Plant a Tree/ Mechanical Descriptions The scale above is clearly not the actual size of the wheelbarrow you will be using to haul things like gravel, stone, pine straw, dirt, firewood, mulch, and more. Before you shovel in the material you are transferring, point the empty wheelbarrow in the direction you will be going. Add the load closer to the wheel, not the handle, so it’ll be easier to lift and move around. As you move the wheelbarrow to the desired location, keep your arms and back straight, and lift with your legs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
