Key Things to Look for In a Wheelbarrow

Wheelbarrow Tub Capacity

When it comes to deciding on the right wheelbarrow there are many elements to consider, especially the capacity of the tub or pan. Depending on your needs for the barrow, can depend on the type that you need. Most wheelbarrows come in a range of capacities, from as small as 40L (litres) to as large as 175+L (litres) Ensuring you have the correct capacity is crucial to the longevity of your wheelbarrow.

Wheelbarrow Weight Capacity

It is important to remember that metal or steel pans will usually be able to sustain a heavier load, whereas a plastic tub may crack under heavy pressure. Many plastic wheelbarrows can still hold a heavy load, but it is crucial to know the amount of weight you are likely to be putting into the wheelbarrow before purchasing one that doesn’t suit your needs.

Wheels and Tyres

Wheelbarrow wheels and tyres can vary depending on the type of wheelbarrow you choose. Ranging from single-wheeled to two-wheeled and even four-wheeled (these are usually known as carts and have flatbeds).

When it comes to the right wheels and tyres, you need to think about the type of terrain that you will be using your wheelbarrow on. Single-wheeled barrows are usually easier to manoeuvre through tight spaces and corners but are more difficult to balance with heavier loads.

Tyres on wheelbarrows vary, from inflatable to plastic and solid rubber, each type of tyre is suitable for different surfaces and terrains.

Wheelbarrow Handle

Most wheelbarrow handles are made from either metal or wood. Wooden handles are usually lighter than metal but if left out in bad weather the finish may tarnish and may require retouching.

Some metal handles can be susceptible to rust if left outdoors. The design of your wheelbarrow handle can also vary like the material. Handle designs to choose from vary between straight and looped, in some instances looped handles can allow for a pull rather than a push wheelbarrow.
