    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 ?

    Jackson is good but you will need to put loctite on every nit

    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.
