Last year I bought one of those True Tempers or whatever they're called from Home Depot. Plastic tub with aftermarket single solid rubber tire. I've only used it a couple times, but seems to work well enough for moving pea gravel and dirt.

I have 2 of the 2wheel jacksons. They don't seem to hold up well unless you only use them for mulch. One of them cracked and cracked to the point I can't use it now. They're decent for the price I guess. I'm definitely going to upgrade next year. I can't remember the brand but they look to be built much better and are around $200

I have 2 choices. Little jobs I use the 5 X 7 little blue tarp, from Harbor Freight. Bigger jobs get the ASV RC-30!

I've used the single wheel commercial Jackson's over the years for concrete demo/pour backs, very sturdy, be sure to invest in the 'no blow' tire.

Here is one I just bought and like it better as there are no crossbars to knock your shins/knees. Same size as Jackson (6cu ft) just wee bit wider. And the front 'roll bar' is higher off the ground so you wheel it without worry of hitting/catching something causing 'slip, trip, tipover' issues. Front roll bar allows dumping load is easier.

Wow I saw the price from the web page and this wheel barrow has jumped in price. I paid like 150.00. from Normac. The Commercial Jackson is great so get it if its cheaper. I just prefer 'The Excavator'.

I use the plastic, 2-wheeled, 10 cu/ft wheelbarrows. The only type that has held up is this one:
