"I've been using wheelbarrows in the landscaping trade for 20 odd years. In that time I've used a lot of barrows. The metal ones normally last 6 months to a year. They are half the cost but don't even come close to this amazing barrow. Well balanced and strong. Until you've tried it, you won't mind spending the money on it. Mine did crack on the bucket but it was swapped under warranty no problems. I'm about to add more of these barrows to the team."
