
  • Strong and sturdy;
  • Easy to move around. 

Things We Didn't Like

  • Needs tools to assemble.

4. Ames Lawn- Buddy Lawn Cart - (Model No 1123047100)

  • Includes scooter only;
  • Colors: light brown and dark brown;

Review

Another box cart style garden scooter in our list, as these are very convenient for storage and comes with greater portability. The advantage of this scooter is, you can use it as your gardening toolbox and carry it as you go. No need to waste time doing choose and pick your tools. Besides, the features are absolutely minimalistic. There is nothing to assembly. Just flip the seat, hold the handle and go.

The only drawback of this scooter is its smaller and low-quality wheels. These toy like wheels give out within months. But there is nothing to worry about, just replace these with metallic wheels once they start cracking and your cart cum scooter will be in use for years to come.

Things We Liked

  • Very light;
  • Huge storage;
  • No possibility of tear or rust-out. 

Things We Didn't Like

  • Pricey;
  • Low-quality wheels. 
Miracle-Gro 4-in-1 Garden Stool – Multi-Use Garden Scooter with Seat – Rolling Cart with Storage...

Features

  • Material: plastic;
  • Maximum weight limit: 220 pounds;
  • Storage space: 2 cubic foot;
  • Seat size: not mentioned;
  • Includes scooter and garden gloves;
  • Colors: green and black;
  • Weight: 4 pounds.

Review

First of all, the innovative design is mindblowing of this scooter. As the advertisement says, it is a 4 in 1 scooter. The top part is ‘u’ shaped plastic cover that can double as a seat and when flipped, it can be used as a kneeler. The lower part is a storage box with 2 cubic foot capacity and the wheels let everything roll around the garden.

However, no matter how genius the design is, there are some serious design flaws of this modern style garden scooter if you seat on it, the hinges to the sides pop open. Besides, there is no handle or pull strap to move the cart easily. You have to pick it up and carry it, which can be bothersome depending on how dirty and heavy the scooter is.

The plastic material used for the scooter is flimsy, there is less chance that it will make up to several years. Despite all the negativities, still it can be a good one as a storage box and if it is used less often by a lean person.

Things We Liked

  • The lightest garden cooter;
  • Innovative 4 in 1 functionality;
  • Spacious storage. 

Things We Didn't Like

  • Less durable;
  • No way of pulling. 
Goplus-Garden Cart Rolling Wagon Scooter

Features

  • Material: metal;
  • Maximum weight limit: 330 pounds;
  • Includes scooter and garden gloves;
  • Colors: green and black;
  • Seat size 17.5'' x 14'',
  • Seat height: 19.5’’ to 21.5’’;
  • Weight: 27.5 pounds.

Review

In terms of durability, nothing can beat the sturdiness of classic garden scooters. So, here is another basic scooter for your years of stress-free use. It is made from durable metal and powder coated to make it rust resistant. Like other scooters, it comes with a tray and a square basket for storage.

The wheels are 10 inches in diameter with rubber tires, which is perfect to deal with the muddy and stony surface. The best thing is, the seat cab swivels 360 degrees and can be adjusted between 19.5'' to 21.5''. Besides, the scooter is so durable that it can hold people of up to 330 pounds!

The main problem with metal garden scooters are, these can’ t be light. However, this scooter is lighter than other competitors. Another problem is the storage, which is less than the box shaped plastic scooters. If you are ready to deal with these, then this scooter can be the best buy for you.

Things We Liked

  • Impressive customer service;
  • Strong and long-lasting;
  • 360-degree swivel adjustable seat. 

Things We Didn't Like

  • Limited storage.
Sunnydaze Rolling Garden Cart with 360 Degree Swivel Seat & Tray, Green

Features

  • Material: metal;
  • Maximum weight limit: 225 pounds;
  • Colors: green and black;
  • Seat size 17.5'' x 14'',
  • Seat height: 16.5’’ to 22’’;
  • Includes scooter only;
  • Weight: 28 pounds.

Review

I appreciate the adjustment of this scooter. Its seat can be taken to as down as 16 inches from the ground or as high as 22 inches. If you are looking for a scooter with a comfortable seating position to do numerous projects including gardening, then picking up this one will save your money. Because not all projects require a lower sitting position, hence you can adjust the seat to lowest while gardening or highest while working in the garage.

Though its weight capacity is not the highest, it is durable enough to carry people up to 100 kg weight. The seat is spacious as well. The included rack and tray keeps your supplies and necessary tools at arms reach.

The warranty offered for this scooter makes it a more promising purchase for your garden. If you have young children living in your house, who may become interested in playing with this scooter, then think twice before ordering. Because, the advertisement says not to.

Things We Liked

  • Comes with long warranty;
  • Comfortable seat;
  • Large seat;
  • Long lasting.

Things We Didn't Like

  • No cons.
Peach Tree Garden Cart Rolling Work Seat with Tool Tray Heavy Duty Gardening Planting New

Features

  • Material:  heavy-duty steel;
  • Maximum weight limit: 300 pounds;
  • Colors: green, blue and red;
  • Seat size 17.32" x 13.78",
  • Seat height: 16.5’’ to 22’’;
  • Handle adjustment: 20.08" to 30.71"
  • Includes scooter only;
  • Weight: N/A;

Review

Apart from the seat, the handle is also adjustable in this scooter. The manufacturer understands that everyone is not of the same height or physical condition. Hence, an expandable handle enhances the usability when it comes to a garden scooter. If the bottle green color of all other producers seems boring to you, then you can look for other color variations here.

