I have both a Brushy Mt and a Mann lake cart for moving supers. I modified them both recently so I could haul six empty boxes out to the bees across the pasture. I put pictures on my web site:
I became familiar with a wagon-type cart through work. I found one last year at Lowe's and purchased it for under $100. It has drop down side-boards. It is wide enough to hold supers crosswise. and it is rated to hold well over a 1000 lbs with numatic tires. It came with two trays for yard tools which work well for hive tools/ equipment. I have found that the open-wire bottom is beneficial for setting supers on and allowing bees an exit when forcing bees out for removing hive parts. With ratchet straps, I can put a half ton of stuff on it... no garantee that I could pull it, but it comes with an alternative hitch tongue for fixing to a mower or 4-wheeler.
Here is a picture of one.

I've got the same cart as in your picture. Bought it at Walmart on year end clearance for $45. Probably the best $45 I've spent in the last 3 months. Beats the heck out of a wheelbarrow and holds quite a bit. Mine also attaches to a mower or atv with an extra attachment. The sides also drop down. These types of carts are indespensable in my opinion.
I think mine came from Lowies, like Waya's, or Homie Depot, paid $59. Yeah, it has been a great help but I may not get as much use out of it since I got my Gator
Well, I guess I could pull it behind the Gator...
That is exactly like mine. Except mine is yellow. I am going to bee-stripe it sometime with black.
I am thinking about fixing a shoot to go from Grandma's bagger-mower t allow it to be used as a catch, thus lengthening the time between dumps. It works fairly well as a sawhorse, holding a lot of materials and tools.
