Handcarts: DUP Pioneer Museum

The have three handcart at the DUP museum.  I thought handcarts were sturdier and larger than those represented.  I think the ones used for treks, and museums are larger; but these are handcarts used originally.  I am not sure if any of the Martin Company survived--as all were left behind and the Saints entered the Valley in wagons.  I know they were built to have the same wheel base as wagons, but it looking at them, and comparing them to wagons, the appeared skinny to me.
