Steel tray and handles--good
But only one non flat-free tire.

Some heavy-duty wheelbarrows have dual tires, with both being flat-free. If you have ever been in the middle of a project moving heavy stuff and the wheel goes flat, it's not too fun. That's likely why this one is on clearance.

Could you swap out the tire for a flat free tire?

I'm sure you could. But read the reviews before going to all of that trouble. It sounds like the design of this unit is such that it bottoms out easily due to the front metal brace. That's a deal killer for me.

Yeah, I was ready to pull the trigger but read the reviews.

Yeah, I have this model and hate it. It sucks because the nose catches on everything, which is a total PITA (especially if you have any momentum). I thought it was because I'm about 6.5' tall, but the nose also catches for my 5.5' tall wife. Don't even attempt using it on lawn or soft surfaces...it even catches on hard, flat surfaces like cement and asphalt. I don't know if it could be improved with a larger diameter tire or by cutting back the front ends of the handlebars behind the nose iron/guard. Don't waste your time.

Good price. Was tempted, but poor reviews. Sounds like there are fundamental issues with the design.

And good luck ever getting warranty service from Truper. I tried multiple times for a manure fork that fell apart and couldn't even get a response.

Can't I just remove the wheel guard, which is what catches the ground? The wheel guard is what touches the ground, right? And it is supposed to protect the wheel, right?

Thanks everybody who pointed out the reviews. Pass. (don't be sad; it was never a deal to begin with)

As a contractor, unequivocally a metal tub and tubeless tires is the only way to fly
