Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FloridaKes Seems sturdy enough, though if you're tall, this maybe a bit frustrating to use.
Shipped in two boxes and assembled without too much effort. As some have mentioned, they provided carriage bolts for use in round holes. The only issue I had with that is with two bolts that go through the tray and into the handles. They're holding, but the heads aren't seating and left sticking out a bit, so the shovel catches onto them as you're digging material out of the wheelbarrow. Perhaps a couple of whacks with a hammer will get them to seat further.
Oh, as far as frustrating to use for taller folks. I'm 6' 5" and when I'm pushing the wheel barrow, the front wheel guard sticks out and down so much that it's constantly catching on anything sticking up from the ground.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Richard Seems like good HD wheelbarrow. Have not used it yet.
Assembled fairly easily. AS noted above seems like good quality. I have not used or abused it yet to see how it holds up. Replacing 45 year old wheel barrow that gave me outstanding service. Now completely delapidated mostly from the harsh Florida sun. New unit will stay in the garage.

This is a sturdy wheelbarrow. Easy to assemble. Yes costs more, but it is solid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SRC Very good, but could easily be better!
Ok this seems to be an outstanding example of this ancient piece of equipment called a wheelbarrow! I liked the bearings enough that I upgraded my old wheelbarrow to bearings within a couple days.
This wheelbarrow could be better however! My wooden handles where not made out of top grade wood and came rough with quite a few knots in places that make me a bit nervous. They seem to be a bit oversized so we're probably OK, but it could be better!
I suppose it could be my imagination, but these tires seem to have gotten cheaper over the years and I immediately upgraded to a Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire - 4.80/4.00-8 - Load Range C (745 lbs. capacity) which feels like a real tire and should hold up to the weather and the wear and tear for many years!
Time will tell, but I expect this wheelbarrow be around for many years!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JOHN Easy to use with heavy loads
The Jackson Wheelbarrow is very well made. Sturdy wooden handles, durable tire, and has and excellent shape of pan. It is easy to clean out after hauling loads of concrete and due to the depth of the pan no spilling of the concrete occurs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JerryK Bought this for my boy and his new house...
Have used one exactly like this for about forty years. Folded tray, real ball bearing axle, pump up tire. Mixed a lot on concrete in it thru the years, hauled a lot of dirt, built like a tank. Hope he is as happy with his forty years from now as I am... ' Just ' a wheelbarrow... but a good one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jennbarrowbuyer Nothing flimsy here!
After a couple of smaller and less sturdy wheelbarrows, I was looking for something rugged which could hold up to heavy loads and roll easily. So far, this is it. It feels incredibly sturdy, rolls easily when loaded with heavy, wet clay dirt and looks like it will hold up. I've only owned it a few weeks but so far it appears to be well worth the money. It is not light weight. Assembly was straightforward; the directions were good. I feel I made a good choice in upgrading from the cheaper plastic options.
