American Heritage Wheelbarrow

We have introduced  a 19th century design utilizing known earlier techniques in joint construction combined with practical iron work to allow for easier side(s) removal.

The use of a 20 inch diameter wheelbarrow wheel will push or pull a heavy load over rough terrain much easier than smaller diameter wheels. All the wood selected is for durability in weather and use including all white oak frame, steam bent hickory wheel with 1/4 inch thick iron rim, mahogany flooring and sides. The wheelbarrow is very strong and has two coats of barn red over primer finish. The handles have a hook shape at their ends for ease in pulling. The rails protrude well forward of the axle to aid in tipping a heavy load. Iron reinforcement at ends of legs and rails also serve as wear protection. The steel axle is a full 1/2 inch diameter with a 1 inch wearing surface easy to keep greased so is is quiet and long lasting.

This is not a lawn decoration but a reach back to the past design that is practical for the home farmer.  With the American Heritage Wheelbarrow one can  enjoy working with planting or harvesting, hauling chopped wood or fertilizer with properly designed tool.

Each wheelbarrow is individually hand made in the old fashioned way and because of cost shipping is best picked up at my workshop in New Jersey.

Price is $650.00 plus 7% NJ sales tax.

R & R TOONE | FIELD EQUIPAGE

Have a look at my museum-quality reproduction travel furnishings from 1740-1790. Including folding beds, chests, tables, chairs, wheelbarrows and all manner of accessories. I have been dedicated to meeting the needs of museums, historical sites, and officers in the field.
Until further notice, I will not be taking any new orders due to an extended illness.
However, I will be attending some history venues and demonstrating horn making on the spring pole lathe.
