Best Wheelbarrows UK 2024 – Sizes


Do you need a robust and reliable or even a heavy duty Wheelbarrow for your garden in the coming days or weeks? If so, then check out this quick review for our top 5 best Wheelbarrows currently available in the UK at present which are on sale from a range of different UK based suppliers. If you also need a Wheelbarrow with a puncture free feature, then you are in the right place as we have a suggestion further below on this page to meet this requirement.

Accurate Information

As only price guides can be shown at the time of this review, please make sure to view the price checkers provided below to help ensure you have the most accurate up to date price information. A  short video summary is also included which covers the main points you need to know and it will give you a better understanding of what these UK based Wheelbarrows are all about before you commit to a purchase.

Supply Base

Getting your hands on a reliable Wheelbarrow is a little more difficult than you would think as they become out of stock quite frequently and not every garden centre will have a reliable or a plentiful range of stocks for you to choose from. Most of these Wheelbarrows can be ordered online and delivered to your home while some will operate a click and collect system at their local stores but all of them are supplied as a UK supply base with an already established trade history.

Wheelbarrow Types

So that you have a varied choice to view through from this list, we have included Polypropylene Wheelbarrows as well as Galvanised steel Wheelbarrows and a selection would be considered as heavy duty which can be used domestically or even by tradesmen or tradeswomen. These would be better suited for larger type project work due to the stronger frames to cater for larger workloads and the stronger wheelbarrow types will come with the additional front metal brace supports.

Wheelbarrow Sizes

If you just need a wheelbarrow for lighter type garden work chores, then the smaller 65 litre capacity will do the trick for you but if you need a larger wheelbarrow for carrying higher volumes on a frequent basis, then you should be looking to get your hands on a Wheelbarrow with a capacity of 80 litres to 100 litres instead.

Please note though that the larger Wheelbarrows will be more difficult to carry when full so make sure you have enough strength and power in your own arms before committing to a larger type Wheelbarrow capacity as they can hold well over 150kg of material weight.

  1. We have used wheelbarrows for the past few months usually at weekends and my husband and I are considering moving some heavier gravel out of our back yard so we need something more robust and easier to use – never heard of Walsall before so thanks for the heads up…
