Wheel Easy Wheelbarrow

Yeah, it’s a wheelbarrow. Borrrring, you say. Not so. In fact, the redesigning of commonplace things is really where the excitement begins. We all get used to how things look and function, and sometimes we forget that simple improvements can make a huuuge difference. Case in point, this wheelbarrow.
The metal container is replaced by durable, vinyl-coated canvas. This means you load it from the ground, no repetitive lifting. Just sweep/push/roll whatever you’re moving onto the canvas. If you’ve ever raked leaves or done other yardwork, you’ll know this would make one heck of a difference. The cart’s center of gravity is low, so you lift a smaller portion of weight too. Also, it’s collapsible for easy storage and transport. All this improves the quality of life for those of us moving/gardening/cleaning/etc., which is the whole point of design, isn’t it?
The canvas supports up to 150 lbs.
