Am i the only one who hates flat free tires? Theyre too soft and when its loaded down its a nightmare to push. I change them to pneumatics.

we use the single wheel brentwoods. 6 cu.ft. The single wheels are more maneuverable, and the wide ass wheel they give you does great in mud and loose dirt etc.

We use the largest gorilla carts, we have three of them now, you can hook them to the back of the mowers and tow them if you need to or just pull them by hand. Makes for some really fast mulch jobs without all the headache of tipping wheel barrows, and pushing up hills and all the other headaches wheel barrows bring. Our stuff is stored inside also so that helps with the lifespan of stuff

I agree. The flat frees are way too soft. However, the pneumatics go flat too frequently, especially when turning the dual-wheel barrows with a heavy load.

If we could just get a harder flat free, that would be ideal.

Dump carts for me are like been their done that, even though i use one weekly to tow my whackers blowers and catcher job to job . I feel as if its a restraint because you cant mulch when its slightly damp because of rutting. The best way to move mulch is get 4 "workers" you pick up on the corner and give them shovels and wheel barrows and that pile will be gone in an hour. But thats just my 2 scene
