The new Scout Cart is here. The SCV3 features a lower tray for moving boxes, bottled water, and crates, in addition to the sturdy folding frame and spacious upper and lower baskets customers love. This new version is also engineered to allow easy replacement of parts that will wear overtime, such as the left and right rear wheel arms and the lower basket push button mechanism. As a result, we’ve expanded the lifetime of each cart.
We will begin shipping these carts to eager customers July 19, 2019. The new carts are available in Black with green accents and in Silver with green accents and have an introductory rate of $299. Shipping is free. Read our reviews to learn more about why people love the Scout Cart.
New SCV3 replacement parts will be available for purchase on our website by the end of July. With proof of purchase from an authorized Scout Cart dealer, our warranty covers these parts for one year. Most of them are also compatable with the SCV1.
Replaceable parts include:
- Bottom basket press button mechanism,
- Left rear wheel arm,
- Right rear wheel arm,
- Upper basket latch and housing
- Foot brake
- 7-inch front swivel wheel with rubber tire (fits left-side and right-side)
- 10-inch back wheel with rubber tire (fits left-side and right-side).
Don’t Carry those Boxes
Now there’s no reason to haul cases of water and heavy boxes from the car to the office. By adding the lower tray to the SCV3, we have created a more versatile tool. Attach the tray to the base of the cart where the lower basket locks into place, and start wheeling awkward items like those back-breaking 50-pound bags of salt and pea gravel.
Price Increase Due to New Tariffs
You may have noticed that the Scout Cart price has increased. This is a direct result of the 25% tariff recently imposed by the US government on $250 billion worth of products imported from China. Our manufacturing partner is located in southeast China and Scout Carts are among the products affected by the tariffs.
We have searched for suppliers and manufacturers within the United States to build our folding cart frames and baskets. However, quotes received from domestic suppliers and manufacturers have been cost prohibitive, unfortunately.
Basket Liners Arrive in August
We will have beautiful basket liners for both the upper basket and the lower basket available for purchase from our website in late August. These liners will protect basket contents and provide more storage capacity. See more about the Scout Cart on Facebook and Instagram.
