Garden carts available today are expensive, take up a lot of space in your garage, and lack features to hold tools like rakes and shovels. But most gardeners already have a wheelbarrow in their garage or shed! The Little Burro adds garden-cart functionality to a handy tool you probably already own. It fits over your wheelbarrow to help you carry more tools and materials in one trip.
The Little Burro securely holds all of your gardening tools, with protected storage for your personal items. And it’s low-profile design stores easily in your garage. Because The Little Burro is so easy to attach and remove, your wheelbarrow becomes a more versatile, helpful tool.
The Little Burro is designed to fit securely over a wide range of existing wheelbarrows, without the need for extra parts or latches. Instead, it features a series of ribs on the underside that fit firmly against the inside geometry of the smallest wheelbarrows, and wrap over to fit the outside geometry of the largest wheelbarrows. The user simply places The Little Burro over their wheelbarrow and aligns the back rim using a convenient window guide cut into the rear-most compartment.
The tool hooks on The Little Burro can securely hold long-handled tools with a wide range of handle diameters, without moving parts. The tool hooks instead feature a wedge-shaped channel with a series of grippy elastomeric ribs. The user presses the tool handle into the channel, wedging it down, and the ribs compress and grip the handle. It’s easy and intuitive to use, and works well with a wide variety of long handled tools.
The Little Burro won the Retailer’s Choice Award at the National Hardware Show when it was introduced in 2014. It was also awarded Bronze in the 2014 International Design Awards. The Little Burro is available today at www.littleburros.com and select Lawn & Garden retailers.
