SWMBO came across this very, very clever wheelbarrow.

Looks just like a wheelbarrow, yes ? Longer handles than usual perhaps but at a better height for some.


But take a closer look and you'll see a dolly wheel at the rear that makes turning effortless.


But that's not all. Press down on the release et voila...it tips.


The build quality is excellent. How many other wheelbarrows do you know that have ballraces in the wheels ? Or a ball race on the pivot of the dolly wheel? Complete with grease nipple.

Cracking job...bit pricey but I think it's worth it.

How do you find pushing it through rough terrain or uneven surfaces?

I bought my wife a 4 wheel trolley and she finds it much harder to pull / push than a single wheel barrow, hence it never gets used.

Too early to say, Richard. It's not been used in anger yet.

Good luck pushing that up a scaffold plank! Looks great for gardening and mucking out stables, but not building work.

The wheelbarrow I could take or leave, but a Honda S2000, now that's something I'd like to own ☺

(hammer) The missus has taste, bought a barrow to match the car.

I could find a use for that but already have 3 wheelbarrows, a 4 wheel one and a trailer for the ride-on.
I'll think of a project that they can't do :wink:
