What others are saying . . 

To say that the WHaTS eased my workload is an incredible understatment. - from Quality-Handtool-Review.com

I did quite a bit of work today with the 2 wheel configuration and am really impressed with the versatility and effectiveness for rock removal.  The claw attachment can be a real asset with the larger rocks I found.  The ability to tilt the unit vertically to sink the prongs beside a rock is really a good feature.  I did not need a prybar all day.  Pulling rocks was almost fun today!"             -   Murray Beidler - New York


I have been using the rolling lever (with clamp assembly) all week since I have been home from work during the COVID-19 pandemic.  To me,  this is one of the best tools I have ever used because it enables me to move large rocks and other objects by myself without having to purchase or rent a bobcat or tractor with a bucket. It is the perfect compliment to my ATV.  I was moving rocks that were not only way too large for me to move by myself but also too large for my 4 wheel drive ATV to pull with a piece of ply wood and an aircraft carrier cable up hill.  The ATV was doing wheelies when I tried to pull them with the cable attached to the back rack behind the seat.  When I tried to use the front of the ATV without the plywood I started spinning wheels and tearing up the yard.  I was able to use the rolling lever to inch these rocks up onto the sheet of plywood behind my ATV.  It also enabled me to strategically place these large rocks at the base of my new rock wall around my gazebo in the middle of the front yard.  I didn’t’ want to tear up my yard or my gravel driveway by pulling the rocks uphill without the sheet of plywood. I live on the side of a mountain.  My only regret is that I did not order the attachment bar to turn the tool into a trailer.  This would have been wonderful for the rocks that I could pry up and lift by myself off of the ground.  I will be using the tool for building future rock walls and for cleaning up the fallen trees and brush on the 4 acres around my house.  I have large flower pots to move around the yard as well.  I also have a trailer that needs to be moved to my truck so that I can go get gravel to continuously repair my gravel driveway all year long.  This tool will be perfect for me to go into the woods and get rocks and other debris without tearing up the woods and leaving a large footprint.  This tool sells itself for DYI people like myself.  I wish that I invented it!

Thanks for inventing a tool that I will be using for many years ahead!      ~ Tony P.  ~ Virginia



Received the WHaTS in good order yesterday. (Felt sorry for the UPS man who had to carry the box up my muddy drive.) It was superbly easy to assemble which is rare in this day and age. And a lot sturdier then even the pictures on the website imply - again, rare in this day and age. I think you are also very price competitive - I looked at like-products and the result was flimsy, single-purpose products at the same price or more than yours. I moved a couple of rocks yesterday and I moved more rock in five minutes than I would have in 30-minutes in my wheelbarrow. And, more importantly, I moved rock I never could have in my wheelbarrow. So thank you and well done for designing such a superb tool!   - Henk Groenewald - Founder of TheBrandEcologist



"BEST TOOL EVER.  A LOT OF THOUGHT WENT INTO MAKING IT."      ~ Guy Rosi in Homer, Alaska ~ North American Survival Systems dealer


The WHaTS has been invaluable. I don't use it very often, but when I do it's for something that I couldn't accomplish without it (other than hiring out a tractor). The crew that worked on restoring our barn this past November used it constantly while they were working.



I have been using the WHaTS a lot the past 3 days (it came in just one day).  The only trouble is that it is no longer shiny and new looking. It has some respectable scratches and mud.  I have not hooked it up to the BCS yet. I wanted to take pictures with the WHaTS being brand new, but I felt I needed to get started on my terraced garden right away. The only trouble I have had is the optional clamp rubbing on the third tire during transport. I just take it off. You were right about the steeper bank. I have had little trouble with soft ground.  You have invented a wonderful tool. I can see how it has great value for rescue. I find it fascinating that a balanced heavy load feels lighter than with nothing being carried.  Thank you again for your help.  ~  Lawrence Kerr, MD ~ founder of Clickcare.com

Even without consulting the easy to follow video direction on the WHaTS website, I was able to quickly get the axle, wheels, "fender", and correct pieces assembled in  order to put the system to it's first and most basic task...           from Quality-Handtool-Review.com

Unusual Wheelbarrows for easier hauling

I'll present the biggest and most rugged versions first, then move on to the lighter home versions of these specialized lifters and haulers.

This first one is made in Vermont by the WHaTS Company, which is an abbreviation for Wheeled Hand Tool Systems. Their carts are like the Transformer robots of the wheelbarrow world. By swapping around a few parts you can use it to haul everything from firewood to lumber to barrels to people, or to do jobs like pulling fence posts!    (click link for more)

We have used the WHaTS for ripping shrubs and stumps out of the ground by the root.  We have carried at least 40 16’ 6x6 post, multiple sheets of decking from A to B, thousands of pounds of stone, and at least 10 kids 😊 .     Nick Early - Arkansas


“Our community partners used the WHaTS system for a variety of functions while working in a diversity of city settings. They hauled debris, removed stumps and transported a large quantity of mulch bags, among other uses. They report a decrease in effort and increase in productivity when using the WHaTS. Functions and conversions are easy, the system navigates smoothly over different and at times bumpy terrain, and volunteer time is maximized on projects. There are a variety of uses that are relevant for a wide range of jobs. We were happy to offer it to community partners knowing it would maximize productivity of their volunteers for any project.”

– Noah Smock, Executive Director, Baltimore Community ToolBank

"Since the system is rugged and versatile, it will adapt and remain in useful service for generations" 


I am renovating a very old home which has a big piece of property that needs extensive landscaping (mostly hard scraping with boulders, rock walls) and cleaning up of old trees and brush.  The guys on my job who do a lot of the rock work love the whats machine. I told them you seemed to be an entrepreneur up in Vermont who does most of this by himself.  They were impressed!    ~ David Milne ~ Wellesley, MA
All in all, I must say that I am very pleased with this product. Definitely has exceeded my expectations, even with just a few days of use. After the package arrived, and just a few minutes of easy assembly, my wife and I got right to work cleaning up a small section of our land that is difficult to access with even a small tractor. We have pulled large invasive plants, moved loads of rocks and debris, and hauled in building materials for a privacy fence that will mark the boundary of this area. The tool really excels at the tasks it was designed for. Extremely rugged and easy to maneuver. We saved countless hours of work, and were able to do it ourselves without lots of help and big equipment. I love how simple and uncomplicated a device this is - great ingenuity.. Looking forward to many more years of productive use of our WHaTS!     Joe Covey - Arkansas
The initial test runs in moving rocks exceeds our expectations. We are very happy and feel quite confident that now we can move ahead with landscaping around our new home.     Jyoti in Ontario
