FAQ

What is the great thing about FREND?

FREND is a foldable wheelbarrow. But at the same time FREND does not compromise when it comes to durability and volume. When folded, FREND can easily be stored away by hanging it at the wall. This way you can use your space for other hobbies.

What is the volume that fits into FREND?

Into your FREND you can load up to 90 liters. And a bit more when you mount it up a bit.

How much does FREND itself weigh?
FREND itself will finally weigh around 12kg. This was our target since we started this. Durable but too heavy so that it can be used and stored by everyone. This equals a six-pack of 2 liter bottles.
What is the maximum load I can fill into FREND?
Up to 60kg are easily possible. This is a lot already,

No. We designed this especially to be an easy helper for active people. Equally robust and light. That was always our target.
How big is the wheel?
The wheel measures 39cm in diameter. This is at the very top referring size for wheelbarrows. It is maintenance free because of the full rubber material.
Is FREND waterproof?
Nein, leider nicht. Der Faltmechanichmus lasst keine absolute Dichtheit zu.

How long does it take to unfold FREND for use?
Just a moment. Maybe 3 seconds.

Setting up a good online shop also costs money, so we decided to do this only once we got confirmed this works well and that you like it.
