My 2 wheel lawn wagon is entirely built from slotted angle for a frame and 1 sheet of 3/8" plywood. The original wheels were from a Simplicity lawn mower. After they failed, I used HF 10" wheels, and after that failed I bought 13" HF pneumatics which have yet to be used. It is pulled behind the lawn tractor.
I looked at the commercial 4 wheel lawn wagon that I think I got at either Lowe's or Home Depot and the wheels are identical to the 10" HF models except they have yellow rims. The wheels on the commercial have never failed to keep air in them and it must be at least 10 years old. It is used to haul dirt and mulch around in the 40" bags.

Harbor Freight still sells a Bigfoot hand truck. Is it the same? Wondering what size bottles it will hold.

Yes, it appears functionally the same, but it's not the same as mine. The yellow version with "no flat" (I think they were called) foam filled tires is vastly superior in my book.
