Italian term or phrase: CARRO A MANOVELLA
I know this is a cart with a handle, but this is a list of Leonardo da Vinci inventions, which seem to often have standardised names. I have found a few of his carts, but I cannot figure out which one this is. I cannot find "cart with handle" anywhere.
Does it have a standard translation?

Leonardo studia un sistema di trasmissione del moto all'assale delle ruote di un carro, funzione che oggi viene svolta dal differenziale.
