Huge Thanks to Barker Manufacturing - Blue Tote

I was having trouble finding the right size pneumatic wheels for my blueboy 42 gallon tote. I already purchased the rear wheels from Harbor Freight, but the stock axles are slightly too short for the caps to attach. I was working on a solution to that. I couldn't find anyone with the front 6in wheels in stock. I called Barker and told them about my broken front wheels and they said they will send me all four FREE (just pay shipping). Who does that anymore? Talk about standing behind your product. I will be recommending Barker for a long time. Thanks Barker!!!

Believe it or not, there are still companies out there that stand behind their products. Barker gets my thumbs-up for being one of them.

Thank you, Nunya for making their customer service efforts known. I think we owe it to business's like this to publicize the effort.

I have heard nothing but good things about Barker customer service. And I know their jacks and totes are made in the USA, not some far eastern country!

Barker has the best tongue jacks available in my opinion.

My Barker wheel cracked the first time I used it. Cheap plastic. I found some steel wheels on Amazon..

I recently tried to order a new cover for my Barker tongue jack. They shipped me a new replacement free of charge. I bought a Barker because I heard about the great service and got to experience it for myself. Needless to say they'll get my business whenever possible.

Barker rebuilt a slideout motor for me for free and shipped it to me in Washington.

A giant ATTABOY to them.

I've always been a Barker fan as well. Whatever the no name jack is on our Jay Flight now is less than desirable and will be gone soon and replaced with a Barker 3500.

Got my wheels yesterday and installed. So much better. Thanks again Barker. FYI - they sent me the kit. It comes with the two smaller wheels, two larger wheels, both new axles, spacers for the large wheels, and the caps for all four wheels.
