Do You Know How Much Weight Can Your Shopping Cart Bear? This Guy Tests It Out

Are you afraid that you shopping cart can’t handle the brunt of your shopping spree?

The Hydraulic Press Channel recently tested the strength of a shopping cart in a crazy experiment. They started off by adding heavy steel pieces to the shopping cart. You can see the experiment in this video



The cart easily tolerated a weight of 1,015 pounds. However, it collapsed when another piece weighing 418 pounds was added to it.

Thus, the experiment revealed that the cart could sustain the weight somewhere between 1,015 pounds and 1433 pounds, which is incredible!

So, you might be safe stuffing your cart in a grocery store, but the next time you go shopping for heavy steel items, do check the weight limit that your shopping cart could endure.
