I read the other reviews. A couple of comments about them. Difficult assembly - from the other comments, I was expecting much worse. Perhaps some cheese with that "whine" would help. I did find a couple of burrs left in the bolt holes on two of the braces. I put the braces in my vise and one whack with a chisel took care of it. Wheels - mine are fine. Shipped with low pressure. Added a little air to firm them up. There may be a quality problem from several other comments. But what is the percentage? Low I expect from the number of complaints. Will Ace correct the problems? I suspect the answer is yes from the excellent customer service I have always received from them in the past.

This is the best wheelbarrow I have ever owned. It is rock solid and a little heavy. Not too heavy for me, but maybe for some. I think it is the perfect combination of strength versus weight. The dual wheels make it extremely stable. Every time I grab the handles to lift, I'm expecting to have to stabilize it. Not so. Nice anytime, wonderful with a heavy load.

I'm replacing the fences around my property. Never built fencing before. I'm enjoying it. I'm over 60 and retired. I really appreciate the stability of the dual wheels. I throw all my needed tools in the wheelbarrow for one trip to the worksite. Then I unload and go to the lumber stack and load up. I don't have to worry about overloading. During post installation, I was loading 80lb bags of concrete. I found 4 bags was as much as I wanted to lift and the wheelbarrow handled that easily and with stability.

I've got a dog that likes to stay near me. She is old and likes to ride. In the past, she has tried to jump in my old wheelbarrow. She always jumps out again, because it is so unstable. It is lighter weight and has one wheel. She jumped in this new one, she rode around to the back yard and I had to coax her to get out. Now that's a testimonial - my dog likes it.

I've had mine about a year now. It hauls dirt and a lot of firewood. It's a decent wheelbarrow. The dual wheels are VERY nice with heavy loads and uneven terrain. We use ours hard, and really appreciate the extra stability.

It's not all that sturdy. Certainly not contractor grade. I reinforced it by cuttting a piece of 5/8" OSB to fit between the tub and the handles, thus strengthening the whole assembly and especially the bottom. Tossing in chunks of firewood can beat it up pretty badly.

ASSEMBLY: I see some folks complaning about assembly. All I can say is, if you find this difficult, please stay away from power tools.

My wheels came assembled with the tires already on the rims, I assume by store personnel, and they pinched an innertube, so one wheel never held air very long. I patched it yesterday, as it had gotten too bad to get any work done. Next time I have a problem I'll get pre-Slimed tubes.

The web site lists a replacement "tire", and for some strange reason, they call it a "16x4 Replacement Tire". It's not a tire, it's a wheel. (The tire is just the rubber part. A wheel is a complete rim and tire assembly, which is what they seem to be selling.)

And it's not 16x4, it's a standard 4.80/4.00-8 tire (which has a 15.5" diameter). If you need an inner tube, that's the size you want. Try to find an angled valve, though. They are hard to find.

    Ace Steel Wheelbarrow
    Item no: 7331721 | 082901266693 is just the item you really need. With the two wheels, it makes maneuvering easier. It seems almost tip proof. I am a bit older and being a widowed female the strength you would need to carry loads is just not there all the time. So when I saw this one, I jjust went and bought it. ACE Hardware in Deland FL assembles their wheelbarrows! So thank you and pricing it so I can afford it too. KKC Glenwood FL

        6 months old. Wheel hubs have rusted and leak air where they join the wheel assembly. Tires go flat in 10 minutes.

                Read the other reviews. The wheels are far from true. One of the wheels wobbles so bad it is hard to push the wheelbarrow straight! I called customer services since I bought it online. I was simply told to return it to the store for a refund. No option of sending me a good wheel just return it. Never again - why I thought I could buy an Ace branded item and think I was getting a good deal is beyond me!

                  Stable to carry heavier products even for not so strong people or kids. The two wheel design makes it easy to manover andmake it effortless for s.o. back.
                  The only issue with the design are the two tone grips which come loose easily and cause the thing to drop out of your hands. A design change is necessary. If your dealer cannot fix it and nor can you than better look at the ones with the wooden handels. Too bad!
                  Otherwise very reliable.

                    I bought mine pre-assemmbled at the hardware store, and because some earlier reviewers had cautioned about wobbly wheels I was sure to flip the wheelbarrow over and give the wheels a spin. Sure enough, one was wobbly as a drunken sailor! The clerk quickly swapped it out with another and problem solved. So far so good... carrying topsoil and firewood is fine. Thanks to all who write these reviews!

