Garage and Garden Shed Space Savers - Collapsible Wheelbarrows and Carts

Updated on March 20, 2013

Many people would love to have a wheelbarrow. But the problem is, they take up so much room in your garage or garden shed. Then, if there is other stuff stored, a large wheelbarrow is hard to get out. The fact that you have a large empty space inside your wheelbarrow means that it attracts clutter and so gets buried and then it’s easier to leave it buried than get it out and use it. The solution to your cramped garden shed or garage is a collapsible or folding wheelbarrow..

Generally they are great for light to medium jobs and easy to clean. Because the body of the wheelbarrow is made from material, they tend to be lighter to use.

The minus of a folding wheelbarrow is that the body is made of material and so in time it may tear. A huge plus is that your folding wheelbarrow will easily fit in the trunk of your car.

One variation is a collapsible cart, or fold-a-cart. Here are some suggestions for you to ponder.

On the Edge Folding Wheelbarrow


This wheelbarrow is 61 inches long, 34 inches wide and 9 inches deep.

This was voted one of the top ten gardening products of the year by the Wall Street journal. The canvas lies flat on the ground while you load it, then you pick up the handles and push it with the one wheel to move. This is available in two sizes, the large wheelbarrow has a capacity of 350 pounds and the small version holds up to 150 pounds.

The canvas is nylon fabric coated with vinyl so you can easily hose it when you have finished using it.

Allsop WheelEasy Folding Yard Cart


This is the larger version of the WheelEasy which holds up to 350 pounds. It comes with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty.

Taylor Green Living Folding Wheelbarrow


This wheelbarrow will hold up to 250 pounds and folds down to 11 inches by 11 inches. It will hang by a hook in your garage or shed. The fabric is water resistant polyester. The tires are filled with air. The wheelbarrow is lightweight weighing only 18 pounds. It's even made of recycled material.

Vertex Folding Yard and Utility Cart


This cart measures 26 x 30 x 37 inches. The bag is 19.5 inches deep. Its capacity is 150 pounds. The cart folds easily for storage. It has a heavy duty nylon bag and steel frame.

Fold-A-Tools Fold-A-Cart


This cart carries up to 200 pounds and 6 cubic feet. The material is made from Flextron which is puncture resistant. It is covered by a 10-year warranty. The cart is stable and easy to maneuver even over rough terrain. It folds down to 20% of its size in seconds.

Dimensions L x W x H (in.): 42 x 31 1/2 x 26

The wheelbarrows come needing assembly, some also come with a video to show you how. Once you've gone past the assembly stage I'm sure you will love the ease of use and small space needed to store your collapsable wheelbarrow.
