plastic tub material is inferior
The plastic tub material is brittle and cracks when temperatures are cold particularly around zero or below. I threw a split 16" fireplace log into wheel barrel from a few feet away and it hit the back of plastic tub and cracked/broke the tub punching a few inch hole in it. Was I ever surprised. The black plastic tub material is too uniform and does not stand up to normal use in cold temperatures and hard use during warm temperatures. This was the second plastic tub I had. the first one was replaced under warranty because the bottom wore out after throwing 15 cubic yards of pea rock into it for landscaping job. The warranty is only two years. The wheels and frame are strong but the tub material is the weak spot. Dumping is a problem with the weird frame sticking out in front. The Rubbermaid wheel barrel has a fiber type reinforcement material in their tub and is vastly stronger.

Sturdy and holds a lot
Two-wheeled cart allows me to load 4 bags of mulch and haul it all over my yard. My traditional wheelbarrow was wobbly and hard to push with that kind of load. This new one is very stable even on rough terrain, and is easier to push up hills. It holds a lot, and I like the flat bottom where I can set potted plants and they don't tip. It dumps well and seems very durable. It took 2 people to line up the holes for assembly, but instructions were clear and easy to follow. My only complaint is that I can't stand it on end for storage...it takes up a lot more room in my garage than my old one.

Best Wheel Barrow Ever
I have two of them and they have held up for many years and everything I can put into them. Hope they reappear again, all my garden clients want one after seeing mine.
    Bottom broke out of two items now.
    This is not rated as stated. Maybe if all of the weight is equally distributed. If any 50# object hits the bottom, it will break out. I am outside of a warranty period.

      The best Wheelbarrow ever
      This tool has allowed me to do countless projects on my own but virtue of the leverage and balance this tool brings in a strong but lightweight package. In the yard moving rocks and shrubs. It's has help me move twice. Around the house in seasonal changes where things need to be moved, It can be used to carry the other end of a heavy awkward item, due to its strength, balance, and low center of gravity. Its compact size even allows me to use it in the basement to shuttle things around. I hope it come back in stock and I want to get a second one.
        unhappy after 4 years of use
        This wheelbarrow is not long lasting as one would suspect the "lifetime" name implies The box got a big rip in it, and the base it sits on rusted out. I would not recommend at all!!! And, I would never buy it again. BH
          Best wheelbarrow for moving rocks
          I have worked this wheelbarrow to death moving over 140 tons of rock, rebuilt using parts from Lifetime and worked to death again. I truly wish that I could buy another locally (New England). Tough and well balanced (unlike others that I have tried).
            I love this wheelbarrow
            I picked up this beauty from BJs Wholesale Club when I was a member. Wasn't sure about it, but my back hurt from the one wheeled variety. So I took a chance. I have had it for years with no problem. The screws in the tub are all rusted from the many months it spent in the yard, but I do try to put it in a garage when I can. I live in Delaware, so no extreme cold. I have moved at least 200 full wheel barrows full of topsoil or gravel (different projects) and its still like new. Its light so I throw it on the roof of my car when I go camping to carry all our stuff to the site. Then I lend it to other ill- prepared campers. It rocks. I am 50 years old and 5'7" and I find it easy to flip over and right, its very light. Im going to try to hack it so I can drag it behind my riding mower today.
              Excellent product
              Had this wheelbarrow over 10 years and it worked it’s worth in the first year. It gets rough work often and stays in the weather in the humid south. Some rust on tubing after a decade of tough use, but not due to quality, just harsh work and conditions.
                Holy Crud
                I called in on a wheelbarrow that I had been searching for a replacement tire for. There is no such thing. Then I called Lifetime and BOOM!! "Sir, unfortunately this is discontinued, but the good news is we are shipping out replacement parts for free until we no longer have them. The parts should arrive in a couple of days." Incredible customer service!
