WheelEasy LE collapsable wheelbarrow

The “WheelEasy LE” is a folding wheelbarrow, replacing the heavy steel or plastic tubs of conventional haulers with a 3-cubic-foot, vinyl-coated nylon basin which can hold up to 150 pounds. You won’t be carting around concrete or bears*, but when it comes to dirt or lawn clippings, the WheelEasy has one clear advantage over solid barrows: because it can lie completely flat on the ground, it’s easy to quickly rake it full without shoveling stuff up over the side.

You can find them for around $35, says ToolMonger, but at retail they’re more like $60.

    One of my neighbors recently tried to throw away a perfectly good plastic ‘barrow.

    So good was it that the trash guys didn’t take it and it sat in front of his house for a couple of days.
    When I asked him he said no one would take it so I did him a favor and took the thing.

    It’s awesome. Best freebarrow evar.
    It was instrumental in helping me create the garden(s) I planted for my wife. :)

    I’m generally moving dirt or logs or such heavy cumbersome stuff, but for light work one of these would be great, say when one is weeding or pruning.

    sounds great in theory, but i mostly use a wheelbarrow for transporting things like bark dust or gravel, things that require a shovel to move in and out of the wheelbarrow. Something tells me this thing wouldn’t hold op terribly well to vigourous shoveling.

    It’s perfect for anyone that lives where there’s little to no storage space, but you still have to take care of a yard or garden, like a townhouse. Just fold the sucker up when you’re done using it and stand it up in your shed next to your garbage can.