                        Purchase June 2016. Mine came with steel handles and very nice molded grips, an added bonus. For those who are complaining about float or movement in the wheels, reverse the axle supports. The "long side" should be facing out towards the hub.

                        The assembly is cumbersome and the directions are adequate but not great. Make sure you use the correct length bolts for each step, there is a group of bolts that are only 1/4" difference.

                        After your first few uses, flip the barrow over and re-tighten all bolts.

                        This is an excellent tool and VERY easy to handle heavy loads. Just deal with the assembly issues, once done it is well worth it.

                        Used to haul wood chips and manure in yard. Great capacity and design but execution leaves a lot to be desired. Plastic handles not attached properly so needed to reattach using high strength epoxy. After owning it for one day both tires are flat. I would recommend getting solid tires which I did from Harbor Freight on sale.

                        I would only use the light duty wheelbarrow for hauling around wood chips, grass clippings & leaves, small loads of pavers, gravel, and dirt - (don't exceed 150 lbs. of hauling weight). The poor quality of the wheels to so bad, if you intend using for heavy than 150 lbs. loads, replace both wheels with HIGHER quality wheels. If you ask for this wheelbarrow to be pre-assembled, make sure the Ace Hardware staff tighten all the bolts securely, don't let them leave gaps underneath the bolts connecting the wheelbarrow to the handles!!!

                          Wheels float back and forth on axle making it difficult to steer. With this set up the wheel can float to the inside by almost 2" each. When moving heavy loads or light it tracks where it wants to. Your always over correcting your path to where you are going. Poor design here.

                            I purchased two of these wheelbarrows 2 years ago. In that time I have put tubes in all of the thin tires. The rims are so flimsy they bend under load. The red paint cannot withstand 1 month in the sun. It has turned pink and is peeling off. The tub is rusting and bent with the first load of dirt. The grips are poorly glued to the handles and will slide off when you least expect it. The handles were too long and stuck out too far past the front of the wheels. It would bottom out and come to an abrupt stop and result in you walking into the wheelbarrow. I had to cut 3-4" off the handles to alleviate this. Overall, this wheelbarrow is maybe good for the occasional user, not the professional or avid homeowner.

                              I mainly use this wheelbarrow to haul fire wood. It is the "only" 6 cubic ft steel tub wheel barrow made that won't break your wallet! It is a "GREAT" and tough wheelbarrow.

                              I beat them to death with firewood and it takes all kinds of abuse!
                              I hope ACE never quits making this wheelbarrow. There is none better for the money!

                                It takes two people to put together, but once you do, your arms and back will appreciate it! I've never used a two-wheeled wheel barrow before, and couldn't believe how much easier it was to haul. You also don't have to worry about dropping your load when emptying blocks from the wheel barrow should the load become off-center. Same is true when walking with a heavy load...it won't tip over on you. Just lift and walk!

                                    Product is great. Communication and shipping from Ace site-to-store was poor. Had to call Ace, and had to call the store. If I hadn't called the store 4 days ago I still wouldn't know my wheelbarrow was ready to pick up.

                                    Since I am no longer a youngster and have back problems I was looking for a whell barrow that was easy on the back but functional. This fits the bill. The big Ace logo plate supplies very good stiffness. Having the 4 point base makes filling easy where you don't need to worry about tipping. The hardware is all heavy duty. It takes a bit of getting used to turning it as I am used to the 1-wheel motorcycle "lean" turns. Unless you have 4 arms it is very difficult to assemble especially putting on the main pan. You need one hand to hold in the bolt from the top, at least one to align the base, shim and pan, and one to put on the bolt. Oooops! I ended up temporarily duct taping in the bolt from the top. This is useful to also rotate the carriage bolts to fit in the square notches. Other reviewers mentioned that there were no carriage bolt square knockouts in the metal but mine did. I needed to bash some in with tight fits. With two people it would be pretty easy. The wheels have bearings and roll smoothly. The down sides are manageable. I haven't run into the handles pulling off but will easily epoxy them if this happens. The shaft doesn't fit right and the wheels slop back an forth a bit but I'll get some washers to fix this. It's a bit difficult to dump. Even with loose dirt quite a bit will remain in the front of the pan. I attribute this to the either new paint friction and/or the depth of the pan. My other wheelbarrow was not as deep with other dimensions bigger to make up for it and fully dumped. It is stable tilted up so you can either hand sweep out the remnants or do a "side rollover" dump. Because of the depth it holds a lot of dirt for a not-so-big and easy to handle wheelbarror. Bottom line, I am happy with my unit. I usually leave mine outside but will cover this one to extend it's life. It seems to have features better than more expensive units I looked at at the big box hardware stores. I had a problem where when I tried to buy this the only available pick up location was a hike. I called my local store and they ordered it themselves to pickup at their store.

