    Hey Guys,

    I am getting bigger into doing landscaping and my plastic cheapo wheelbarrow has about bit the dust and i was looking at some and i can get two one wheeled for almost the price of one two wheeled. I would like two b/c most of the time my dad comes with me when doing landscaping. Pics, Ideas? THANKx -Mitch-

    i have a two wheeled wheel barrow and a one wheel, two wheel you can go all day with less fatigue much easier to handle can carry more. hands down 2 wheels are better spilage is greatly reduced... spent the extra cash you wont be disapointed.

    2 wheels are better unless you have to go across a hill......then 1 wheel is better....

    I have a Jackson 8 cu.ft. from Lowes it was free because someone lost it off their truck and a friend of mine grabbed it.....I like it.

    I had a 10 cu. ft. one that was too big......

    Two wheeled barrels are good for light materials and flat ground...try running one going across a slope.....it sucks azz
