Best Wheelbarrow Top 5 List
When it comes to the best wheelbarrow for your yard or garden you want something that is reliable and sturdy. Wheelbarrows are often referred to as a dump wagon, yard dump cart, yard wagon and garden trolley. Whatever name you use to describe them they all serve the same purpose. You load them up with yard waste and transport them somewhere else and dump the waste a into a pile. They are also useful for transporting heavy objects around your yard or garden. Forget the old fashioned wheelbarrows that had one wheel at the front that always liked to tip over with the slightest nudge. A two wheel wheelbarrow or a four wheel wheelbarrow is a better way to go. A motorized wheelbarrow is also an option these days. A power wheelbarrow does more than just carry debris it actually helps you move it too. Here is our list of what we think are some of the best wheelbarrows, including an electric wheelbarrow.
These Wheelbarrows easily make it onto the top 5 best wheelbarrow list.
The Gorilla Carts GOR6PS Heavy-Duty Poly Yard Dump Cart with 2-In-1 Convertible Handle, 1,200-Pound Capacity, Black is great for transporting anything around your yard. This Gorilla dump cart holds a maximum weight of 1,200 pounds. It is tough and can pretty much handle anything you put in it.
Just like a traditional wheelbarrow the Gorilla cart tilts up to dump it’s contents. Unlike a wheelbarrow there is no strenuous and heavy lifting and awkwardly balancing and trying to dump the contents with just one wheel. The Gorilla Cart simply tilts back and easily dumps it’s contents while remaining completely stable, which means no more heavy lifting.
This is a great cart that will help you immensely with yard work and gardening, from transporting heavy items such as soil or mulch or carrying tools. It is far superior to a traditional wheelbarrow, it’s much more stable, will tilt and dump it’s contents out while remaining on all four wheels.
This cart has a 40 inch by 25 inch bed with 13 inch garden cart wheels. It has a 1,200 pound carrying capacity and a poly bed which makes maintenance and keeping it clean very easy.
The WORX WG050 Aerocart 8-in-1 All-Purpose Wheel barrow/Yard Cart/Dolly, 18″ x 12″ x 42″, Orange, Black, and Silver is a versatile yard cart which does more than just a regular wheelbarrow, while it can certainly be used as a regular wheelbarrow holding up to 300 lbs. and having roughly 3 cubic feet of space inside the cart. It can also be used as a dolly.
We found the dolly feature on the Worx cart to be super useful for moving large objects, we found this to be so much nicer and more convenient than having to have a regular large and heavy dolly sitting around the house that can only do one thing. We also like how this cart has extension arms that can hold up to 80 lbs. these arms are great for attaching a potted plant, bags, rocks or anything else that can be tied or strapped onto them. These arms make it super easy to transport items around the yard.
This is a great cart for average around the house use. It certainly is not as heavy duty as some of our other picks as far as carrying capacity and size, but if you are looking for a yard cart that is more than just a wheelbarrow the Worx Aerocart is a great choice that makes it onto our best wheelbarrow list.
The Marathon Dual-Wheel Residential Yard Rover Wheelbarrow and Yard Cart – Green is a nice little two wheel yard cart. It’s great as a garden companion for carrying tools, supplies, and anything else you might need. It has a 300 pound carrying capacity which we liked. We also like the two wheel design which makes it much sturdier than a typical wheelbarrow that has one wheel.
We like how light it is coming in at only 29 lbs. and the handle is easy to hold onto to which we found makes the Marathon wheelbarrow easy to maneuver and pull or push around the yard. The Marathon wheelbarrow is perfect if you are looking for a simple yard cart that can easily handle everyday yard work.
The Gorilla Carts GOR400-COM Steel Garden Cart with Removable Sides, 400-lbs. Capacity is a steel cart that can haul up to 400 lbs. We found this garden cart to be really tough and robust. The feature we like the best is that the side panels are removable which is great because it allows the Gorilla cart to carry oversized objects which we really like. This garden cart is more than just a work cart for your yard. You can take it with you anywhere to haul around items. Going to the park? Take the Gorilla Cart and have it haul coolers, blankets, containers or anything else.
We also like the 10 inch pneumatic tires and the fact that the front tires turn which means you can steer the cart using the handle, this made it very easy to move around our work area. We found the Gorilla cart to be a great versatile choice not only for yard work but for other everyday activities that require lugging stuff around so it easily makes it onto the best wheelbarrow list.
If you want to make yard work easier a motorized wheelbarrow is a great option.
The Greenworks GC40L410 40V Garden Cart with 4Ah Battery and Charger is a cordless electric wheelbarrow that is powered by a lithium ion rechargeable battery. Since the Greenworks is a power wheelbarrow that runs on battery power there is no need to worry about gas, oil, and stinky exhaust fumes. No matter how great a traditional wheelbarrow is it still requires muscle power to move it around. The Greenworks motorized wheelbarrow is an excellent choice if you want the wheelbarrow to do the heavy lifting and moving.
