  • Wheelbarrow recommendation please

    I need a new barrow, any advice on which one, builders, plastic, big wheel etc?

  • #2
    Here's one I started years ago https://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gr...ion_66565.html
    My Haemmerlin barrow with its new solid wheel is still going strong - so that's my recommendation.

      I still use a builders metal barrow which was bought new in 1973 - Ive done a few repairs to the frame, and swapped on a new tyre, but nothing major.

        I have a 'Fort' wheelbarrow that's been with me through rain and shine since about 1988. It's got (what I think is) a puncture proof wheel and it still seems happy - must be all the talking I do to it!

          I'd get anything with a wheel that doesn't puncture - my two barrows last year both had punctures and they cost me 8 to fix at the tyre place I hate DIY!! I've got a hard wheel one now after complaining to the OH.

                It depends on how much you're going to use it and what for.

                I went the cheapo route bought the cheapest galvanised one off ebay but I mostly use it for transporting weeds and lightweight compost, and to mix compost and hold seedlings.Transporting on paving stone and clean soft grass.

                I don't use it for heavy wood etc and keep it in the shed most of the time.
                It's taken the odd rain but not a scrap of rust, tyre's fine so far after a year. Probably wouldn't hold up so well with heavy use.

                I figure the larger the barrow the more force on the wheel etc so unless it's a big job, consider your needs and if it makes sense forking out an extra 20 for an 85L if a 65L will do.
