StoutKart LLC
Ontario, Ore.

New Products for Masonry Contractors

The innovative StoutKart not only transports pressure washers, welding and other equipment, but also uses a patented leverage design to easily lift up to 500 lbs. of weight. As you press down on the handle, the main platform of the StoutKart rises. When you reach the desired height, simply lock the handle and the Stout Kart remains in that position until you release the lock. The StoutKart can be mounted and dismounted from a receiver hitch using this easy mechanism and quick-release design. Plus, because the cart is mounted on the back of the vehicle rather than being towed, there are no special licensing, lighting or inspections required. For more information, call (888) 436-4600, or visit www.stoutkart.net.
