Hey Guys,

I am getting bigger into doing landscaping and my plastic cheapo wheelbarrow has about bit the dust and i was looking at some and i can get two one wheeled for almost the price of one two wheeled. I would like two b/c most of the time my dad comes with me when doing landscaping. Pics, Ideas? THANKx -Mitch-

i have a two wheeled wheel barrow and a one wheel, two wheel you can go all day with less fatigue much easier to handle can carry more. hands down 2 wheels are better spilage is greatly reduced... spent the extra cash you wont be disapointed.

2 wheels are better unless you have to go across a hill......then 1 wheel is better....

I have a Jackson 8 cu.ft. from Lowes it was free because someone lost it off their truck and a friend of mine grabbed it.....I like it.

I had a 10 cu. ft. one that was too big......

Two wheeled barrels are good for light materials and flat ground...try running one going across a slope.....it sucks azz

We have both and the two wheel can't manuever in the beds rock is hard on them the guys overload them and they are messy in tight areas. I haven't touched the three we have in 3 years.

I'll Proboably get a two wheeled and then later if i get really big into landscaping i'll get a one wheeled. I dunno we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

The best wheelbarrow i have ever used is from AM Leonard. It is a poly 10yd 2 wheeled wheelbarrow that has held up great. right now they are on sale for 160 but well worth the money. I just ordered another one myself. just my $.02

Hope this helps

I like 1 wheel better, easier to run it up a plank into the dump bed, easier to steer and easier to dump.
I use jackson, very heavy duty. I just want to add a flat free tire now!

You will need both kinds of wheelbarrow.But if I could only buy one..I would make my 1st one a two wheeler.I have 3 kinds I use.

I'll most likely go out first and buy a two wheeled then later get a one wheeled.
