Description Testimonials
Trailer / Tires

The cart rests on a D.O.T. Highway approved heavy duty trailer (title included) with baked enamel finish. Bolted and welded construction allows for a super strong structure and will give you many years of use. The leaf spring suspension system allows you to tow it safely at freeway speeds. The tires are standard size 4.8" x 8".

Power Source

The triple (3) commercial burners in the full size steam table are powered by LP Propane Gas. Three control knobs are standard and allow you to cook more evenly. Burners are lined with holes for even heating and wind resistance. BensCarts uses the best equipment on the market to ensure faithful service from your cart. Under the bread box is a hidden storage area for two full size 20# propane tanks. Many states require you have two propane tanks in case you run out of gas in one, you have a back up. No exposed tanks makes for a safer cart and a professional appearance. A single gas line runs from the burners to the propane storage area and allows you to hook up one tank. A high end LP regulator is included with an easy twist on/off connection.

Steam table

The steam table can accommodate various size pots with lids. You can use the steamer for hot dogs, buns, chili, cheese, sauerkraut and more. Comes standard with an almost double sized steam table which includes; One half size perforated pan for steaming, two 1/4th size pans for heating cheese or chili, a 1/3rd size direct heat pan for boiling or cooking and a 1/2 size pan for boiling or cooking. Includes lids and a full size spillage pan that holds water to be heated for steam. (see video above for details) All pans and lids are carry the NSF mark.

Sinks and Water System

The cart comes standard with 4 stainless steel sinks with a hot and cold pressurized water system with no clog drains, a 5 gallon clear water tank and a 7.5 gallon tank for waste water. You can select 1, 2, 3 or 4 sinks at no additional cost. If you want less than 4 sinks, please note this in the comments section during ordering. Sinks areapprox. 5”X 6” and 4” deep. Water system, including all fittings and copper and PEX lines are NSF certified. Choosing less sinks will enlarge sinks at no additional cost. Waste water tank is fixed under the cart body and out of view. It includes a valve for easy draining and comes standard with back flow prevention. Pressure is supplied by the commercial 12v pump. (battery not included) Hot water is supplied via a copper tube that is over the burners, heat from the burners provides the hot water. For more details and information on a continuous hot water system CLICK HERE Water system is vented and is set up to be sanitized easily as required.

Tow bar

BensCarts sets itself apart by going above and beyond with this fully removable tow bar with a D.O.T. approved 1 7/8" ball coupler and two safety chains. Simply unclip the pin and remove the tow bar and stow away underneath the cart. This allows you and your customers to move safely around the cart and allows for better working conditions. Includes tag frame.

Wheel Leveling Jack

Leveling posts are included for balance and stability. They slide away easily for transport.

Pressurized Water System

With your 12v. lawnmower or motorcycle battery you can power the included pump that will give you pressurized water. This on demand pump knows when you open the faucet and comes on.

Condiment Table

You will love this super functional condiment table. It allows your customers to fix their own dogs while you serve dogs from the front. Saves you time and headaches. Plus, we have added a hidden ice tray under the condiment table so that your recessed stainless steel pans sit on a bed of ice. Condiment Pans and lids are included. Has a drain opening, but we recommend using freezer gel packs instead of ice.

Meat/Beverage Cooler

This fully insulated cooler has a hinged lid for easy access. It is rated to hold ice for up to 5 days in 90 degree temperatures. Most vendors don't use this cooler for drinks and store extra dogs and condiments here. You will always need a large cooler for drinks, my freestanding cooler holds 300 drinks.


As a D.O.T. approved trailer, our carts include stop, turn and tail lights. Wiring harness includes a standard 4 wire flat connection.

Bread box storage

The oversized bread box rivals others in size. Holding up to 30 bags of 12ct buns and other necessities like napkins, foil and dry condiments. It is solid stainless steel and includes a shelf for a more organized system. Instead of using plexiglass doors, BensCarts upgrades all doors to stainless steel for free, which allows you to keep your supplies hidden from customers view. Plexiglass fades and yellows over time getting these fine hairline cracks and streaks that can make your cart look nasty and old. Stainless steel doors allow for a professional look years from now. Each cart is equipped with two doors for easy access from either side of the cart.

Stow Case

Below the bread box, depending on how many propane tanks you have is extra storage space accessible from either side of the cart.


The 9 ft. market umbrella is huge. Allowing for some shade on those hot days. It stands out like nicely for visibility. The umbrella is fabric and its structure is metal to hold up to moderate wind and use. Comes in Red or Yellow. See picture on our facebook page.


A stainless steel grill is available as an upgrade. All states don't allow grills on carts, for details see options tab above.

Rear Rack

A rear rack is an available upgrade and allows for a 2nd onboard cooler for drinks. Solid steel and comes with straps for securing during travel. See options tab above for more details.


Before buying a cart, do your due diligence. Make sure you buy a cart that meets your states codes and requirements. I don't want you to buy a cart that you can't use. Simply download or email the cart brochure to your health department and get pre-approved before purchasing. For full details see our free training section.

Love the cart April 23, 2014
Reviewer: Daniel Roane from Havre de Grace, MD United States  
Only issue I had was with shipping. My street is narrow so it was delayed.  It must have gotten damaged while waiting. The bread box is dented and umbrella is damaged. Other than that I love it all. Should be past hd after friday and I can make you proud.

5/5 Worth The Money September 5, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Bakersfield, CA United States  
My health dept took longer to review & okay the plans for my cart then Ben took to get it to me on the other side if the country.

I past my health insoection with 0 infractions first time.
Damn near impossible in this town.

The health inspector said, "This is the coolest cart I've seen. I wish my job was always this easy."

We cleared $200 in 2 hours on our first night on the downtown bar sceen.  The Big Dog was great. The cart itself  drew a crowd of lookie-loos and most bought at least a dog.

Now that I have secured a prime spot accross from the courthouse, me and my Big Dog are ready for the big time!
Ben's training videos greatly helped me prepare for the business of selling dogs and making money.

Rough start, great finish August 20, 2012
Reviewer: David Street from Eagle, ID United States  
After ordering the Big Dog Cart we had a few issues with parts missing. That was the bad part, the good part was the way Ben handled the issue. He didn't hesitate to send us the parts and was very professional in solving our issues. We are still working through an issue with the city of Boise to get our final papers but the cart seems to function well and looks great! We're ready to get this project going...

Ben and Keith August 15, 2012
Reviewer: Randy Fox - Foxy's Franks from Cortland , NY United States  
I first want to say, I was in the sales game for MANY years. So I am well acquainted with all the typical sales tactics out there. Ben and Keith are NOT what you would expect in a salesman. There was NEVER any pressure, not 1 question unanswered. They have been more than available throughout the process and to be quite honest, some of the nicest folks I have had the pleasure to do business with !! As busy as they truly are, they have and continue to be right there when I am lost to answer even the silliest of questions !! Ben and Keith, kudos to YOU !! Foxy's Franks thanks you so very much for being men of integrity and for truly loving to help others like myself who have a dream. I can tell in my heart that you guys truly DO want to see everyone become successful !! You ROCK !!! \m/
