The cart bottle holders even from what I see online, sit way too low.

The bottle holders are way too low. I took them off on mine cause they were so bent front getting hung up on things. I’ve had to take mine apart 3 times now to put more lock tight. They really should have made everything with lock washers cause there is so much wiggle on my handle even with lock tight.

If it comes apart in the parts you do not want the cart to, then get Loctite Pro or extra strength. Almost guarantied to not come off then, if you feel even that is not really going to work as in already are using that, then get the type of nut so you can use lock washers to hold the parts together.

Pieces are fit together without a lot of welding, so there's a fair amount of shimmy and shake over rough ground, and torque when you pull it around corners. Lastly, it's REALLY low - and you might find some problems with mud and roots.

My takeaway was that the Rover was really good at being a lightweight low rolling platform to pull a bag around on, but it's not built to be anything more than that.
Thanks. I thought stronger aluminum for the frame like that used for some Skateboards or folding scooters but now I know, I saw they did not have much welded but I thought better then that.

Yeah I'm going to but I wish it shipped with the correct washers so I don't have to modify it.
