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.

Gorilla Cart Yard Dump Cart

Worx Aerocart

Marathon Wheelbarrow

Gorilla Cart Steel Garden Cart

Greenworks Cordless Garden Cart

Gorilla Cart Yard Dump Cart

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.

Worx Aerocart

The WORX Aerocart Multifunction 2-Wheeled Yard Cart, Dolly, and Wheelbarrow with Flat Free Tires 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.

Marathon Wheelbarrow

The Marathon Dual-Wheel Residential Yard Rover Wheelbarrow and Yard Cart 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.

Gorilla Cart Steel Garden Cart

The Gorilla Carts GOR400-COM Steel Garden Cart with Removable Sides, 400-lbs. Capacity, Green 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.

Greenworks Cordless Garden Cart

If you want to make yard work easier a motorized wheelbarrow is a great option.

The Greenworks 40V Cordless Garden Cart, 4.0 AH Battery Included GC40L410 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.

Best Greenhouse

Palram Hybrid Greenhouse

The Palram Hybrid Greenhouse is a greenhouse that comes in many different sizes so you should be able to pick the perfect size for the space you have available. This greenhouse has a roof vent which is great for letting fresh air in and keeping your plants happy, the panels also block out 99% of UV rays. This greenhouse kit does require assembly and is on the larger side as far as residential greenhouses go so it is not portable. Make sure you pick out the best spot possible to place it. When it is built it will provide your flowers and plants with the protection they need in a safe environment.

Best Corded Electric Lawn Mower

The Greenworks makes it onto the best corded electric lawn mower list.

Greenworks Lawn Mower

Best Corded Electric Lawn Mower

The Greenworks 20-Inch 12 Amp Corded Lawn Mower 25022 has no problem making the best corded electric lawn mower list. The Greenworks corded lawn mower is best suited for a small to medium sized yard. This mower would be great for people who live in town homes, condos, row homes, or even a single family house with a small lawn. I wouldn’t use this on a large piece of property with a lot of grass to cut.

Greenworks Corded Lawn Mower Features

  • Power: 12 amps
  • 20 inch steel deck
  • Height Adjustment: 7 positions between 1 ½ to 3 ¾ inches
  • Weight: 56 lbs.
  • It has durable plastic wheels. The back wheels are 10 inches and the front wheels are 7 inches in diameter.

Keep in mind that this is not a self-propelled lawn mower so you will have to physically push it to make it go forward, however the Greenworks electric lawn mower has large rear wheels and is lightweight which makes it easier to push. If you have a hilly lawn it might be good exercise.

The Greenworks Corded Lawn Mower does not come with a power cord to plug into an outlet. You will need to either already own one or you will need to purchase one separately. Make sure the cord you own or the one you purchase is rated for a 12 amp device or higher, and make sure it is long enough that you will be able to mow your entire lawn. If you purchase a cord that is not rated for a 12 amp device you risk destroying the corded lawn mower.

You will save money on fuel cost and you don’t have to deal with gas smells or spills. You also don’t need to worry about ever changing the oil because there is none. You will not need to worry about recharging batteries or buying new batteries since this is all electric.

The Greenworks corded lawn mower offers three options for cutting grass. You can use the side discharge which will just throw the grass clipping out of the side of the mower onto your lawn. You can bag the clippings with a rear attachable bag. The third option which most people would probably like best is that the mower can mulch the grass clippings. Mulching mowers are so much easier to use if you prefer not having to worry about dealing with grass clippings either scattered all over the lawn or in a bag.

The Greenworks corded lawn mower is very compact. You can fold the handlebars down over top of the mower which will save a lot of space when not in use or when storing over the winter months. This is definitely a good feature to have if your storage space is limited to begin with.

Since the Greenworks 20-Inch 12 Amp Corded Lawn Mower 25022 uses a cord you want to be very careful to avoid running over the cord. Since this is an electric mower it is probably best not to use the mower unless the grass is totally dry. You wouldn’t want to risk some kind of electric shock from using the mower on damp or wet grass. Cutting damp grass is also a hassle, which makes a mess and can clog up any mower, even a self propelled gas powered lawn mower.

Greenworks also has a great string trimmer that made it onto our top 5 Best Weed Eater list as well.

Greenwoks Corded Lawn Mower Pros and Cons

ProsCons

Can be folded to save spacePower cord is not included
Mower is lightweight at only 56 lbsMower is not self propelled

Sun Joe Electric Lawn Mower

The Sun Joe MJ401E Mow Joe 14-Inch 12 Amp Electric Lawn Mower With Grass Bag is a great little mower, it is very lightweight weighing only 29lbs. Compare this to the weight of a traditional gas lawn mower which weigh significantly more, the lightweight of the Mow Joe makes it easier to work with and move around. Don’t let the lightweight fool you, it might be small but it is mighty. It has a strong 12 amp motor that can power through grass with ease, with 3 height adjustments and includes a 10.6 gallon grass collection bag.

Pick this mower if you have a small to medium size yard, prefer not to worry about gas and oil and want a lightweight mower.

Find another mower if you have a large yard or want the power of a gas lawn mower.

Overall the Sun Joe MJ401E Mow Joe 14-Inch 12 Amp Electric Lawn Mower With Grass Bag is a great choice and easily makes our top 5 best corded electric lawn mower list.
