Walsall Wheelbarrows Shire Pneumatic Wheelbarrow Green 90Ltr
I purchased this barrow for domestic use from Screwfix on the basis that their products are mainly geared to the trade and it would most likely be strong and durable. After moving a few loads of (admittedly wet) soil, the flimsy handles (just 20mm in diameter) buckled. I thought I would give the manufacturers (Walsall) the opportunity to comment but they failed to respond to several emails. All credit to Screwfix, their polite and helpful staff readily refunded the purchase price and I have no hesitation in continuing to buy their products. In defence of their enviable reputation for quality and service, Screwfix should seriously consider stopping selling this item.

Bought this wheelbarrow (which is not cheap) for gardening/building work. The metal body is extremely thin gauge, there is no bracing across from body to legs, when in use it twists and buckles, basically it is not really any use other for very light pottering. Put any reasonable weight in it and it twists and bends and is a nightmare to keep upright and steer.

Wheelbarrow appears to be good quality for the price.
Putting it together was easy, although one handle fitted so snuggly in the frame that it removed the paint.
Handle grips are hard plastic which is not great but will not be in constant use.

OK but a little weak maybe
Ok for gardening but not really strong enough for building work as the frame is quite small and weak in my opinion .... this does make it light weight though I suppose ....
