Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beth Sturdy wheelbarrow
We've had it only one weekend but helped us move 5 yards of topsoil. When you purchase this unassembled, make sure you have the three parts--the yellow pan, the box, and then two handles. My husband got home and when I started assembling realized he had forgotten the handles. Frustrating! I assembled the wheelbarrow in about a half hour with the "help" of my four year old. I really appreciate the two wheels as it was much more stable then single wheel ones I've used. I also appreciate the nice gripped handles, unlike old wooden splintery handles. Hoping this lasts us many years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ty955 True Temper poly wheelbarrow surefooted and easy to manuver
I purchased this wheelbarrow to replace the single wheel unit that was hard to move around with any of load and wooden handle frequently left splinters in my fingers.
The new dual wheel poly unit is light weight yet durable for homeowners moving materials from place to place.
The wheels improved the stability and handling preventing the occasional bump and spill mishaps that single wheel units are prone to have happen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TCandTHW Easy to use wheelbarrow
I use this primarily to pick up horse manure from the paddocks. It is very stable and easy to maneuver, even when loaded. Well made and sturdy.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OldGasser Don't buy a wheelbarrow with a plastic tray
Since Home Depot didn't want to hear about all my attempts to point out this products faults, I will, at their instruction, stick to the product. There are grades of poly that are so tough they will not crack and you can not cut with an axe. This product is not made with one of those. The plastic tray will not last. Either the tray will crack or the holes where the bolts hold it to the frame will break causing the tray to separate from the frame. This will no doubt happen after the 90 day warranty period is up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gcp4 Back saver....
This wheelbarrow hauled 13K lbs of sod and topsoil into a back yard and was a real back saver. Only complaint / advise...go through and tighten all the nuts and bolts. Mine starting falling out within a few hrs, and for god sakes Home Depot...get your guys some socket sets to use to assemble these things so they dont round off all the nuts with pliers...Im pretty sure you have some there!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DG0413 Good, but don't hang this on a wall hook!
First, my rating is for the wheelbarrow during use. It functions well and is sturdy. Price was a little high, but in line with other models available. Build quality is fine, except for the plastic used for the pan, which I'll get to in a moment.
I bought this wheelbarrow 6 months ago to replace an old one. The metal handles & frame are strong, and assembly was easy. It's a little awkward to use since with two wheels you cannot pivot to turn like a "regular" wheelbarrow, but once you've adjusted your technique, it works fine.
The only problem is storage. With the metal frame & handles, plus the second wheel, this wheelbarrow is very heavy. I have a wall-mounted Gladiator wheelbarrow hanger for storage. The weight of the wheelbarrow is so great that the flange on the plastic pan (where the wall hooks hold the wheelbarrow) tore, causing the entire thing to fall off the wall and smack into my car (cracking the bumper, which I now have to pay to repair). Luckily this happened at night, as I have kid's bikes stored underneath the wheelbarrow. My previous (plastic) 1-wheel, wood handled wheelbarrow hung on the same hooks for 5 years with no problems. So, think about storage before you buy this model. If anything, the plastic pan seems to be the same thickness of plastic, or slightly thinner than my previous wheelbarrow.
I plan to return this and exchange it for a steel pan version.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kseo7s Not very good
Bought this wheelbarrow a year ago and was impressed initially, but just today noticed a large crack in it. Used mostly to haul firewood to house and to transport manure to compost. I have never exceeded the capacity and it cracked. Since I can no longer return it at this point, I guess I will patch the crack with sheet metal until I can afford a better one. I had a wooden handled metal one for 10 years and only had to replace it because the bolt holes rusted out. This was a very sorry piece of equipment for the money. Will buy metal from now on. DO NOT BUY!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FloridaRunner Don't be fooled by a bad review
"TonyMan" gave this wheelbarrow a bad review but I think there is an assembly problem with his wheelbarrow. TonyMan needs to make sure the axle for the two wheels is below the two long handle extensions (see photo in this ad). If the wheelbarrow was assembled with the axle above the handle extensions the problem TonyMan describes would result.
I bought this wheelbarrow unassembled because the assembled one would not fit in my car. I used it today to move 4+ cubic yards of 1/2" gravel (approximately 6 tons) around the side of my house (approximately 100ft) where the clearance was only 5 ft.. I had no problems. the two wheels are great as they prevent tipping which is a problem with one wheeled wheelbarrows. The plastic tub is strong and shows no signs of wear and the two wheels distributed the load meaning that it was easier to push the wheelbarrow over a soft or gravely surfaces.
I am extremely happy with this purchase and highly recommend it.
