The only thing wrong with a three wheel cart is if you have to load it on a pick-up you need three(3) ramps or a ramp wide enough for the whole cart,also if the rear axle is not pretty wide when turning the cart has a tendency to tip..

I picked up this photo of a New Holland on a cart from someone that posted it on Harry's. I figure MAYBE one day i might be able to own a New Holland.
