Bought one the other day unassembled. There is a cross brace that goes
between the 2 legs that isn't shaped correctly - and the wheel wobbles cause
the axle is too small in diameter. I checked the Home Depot assembled ones
and they are all the same.
I got an argument from customer service so I used the cross brace as is but
the wheel wobble would drive me nuts. I happened to have a small piece of
roof flashing that I had saved - .017 (seventeen thousands) thick. I cut a
small piece to wrap around the axle - and wallah - the wobble is gone. I
called customer service to tell them of the fix but I could tell by the
questions the rep asked that he had very little idea what I was talking
about. I would assume they get calls regularly about the wobble problem -
you would think they would correct it.
True Temper makes several grades of wheelbarrows & if you buy 1 from a
big box store You will most likely get mixed up parts. What you got
was a cheap model with a higher price model's wheel that uses a larger
axle. I would insist on all the correct parts for the one you paid

Does that mean you can get a discount now? that would be handy!
Their parts locator on the site is really nice, instead of having a washer
or dryer fixed, I pull the part and order it, no matter the manufacturer.

"I've owned my Loadumper for years. It is by far the best cart I've ever
owned. Easy to move loads without lifting - and the dump feature is amazing!
I'd say whatever age or gender you are, this is the cart for all your
outdoor chores. I've used it for firewood, gravel, mulch soil, planting
trees - you name it."
Don't you have Google in your part of the world?
$190 - you must be kidding - that's for contractors only (or the wealthy
like you). I was talking the $30 homeowners model which was only a couple
dollars more than replacing the wheel on my old wheelbarrow.
btw, "Ergonomically engineered" got my attention. The marketing people at
Big Blue like to use that terminology and I , as "truth-in-advertising"
monitor. always enjoyed requesting them to document proof of their claims.
