Kit Converts Wheelbarrow To 3 Wheels
The company introduced its new "WheelBarrow Buddy" kit at the recent National Hardware Show in Chicago, Ill. The kit consists of a pair of 6-in. rubberized wheels and a 5/8-in. dia. galvanized steel axle that bolts to the legs of any existing wheelbarrow.
"It makes the wheelbarrow easier to use because you can just push it instead of having to lift up on the handles. It's a lot easier to push something than it is to lift and balance it," says Robert Barthe. "To turn the wheelbarrow you simply push down on the handles and lift the front tire off the ground. By leveraging the load onto three wheels there's less chance of tipping so you can move big, bulky, unbalanced loads safely and easily. Another advantage is that by lifting the front tire off the ground you can lift the wheelbarrow right over curbs and ledges."
Sells for $29.95 plus S&H.
