    Nice, pretty basic tho. not sure i'd pay more than $1200 for it unless the dump has a hydro assist.
    must be nice on hills!

    That is pretty neat but is it any more practical then a couple of wheelbarrows
    and a couple young bucks to move them ???

    it is nice for those long hauls for large loads of mulch, realy awesome for rock. it is not useful on small areas, but we have plenty where the distance is long and the hills are too much to push all day long.

    i have no idea on the price we paid.

    it is tilted to when you release the hopper catch mechanism, it falls foward. it is made to do so. hydro dump of course would be optimal, but the price i am sure would UN justify its practicality

    we have tow double wheeled regular barrows that we use for mulch and whatever, but this proved useful for the above mentioned reasons. river rock was the biggest use for it

    Wish we had it when we redone ours. We put down about 50 ton of large river rock and broke the handles out of the wheelborrow. Would be a real plus on the rock.

    Be nicer if it had a spreader attachment on it too!

    hey now, i thought we got the biggest one made!

    they did however put the cheaper more flimsy hopper on it as they discontinued the heavy one. we plan on beefing the hopper up a bit for extra heavy loads.
