Guys, last month I picked up this wheelbarrow cart and since then I've cleaned it up a little and figured I'd share. Nothing too special, but I like it. I know there are a few more here under member care, hopefully we can get a looksee at the others in this thread if anybody cares to show 'em. Anyways...

Nice looking little trailer. Like the color scheme, really sets it off.

Thanks guys! I'm actually planning to take it down again whopp about two more coats on the out with three more on the in, then possibly add somethings to buffer the heavy scuff zones, before shooting clear & buff. BTW my release/lifter handle thingy is repurposed from mop (w/ the squeezey action)... I know there are more out there amongst us..?..
My choice to stay close to the original color was actually inspired by grnspot110's redo that appeared in a web search for similar carts.'schoolbus yellow' was my color shade, as it has that safety 1st appeal, IMO. My plow blade and maybe one or two other things will also be wearing it.

Now Don't be :watch_over_fence: Let's have a Wheelbarrow roundup!!!

Then there's the JD #30 cart:

I also have a picture of a "Radio Flyer" garden cart, looked just like the JD 30 above, except red in color.

Don't know if it was factory or custom. My guess is, radio Flyer made the 30 for JD. ~~ Lowell
