Lifetime Wheelbarrows makes light work of big projects

wheelbarrowsLook out the window, spring is here… time to get digging, planting, transplanting, and hauling… wait, hauling? Yup, you’re going to have to move all that compost, all those pavers and blocks, potted shrubs, soil, bags of fertilizer, mountains of mulch… the list goes on and on, but it all needs to be done, and let’s face it, packing it my hand just isn’t a viable option!

That’s where wheelbarrows come in to play. Sometimes called a “garden cart” or “garden wagon”, a wheelbarrow fills a much needed role in any backyard or landscaping project.

Wheelbarrows help carry more per load, and help carry even very heavy items. But that’s where traditional wheelbarrows fall short. Traditional wheelbarrows typically have one wheel at the front of the basket, leaving you to  life the weight of the load on the pivot point of the wheel. Sure, it’s easier than hefting the load on your back, but there’s got to be a better way!

That’s what the smart folks at Lifetime Products thought, too. So they tasked their engineers with designing a better wheelbarrow. The Lifetime Wheelbarrow is what they came up with, much to the relief of weekend warriors and backyard landscapers everywhere!

The Lifetime Wheelbarrow features two heavy-duty wheels to share the load – and reduce tipping (finally!). It also places the wheels right in the middle of your load. This balances the load and makes it easier to lift and MUCH easier to push. Lifetime also redesigned how you dump the load out of the wheelbarrow, give it a try, you’ll be impressed.

Of, and if you want to impress your friends even more, here’s a little information about how the word “wheelbarrow” came around. The word wheelbarrow is a compound word. It’s made by combining the words “wheel” (because it has a wheel - or two) and “barrow” from Old English bearwe (basket) or beran (to bear, to carry). Now you can impress your friends with your new Lifetime Wheelbarrow AND with the etymology of the word!

Now get back to work! ;)

Our Fastest Way to Spread Compost
I think I can finally move again without feeling pain in every inch of my back and arms. Remember in my Great Wheelbarrow Showdown post how I mentioned that my husband and I spread six yards of compost on our front and backyard? Did I mention that I was the one who shoveled absolutely every bit of compost into the Wheelbarrow and Yard Cart? Yep, me and my big buff muscles. Ouch! Anyway, in my Great Wheelbarrow Showdown post, my test results for the best actual wheelbarrow had the Lifetime Wheelbarrow beating out the Lifetime Yard Cart and a traditional wheelbarrow. The Lifetime Yard Cart could hold twice as much dirt as the Lifetime Wheelbarrow and it pushed fairly easy considering the amount of weight in it. However, it failed the wheelbarrow tipping test because once you dump the load, you cant control how much you dump. ...
