the wheel barrow is very sturdy and looks like it will last longer than most, but you have to keep in mind that with two wheels you have more traction., thus more arm power is needed.The pro is, you don't have to steady it. Also, when you go to dump out the contents, it will not completely dump out, due to the front bar. You have to go around a scrape out the remaining contents. Even when you turn it all the way over, the contents still want to stay in the bucket, due to the design. But all and all, I am staisfied with it, if it lasts longet than most. Guess it is just your preference.

Review 2 for 6.5 cu. ft. Plastic Wheelbarrow
I absolutely HATE this wheelbarrow
PostedMay 5, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Yes, I bought this wheelbarrow based on the excellent reviews. Yes, the tub is durable, but no more durable than any other plastic tub. It really lacks functionality. The way it is balanced makes it very difficult to push over to empty. Worse, is the metal bar across the front bottom of the tub, which makes it impossible to completely empty the tub. I finally replaced it with a 'normal' style wheelbarrow that is just as durable, but is much much more usable. WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY!
Cons: unable to completely empty tub, difficult to tip, expensive!
Purchased this wheelbarrow over a year ago and it underwent a tough summer of hauling mulch, crushed stone, and other yard debris. The wheelbarrow material makes it very light and even my 65 year old Mom does not have a problem moving it. Assembling the wheelbarrow can be very frustrating and it does take a long time. Make sure both people are strong for assembling, but once assembled it is completely worth it. I wish Home Depot would carry it already assembled or offer to assemble. I am thinking of purchasing a 2nd one to supplement. It is still going strong as it enters its second summer.
Pros: Functionality, Good Shape, Durable, Easy to Clean, Strong, Great Quality
Cons: takes a lot of patience to assemble, assembly is challenging
This wheelbarrow is awesome. They designed it for ease of movement and you can basically push it with very little effort, even when it is full. Great for the elderly and anyone one with physical disabilities that may have a problem with a regular wheelbarow. This is the second one I bought and I would never get another type of wheelbarow.
My wife needed a heavy duty 2 wheel barrow for her gardening. It rolls easily over the sloping terrain of our yard. It rolls easily under load but a bit harder than our other barrow when empty. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that its harder to dump completely than other barrows. It has a unique feature that it will stand on its nose for raking out or levering a big rock in. We've hauled rocks, rough fill, firewood, compost and heavy clay soil. It handled all loads with ease.
Assembly took some planning to align the holes of multiple parts to slide the bolts through. I was able to assemble it by myself.
Bought four wheelbarrows for the septage receiving station during freezing weather to move screenings. Excellent weight disbribution, 85% over ball bearing wheels to 15% on the steel frame handle bars for operator safety. The pour shape bucket allows easy and accurate dumping. The 6.5 cuft. bucket prevents over filling as the larger less expensive ones. Completely satisfied with these strong durable wheelbarrows.
I picked this because it was basically an extra large garden cart/wheelbarrow. The design of having the load's weight centered over the two wheels makes hauling dirt or whatever much easier than any standard wheelbarrow I've ever used. Dumping is easier with the front brace and there is a rear brace that functions as a stand to hold the wheelbarrow level. Plus the tub is made out of some sort of heavy duty recycled plastic, so it won't rust like my old ones. Assembly did take a little longer than what I anticipated due to keeping the holes in the frame lined up with the holes in the tub but everything worked out. You do have to inflate the tires, they are not solid. I did not have to re-drill or modify anything and all the parts were in the original box as expected. These cost more than some other models but (to me) are well worth the money.
This wheelbarrow is great, but you got to work for it. Poor quality control resulted in the holes in the tub being drilled in the wrong place. Because of this we ended up having to drill new holes and purchase larger washers to obscure the holes that were drilled incorrectly. If this happens to you too, be sure to call Home Depot and tell them you shouldn't be paying full price for what is ultimately a second quality item. With that said, if you are OK with a project and want a more stable wheelbarrow then the traditional ones with a single wheel, then this is the one for you.
Feel I owe it to Home Depot to redo my review. This is a great value at the sale price. It makes most any job easier and safer (very little chance of tipping). Sturdy and well designed--will last a long time--and the load is balanced so you can go up a pretty steep grade without a lot of muscle. Reasonably light weight. Wheels even has sealed ball bearings. Just take assembly one step at a time--you can do it by yourself but two more hands would be nice. BUY IT!!!
This item was not cheap, but the best investment we have made in a long time. Load this thing up and walk away with it. Pushes so easy my 95-year old mother-in-law could do it. It's about time we can get what we pay for. Thanks
Pros: Multi Use, Functionality, Durable, Strong, Great Quality
The lawn cart arrived in a timely manner. We did an inventory count prior to assembly, as previously suggested. Was only short one washer; no problem as we have a supply. Also, as suggested, we had two people for the assembly. Good suggestion and makes assembly go smoothly. Used the lawn cart next day to haul crushed rock and it worked great; was durable and easy to handle.
Recommend at least 2 for assembly. Bolts need to be held on the inside of the wheelbarrow and tightened on the outside. Well designed barrow. Weight is over the wheels so operator isn't lifting as much.
We bought this wheelbarrow to help muck out some water on our property that had been accumulating sediment. Assembly was reasonably easy and straightforward. Quality seemed to be pretty good at first, but after two weeks of use the entire frame is rusting!
I bought this item for Christmas for my husband. It was easy to put together. I was amazed at how easy it was to move around. I put 3 kids in it, 8, 11 and 13 and had no problem moving them from one room to the next. The wheels are great for the added weight! Love it!
This wheelbarrow is precisely as advertised. Its tub has a large capacity and has easily handled loads of cut tree rounds, concrete blocks, and other bulky and heavy loads. In use, the wheelbarrow is stable, thanks to its two wheels, and resists toppling over. I would recommend this product to anyone in need of a large-capacity garden cart/wheelbarrow.
