Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MIKE Take notice when assembling
I bought this item knowing it had a rating of 2 stars and i knew buy the pictures taken what the problem was with the reviews..When assembling the barrow take notice of the bracket from where it mounts above the inside of the tires to the plastic pan.. The angle of the bent bracket at the pan end is way off..If you don't straighten the bracket to a lesser angle it puts a lot of tension on the plastic and over a short period of time the area around the bolt where it is mounted will crack and that's what the bad reviews are about.. Take that bracket and lay it on a vice or ground and hit it with a hammer and make the angle less..Set it back in place by the tire to the pan and see if it is the same angle as the pan..That will stop the breaking around the pan bolts..

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Homestar Don't let Dad use it!
I recommend for garden use or mulching because of the large capacity basin. But I don't suggest it for long term use for construction work. Mine is beat up and wrecked mostly because Dad knows how to abuse equipment. ( cut it, melted it, use it as a saw horse, etc etc) but it also busted the basin where it mounts to the frame. Probably from getting a little brittle and the frame twisting from hauling stones.
( not recommended for heavy hauling )

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dhj01776 Tub cracks due to inadequate support on the back side
Like lots of people, the tub cracked. BUT...most of them have the wrong reason it cracks. It's not due to washers that are too small on the inside, but that there is very little support on the backside. It is an easy fix which should be done when you buy it. I just added a piece of 1/2" thick plywood on the back that holds the whole front of the bottom of the tub so that the plastic can't crack. See pictures. Other than that, the wheelbarrow works fine.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pilonfx Agree with other reviewers
The only choice for a product like this is one star. It is expensive, yet very poor quality. That is the opposite of value. I have had two of these (shame on me). The first I bought for half-off because the tub was cracked. I worked around the problem, and was OK because of the deal. After that one failed beyond repair, I bought a new one. The bolts crack and break through the bottom of the tub. I am not a contractor or anything, and this wheelbarrow doesn't get much use, and doesn't get abused. It really is very poorly designed not to be able to handle more than one season of gardening and landscaping for a single family. The only redeeming quality is the double wheel setup. After using one with two wheels, I hate going back to a single. Unless I can find a better 2-wheel one, though, I'll have to go to a single. No way will I spend $125 every year for a wheelbarrow!

Large capacity, Chinese tires, no UV inhibitor or very little in poly tub.
One tire lasted almost a year. Home Depot gave us a run flat for it. 2nd Tire died about 6 months later. Another free tire wheel assy from Depot. Before end of 2nd year the poly around the bolts was breaking. A function of no UV inhibitor and insufficient size of washer under the fastener head.
I then predrilled and installed 8 SS beefy fasteners (4 in each handle) with SS cup washers and backers.
A couple months passed and the flat portion of the bottom developed a large "U" shaped crack about 10" on all three sides allowing the bottom to resemble a partially opened flap or bomb bay door.
Wheel barrow is now yard art pending part cost from Depot. I called Jackson HQ customer service. My primary reason was to see if there was some guarantee or ? Woman was nice, said no, asked about buying the part, woman was nice and said, NO! So went back to Depot to waste more time. Two phone calls, spoke with 4 people and gave them the model and pn for the tub. Awaiting price and availability. Do not buy this wheelbarrow, rotten inner tubes, no UV inhibitor, and no help from Jackson, Fortunately Depot is doing a good job. I'm on the Olympic Peninsula in WA state where it rains more that it shines. If you were in Phoenix for example you could probably put this out side and watch the sun rot the tub in one summer.
