Wheelbarrow Reviews

by Tested_to_Destruction

A wheelbarrow is a useful tool - and a great labor saving device. The five best wheelbarrows, compared and reviewed.

A wheelbarrow comes in useful in many working environments - home improvements, gardening and landscaping, the construction industry and more.They're great for hauling rocks, soil, wood, bricks, mortar and just about anything that's easier to push than it is to physically carry from A to B.

Generally they're pretty affordable - especially the standard two wheeled wheelbarrows. If you're looking to purchase a motorized model you can expect to pay more but at least you know that they're a labor saving device and you're more likely going home after a days work with your back still in one piece.

The five best wheelbarrows are featured below - top selling products, awesome value for money and the best quality your money will buy.

Marathon Industries 70015 5-Cubic-Foot Poly Residential Yard Rover Wheelbarrow with Dual Pneumatic Air Filled Tires & Cushion Grip Handle

This is the best selling and most popular wheelbarrow - and comes in at under 70 dollars.It's easy to assemble out the box and once you've got it built up lightweight yet durable and feels strong enough to work all day long. The manufacture is a combination of a polyethylene bucket/tray, a strong tubular powder coated steel frame and a pair of pneumatic13" tires, which makes for a good quality barrow on the whole.

This is the one for general use - the tray is semi-shallow and won't hold large amounts of soil or materials so you will need to do more runs if you opt for this one. That said, it's a great all-rounder, a genuine workhorse and will stand up to regular use around the home and garden. Nicely put together, priced well, one to buy.

Marathon Industries 70013 5 Cubic Foot Poly Residential Yard Rover Pink Wheelbarrow With Dual Pneumatic Air Filled Tires & Cushion Grip Handle

This pink wheelbarrow is one for the hardworking ladies among us and just because it's pink doesn't mean it's not hardworking. The manufacture is typically robust - a poly tray, large pneumatic dual-hub tires and a white powder coated steel frame. The handle is looped and cushioned and when loaded (5 cubic ft capacity) it feels balanced and maneuverable.

It takes eight bolts to assemble out the box and it's surprisingly easy to load and dump from. The bucket's front angle aides removal of soil and materials and it's capacity for hauling materials is pretty impressive. It works, it's pink, it's user-friendly and on offer at a pretty good discount. A wonderful barrow and definitely one for the ladies.

This is the best wheelbarrow for using around the yard and garden. The 20" pneumatic tires are awesome - pushing this one around is an absolute breeze. The depth of the bucket is equally impressive and it's load capacity is 300lbs - enough for most backyard maintenance. The bucket is manufactured from polyethylene, the frame is the standard tubular steel and the whole design is balanced and well put together.

The looped handle and grip makes this one easy to push or pull, which will help with whatever you're hauling around the garden - and the tires just add to the balanced way in which it maneuvers from A to B. A great garden cart, a top barrow, years of use and easy to maintain and work with. Recommended buy.

Ames True Temper C6 6-Cubic-Foot Steel Tray Contractor Wheelbarrow

This is the best heavy duty wheelbarrow and up to industry standard. It's whole manufacture is solid, from tires to bucket to frame. The construction is a decent grade metal bucket, a steel frame with hardwood handles bolted on - and the single 16" pneumatic tire makes maneuvering a breeze. It's a 100% contractor's barrow and the best for hauling heavyweight materials such as rubble, bricks, stone and so on.

When loaded - a 6 cubic feet capacity - it feels reliably solid and you're only weighed down by what's inside. The cart itself moves easily enough, the tire seems up to rough terrain and providing you can handle a single-wheeled barrow, it won't tip and lose the contents. A well made model, built to last - and last, no nonsense manufacture and a recommended purchase for those in the construction industry.
