AbstractA wheeled hand cart for use with a wet/dry utility vacuum cleaner drum is disclosed. A pair of wheel frames are mounted to the drum in spaced relationship to each other along a lower outer periphery of the drum. Each wheel frame has a horizontally extending passageway and a vertically extending channel that intersects and extends across each horizontally extending passageway. An upright handle section is positioned within the vertically extending channel of each wheel frame and has a transverse opening which is in alignment with the horizontally extending passageway of each wheel frame. Horizontally extending passageways of the spaced wheel frames are in alignment with one another to receive a wheel axle extending therethrough and also through the transverse openings of the upright handle sections. The wheels are mounted on the wheel axle for wheeled movement of the hand cart. A handle interconnects the upright handle sections to facilitate movement of the drum by the wheeled hand cart. The interconnecting handle and upright handle sections are also associated relative to the drum and an overlying drum cover in order to provide a stable and secure mounting of the wheeled hand cart relative to the drum.
