Warm and fuzzy wheelbarrow repair

wheelbarrow repair medium shotThe only thing the new wheel needs is a locking nut, which will have to wait for the next town trip.

I know the body is rusted and has holes, but this repair gives me a warm fuzzy feeling that a new wheelbarrow could never deliver.

Good job, one less wheelbarrow in the landfill.

I think that little wheelbarrow may have started at the landfill.... One of ours did, as I recall, but Mark saved it's life. :-)

This wheelbarrow was a hand-me-down from my mom.

The one that I called "Ramshackled Wheelbarrow" was saved from the dump...Thanks again Dennis.
