These are substantial, beefy handles. Best of all they come unvarnished. I put linseed oil on them and they look great. Both handles on my 20 year old wheelbarrow broke this year. I limped along with a donated handle from my neighbor until the second handle broke. The wedges are beautiful hard wood. Great job, will be back for other products soon.
These handles are GREAT! Way better than the big box store ones which these are replacing on the deep wheelbarrow. Wedges were smaller than the original on the smaller wheelbarrow but I made it work without much fuss. I finished them with 4 coats of WATCO Dark Walnut Danish oil plus three coats of Spar Urethane. All new stainless fasteners.
Have an older wheelbarrow that is at least 60 years old passed down from my father. “Someone” dropped a round bale on it and broke the original oak handles. The local hardware store handles made of “hardwood” were not as beefy as the originals. Found Beaver-Tooth online, purchased their handles and they are the exact size of the old handles. Thanks for making a product that has not been “cost reduced”.. I expect these handles to last at least another 60 years, with that old wheelbarrow being handed down to a my grandson.
These handles and wedges are of the highest quality! I was not expecting them to be finished so nicely. They came varnished, and the machine work looked very good. I searched all over for a pair of handles that were of the correct size for my husbands restoration of his Grandfathers 1950’s contractors grade wheelbarrow, and Beaver-Tooth Handle Company was the best choice!
I bought 2pr of wheel barrow handles thus 4 individual handles. 3 handles were the same lengths and the 4th was 1.5" shorter. I love the quality and heft of the handles and have installed the first pair -- a matching set. The unmatched set will go on my 2d wheelbarrow in the next several months. I give 5star rating to product quality and 3star rating to quality control. When I need products you supply, I will purchase from you because of your quality.
