It’s space saving. Light. And user-friendly. Everything a gardener could wish for. We’re digging this HomeBarrow, which has replaced our old-school, heavy one and has made life in the garden a whole lot easier. Designed and made locally, it’s ergonomically designed, with the weight closer to the wheel for easier lifting.
It offers ground level loading, which means you can roll, push or rake straight into the tray. It has a low center of gravity … so less ‘tippiness’, and can be emptied with very little effort – over the front, out the side or pour off the back, whatever style you prefer. Plus, and we love this one, it has a cleverly-designed swivel wheel steering mechanism, so you will be taking corners with ease. No more forward, reverse, forward, reverse, forward. Oh, and the wheel is completely puncture proof, and it has a useful dry pocket.
It’s great for small gardens, for the beach (load up everything and simply push to your spot on the sand), to ferry wood to the braai, or to use when camping (one trip from car to tent). And when you’re finished, it simply folds away. It’s just 8kg, stores as a flat pack, and takes just a couple of nuts and bolts to put it back together again in minutes.
