Swiveling inline wheel wheelbarrow.
Never try to tell me it can't be done
When I have to paint I use http://kbs.justoldtrucks.com/
I would like to see that in action with a fluid load such as wet concrete. The inability to set it down on its regular 3 points when a COG shift occurs could be messy.
The fact that during a tipping moment the rear is held high and unable to be lowered instantly, plus the fact that the 3 points of contact, (wheels and one leg only), mean the COG could very easily be located outside the tripod. IMHO not suited for its intended use of removing the rear slung heavy load from the users arms.
A well designed, quality wheelbarrow, has a steep base, deep front with a high lip that prevent overflow when lifted. The wheel axle needs to be located well behind the front lip so that raising the handles a small amount shifts the majority of the weight forward and the wheel carries the load. The rear lip should be lower than the front, (when on its legs), so that during transport the load is carried in a level container.
