Hooray! This collapsible dolly is perfect for hauling your folk harp around. We would not suggest this for your pedal harp, but this compact dolly will make maneuvering your folk harp through the most congested of areas a lot easier. Weighing only 16 pounds, the Kart-a-Bag is a light and easy-to-use dolly which can carry up to a 300-pound load. 48 in height with an almost 16" x 13" base, the Kart-a-Bag comes with two bungee cords to help secure your folk harp. It is constructed of heavy-duty aluminum rods and double-thick chrome-plated steel wire, hand-welded for extraordinary strength. Solidly built, the Kart-a-Bag's telescoping handles can easily and quickly fold the dolly down to the size of 16" x 21". The two main wheels are 6" ball bearing recycled rubber wheels. An added feature of this wonderful cart is the rear platform. With two 3" swivel casters, the back platform may be folded down into a locked position to function as a 4-wheel dolly for added stability, as shown here with a Dusty Strings FH36 Harp. (Harp and case not included.) Our Kart-A-Bag carts are now custom-fitted with an improved extended handle with 2 rubber bike-type grips for comfort and easier maneuverability.

We do not recommend this cart for pedal harps or other very large lever harps, such as the Lyon & Healy Prelude or Troubadour.

Made in the U.S.A. with a 10-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects.

Do not leave your harp unattended on this, or any other harp cart.

Love My HarpKart!

The day I bought my Dusty Strings 36FHS, it was quite a big investment for me. I hesitated to add the Kart-a-Bag to my bill, but decided to just consider it part of my total "harp package". I'm so glad I did! I can carry my harp a short way, but for any distance farther than 150 feet I just get out my HarpKart. It sets up in three easy steps. Then I secure my harp snugly with the bungee cord straps and I'm ready to take it anywhere. The large wheels smoothly roll over almost anything. When I'm done, I quickly collapse the Kart into a compact shape that is easily stored out of sight. It's double-duty--my HarpKart even went to work with me one day to help store boxes of files!

Hurray for harps on wheels!

I am a professional harper, and have been for the last 14 years. I have carried my harp around for the last 25 years, always saying I was strong and could manage, never letting anyone else carry it in case they whacked it off something (and always believing that if you play it, you should carry it!). I admit I have had trouble with my right arm (I always carried it on my right shoulder), straining muscles and a bad back sometimes. But would never give in to getting help. I have a hard case, but I use it for planes mostly as it is a beast of a thing! So now after 25 years, I have given in! Okay, so I am now 7 months pregnant, and trying to keep gigging and teaching, and doing everything I can to keep busy, but I finally bought a trolley. And I LOVE IT!!! It's a dream to put up and take down, it's sturdy and I am assured the harp is safe, it travels over rough ground, gravel, tarmac, up and down pavements easily due to the smaller wheels at the back. It does add a bit of weight to the harp if you have to go up lots of stairs with it still attached. So I ask for help then, but it is easy to carry from the top end or the bottom end. And it's so fast to take off and put on, that I'm not finding that a problem at all. I actually wish I had bought one of these many years ago! Then I might not have such a muscly right arm!!! I recommend this trolley highly."

Great cart!

This cart is the best! It is easy to set up and take down. The extra wheels allow the harp to be up at an angle, making it much easier to get my harp through doors quickly by myself.

Great Cart!

I have used this cart for 20 years, in all situations as well as in the hospital. It has stood up very well, and I will order another one right this minute. One tip: I use "baggie ties" to attach a stainless steel baker's cooling rack to the platform, so harp legs do not slip through and get scratched.Also, when I unload in the hospital parking structure, I notice that all the med vendors stack their boxes on this very same cart, and we roll in together! Thanks, Sylvia!

Best travel cart ever!

I've had this cart for many years, and it is one of the best purchases I ever made. It is so sturdy it's still like new. Before I retired I toured constantly, carting my harp in a big wooden crate, and all my luggage, through many airports. All together, everything probably weighed about 200 pounds. It all strapped easily to the cart, and I could push it with my pinkie finger - it rolls that smoothly! The cart collapses to a very manageable size and goes right in the overhead compartment of airplane. When transporting in my car, I would leave the harp strapped to the cart and slide the whole assembly in and out of hatchback on my harp board. So easy!
