welder cart opinons

Recommended Posts

Hello all.  I've got an older Onan generator/welder similar to this: image.jpeg.34ad4091e02db5ab28b56896795807f1.jpeg that's on a cart with 4" dia metal wheels.  Great for concrete floors, but I no longer have that shop, and will most likely end up with a shop with dirt floors. 
I'm thinking about getting a Harbor Freight 1000 lb lawn cart with pneumatic wheels.

I'm wondering if it'll be too: (a) top heavy, and if so, would it be too difficult to widen the wheelbase or (b) too heavy in general and if so would it be too difficult to reinforce the structure?
Any thoughts/suggestions? 
Thanks

I can't get you a picture of mine but I made an axle and added two 10 inch solid wheels (non pneumatic no worry about flats) from HF and a pair of folding handles to pick up the front to move it (like a wheel barrow) It worked well for me.
