    As soon as my 1 wheeler goes I will also get a 2 wheel kind. Have looked at them for a while but the ol' 6 cu fter just keeps on truckin.

    Agrifab 10 cuft 2 wheel buggy or barrow. Best I have ever seen. that thing will haul tons and make easy work out of it. When useing it as a barrow take the toung off or if you use it as a buggy behind a tractor or ztr extend the tounge. Plastic hopper makes for easy emptying. Best mulch barro in the business. only load 1/2 way for sod. make sure to put 5-10 psi extra for sod in tires.

    since we have the wheel barrow debate going on, what does everybody prefer steel or poly?

    poly. No rust everything slides out easier. I go through at least one wb every 2 years with poly. I could get a longer lasting wb using a steel but production would slow. steel does not hold as much and the weight is a major issue.

    For me the 2 wheeled wheel barrows are the way to go. I have 2 of them and love them.

    Poly 8cu two wheeler is the way to go,I do still use my one wheeler for some stuff but
    I also have a wheelbarrow I bet none of you have tried,Called "Easywheeler"ordered from Leevalleytools.com, less than $100.00 works great for mulch and for tight places,and folds up small enough to haul both wheelbarrows with me.Rated to 1000lbs and is so cool cuz you lay it down open it up and rake or fork the mulch right in,great when unloading off my truck to just push it off into the thing..Check it out.Like I said I use all three it's only good for certain things.
