Originally built with no frills for those states that don’t require all the extras, the Cash Cow has become hugely popular. It’s big and has room to grow, with many available options and upgrades you can stay within budget and be up and running in no time. It’s built like a tank and is bigger than any cart on the market for the money. It is a Cash Cow. Read below included features.  Sinks/Water System Not Included.

Electric Cart: 

Now you can choose the electric cart option during checkout.  This only effects the Steam Table.  Not available on the double steam table option.  Now you can take your cart indoors with this option.  Simply plug into any 110v electrical outlet.  If electric option is selected the cart will not have propane burners.  It’s an either or type thing.  Enjoy!


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 dual (2) commercial burners in the full size steam table are powered by LP Propane Gas. Dual 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.

tow bar:

The tow bar hitch is D.O.T. approved and equipped with a 1 7/8″ ball coupler with two safety chains.

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 large steam table which includes; Three 1/3 size NSF pans and lids and a full size spillage pan.

Wheel Leveling Jack:

A leveling post is included, this allows you to level the cart and slides out of the way for towing.


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. Umbrella comes in Red or Yellow.

Sinks and Water System: Not Included (see options tab above)

Because some states don’t require a water system we offer the Cash Cow both ways. With and without sinks and a water system. Click options above for pricing on the water system upgrade if you are required to have a water system and sinks.


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

Meat/Beverage Cooler:

Offered as a free item with the water system upgrade only. See options tab above.


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.
