I bought one of these a month ago. Because the frame bolts together rather than being welded, it is not solid enough and the legs buckle inwards when fully loaded. After use, it gets weaker and tips sideways if it's not level. The wheel is useless on rough ground - normal pneumatic tyre is much better. Probably OK for light garden duties, but avoid for construction work.
Hot.
Nothing worse than getting a puncture in your wheelbarrow tyre miles from nowhere and no spare...

Wouldn't solid wheeled wheelbarrow be more accurate? Or am I missing something? (not knocking the deal BTW)

Puncture proof you say........ we will see about that then

According to the screwfix Q&A "The wheel on this Walsall wheelbarrow is unique. It has many mini shock absorbers that act like the air in a pneumatic wheel. The wheel is formed with a micro cellular foam which gives the wheel the same performance as a pneumatic with the most important feature of it being puncture proof. This unique design means that it is easier to push around than a normal solid wheeled puncture proof wheelbarrow"


...was enough to make me buy it

This is less than £25 at the cash & carry, (+VAT) which shows just how much mark up there is on these products if this is considered a good deal !
Is a Walsall wheelbarrow anything like a Birmingham screwdriver?
