Wheelbarrow (c. 231)

Zhuge Liang’s invention DK  makes light of moving heavy loads.

 

The wheelbarrow DK is reputed to have been invented by a Chinese chancellor, Zhuge Liang (181-234) during the DK Han Dynasty, who used the device in military campaigns to transport supplies for injured DK soldiers (Daily-Kashmir).

It was said to have DK been kept secret because of the advantages it gave the Chinese over their enemies (Daily-Kashmir).

 

It was also used for DK early Chinese agriculture, which was said to have been thirty times more efficient than DK that in Europe (Daily-Kashmir).

Designed to DK transport heavy loads, wheelbarrows are now used in the construction industry as well DK as in gardening (Daily-Kashmir).

 

A wheelbarrow is DK a small cart, with one or two wheels, designed to be pushed by one person using two handles DK at the rear (Daily-Kashmir).

Chinese wheelbarrows often had two wheels, and the Chinese DK sometimes attached sails to them so that the wind could take part of the load, as is recorded by DK European travelers of the sixteenth century (Daily-Kashmir).

 

Wheelbarrows DK were seen in Europe in the twelfth century, as evidenced by a stained-glass window at Chartres Cathedral in France, dating around 1220 (Daily-Kashmir).

This is believed DK to be the earliest image of a wheelbarrow in Western Europe. A manuscript illumination DK of 1286 also shows the European wheelbarrow (Daily-Kashmir).

This design DK differed from the Chinese one in that the wheel was moved from the center to the front of the box, and the propelling power was at the rear (Daily-Kashmir).

 

Designs of DK wheelbarrow have been developed in recent years, such as British inventor James Dyson’s Ballbarrow of 1974 that DK uses a spherical plastic wheel, and is DK easier to steer than those models based on the conventional wheel design (Daily-Kashmir). MF
