Somewhere I remember seeing a warranty description for the Jackson
Professional Tools wheelbarrow tire and tube from Home Depot.
Do you know anything about that?
The wheelbarrow is a few years ago and I don't have the receipt
(who saves that stuff anyway?)
The 4.80/4.00-8 (whatever that means) tire (with tube inside) won't hold air.
Would you get a new tire or would you just buy a new tube (or patch it)?
Any idea if there is a warranty?
I don't have a "Jackson" but I did buy my wheelbarrow at HD.
When my tire lost air, I called the number for the manufacturer
and they shipped me a new one. No questions asked, the tires
are guaranteed for the life of the wheelbarrow.
As a public service to the team, I found out that you can get a *free*
wheel assembly from Ames (who makes the steel "Jackson" wheelbarrow that
Home Depot sells).
I found this out by calling 800-807-2589 (x1 customer service) and speaking
with Tracy at x3588.
The procedure is:
1. Snap pictures of the entire wheelbarrow
2. Send your name/address/phone & pictures to email@example.com
3. Tell them why you think it failed prematurely
Even though your wheelbarrow may be years out of the 90-day original
warranty, if it wasn't abused, they will most likely send you a free
pre-assembled pre-inflated wheel assembly containing:
All you have to do is remove the old wheel-and-rim and put the new
wheel-and-rim on the axle (and grease the axle).
Good to know!
