This is a good solid product. It takes some time to assemble, and I agree with one criticism that the wooden wedges should be made of a material that won't rot over time. They are a lightweight wood, (like pine?), and painted with a heavy paint. The steel handles add some significant weight, so this is not a lightweight product. If you are moving heavy loads, like dirt, the extra weight is definitely a factor. It's not for lightweight or weak users, but it is really solid and a normal man will have no problem using it for heavy loads. My previous wheelbarrow had wooden handles and was much lighter, though. The wheel is made in China, and not perfectly round, nor balanced. But for normal wheelbarrow use it still works well. Hopefully, they will get a US supplier that makes better quality wheels sometime soon. Apparently, there is no company in the US that makes these now. The rest of the product is made in the USA, according to the company. I definitely recommend it if you want a really sturdy wheelbarrow.
I would love to give this a 5 star because we use Jackson wheelbarrows at work and they last. However I never got to use this one. Got it home and opened the box only to find no handles. That's unacceptable. It would have been okay had I been able to exchange it for another one but since it was special order it had to be returned, and was going to be another 4 to 6 weeks. Heck no am I waiting again. So for less than half what I paid for the Jackson I got an Ace Hardware.
