Sherlock Steel Barrows are a hoax and con and should not be sold in Australia. On my 4th one in 6 years.

published

OK,

bought a number of the steel barrows from bunnings. Use it for gardening and they do get scratched. Issue is that a single scratch will rust through in about 9 months. USELESS. RUST RUST RUST.

Purchased in November 2019 at Bunnings Warehouse for $100.00.

Broke on the way home

published

Broke the tray on the way home from Bunnings in the trailer. It’s brittle and not polypropylene as advertised…. Although it only says “poly” maybe it means Polly wants a cracker…. Grrrr

Purchased in July 2021 at Bunnings Warehouse for $200.00.

Very average wheelbarrow

published

Got a new sherlock wheelbarrow from bunnings. first day the wheel assembly fell apart. Had to reassemble properly. Paint is now falling off in huge flakes and the steel is rusting. Obviously was not properly prepared before it was painted. Cheaply made Chinese crap
My advice is to Buy a kelso.

Purchased in April 2020 at Bunnings Warehouse for $260.00.

“Lasts Longer” branding doesn’t last longer

published

Purchased the Sherlock 80L wheelbarrow in August 2020 from Bunnings for light to medium use... mostly moving mulch, garden soil etc after only a few weeks of light use rust is visible and the handle grips are perishing and cracking. Absolute waste of money. Would give zero stars if I could.

Terrible wheel barrow

published

Brought two of these for gardening (spreading mulch & carting fire wood). Noticed within 4 months that the tray had cracked on both with light duties. The other issue is the wheel is to close to the tray so the slighted bit of mud and you can't push it. These were medium duty barrows. Returned them to bunnings for a full refund. Very dissapointing and hence on here looking for better ones

Purchased in April 2020 at Bunnings Warehouse for $168.00.

Not powder coated

published

Bought this Sherlock 80l barrow from Bunnings. It is very poor quality. Stored the barrow under cover. Used to move soil around the garden. After two weeks of use, paint is flaking off the tray to reveal rusted metal tray beneath. Barrow is very wobbly on its feet when loaded with soil. Don't waste your money

Purchased in April 2020 at Bunnings Warehouse for $115.00.

poor quality product

published

We bought this 80 L steel tray Wheelbarrow from Bunnings just over a year ago and the tray is starting to rust. It had a lable stating that the tray is powder coated. It doesn't look like powder coating. It is flaking off. The flakes are less than 1mm thick. A typical powder coating is" between 1.5 - 4mils" It has had light duty around our garden shifting compost and bark chips etc

Very poor

published

Bought this wheelbarrow from Bunnings a couple of years ago . The powder coating is peeling off in sheets and has faded really badly . Do yourself a favour buy a quality Australian made one , it will last for years . These are made to a very poor standard and just are not worth buying .

Cheap and nasty compared to other brands.

published

Rubber handles lasted only a year and then perished. No prime/undercoat just sprayed with black paint and rusted underneath blistering paint. The poly bucket is not durable but rather brittle.

Purchased in January 2017 at Bunnings Warehouse for $139.00.

Strong, Long Lasting

published

I have two Sherlock heavy duty poly tray wheelbarrows which carry cement, rocks, sand etc. One is 30 years old and the other about 20. Both are in excellent condition. The shock board is solid, wide wheels make moving easy and the wooden handles are far superior than the newer models made from steel.
I have placed spring washers under all nuts and none have come loose over the years.
If you want a wheelbarrow to last a lifetime, look at Kelso, Sherlock or Westmix. Their thick poly trays are superior to steel and each well worth the expense.

Purchased in January 1990.
