Ramshackled repair update

wheel barrow fixedI figure if the ramshackled wheel barrow makes it through its first week back on the job then its got a bright future here on the farm.

No complaints from its main operator after several heavy trips.

I predict this fix to last around 2 years.

Good job! One less broken wheelbarrow in the landfill (or behind the barn). I had to replace the handle on mine because ants had built a nest inside and made the handle weak. This was a new one on me, I have never seen this before.

That's a new one to me too! It seems like handles must be the weakest link in wheelbarrow construction. Good thing they're relatively easy to replace!
