When my family recently camped on the southern shores of Lake Michigan, we made daily walks from our campsite down a wooded trail that led to a boardwalk, which eventually led to the beach. We had a lot of beach gear, including a pop-up shelter, a folding blanket, a utility tote picnic basket, and plenty of buckets, shovels, and other beach toys. My parents, who were camping with us, let us use their folding utility cart they had brought along to haul all of our stuff. It made the walk much more pleasant, and its extra-wide wheels made it somewhat easier to pull our stuff through the sand.
My parents remarked that they take their folding cart many places, including recently to an air show where they had a long walk from the parking area to the viewing field. It was helpful for them to load their folding cart with their lawn chairs, water bottles, and other gear for the day.
A folding cart has one big advantage over a traditional wagon made of metal or plastic, and that is portability. Folding carts are a lot easier to pack in a vehicle trunk so you can take them out whenever you need them: to carry groceries, work gear, outdoor toys, picnic food, or whatever you need to haul.
For the last few years, Aldi has sold a multipurpose folding cart.
What We Know:
The Adventuridge Folding Multipurpose Cart (Product Code: 700584) cost $49.99 at the time of publication. That’s a lot less than what most folding carts go for on Amazon.
This is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store gets one shipment, and once they sell out, that’s it unless Aldi decides to bring the cart back at some point. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that aren’t in stock at your local store.
If you miss out on buying the cart this time, Aldi is known to sell folding carts during the summer. Aldi sold this cart for $39.99 in the summer of 2020 and 2021.
Here’s more information about this year’s cart, according to Aldi:
- Folding design for easy storage
- Telescoping handle for easy turning
- Adjustable handle height
- Large cart perfect for transporting groceries
- Mesh pocket for increased storage
- Dual cupholders keep drinks close by
- Heavy sturdy steel frame
- Strong polyester fabric for durability
- Versatile use
- Weight capacity: 150 lbs.
- Open dimensions: 32.68″ x 19.69″ x 21.26″
We don’t know if this year’s cart comes with any kind of warranty, but the 2021 cart had a two-year warranty.
What We Don’t Know:
We haven’t yet tried this folding cart, so we don’t know how easily it assembles, how well it works, or how sturdy it is. We write open threads so readers can talk about their experiences with Aldi products.

I have bought 2 of these and had to return both. Same problem, one of the front wheels will not turn when installed. Upon inspection, seems as if one front wheel shaft is slightly bigger then the other and that might be the problem. I tried calling Adventuridge, thinking they could just send a new wheel. However I could not talk with customer service and voice mail kept cutting me off.
If you’re having difficulty contacting the company that services the warranty, try emailing Aldi directly. They were a big help to us when a warranty provider was unresponsive for us with a different product. https://www.aldi.us/en/contact/
I came looking to see if anyone else had wheel problems. 3 of the wheels popped all the way on. Wheel #4 seems like it has an obstruction keeping it from popping on all the way. Tried to use it as is, but causes the other wheel to float bc it’s not level 🙁
I bought one and was so excited until I tried it and I have the same problem – one of the rear wheels does not move. I hope they will take it back because it is too hard to use like this.
I just bought one (not seeing this review.) I can’t figure out how to keep it from collapsing and I’m not sure what they consider the front or rear on the cart itself. In afraid to install the wheels after reading this review because it looks like they can’t be removed once they’re installed…
Now I’ve tried installing the wheels and they don’t even go into the squares holes…
I see the problem now is that the rear wheels don’t turn at all! This product needs to have the same front wheels also on the rear for this thing to work. Although the front wheels don’t turn consistently either. It’s poorly designed. It’s needs to have a rotating axis below the place where the wheels are installed for the wheels to properly work. Very frustrating! Hourly Aldi will fix this issue fur everyone who bought this cart
I have bought two and I guess I am the standout because both are amazing. I am disabled and they have helped me significantly in being able to buy groceries and bring them into my apartment building by myself. Also taking out trash and recycling. If I’m not mistaken the wheels by the handle are supposed to rotate while the other wheels are not supposed to rotate and I have had no problems with them working. When I put the first one together I did not understand and I accidentally put one of the wheels in the wrong place and it took a while but I figured out how to get it off and put it in the right place. They can handle a lot of weight. The first one I bought in 2020 and I use it regularly. It folds up easy or I can even just lift it straight into my car and when I do grocery pickup they load right into the wagon. We actually had a fire in my building and I had the wagon sitting by the door so when they let us into gather what belongings we needed for the night we had to be out of the building I was able to just throw my stuff in there and pull it out to my car unlike everyone else who was just trying to carry everything in their hands. I bought the second one in summer 2022 to use around the apartment for cleaning and moving stuff I figured it would be useful for me to have two of them and in case one goes at one point I would have a backup. Now I use both of them regularly for different things and again zero issues whatsoever
