Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BDKtitan Good for home gardening
I've had this wheelbarrow for more than a year. Over the course of several home projects, it developed cracks in the bin. Next time I'll purchase a steel bin, trading durability for weight. Here's a summary of what I learned about this product...
Downsides: The plastic bin was not long-lasting and didn't stand up to loading larger stone rip-rap and cracked on the bottom, then on the front side. I used a piece of plywood, placed between the bin and frame to strengthen the bottom, which worked until the bin's side cracked. I'm 6'4", and the front end will bottom-out when holding the frame handles standing upright, especially when going uphill.
Upsides: The Total Control handles really do work well and help balance the load. The steel frame is tough. The tire occasionally requires inflation, but offers good "roll-ability" over all terrains. While the plastic bin is not as resilient as steel, it is lightweight.
Recommendations for True Temper: Increase the thickness of the plastic bin. Slightly alter the position of the tire on the frame so that the frame is less likely to bottom-out in the front.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Laurie Review of 6 CU. FT. POLY WHEELBARROW WITH TOTAL CONTROL HANDLES
Great wheelbarrow for what I needed... will outlast metal wheelbarrows and will do what I need for years to come! I was able to get the sand moved and was able to get the walkway in place and look forward to using the wheelbarrow to complete my other outdoor projects too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tazman Great product for the money
Bought this wheelbarrow for jobs I have to do when hauling materials down hill. The looped handles are much better than the standard handles for holding back on the load. Quality of this product is good and have found no fault with it yet.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Curt Plastic tub is brittle
It looked durable in the store and I made an impulse buy without reading reviews. The plastic tub is brittle instead of tough like the packaging they seal everything in these days. That thin plastic is impossible to tear or cut and is superior to the formulation they use to make this wheel barrow tub. Unfortunately, I've had mine longer than the 90 day warranty period and the bottom of my wheelbarrow is cracked almost the length of the tub. I'm using it carefully until it splits in two. This is an $80 lesson to do due diligence before making decisions, especially financial ones.

All ready assembled. Had to move 12 yards of dirt. Very easy to balance wheel barrel while moving dirt.

Nice wheelbarrow. Don't throw big stones into it it will get holes in it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bridgenet Pay a little extra and get metal tub
Basically like others have said, the tub is brittle and does not last even if you are careful. I am not out shopping for a metal tub and having to pay the extra.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jothebutcher Really like this a lot!
Easy assembly and easy to use. I like the plastic handles. My old wood ones wore out from being outside. Easy to control with those "total control handles". It easily goes wherever I push it. I put things in it (dirt for instance and some horse manure) and wheel it to the spot it goes and dumps easily as well. Wish I would have bought this long ago.
