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! ;)

The Pre-School Experiment
If you run a pre-school, a day care, or just have children at home, you probably know all too well what creative littleones can do to furniture. I neither have children, nor have I taught children. But Ive seen Daddy Day Care and that was enough to know that things break when children are invited to do their worst. If children were to work with our Research and Design lab, I think theyd come up with some interesting new tests. I remember using Lifetime Banquet Tables as slides in our game room. Then my sisters and I would put foam mats on top of them and use them as tall beds for sleepovers. I have a vague memory of reenacting the princess and the pea once lucky for me, no injuries were incurred. Anyway,the other day a co-worker gavegave mean ingenious idea-- The Pre-School Experiment. She suggested that we donate a Lifetim...
A Pest-proof (and Bear-proof) Composter
Using a composter is a great way to reduce, reuse, and recycle yard and kitchen waste. Unfortunately, humans aren't the only ones who have figured out the benefits of compostingpests and rodents have, too! I frequently hear on Twitter and online forums from people who have squirrels, rats, and other pesky critters taking advantage of the free dining facility in their backyard composter. Eeeew! As unpleasant as that may be, I do have good news... we've designed the Lifetime Compost Tumbler to be pest-proof! How? First, we made it a little trickier for pests to climb onto a Lifetime Composter bin by raising it off the ground on a weather-resistant steel frame. But, even if critters do manage to make it onto the bin of a Lifetime Composter, the double-walled, high-density polyethylene shell prevents rodents from eating a hole i...
Rich Snippets: Coming Soon to a Search Engine Near You!
Search engines not only display content, they spider web pages, gathering information from your pages, then re-work all that information into a listing that searchers see when they're looking for stuff -- and the cycle is complete. When a person goes to a search engine they have a good idea of what theyre looking for (otherwise they'll be on StumbleUpon, right?). With millions of search results being found and displayed, sometimes it's hard for people to find what they're looking for among all those results. To help combat that, Google is trying to show searchers more information about their search results. Information about information? That sounds a lot like meta-data! Yes, yes it does! Here at Lifetime, we're starting to roll out web pages that will take advantage of Google's "Rich Snippits" to get more information...
