I've been looking at the high wheel (looks like bike wheels but stronger) 1
or 2 cubic yard carts. Friend has one, I forget the name, and it rolls
easily with a good sized load and you can pull the front closure and dump
the load readily. Several of the garden supply catalogs carry them and a few
of the places like Home Depot and Lowe's carry them. I have seen several in
the Northern catalog and, the next time I get the catalog, may order one.
Our old wheelbarrow is about 30 years old, with a solid front wheel and is a
real pain to push around. Just hate to throw anything out so may try to
rework the old one for light duty use.
