Design Enhancement Makes Georgia Buggy Easier To Manuever And Off-Load

Jescraft’s popular Georgia Buggy now features an improved handle design that makes the cart easier to push and empty, while also reducing strain to a user’s back and arms. By repositioning the handle to a height and angle that is more comfortable for the user, Jescraft has greatly reduced the upper arm motion and strength needed to tilt the cart upright for dumping as well as the amount of effort required to lift and propel the cart forward.

Manufactured in the U.S.A. of all-welded, heavy-gauge steel, Jescraft Georgia Buggies are built to withstand years of jobsite abuse. Equipped with oversized, industrial-style pneumatic tires, Jescraft Georgia Buggies are easy to push and maneuver over all types of terrain. The carts are available in two models – the JB-60, which has a 6-cubic-foot capacity and is narrow enough to pass through most doorways, and the slightly wider JB-80, which holds 8-cubic-feet of material. Originally designed to transport concrete, Georgia Buggies have become a popular alternative to wheelbarrows amongst landscapers, contractors and stable owners who use them to transport all kinds of heavy, bulky material. Unlike a typical wheelbarrow, a Georgia Buggy won’t tip over -- even when fully loaded -- and holds up to 33 percent more cubic feet of material.

Founded in 1946 and located in Bogota, New Jersey, Jescraft is a leading designer and manufacturer of material handling equipment and accessories for the concrete, drywall, stone, roofing and general construction markets. Additional information about the company can be found at or by calling the company toll-free at 800/524-1142.
