Best High-End
Best Mid-Range
Best Inexpensive

If you have heavy loads of firewood, dirt, gravel, or green waste to haul and a standard wheelbarrow proves too slow, tiring, and cumbersome, then getting your hands on one of these power models will be a good idea. They employ dumping mechanisms to take the strain of difficult yard work off your back, and run on common rechargeable batteries or on beefy gas-powered engines.

Editor's Notes

May 20, 2019:

They save so much effort (and maybe pain) that, once you've tried a power-assisted wheelbarrow, you might never want to go back to a manual one. In this update, we removed an item due to concerns about its availability and were pleased to add the Overland Electric Powered Cart. It features extra-long battery life that will keep you working longer than some other battery-powered models. We also gave top spots to our two gas-powered selections, the Yardmax YD4103 and the Yardmax YD8103 because of their powerful engines and large hauling capacities, which help you do more work in less time.