The seat size is smaller than the previously reviewed Sunnydaze one, but comparing to the weight capacity, the size is perfect. Because any person below 300 pounds will never need a seat over 17 inches wide. The attached have air-filled rubber tires to serve you for a really long time without giving up.

This scooter will be a blessing for senior citizens, especially who desperately seeks comfort to ease their physical limitations. The handles help to pull the scooter, but it does not help to steer it. For steering, you have to lift the front wheels up in the air and move the scooter on the rear wheels. It’s an easy job as the scooter is not so heavy.

Things We Liked

  • Has color variation;
  • Excellent tires;
  • Comes with extendable handle;

Things We Didn't Like

  • No instructions for assembly.

  • Colors: green, blue and red;
  • Seat size 17.32" x 13.78";
  • Seat height: 16.5’’ to 22’’;
  • Handle adjustment: 42" to 47"
  • Includes scooter and assembly tools;
  • Weight: 30 pounds.

Review

Considering the range of features of this scooter, we have decided to put another Sunnydaze s garden scooter in our list. With swivel and adjustable seat, this one has an expandable handle, high quality wheels, and durable storage tray and basket. Despite the great features, unfortunately, this ride has got several negative reviews because of its poor welding on the front part. Which is responsible for bending or breaking down after first use even if the user is not close to the weight capacity margin.

However, for this reason, I personally don’t recommend for anyone who is over 200 pounds. Like other Sunnydaze products, it is backed by a warranty for any manufacturer malfunctioning. Another positive matter of this scooter is, you don’t have to own any screwdriver or wrench to put together this thing. All equipment for assembly is included in the package.

Things We Liked

  • Warranty offer;
  • Comes with tools for assembly;
  • Handles highly expandable.

Things We Didn't Like

  • Not for people over 200 pounds;
  • Heavy.

  • Seat height: 14’’;

Review

It is the smallest and most compact garden scooter in our list. With it's under storage, wheels, cover cum seat and drink holder it is minimalistic also. You don’t have to worry about assembly, disassembly, seat size, storage dimension or maintenance. Spend on this scooter once and you will be worry free for years.

It is the lightest scooter also, there is no need to pulling this around as you go. There is a built-in handle on the lid cum seat so that you can pick it up and carry everywhere like a toolbox. Its small size and lightweight increases its portability. Place it in your car and carry to anywhere for the campaign, bbq parties or any other project.

The size and shape are less like a garden scooter and more like a toy car for toddlers. It will surely enhance the look of your patio or yard even it is left there without maintenance. Only a mixture of soapy water is enough to clean this scooter occasionally.

Things We Liked

  • Maintenance free;
  • Ultralight;
  • No assembly required;
  • Compact design.

Things We Didn't Like

  • Weight limit.

What is a Garden Scooter:

By garden scooter, we understand the combination of a regular or adjustable seat with the wheeled mechanism to move or swivel around your garden.

If you own a garden scooter, you don’t need to bend, crouch or strain for gardening. You can also store your tools and device easily in it by attaching a storage unit.

Even you can store them outdoor without being worried about corrosion or rust as they come with weather resistant finish.

Buying Guide:

Garden scooters are incredibly comfortable and useful device. But you need to know about the features that make it ‘incredible’.

Which means you need to know about the features of a good quality garden scooter before buying a garden scooter.

And they are-

1. Material:

Usually, garden scooters are made with rubber, metal or hard plastic. If you want a heavyweight scooter to carry several garden tools, pick one with the steel frame and large rubber wheels. If you want a lightweight scooter that you can pull easily within the garden, go for a scooter that made with hard plastic.

2. Type:

Garden scooters are categorized into two types according to design- one type is enclosed design and another one is an open design. Wheels of the enclosed models are covered with the seat and the seat is also not adjustable in this model.

On the other hand, open model garden scooters have adjustable seat and they are quite similar to a small tractor.

3. Storage:

The garden scooter you’re going to buy must have enough storage capacity for your tools and other necessary things. So check that the utility tray and the rear basket of the scooter are big enough to carry all of your important items.

4. Size:

Another important thing you should consider before buying a garden scooter is its size. If you need to carry around many tools and equipment, pick the one which is a little bit large.

5. Color:

For outdoor equipment, you should choose the color that is easy to clean. The color should also cover the dents and scratches that get during use. For a garden scooter, preferable colors are black, brown, green or gray as they blend well with nature.

6. Durability:

Check the durability of the scooter before buying. For this look for the frame material, wheels and tires. For a durable one, you can choose the steel frame and rubber wheels.

7. Customizability:

All gardens and gardeners are different. That’s why a customizable scooter is preferable. A customizable garden scooter allows you to customize it according to your preferences.

8. Price:

Next important thing is to check for the price. It is known to all that price of a device depends on its quality, functionality and durability. So check your budget and requirements and pick the one that suits them both.

Conclusion:

If you love gardening and have a huge garden full of your favorite trees and plants, you need to take proper care of them regularly. But it is quite impossible to take care of a large garden without any motorized vehicle. Because any type of laborious tasks is nearly impossible while pains and aches become involved.

In that case, a garden scooter can be the savior!

You can complete your gardening properly without any pain and injury with the help of it in a very short time.

For choosing the right scooter to serve your purpose, you can check out the features that make a scooter the best one.

And if you get confused to choose one from the wide range of variation my top 10 list can help you. Because in this list I’ve tried to include almost all type of scooter from low budget to high budget.

You just need to match your requirements with the scooter and get the best one for you.

So what are you waiting for!!!

Get your one and start gardening...
