Two-Wheeled Wheelbarrow
Wheelbarrows can be one of the most useful tools on the farm but they're also one of the most awkward when piled high with whatever has to be hauled. Merlin Schwanke, Sanborn, Minn. has a way to make wheel-barrows more stable for hauling
big loads. He added a front wheel.
"Anyone with problems with wheelbarrows tipping over should add another wheel. It'll stabilize the front end and let you carry bigger loads farther. Makes it a much handier tool," says Merlin.
He mounted two small trailer type wheels beneath the framework of his older model wheelbarrow.
He adds that on new models, you may have to brace it up a bit especially those with 1/2 in. axles.
