The wheelbarrow is designed to distribute the weight of its load between the wheel and the operator, so enabling the convenient carriage of heavier and bulkier loads than would be possible were the weight carried entirely by the operator. As such it is a second-class lever. Traditional Chinese wheelbarrows, however, had a central wheel supporting the whole load. The use of wheelbarrows is common in the construction industry and in gardening. The typical capacity is approximately 100 liters (3.53 cubic feet) of material.
