I bought one of these to use at my girlfriend's house and liked it so much I got another one for my own property. It's well-made and sturdy, with large capacity and great maneuverability. It's easy to clean and stands on its own without having to lean it against a wall during storage. Not that it matters much, but I like the mag wheel and the harvest color. Flame paint job, anyone? :) The handles are comfortable and small enough that you can get a very strong grip. As for their composition, wooden handles can rot and snap, while metal handles can rust and bend. Nothing's indestructible if abused or neglected. I fortified mine by inserting 1.25" square wooden stock inside each handle (they're hollow), then drilling through the wood where the holes are in the handles. That added support without much weight and let me crank all the bolts tightly without deforming the metal. The flat-free tire is a big plus, and sells separately for $40-50, making this wheelbarrow a pretty good value on that basis alone (I bought my mother a lightweight wheelbarrow for gardening years ago, but since the tire is usually flat, it doesn't do her much good. Replacing the valve stem didn't address the problem, and if you don't have an air compressor, it's enormously inconvenient to fill the tire before each use). Some reviewers have complained that the tire flattens too much under load, but I've had mine fully loaded with topsoil or floor tiles, and could still wheel it across the yard on an uphill grade without difficulty. The front nose piece catches easily, which is great for emptying both full and partial loads without slipping or sliding, but would probably be a disadvantage negotiating uneven terrain if you're tall. Besides the wooden inserts, I used flat washers under every nut, and learned that it's wise to assemble everything loosely, align it, then tighten it all down snugly - this is especially true of the leg brace. I also greased the axle before assembly, as it can't be accessed easily later. Overall, it's a solid, useful tool that works hard, and I am satisfied with my purchase - both of them.

No problems so far. I don't leave my tools out in the weather so I don't see where I'll have an issue with rust. I do have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the tire. Yes it is flat free, but is skinnier then I'm used to and requires a little more effort when pushing mud up a 2 by when doing concrete work. Once I got used to it, it's great not to have to air a tire up everyday!

  • Low clearance, flat-free tire not all it's cracked up to be.
  • April 26, 2016

This wheelbarrow has a super cool mag-look wheel, which totally hooked me into buying it. I mean, who doesn't want to have the raddest hot rod wheelbarrow on the block? I gotta admit, it looks neat, and the never-flat tire was pretty alluring. Then I used it and cursed its cool-wheeled, no-flat having name all day. First, the flat-free tire is not nearly as good on rough surfaces as a pneumatic tire is. I was using the 'barrow to haul out broken up concrete, and it was stopped dead by every little rock. No fun when you are already pushing around hundreds of pounds of friggin' concrete. The wheel, however, kept looking cool and I could totally tell that all the ladies were watching when I was dumping my concrete. The attention was nice, but in hindsight, I'd go with a regular-old sometimes-gets-a-flat wheel. On top of the wheel & tire-related issues, the clearance under the tip bar in front is really, really low. You have to hold the wheelbarrow completely flat, or the bar will hang up everything. By the end of my first day of using it, the tip bar was totally annihilated from bashing into stuff. I welded up a new one and that solved the clearance issue, but I really hate working on/repairing my new tools instead of finishing my projects. Flaws aside, the steel handles are solid, and the bucket stood up to four days of me carelessly chucking five tons concrete into it. Also, the wheel still looks cool. Good enough, but not great.

Pros Durable, Stylish, Vibrant Color, cool wheel Cons flat-free tire bad on rough surfaces, bad design on tip bar, low clearance

I purchased this a few weeks ago to upgrade from my old very lightweight wheelbarrow. I needed something more heavy duty for a drainage and wall project I am doing in my yard. After countless loads of dirt/mud, gravel and loose rock, it has held up quite well. It can handle a full load of soil but not of rock/gravel. This is fine because even if it was full, it would be too heavy to push. I was skeptical of the flat free tire but seems fine. I've read they can seem more flat then full but as long as the barrow isnt overloaded it does fine. For this price, better choice then the Jackson and don't waste your money on the cheaper ones, they can't handle much.

This wheelbarrow has 3 shortcomings. First, the front wheel guard, juts out too far past the tire, which hits any obstacles such as a ramp, or small step, which makes the operator have to stoop down while passing over these transitions. Second is the flat proof tire. It's soft, so it only carries medium weight loads, beyond that, it feels like a flat tire. And third, the brackets holding on the wheel axle are thin, which bend back under heavy loads. I used this wheelbarrow to transport soil, from backyard to front yard, and load into a trailer. Rather disappointing. On the positive side, the handles are comfortable, and the steel barrow is sturdy.

This is a great product. I used it to haul literally tons of dirt, sand, and brick over the weekend building a walkway, and I have to say, this is one of the best wheelbarrows I've ever used. Very sturdy, but still fairly light, well balanced, maneuverable. The no-flat tire is a must if you ever work on construction, and it's a nice feature anyway.

I needed a yard work wheelbarrow and this is meeting my expectations. It feels sturdy enough and the handles feel strong and secure so far. It assembled in about 15 minutes for a lazy person like me(deep sockets are a plus if you have them). *I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a light duty bucket on a wheel.

  • Nice value in a never flat wheelbarrow
  • April 11, 2017
  • Recommended Product

I have had a few wheelbarrows over more than 30 years and they typically had a flat tire. So when I needed one for the house I moved into, I wanted a standard wheelbarrow with a tire that would never require air to be added. I have used this on a couple of weekend projects to haul mulch. I am very satisfied with the result. I store it on its nose so it doesn't take up much space in my garage. Very pleased and would recommend this to anyone who wants to use a standard size barrow. I could have gotten a larger one, but it was twice the cost. So this one was the best value.

Between the solid construction, steel handles, and flat-free tire, this is the best wheelbarrow HD has to offer. The sheet metal used for the body is sufficiently thick and didn't feel flimsy like some of the other wheelbarrows I looked at.
