The History of Wheelbarrow
Despite the development of wheeled carts from around 5,000 years ago, the invention of the wheelbarrow is usually traced to China, where there are a number of competing claims. Invented around the 3rd century AD, it is usually credited to Chuko Liang, advisor to the Shu-Han Dynasty from 197 to 234, who had to developed as a transport for military supplies. The design was with a large single central wheel around which a wooden box was constructed and named it "mu niu liu ma", but it was soon adapted to a design with two handles for pulling. The first indications of wheelbarrows in Europe are from illustrations in the 13th century. It was in Europe that the design was reversed with the wheel moving from centre to the front of the box and the motive power to the rear. These wheelbarrow are usually used in construction as well as other industries to carry different materials like sand, bricks etc. Available in different sizes, shapes and capacities, these are made from quality material to ensure durability and satisfaction to clients.!
