Richmond carry a range of wheelbarrows to cater for all these trades and environments, most commonly bowl selection is determined by the primary use of the wheelbarrow.
A plastic bowl wheelbarrow is a common choice for landscapers, gardeners and around the home. They are suited to shifting a variety of materials including: mulch, mud and sand.
A steel bowl wheelbarrow is most commonly used by bricklayers and when shoveling loads or mixing materials together inside the bowl, this is because the steel tray is more resilient to a shovel and more abrasive loads such as cement. They are suited to shifting materials such as: rocks, bricks, sand, tiles, pavers and concrete.
Richmond has a heavier duty builder’s barrow option in the steel bowl available that features a thicker bowl wall, reinforced nose and heavy gauge handles.
