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.
