Yardworks 2-Wheeled Wheelbarrow
wrong parts, extra parts still a good deal at $88
Instructions said to use bolt M to attach axle bracket . . .no can do they are too short need bolt L. Bolt M is used thru the thinner dimension of the handle not the thick dimension that the axle bracket must be attached thru. Also, the axle bracket holes were too close together so had to drill a new hole. I am wondering if he gave me a wrong set of handles. He had to go and find the box of parts and the pan and then went back to get handles. There is a Yardman 1 wheel , , , did I get those handles instead??!! Hopefully I will be ok by picking up 4 bolts of the right length at the hardware store tomorrow and all will line up fine. After getting it 85% assembled I am not going to take it apart to take it back and then start over . . .too many things to do to repeat stuff.

Very stable and easy to assemble
Bought it over the w.e. , and assembled in 45 minutes. As suggested by previous reviewer I put the plastic washers into each bolt between the bolt head and the tub. Also ended up with two extra braces not covered by the instructions. Actually they fit across the leg assembly. My old one wheel wlheelbarrow had braces installed that way. For the price I paid on sale, it is a good buy, I am very pleased with this purchase and much easy to handle even though I am a 75 yrs old gardener.

EXTREMELY EASY TO ASSEMBLE
I purchased this after reading all the reviews on this website. It was on sale today, and I just happened to be ready to buy a two-wheeled wheelbarrow because of the ease of manueverability and stability. I'm 6 months pregnant and also have elderly parents that will use it. I assembled mine in only 30 minutes. There were quite a few reviewers for this wheelbarrow who had a hard time with the instructions and the assembly, especially with the cotter pins--WHY ARE YOU BENDING THE COTTER PINS?? You're supposed to simply tap them in with a hammer. If you bend them in any way, you'll have a problem with them staying on. And one reviewer had trouble with the leg brace: yours was probably UPSIDE DOWN. There is NO BENDING REQUIRED. After I assembled everything, I ended up with some extra pieces that weren't in the instructions: a few plastic washers, and two MORE metal braces. I decided to put the plastic washers onto each bolt on the inside of the pan to make the pan water tight. I might replace these with rubber washers at a later time, if I feel like I need to. I'm gonna install the two extra braces across the leg assembly, because that is the only place they fit (the picture above actually has these installed this way, but for some reason they aren't in the instructions). I might also replace the pneumatic wheels with solid flat-free wheels if these ever go flat. I still need to tighten all the nuts but I gave it a run anyway, and I absolutely love it! Very stable! I will never use single-wheeled ones ever again!

Much better than 1 wheel
Take the time to put together properly and this thing will last you for 20+ years.... I've had mine for 3 years now and it's stood up very well

Two wheels are great!
Got this wheelbarrow last year on sale, and it has been a great purchase. Yes, assembly had me cursing a blue streak, and it wasn't easy...and I did have to bend the pins in order for them to stay attached...but I got it done. I'm so glad I got this one with the 2 wheels. It is rock solid to move around, Highly recommend if you have anything other than a flat lawn. It's great on hills, rough ground, etc.

Consider another product
Paid full price for this product at the Etobicoke store. Got everything assembled,( at our wknd place in Napanee), only to discover the brace on the legs does not fit without bending the legs by 1.5 inches. Possibly we were given the wrong bin and kit, not sure, but it will take three trips to return the item, and I am out the assembly time. Will return it and wait for a sale elsewhere.

Great product, but watch out for the assembly!
This is a great wheelbarrow, and I have been using it all week to haul about 3 yards of dirt up a bit of a hill to my new garden.
My only complaint is about the assembly instructions - they are among the worst I have ever seen: A very small print schematic, with clumsily worded written instructions referring back to the schematic. It took me about four tries to get it together with all the pieces.
Do yourself a favour, and spring for the $10 to get it pre-assembled.

Do not buy pneumatic tires
The wheelbarrow is good but I'll never buy another with Pneumatic tires again!!!! When you get a flat, it's next to impossible to re-inflate the tire!!!! The tire collapses onto itself and you must take it in to have it re-inflated.
Purchase a wheelbarrow with flat-free tires! It will save you a lot of headache in the long run!!!

Sturdy & Durable
This is the best wheelbarrow i have used. It is so sturdy with those two wheels, no more tipping. Plus this thing is durable.

As sturdy as it gets
This wheelbarrow is a great addition to home or cottage. Rugged yet extremely sturdy. My kids love to take a ride in it as well.
