From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
      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.
