Brentwood, $500 for a wheelbarrel, no thanks.

The blue Jackson's from lowes are good enough for me. I get at least 5 years out of them, and they're moving 100's of yards of mulch every year.

Where are you looking and seeing $500?? I bought the biggest one they have, 10cu ft poly dual wheels and it was $329. Best money i've ever spent. Are they 2.5x more expensive than the 8cu ft on at lowes? Yes they are and worth every dam penny! Had it for 2 seasons and buying another one today! Spend the money, cause it will save you time and money in the long run.

Plus those blue jacksons are only 6cu ft. WAY too small for moving around mulch. Mulch is light, so use a bigger one. Less trips to the trailer/truck = $$$$$

btw, i also have 2 blue steel jacksons. Converted them to dual wheel from brentwood. They are my rock wheelbarrows.
