8-10 cu ft wheelbarrows best brands

Looking to buy some either 8 or 10 cubic feet dual wheel wheelbarrows and wondering what name brands have held up the best. I noticed most are poly bins verse the metal on all our 6 cubic feet wheelbarrows. Temper? Jackson ?

So far. Purchase from lowes and keep the receipt. They will take it back no questions asked. Almost like Kobalt tools.

The Jackson from Lowes is a good one. Ive had 2 of them, the poly holds up pretty good. The 1st one did crank on me, but it was my own fault. I threw a 4ft chunk of a railroad tie into it and cracked the front lip. Still got 2 more years out of it before it cracked all the way too the bottom

I got an 8 cu from Gempler's a couple of years ago. It is a single wheel with a poly tub. It has held up well and has a nice sized tire.

True Temper and Jackson are garbage. I have a graveyard of them for parts. All the parts are too small or weak. The plastic bins crack easily.

The black dual wheel model from AM Leonard is good. I think the brand is scenic railroad or something like that.

The best are brentwood. They aren't cheap but they are the best. I won't buy any other brands since I bought a brentwood last year.
