Default Broken Axle!!!

Damn near broke an ankle too!



From the looks on the faces of the people at Home Depot, I am apparently the first person in history to ever break a plastic axle (interesting side note, I bought the wheel barrow with the steel tub precisely because I was going to be moving heavy things).

Luckily, and despit my worst predictions, the friendly person at the other end of the True Temper 800 line happily took my information and is sending me a new axle, free of charge.

That is all.

Did you break the short side or the long side?

Is Cromemoly available? Might have to get the new one frozen! Obviously that thing came with a factory spool?

Yeah I actually looked at the knobby tires last night, thinking I would just buy a cool new one, but they don't come with axles. The only way to buy a wheelbarrow axle (according to the 'Depot, Lowes and Ace) is to buy the whole wheel barrow.
