[00:00:10] Okay we’re going to show you all the tools you need for a Brentwood wheelbarrow, to build your Brentwood wheelbarrow. First thing you’re going to need are safety glasses. Safety is very important. You’re going to need basic pliers. A household hammer, regular screwdriver, Half-inch open-end boxed end wrench, half-inch ratchet.

[00:00:39] And if you have an impact driver or cordless screwdriver with a half-inch ratchet, that’s all you’ll need to complete your Brentwood wheelbarrow. We’re going to assemble our Brentwood six cube wheelbarrow. This is our tub.

[00:00:52] The first thing we’re going to do is pull out four flathead screws. Put those in the four slots here in the bottom. Now we have two shorter ones. They go in the front. At this point, you want to get your hammer. We’re going to smash these in till they’re flat.

[00:01:33] Flip your tub upside down. We’re going to put on our handles.

[00:01:43] When you put your handles on, you want to make sure Brentwood is upside down, and you use the two slots closest to the Brentwood name.

[00:01:53] Once you have two handles on, and remember the name will be upside-down, take your leg braces and put them on. The two holes go to the back of the wheelbarrow. Just set them on, and hand tighten the nut.

[00:02:19] Left and right, no different.

[00:02:27] You don’t have to worry about adjusting them or lining them up right now, we’re just putting them on so they’re there. Next, we’re going to put on the front brace.

[00:02:51] We have a left and a right. It’s marked on here. You’ll see there’s an L on the brace and an L on the pan so that, you know, you have the same. The right on the right, and the left on the left.

[00:03:07] Next, we’ll put on our Axle brackets. There is no left and right.

[00:03:14] We’re going to attach our leg brace to that, so that the bolt goes through the leg brace, through the handle. You put the high end of the axle bracket to the outside. The high end has a hole in it where we put a power pin later. Two bolts. All this, we’re just putting on hand tight.

[00:03:56] We put on our nose bracket. The bolt goes through the slot.

[00:04:12] A Good place to keep your nuts is here in the tub so they’re handy. We’re going to slide the axle through the axle bracket, through the hub, and through the other side. When it gets to the other side, you don’t want to force it through. You have to leverage it up and down, so that it pulls through. I’m just going to size that up, I don’t really care where it is right now, just so it’s in there.

[00:04:51] You’re going to find two washers in your kit. These are for the double-wheeled wheelbarrows. Don’t put these on the singles.

[00:04:58] Last piece we’re going to put on is the rear brace. We want to make sure the curved end is pointed up. It goes on the inside of the leg of the braces here in the back. We’re going to take our nuts from the back through the two slots. Four of these.

[00:06:02] At this point, all the bolts are in, all the nuts are on. Everything’s in but the cotter pin. So now we can go about tightening everything up. We have a half-inch ratchet.

[00:06:13] Again, we already had tightened everything. Now go around, make them a little more snug. Do this on all of our bolts.

[00:06:23] If you have an impact driver or a cordless screwdriver, this makes the job a lot easier and faster.

[00:06:34] Now we’re going to focus on centering the wheel with the axle brackets and the axle. We have a lot of play in here right now. So we’re going to center that up. Your axle brackets will be tight against the hub of the rim. We’ll move that back and forth and then will tighten up the nuts so that it’s centered.

[00:06:59] It’s a pretty easy process, we’re just going to use our thumbs. As you can see, we’re just going to move this back and forth, eyeballing it up so that it’s centered. And then tighten your nuts.

[00:07:17] We’re now going to put our cotter pins in that holds our axle in place. Very simple, slide it through the hole, then we’re going to bend it over. If you’ve tightened all the bolts, you want to turn your wheelbarrow over and check your heads of your bolts in here to make sure they’re flat, if they’re not flat you want to tighten them up a little bit. This enables the inside of the pan to be shovel friendly.

[00:07:53] The last thing we’re going to do is put our handle covers on. Just slide them on the top. Now your Brentwood wheelbarrow is complete.
