    Timber, I haven't bought one yet, but I'm looking at those also. The big 1,000 capacity one looks awesome for hauling soil and amendments.

    I have an Earthtools power wheelbarrow. It does works well and is a good design. I use it with my 737 and find it is the ticket for an old guy like me for moving stuff up and down hilly terrain.

    Will this power-barrow go down the same bank as well as it goes up?

    Yes, it goes down quite well also. I was hauling full loads of rock down, dirt back up. Helps to have a place to stop(flat), and you do need to go straight up and down, no cross slope. the gears keep it slow, and sometimes I back down the hill. Also note I added a brake to the 725 The tub is also locked down, won't dump until I want to.

    Very cool. How hard was it to add the brake?

    The brake is not too hard to install. Ordered from Earthworks, have to take off wheel and pull hub, then just put it all back. Pulling the hub was interesting, don't remember exactly how, then lining up the peices is just like a puzzle.....I'm not good at puzzles so that took a little while

    Hi Jobob,

    I assume you know this, but thought it should be said anyway -

    Keep in mind that adding a brake to a solid axle machine is not the same as having a machine with locking differential and steering brakes. Both wheels will still turn at the same time all the time. It is a parking brake and a slow-down brake, not a steering brake.

    Very true, that brake is just a whoa brake- not turning brakes. It only works for stopping and as a parking brake. One of these days maybe I will be able to afford a BCS with a diff.

    Of course not. The model numbers don't speak to me in terms of axle/differential types.
