I was doing a clean out of a local biz last week. Mainly putting light items in the wheel barrow to wheel out to the trailer. Was pushing in up the trailer ramp, when all bolt areas broke off at the plastic at the same time. This is the second (8) cu ft Jackson in 2010 to break...always breaks off where the metal bolts are in the plastic. I replaced the tires with no flat tires, was very careful in handling the barrow taking it off the truck, Treated it like a baby! Jackson plastic hopper wheelbarrows just plain suck. At $120.00 a pop, one would expect such a barrow to last a long long time. The (8) cu ft is perfect for clean out jobs or moving large quantities of mulch etc, yet the plastic obviously is poor quality at least at the bolt areas. The hopper should be made out of metal instead of plastic. I think I am going to have to find someone to make me a metal hopper to replace the plastic tub. It might cost me a bundle but imagine such a wheelbarrow lasting for YEARS of regular use daily! I'll be contacting Jackson & see what they have to say.