                                    Very surprised at how thin, cheap and bent the wheels were. Not high quality at all.
                                    Was difficult to assemble, because all bolts were included, but some just weren't the correct length. How to run into town to get the correct carriage bolts.
                                    Great price, but now I know why.

                                      Very nice wheel barrel. Solid construction. One area to improve on is the wheels has too much play left to right. I had to purchase 4 washers (two per wheel) to fill in the space so the wheels to not wobble back and forth. Other than that, very nice wheel barrel.

                                            This is a nice wheelbarrow, I like the dual wheel idea, however I had to made some spacers for each side of the axle so the wheels don't drift back and forth. They allowed for about 2 inches of slop on the axle after assembly, and adding a few tubular spacers would not have added to the cost of it. Also the rubber grip handles had to be glued on, because when I went to lift the wheelbarrow after filling it with topsoil the rubber grip handle slid right off and the load tipped over, much to my frustration. So I had to put adhesive on the handle and slip the rubber grips on tight or they slip right off. When I picked up the wheelbarrow and brought it home it already had a nice sized dent in the bottom corner which I had to use the rubber mallet on to fix it. I think Quality Control needs a look at these problems. I also lined the inside of the steel tub with an extra thick plastic and duct taped it all around the edges to keep the wheelbarrow in decent shape. I remeove the plastic when not using it so it wont rust prematurely. I know it's only a wheelbarrow, but I like to keep my tools in good condition. You may also want to put a few drops of oil on the wheel bearing collars and axle to keep it rolling smootly for a long time. The tires are pneumatic and I like that part, plus they are 16 inch tires which makes rolling it a lot easier with a heavy load. Overall I would give it 5 stars but after having to do so much fixing on it just to assembble it I only rate it at a 4, but it is a good product. If it were made in the USA I think it would not have needed so much after work when I brought it home.

                                              People wrote it was hard to assemble? I sure didn't so, I had my rachet wrench and my sister's help and us two women did just fine. It really was nice to have a second person, one person would be a bit tuff.

                                              Bought one in Florida and used it to haul various things and to mix and place concrete.
                                              Very stable. Won't tip over even when heavily loaded with concrete.
                                              Paint scratches easily, but it's a STEEL tub so repainting isn't difficult.
                                              Seriously thinking of buying a second one to use in Maine.

                                              Someone commented on the amount of end-shake the wheels on THEIR wheelbarrow had, and suggested buying spacers to slide over the axle. Ours was pre-assembled. When I noted that the wheels were rather loose, the local dealer threw in some washers gratis. I removed the wheels and installed the washers to fill the gap. Voila! Problem solved.

                                              Because the barrow is SO stable, dumping it is sometimes a problem. It's obviously designed to dump from the FRONT. But the steel plate that contacts the ground when you try to dump the barrow is so located that you have to lift the wheels quite some distance off the ground. You're initially lifting at least half the weight of the full barrow! As the center of mass is directly over the plate, you're not actually LIFTING anything, but unless you're really tall, your arms are reaching for the sky while trying to shake the handles to dump the load. IF the next one is a kit, I'll experiment with various home-engineering fixes to see if I can make it a little better. If not, it's still a pretty good wheelbarrow. I think it may be slightly larger than the contractor wheelbarrow we now have in Maine, but it sure pushes a lot easier--full or empty. And, empty, it can be driven one-handed.

                                                  I purchased this wheel barrow as the yard cart I bought a year ago does not handle to good when moving dirt. This wheel barrow is all steel and I just loaded it up with gravel and it moves and handles so easy. I wished I had bought it last year. It dumps easy and with the two wheels is very stable and makes it easy to move when full.

                                                  Use in barn to haul manure and dirty hay. Small size helpful in center aisle. The wheelbarrow wobbles because the factory did not get them straight. A second one in the store had the same problem. Already assembled at store when purchased but assembled incorrectly. Returned and manager tried some fix. Took it back and assembly corrected but wheel wobble. Scratched first time used it. Do not buy!!!!

                                                  wheelbarrow is well built and strong but when i assemble it one of the brackets holes was rounded out so the bolts had no where to grip. i had to use hex head bolts to install this part. also the bolts that came with it were cheap had to replace 3 or 4 of them because they had the square corners rounded off and would not hold when tighting them.
