ERIE - Wheelbarrows and Garden Carts (3)
Use garden carts to haul fertilizer, mulch, dead leaves, and perform many other outdoor tasks. They feature stable designs and are easy to manoeuvre on a variety of surfaces. Some have non-slip tires with deep treads for easy operation on turf and in gardens. These carts come in different types. Some utility wagon carts have four metal sides with removable front panels so you can dump soil and mulch, offload stumps by tipping, and clean the cart. Dump carts feature beds that open at the bottom to facilitate dumping of sticky or scratchy substances. Flatbed carts have open beds suitable for hauling large objects, and stacking bags. They are ideal for gardens, and commercial, industrial, and warehouse use. Options with one big wheel are suitable for narrow doorways and passages, thanks to their compact designs. Others have tool hooks on their sides to carry shovels, shears, rakes, and other small tools.
Choose from a wide range of wheelbarrows for light and heavy duty jobs. Some have rounded noses that tip at any angle, while flat nose options tip forward for easy unloading. Four wheel options are stable, and have high load bearing capabilities, making them ideal for even surfaces. Two wheel designs balance easily, and can work on smooth or rugged grounds. Carts have different types of tires, including pneumatic tires that feature air-filled tubes, and are easy to push when carrying heavy goods. Foam or rubber filled solid tires have hard outer casings that last long, and are suitable for rough, thorny surfaces.
Sturdy materials such as polypropylene and steel, some with baked enamel finishes, are resistant to dents, chips, and rust. Look for pans suitable for carrying both solids and semi-solid substances, such as mixed concrete. Choose from hardwood, plastic, or steel handles with ergonomic textured handgrips for comfortable operation. Some wheelbarrows have leg stabilizers, stays, and leg shoe pads for extra stability. Other gardening tools are available, including forks, picks, and mattocks, spare parts such as wheelbarrow tires with rims, and universal wheelbarrow wooden handles.
