  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Cart 
  a  vehicle  moving  on  wheels,  and  usually  drawn  by  oxen  (2  Sam. 
  6:3).  The  Hebrew  word  thus  rendered,  _'agalah_  (1  Sam.  6:7,  8), 
  is  also  rendered  wagon"  (Gen.  45:19).  It  is  used  also  to  denote 
  a  war-chariot  (Ps.  46:9).  Carts  were  used  for  the  removal  of  the 
  ark  and  its  sacred  utensils  (Num.  7:3,  6).  After  retaining  the 
  ark  amongst  them  for  seven  months,  the  Philistines  sent  it  back 
  to  the  Israelites.  On  this  occasion  they  set  it  in  a  new  cart, 
  probably  a  rude  construction,  with  solid  wooden  wheels  like  that 
  still  used  in  Western  Asia,  which  was  drawn  by  two  milch  cows, 
  which  conveyed  it  straight  to  Beth-shemesh. 
 
  A  "cart  rope,"  for  the  purpose  of  fastening  loads  on  carts,  is 
  used  (Isa.  5:18)  as  a  symbol  of  the  power  of  sinful  pleasures  or 
  habits  over  him  who  indulges  them  (See  {CORD}.)  In 
  Syria  and  Palestine  wheel-carriages  for  any  other  purpose  than 
  the  conveyance  of  agricultural  produce  are  almost  unknown.
