    Neat but the average working man would never buy one,and if you did buy one how long would it last with employes.

    That's not a real powered wheelbarrow, that's a baby wannabe. Look in the pics forum of my post about a little job and you'll see a grown up powered wheelbarrow.

    I didn't want to buy this. I just thought I'd post it for some thoughts.
    I've used those concrete hauler's and other models before. I auctually converted a walkbehind into one before.
