View Full Version : Tough Wheelbarrows

Where do you guys find good wheel barrows for hauling heavy stuff like rock? All of the ones I have are only one wheel and they suck for hauling heavy stuff. I checked the hardware stores, but all of the ones they had looked weak.

I like to use Jackson, but they are kinda pricey. Holds up to pavers, gravel, sand and anything else for that matter. But some may say its not worth the money, but I like them.

I like the Jacksons as well, they have held up better than any other I have used. I do have one other wheelbarrow, made by Brentwood Industries, that has held up almost as well as the Jacksons.

I didn't know Jeep made wheelbarrows. I will have to check a few places to see if they carry them around here. Thanks!

We use all Brentwoods. Kinda pricey at 130 a piece but definately earn their money.

If you're hauling stone, I'd get a single wheel. I use Jackson two-wheelers, but my main focus with them is mulch. Stone and dirt gets heavy quick and assuming a two-wheeler was built for it, it'd be hard to actually push it far. I really like my Jackson two-wheelers, but I'm focused on volume not weight. If I were moving weight, I'd get a single wheel (solid rubber) Jackson with steel tub.

Single Wheel Jacksons for Stone or heavy stuff, and the dual wheel jacksons for the Mulch

i've had issues with the welds on the jacksons a few times... lil tougher weld and they would be super tough.

Brentwood end of story. I've spent more on wheelbarrows than I'd like to admit(no machine) and these are the best.

I don't know their name but I got them from sam's club two wheeled rated for 550 lbs, and only paid 58.00 a piece. Got three of them. Used jackson before and went through them too quickly. We were always bending the support beams, then once they got bent the bolts would tear out of the tub.

The pneumatic tires are nice as they never go flat, but they suck under heavy loads (rock and brick) compared to the real deal (air).

After a year and a half my Jackson two wheel plastic started to tear. I won't buy another plastic one, since then I have purchased a single wheel Jackson I'm not really sold on it I guess I still have bad feelings from the first one. Look around some more.
