and not straining your back moving potted plants. >> this actually has lightened the load a lot. i can move it around and not have to worry about that. >> it can tackle any job that i need it to in my yard or anything like that, 'cause you don't need a man. [ laughs ] >> announcer: move anything faster and easier. >> yeah, it's great. it is like magic. >> announcer: the worx aerocart -- make any load as light as air. what's the hardest part of any project? the heavy lifting, the strain of carrying, and the exhaustion from moving. it's all backbreaking work. there's just no easy way to lift, carry, and move things... until now. introducing the worx aerocart, the 8 in 1 all-purpose lifter and mover that makes every load as light as air. worx aerocart is specially developed to actually make you more powerful. the center wheel structure
this gives you unprecedented leverage and instantly makes you up to 4 times stronger. forget old-fashioned wheelbarrows. they're big, bulky, heavy, hard to balance, and won't fit in tight places. worse yet, they make you do all the work. look. 200 pounds in a wheelbarrow means you're carrying 70 pounds. but with the aerocart, the same 200 pounds only feels like 17 pounds -- amazing! watch this 67-year-old of stone with ease. whether you need more topsoil for the garden or are bringing in firewood, the worx aerocart does the heavy lifting for you. with the lifting, carrying, and moving easier, every project can get done faster and with less work. >> i love the aerocart. it's easy to lift, it's easy on the back, and it's easy to roll along. >> i like that it would roll very easily on those big tires that it has. and on the narrow parts of the
guys our age to minimize the -- the strain of lifting, that i can move heavy things around without hurting my back. >> the aerocart absolutely empowers women to do any project, light or heavy, without the assistance of a man, even though we like them.

it's extremely heavy and really... >> watch out! watch out! >> ...unstable. >> what a mess! the worx aerocart changes everything. its revolutionary design does up to 90% of the heavy lifting for you. >> now, watch this. amazingly, the worx aerocart makes this 200 pounds feel like just 17 pounds. this is so much lighter. >> a regular wheelbarrow has one wheel up front, and that's a really bad design that makes you do all the heavy lifting. now, the secret is in the patented turbo lift technology. directly under the load, instantly making you 4 times stronger. >> just think about how much easier every project will be and how much faster you'll be able to get them done. >> the worx aerocart really does lighten every load. >> the aerocart definitely makes things feel lighter because of the design. >> i love the maneuverability. i love the big tires. i love the leverage that you can get with it.
changes the leverage point completely. and when i first used the aerocart, i was surprised by how light the load felt. >> the aerocart itself is so light, but, yet, it will hold a whole lot of things. >> the aerocart makes me able to do the things that i still like to do, need to do, and want to do with much less problem and a lot more ease. >> i'm a big fan. i've been the cheerleader from day 1 and been showing it to everyone and telling everyone about it. >> announcer: the worx aerocart giving you 4 times more lifting power. you're gonna love how it feels from the very first time you try it. >> [ chuckling ] oh, my god. >> one hand?! are you kidding me?! >> oh, balanced beautiful! >> announcer: old-fashioned wheelbarrows make you do all the heavy lifting. ever try moving 200 pounds in a regular wheelbarrow? >> definitely uneven. whoa! [ laughs ] [ clattering ] like, it might make a mess. >> announcer: but watch as the
>> much easier. this lightens the load a lot. >> this is good. this is easy. >> yeah, it's great. it is like magic. >> it's got a stamped steel bottom and, you know, welded legs. and this bump bar and the wheel stands. yeah, i'm in the welding equipment business, so, i mean, this is definitely -- they're, like, bulletproof. to me, it just -- it looks like a quality product. >> actually, my arms are shaking 'cause i have to balance it so much. [ chuckles ] it's not good. oh, yeah, this is easy. you can't even tell. you could actually do it one-handed. well, actually, i'm a chiropractor [chuckles] so i would definitely, as a chiropractor, choose this over any other wheelbarrow out there. so, hands down, a winner over a regular wheelbarrow. i mean, i wouldn't even buy one of those if i had the choice to buy one of these. >> the worx aerocart is so versatile. it instantly transforms into a variety of useful tools. >> flip open the dolly flap,
