Black & Decker Convertible Cart is Extremely Useful

Exactly one year ago, Black & Decker sent me their 3-in-1 collapsible cart for review consideration.

The cart has 3 modes – wagon (with or without fabric liner), flatbed cart, and hand truck.

It has a 176 lb load rating.

I was reluctant, but thought I could give it a quick assessment and then pass it along to a local tester for long-term use. Why not, right?

My initial analysis was mixed, and I wasn’t sure what to think of it, so I held off on both the review and on giving it away.

Black & Decker Convertible Cart without Fabric Liner

Once the fabric liner is removed, you can fold down the sides and use the cart as a flat wagon.

Black & Decker Convertible Cart Hand Truck Mode

It can then be converted to hand truck mode. I have yet to test the cart in this configuration.

Black & Decker Convertible Cart Folded for Storage

It collapses for storage. The footprint isn’t tiny, but I feel it’s reasonably compact.

Black & Decker Convertible Cart Filled with Gear

I donated a bunch of stuff to a local church for their rummage sale, and the Black & Decker cart was perfect for saving my back.

I hauled kids toys, old speakers, and lots of other stuff through the parking lot and down the winding hall to the large room where everything was being sorted.

Black & Decker Convertible Cart Filled with Boxes

Recently, it was just the thing to return a couple of big and bulky boxes.

I didn’t want to have to make multiple trips from the car, so I packed the cart with the boxes and rolled everything into FedEx in one go.

This is not something I would have purchased. I broke a lot of light duty carts, dollies, and hand trucks in the past, and have been upgrading to more robust longer-lasting solutions.

The Black & Decker convertible cart has held up well so far, and I have have found it to be extremely useful.

I’ll still be donating my test sample, but can confidently say that I won’t hesitate to buy a replacement for personal use.

The construction is decent, converting it back and forth through the different modes is easy, and it performed its transport tasks (real-world and simulated for added testing) well.

It just… worked.

I really don’t want to donate my test sample – I would rather wrap it in plastic and store it in the attic to save workshop space – which to me is a very good sign.

I accepted the test sample thinking I would assess and get rid of it quickly, but it proved to be useful without any noticeable compromises, disappointments, or headaches.

To be frank, I thought it would be too light duty for my typical needs or wants, but that turned out to not be the case. Besides this, it’s been maybe 10 years since I’ve touched a new Black & Decker product.

I can’t tell you whether it’s fit for your needs, wants, or potential use. But if you ask me whether I’d buy one today, the answer is YES.

At the time of this posting, you can buy the utility wagon with black or blue fabric liners.

Price: $110 (black), $85 (blue)

Thank you to Black & Decker for providing the test sample.
