Mine is a Brentwood. It seems to be the reader's choice.

I am having a problem with the orange wheelbarrows from home depot. http://www.homedepot.com/p/True-Temp...1?N=5yc1vZc5qk. they don't hold up that well.
Is the Jackson better?

Brentwood only. You can abuse them and they still will last you 3 years.

Probably.

I like plastic because it doesn't rust and they seem to hold up better

I have a blue ace hardware brand 10 cubic foot dual wheel. IT has held up great for mulch and was only 150. I have a couple of all metal northstar "excavator" s for the heavy stuff

Does anybody have a steel Brentwood wheelbarrow? Looking into getting one, but at $300....?

Is the 6" tire a good choice?

Thanks
