Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Just got mine put together
Assembly was a snap, took maybe 30 minutes. I bought this to replace an over-30 year old 4 cu ft wheelbarrow I left out in the rain too many times, and the handles rotted. Plus I wanted a bigger wheelbarrow, but not a 6 cu ft. As soon as I put it together I used it to move a balled tree I had just bought. Instantly I felt it flexing and got an uneasy feeling. I compared the steel thickness of the tray and supports to my old wheelbarrow, and the new one is much thinner, allowing the flexing. So, if you're going to use this for light duty, it's fine, but if you're like me and use it occasionally for heavy tasks, you'll be disappointed. And for the life of me I don't understand why this couldn't be shipped to a store instead of my house.

I am a backyard Gardener since 1949. My Wheelbarrow goes to where i move to. I take good care of my tools. My last wheelbarrow finally died. The new wheelbarrow has everything I wanted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Razor Great wheelbarrow for the price
Admittedly this is the first wheelbarrow I have ever purchased and first I have used in quite some time, but I am very happy with it. Assembly was a little difficult, mainly because I didn't lay out all the parts before starting (who really does?) so I missed the spacers on the bottom as the directions are not very explicit. But once assembled the wheelbarrow is very sturdy, and feels like it will last. I have moved a couple tons of rock up a fairly steep incline so far without any issues. And at this price point, I can leave the wheelbarrow in my yard without a tremendous amount of fear that it won't be around when I get back.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Josh Complete Piece of Junk!
This is one of the worse purchases I've ever made.
Where to begin with this thing? The bucket is constructed of thin metal, not heavy-duty like you'd expect. The metal is so thin that it is flexible, and mine has cracks near the bolt holes that hold the bucket to the frame, the cracks caused by metal fatigue. This has in turn weakened the structure of an already weak design. Next, the assembly materials: there are no lock washers, so if you don't go out and buy washers and lock washers for every connection, the bolts will loosen themselves and cause the wheelbarrow to become very unstable. This will happen very quickly, the wheelbarrow rattles itself apart, especially the bolts that hold the wheel assembly to the frame. Even after having washers installed, if you actually use this piece of junk for hauling heavy things like concrete, the whole wheelbarrow has a tendency to warp and bend, making it difficult to move and maneuver, and it is untrustworthy when even when sitting on the ground because the whole frame shifts under loads. The tire is thin and was punctured within 10 minutes of using it; I had to go buy a universal, foam filled replacement, which frankly should be standard on something that calls itself a "contractor" version. The little bar in front of the wheel CONSTANTLY twists up or down and will cause the wheelbarrow to stop in its tracks due to the friction it causes on the tire. If you buy this, be prepared to adjust that poorly held bar after dumping every single load. No exaggeration. This in turn loosens the bolts holding the bar on, which further destabilizes the wheelbarrow.
There is nothing whatsoever to like about this product. Its first failure happened within an hour of assembling it with the tire friction thing, which caused me to trip and lose a load of concrete. I despise this item, and now I hate the company that sells it. I won't buy the True Temper brand, and it infuriates me that The Home Depot would even sell such a shoddy, worthless product. I would rather use my bare hands to move concrete than this abomination of a product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BonnieY Compact wheelbarrow that works
I only wanted a small wheelbarrow - we are an older couple, and our yard isn't very big. The plastic one we bought first tore within a very short time, so we definitely needed a replacement that was sturdier. I definitely recommend getting a metal wheelbarrow. This one works fine. Rolls easily over a gravel path, and we have used it for some heavy (for us) loads. Easy to assemble (had a handworker who was working at our home tighten the nuts, though.) I would recommend that the manufacturer offer a smaller size in the same quality, though.

I've been a landscaper for 13 years. This wheelbarrow was one of my very first purchases and has lasted this long. From hauling yards of mulch to dirt. Unfortunatlly I have to go buy a new one because there's a split starting on one of the handles where the bolt is. But from using nonstop for 13 years and being outside in the elements. That's a pretty good product!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by aptx Good wheelbarrow, but not contractor grade
Purchased because of smaller bucket in order not to overdo while moving gravel. Paint stood up well with shoveling gravel in and out of bucket. Don't expect a miniature version of the contractor and you'll be happy.

Easy to assemble, I use it daily for horse manure and the finish on the metal keeps it from getting all gross. Definitely get a metal wheelbarrow over a plastic one.
