dirt, gravel, sod, wood, patio stones. I have many jobs for it in the future so I wanted to make the right choice now that will do anything I need it to around the home.

Possibly laying a concrete pad in the future. Also to mix concrete for post holes etc.

And is the 2nd part a trick question? One person.....

I like two wheeled kind. Not as tippy. Also metal handles are great.

I had this one for about 10 years, I did have to replace the handles since I left it outside all the time. (Noticed the picture didn't take, ID 10 T error I guess, anyway it was a common single wheel contractor wheelbarrow.)

If I had looked, I probably would have gone with the 2 wheel version.

Tip over the wheelbarrow once and you'll wish you sprung for the two wheel version

Your title made it seem if you were asking about 1 or 2 wheelbarrows. I now realize you were referring to the amount of wheels😬

Always two wheels, and keep them inflated. I've even seen some with a tricycle arrangement.

Get yourself a handyman one wheel type. Life is too short to be pushing some piece of **** that weighs 500 pounds when loaded.

Think trips. With a box of beer at each end.
