Folding Wheelbarrow Reviews

by Tested_to_Destruction

A folding wheelbarrow is a great labor saving tool to have around. Inexpensive and durable, the five best foldable wheelbarrows reviewed and compared.

A folding wheelbarrow is a rather handy labor saving device and though not best used for heavy duty use, they're great for gardening and landscaping tasks and light to medium tasks in general. They're lightweight, easy to store and relatively inexpensive to buy.

For the main they're durable, tougher than they look and are manufactured to a high standard. They're also UV resistant, a breeze to clean off and maintain and a good alternative to a standard metal or plastic wheelbarrow.

The five best folding wheelbarrows are featured below, all are best sellers, highly rated and will give a great return on their initial investment.

Allsop 28162 Wheel Easy LE Folding Yard Cart

This is the best folding wheelbarrow and will come for all those garden and yard jobs where you need something sturdy yet lightweight to haul pots, plants and soil around. It's manufactured to work hard yet store efficiently away between use and the design is incredibly user-friendly. The frame is a heavy duty powder coated steel and the barrow itself is an extremely strong fabric canvas - which is also coated with vinyl to prolong it's shelf life/usage.

The seams are reinforced and UV resistant, and single wheel is pneumatic and ridged, which allows for both good traction and easy handling on any terrain. The load weight is a pretty impressive 150lbs and if you want a collapsible wheelbarrow that carries more, there is a larger sized model available. A well made product and worth every cent.

Taylor Precision WB1 Green Living Folding Wheelbarrow

This folding wheelbarrow is quite innovative - the design allows you to lay it flat on the ground, which makes loading materials such as leaves and soil much easier. The frame is a durable tubular steel, enamel coated with comfort grip handles and the barrow bag is a tough anti-rip polypropylene construction.

The full load capacity is an adequate 250lbs and the single EVA molded wheel requires no real effort to maintain. It's easy to maneuver once full and when empty it's so lightweight it's ridiculous.

A good quality cheap collapsible wheelbarrow, well worth the purchase.

Allsop 29242 WheelEasy Folding Yard Cart

This is the heavy duty version of the first folding wheelbarrow featured at the start of this product comparison. It carries up to 300lbs in total weight and despite its increased load capacity, it remains incredibly lightweight and easy to handle/work with. It will haul lumber, rocks, large amounts of wet, heavy soil and just about anything else you can think of that you'd rather haul than carry.

It comprises the same quality manufacture - a tubular powder coated steel frame, a highly durable canvas fabric tray with reinforced UV resistant seams and a single pneumatic tire that's great for rough ground. It will lay flat for easier loading and the handles are both ergonomic and covered with a comfort grip layer. A top quality product, sold at a great bargain price of a little over 100 bucks.

Tipke 2100 Marine Fold-It Utility Cart

This is the best heavy duty large folding wheelbarrow/collapsible cart. The manufacture is a combination of an aluminum tray/barrow that has a fold-down panel for easier loading/unloading, a pair of pneumatic tires that will handle different types of terrain and a frame that is a mixture of tubular and welded flat-bar steel.

The engineering that's gone into its design is awesome - you will only appreciate the design, strength and load capacity once you've got one in your possession. The way it folds up and stores is a breeze, as well as incredibly innovative and the full load weight is equally impressive - 350lbs. A well constructed garden cart, quality from start to finish and well worth the initial investment.
