Very difficult to assemble but found that supporting the front half of the frame on a small block of wood, then engage the top parts together I could then press down with my foot to engage the bottom halves of each frame to connect.. I find the centre of gravity too far forward and have to be very careful when putting bags of compost etc in so that it does not tip over backwards and in general although easy to use I find its lack of stability a big minus.
Many thanks for your feedback which we greatly appreciate- your comments have been passed onto the supplier for further review
I've used cheap wheelbarrows from the big DIY's / poor quality generally - but this County Compact Clipper is in a different league / easy to assemble / no maintenance - built to last!
This was extremely difficult to put together, nothing lined up. It was almost impossible to fix the body to the frame as there was no way to hold on to the screws to stop them twisting around as you tightened the nuts. There were a lot of very sharp edges on the frame which my husband had to file off. Would be good if it came ready assembled.

Build 5* Galvanised zonc-plated, two-piece frame assembled in 10 minutes thanks to clear photo instruction sheet and spanner (supplied). The polypropylene tray is a good thickness and has cross members and strengthening struts. Tray size : 26.5in wide x 35.5 in long, 90ltr capaciy. Features 5* Large 16in pneumatic tyre with inner tube for easy repair. Wheels feature ball bearings and 4-ply double block tyres. Also has a square ended tipping bar and skids to prevent legs from wear and tear. Performance 5* A joy to use over a bumpy course because of the chunky wheel. The long sloping tray was easy to empty and the flat tip bar gave stability and helped direct the load precisely. It had widely spaced, comfortable handles too. Value 4* Excellent handling - built to last. Highly recommended if you use a barrow alot and budget allows.
