About this deal

Wheelbarrows can obviously be used to transport materials over short distances. This can be sand, cement, compost, soil, mulch, gravel, paving stones, and just about anything else as long as the wheelbarrow, and yourself, are strong enough to haul it. If you’ve already shopped around a little bit for your wheelbarrow, you will have noticed that there is no standard size. When searching online, the size of a wheelbarrow is usually right there in the description as it is thought of as one of the main things people want to know, and rightly so.

Again, whether you should buy a plastic or metal wheelbarrow will come down to your own personal needs. For shifting heavy loads, you are better off with a metal model as they tend to be much stronger and more durable than their plastic counterparts, but they are usually more expensive (the good ones anyway). There’s also the issue with rust and corrosion, and although this problem can be contained a bit by getting a galvanised barrow like the one we featured from Walsall Wheelbarrows, it will eventually get scratched off with regular use. Then there is the capacity of the wheelbarrow. This is often shown in litres, such as 75 litres, or 85 litres as in the case of the Draper 85L metal barrow. It could also be shown in a maximum weight load in either kilograms or pounds, and is sometimes shown in both litres and maximum weight. The maximum weight advertised isn’t always accurate though, so take it with a pinch of salt. The one in this photo was advertised as being able to hold over 160kg, but when we tested it, we thought different: Wheelbarrow suggests it can handle 160kg but from testing I would strongly disagree!!! Life saver, can get everything and more in this, meaning only one trip to the feild, one very happy pony owner

If the tray of the wheelbarrow is filled unevenly, it will no doubt wobble and make it harder for you to keep it steady when you lift and move it, and this usually ends up with the whole thing tipping over. Again, taking smaller loads can help, but ensuring that any load is well spread out and balanced is the best thing to do, and if you have to put more weight in one place, have it towards the front. There are a few ways of looking at size though. Firstly, there are the actual dimensions of the wheelbarrow- height, width, etc. and these are obviously very important when you think about storage space in the garage, getting the barrow in and out of the shed door and through gates, and just generally manoeuvring it around. Trying to deftly move a huge wheelbarrow around a very small and narrow garden isn’t going to be fun, so you might want something smaller like the Crazy gadget model. I still have to say that it can’t compete with the pneumatic tyres found on Draper and DJM wheelbarrows, but they are better than expected, and would deal with rolling over screws, nails, and other sharp objects without issue. That’s something you can’t always say about pneumatic tyres, and have you ever got a flat on a fully loaded 80+ litre wheelbarrow? It’s not fun! Pros Arrived on time. Lovely big product as discribed. Have given 4 stars because it had a few sharp edges when putting together so you have to be careful.Would buy again from this company. Very happy with this product

Another thing to look out for when it comes to wheels, is the quality of the bearings used, as this will directly affect the performance of the wheels. Not only do good bearings ensure a smooth roll, but it can also affect the durability of the wheels, especially under heavier loads. What can I use a wheelbarrow for? Choosing a wheelbarrow that I would recommend for allotments wasn’t an easy task. You see, there are just so many variables that come into it. Different people grow different things, and perform different tasks on their allotments, so choosing a ‘one-size-fits-all’ model was pretty much impossible. There were also some issues with bolts and holes lining up, but with a bit of help we got it assembled in the end. On the plus side, the pneumatic tyres are really good quality for the price, and I think that those, and the other pros we mentioned, outweigh the cons. Pros We gave the Walsall Wheelbarrows, 85 litre, galvanised model our vote as the best one out there for builders due to the right combination of maximum possible load, manoeuvrability, and hardiness. After giving it a lot of thought, I figured that I’d choose something that was big enough to handle medium sized loads, but not so big that it wouldn’t fit in the greenhouse. Then I thought about people whose greenhouses or sheds are already full, and that would mean leaving the wheelbarrow outside, so being weather resistant was another factor.I guess I’d say that if your garden or work area is relatively easy to traverse, or if you are pretty fit and don’t mind using a bit of extra effort to move the wheelbarrow, then puncture-proof tyres could save you a potential headache. For those of you who might be a little longer in the tooth, or just have lumpy gardens to work on, the smoothness of pneumatic wheels can’t be beat. Records the default button state of the corresponding category & the status of CCPA. It works only in coordination with the primary cookie. Another thing to think about with two wheeled wheelbarrows is the width from wheel to wheel. Why is this important? Well, it might not be for some people but if you intend to push the barrow up a ramp, let’s say into a skip or a raised bed, that ramp will have to be wide enough for both wheels. I recently saw a comment from a customer that mirrored my own thoughts about how this product could be improved, and that was with some kind of drainage plug. I understand that for moving compost and similar you need a solid bottom, but that also means rain water can build up in there, and the high sides make it harder to tip it out without laying it down on its side. Some way to remove that water easily would be a nice addition in the future. Pros Very nicely built product but you require quite a bit of strength to push the tubes together and a mallet to make them fit tightly. Nice big wheel with two positions (which seems a little unnecessary). I would recommend this product.
