wheeled manure carts
« on: July 21, 2015, 03:45:05 pm »

I have a wheelbarrow I share with the rest of the farm, and it is often in use elsewhere when I want to use it.  I am familiar with the wheelbarrow, the pros and the cons.
If I buy something just for me to use, I am open to other types of wheeled containers.

So, I would like to know what other people have and what you like and don't like about what you have.  pictures of links are helpful.

there is a new wheelbarrow out from worx that seems handy as all get out with some adjustments and all kinds of other uses - personally I'd wait until they put taller tires on it for barn use   https://www.worx.com/en-US/Aerocart.aspx

for barn use my next wheelbarrow will have the taller tires and more than just one centered tire (ugh).  I like the hard plastic ones only because the metal ones seem to rust out so fast.   I know there was one I bookmarked but can't find it  - one I did like and can find is this one...  https://www.ursawagon.com/

I have a big yellow one with the double wheels that is strictly for barn use, but still I go out to clean the barn and it has wandered off to another part of the "farm". So if you get one that the other members of your family happen to like better than the wheelbarrow you already quit sharing because it was never there when you needed it, then you might have to get two. :)

There is no one here to share anything with, much less an instrument of work.

no one here has ever volunteered to "take" the wheelbarrow either... now I might forget where I put it ...  :-)

I researched this issue extensively last year after having yet another wheelbarrow bite the dust in our hot humid environment. Bought one of these:  http://shop.mullerscarts.com/utility-cart-free-shipping-us48/

For some reason not all of my posting was posted...this is what I bought: http://shop.mullerscarts.com/smart-carts-original-contractor-grade/
Stupidly expensive, but worth every penny. I bought it with the big inflatable tires, not the bike wheels. I also bought the piece that you can add to enable you to pull it with a lawn tractor. I can move hay, brush, mulch, etc. easily. A quick hosing and it's great. And...NO RUST!!

I use the rubbermaid muck carts.They work great for me and I've found some used ones on craigslist lately for $50.So now I have four of them and can usually find one of them to use.I am in the process of replacing tube tires for hard rubber ones.

Mine is a small wheel barrow with a light weight plastic bucket. I love it because I can dump it into the bucket of the tractor and it is light enough for me to pick up to finish emptying. I've used the big double wheel carts and wagons and I find them to be too heavy for my use, too wide for my narrow bar isle and then I am just temped to fill them so full I can dump them. I also have a flat cart wagon that I use to move hay bales and bags of bedding.

I used a wheelbarrow, a small spreader, muck carts and a small wagon.

I ended up with a slightly larger wagon like this http://www.homedepot.com/p/TriCam-1000-lb-Capacity-Heavy-Duty-Steel-Utility-Cart-MH2121D/204140473
I put a muck bucket in it...a square one that I got at walmart. I can pull it out to the pasture with the ATV and dump it. Not as convienient as the spreader, but since I can't find a chain for the spreader, it works for me.

I've had the same Muller's cart for 4 years, and the pan is still under warranty. Very light weight. Truthfully, I use my ATV with 2 muck buckets loaded on the back basket because I can get the job done in half the time in foul weather, rain or sun.

I am revisiting this thread as today I must buy something.  I have been borrowing my sons regular wheelbarrow, and he has the audacity to want to use it himself! 

So any other comments before I hit the farm and fleet?

Wanting to use his own stuff, that's just not right.  I vote for the double from wheel.  That will be my next one .

This one always gets high marks, but is too expensive for  me:

I like the rubbermaid big cart, but its pretty high too.

I don't want one that I fix flat tires!.....

Right now mine is broken - a cheap plastic garden wheel barrow I picked up on sale about 15 years ago......I want a big rubbermaid I think.
