Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jules Not what it used to be
Every time I use this wheelbarrow I feel like the handles are going to snap. We do a lot of gardening, hauling of material, pond and yard work, it's not the wheelbarrow for that. It cannot handle heavy loads, the steel bin is thin and bends, the brace between the bin and handles is plastic and does not help balance the load. We are so unhappy with it and will be looking into returning it for something better.
We had a Dual-wheel, True Temper, wheelbarrow years ago and sold it when we moved and couldn't take it with us thinking we would be able to buy a new one just like it. Sadly that is not the case.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoeClean Hearvy Service required bolts and bracing
Recommend bracing I did to wheel brackets and I added fender washers and braces between the wheel bolts and the tray extended to the rim on each side.
Plus: Good strong handles need a coat of paint if stored outside; Full size tray is deep and without bracing you need to add if you plan to mix concrete or heavy gravel loads.
Minus: I spent $5 on "fender" washers (for front two inside tray) and four longer wheel bolts with nuts and lock washers, used the four existing bolts 90 degrees through (with fender washers extending support from extended length of bolts used) to brace wheel brackets on each side supporting against collapse or bending under load) by the longer bolts, got two wooden (5 gal stir paddles) braces for free in paint aisle for each side from rear wheel bolt to curl edge of tray that stiffened immensely (used 1/4" screws, two metal 90 deg brackets and the wide fender washers for those too).
Great load capability now and store-able outside with another $5 for a can of spray paint on handles and inside tray.
Without the above mods, other users were dissatisfied after they overloaded this medium duty barrow.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brandon Absolutley do not buy!!!!!
This is a horrible wheelbarrow. The front arm would pivot down every time I would dump the dirt out. The handles are wobbly and way to much flexing this was with the wheelbarrow filled 3/4ths full with around 80-100lbs of dirt. The bottom of the wheelbarrow where the bolts mount bent upwards. Absolutely do not recommend this. Super light qarden work only!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dan 50lb weight limit in my opinion
DO not buy if you are going to use it more than a couple times to move very light material. Legs are weak, handles are weak, supports that hold hands to tub are weak. In addition the metal bracket in front of the tire twists and acts as a brake often and you have to bang it back into place. It lasted 1 month for me before returning due to holes right through the thin gauge tub. I buy many things at home depot and never return anything. They probably didn't have to take it back because I used it. They have great customer service. Paid some extra money and got something decent. I wish I did that in the first place.

The brackets that support the axle twist and the wheel constantly falls off. The metal rusts through in the bucket in a short time. Home Depot should return our money for this piece of garbage.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FakeNameWithoutSpaces Poor quality
First day using the wheelbarrow, the metal piece that connects the toe of the wheel barrow rolled up when dumping - I could have an fastened it and re-positioned it, but t already damaged the wood it is screwed into, making it more likely to happen again. Maybe it was bad luck picking it, but I returned it for a refund rather than exchange. Wheel was easy enough to drive, handles seemed slightly weak (creaked with load of dirt and "gave" a little more than expected). Home Depot - make handles and fastener good again and it would be a good wheelbarrow.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bulldog inexpensive wheel borow
As a retired Construction Project Engineer I know equipment and tools used in the trades, I had a twenty year old dual wheel commercial wheel barrow and like me it was old and had to go. So I figured since I needed a wheel barrow for around the house. and went to Home Depot. I found and inexpensive one as I didn't use one everyday and it didn't need to be like the heavy duty ones we used around the construction sites. My main problem is you can't even find an American made wheel barrow. That's to bad, we use to make everything here in the US. It was assembled here which is the only thing American about it. The first thing I noticed when I used it was the handles were 31/2 inches short. which causes problems when you move a fully loaded wheel borrow. So I removed the handles from my "old," wheel borrow and installed them on the new one. Now its fine. We all need to start making everything in the US.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RichD Tire is ABSOLUTE junk
I bought this wheelbarrow for some light yard work. It worked fine for the first hour then I had to air the tire up almost hourly. Since it had been used, I couldn't return it, so I was FORCED to either buy the flat free tire for $40 or spend what little free time I have airing the tire up. I wish I had spent the extra money for the flat free tire model. For what I paid for this AND the replacement tire, I could have bought the flat free tired model.
What can you say about the rest of this wheelbarrow? It hauls loads and does what it's supposed to do! AFTER repeatedly airing up the junk tire of course.
