Finished my 'wheelbarrow' rebuild Friday. A total redo that included the sandblast of all metal components, a new front solid tire, new wood, and a 'rattle can' paint job . . . And, all new nuts, bolts, and washers and exclusive JD logo stickers.

The old, I've had this wheelbarrow so long I'm not sure when I bought it. I think it was shortly after moving into this place in September of 1977. . . Hmm, forty years. :laugh:

And the rebuild . . . :thumbup1gif:

I realize the 'paint job' will only last till I use it the first time, but it will be in the shop when not in use and that should help it last. I won't be around, but someone else will enjoy it after me.

:laugh: Thought the same.


Great Job!!! :bigthumb: If my wife saw that she'd say its too good to use and have it sitting somewhere full of flowers as a planter.
Missey would do the same thing if I'd let her. . . She knows this one is a tool to use. :bigthumb:

Looks great Marlin. I had a wheelbarrow exactly like that. I bought it at a big box store called 'HQ' in North Carolina in 1992. Like yours, the handles finally rotted off.

My question is, why do you need a wheelbarrow now? I use my bucket for EVERY task where I used to use a wheelbarrow!

I for one, just used my wheelbarrow within the last couple weeks. It comes in handy when the lawn is too wet to take the tractor onto.:good2:

I'm with Tim. My wheelbarrow went in the trash when my tractor came home!

Very nice job, good idea with the solid tire, I have one like that and almost as old, every time I ever went to use it the tire was flat. :nunu:

Haven't used mine in a long time, for some reason the handles just never did fit my hands right. :laugh:
