You know,thats one problem I have had many times.My dad fashioned on the bullnose of the wheelbarrow(hear this)a spring loaded roller so  when you ditched it it would roll up.he also fashioned a pair of slide over handles that fit over the wheelbarrow handles to give the handles more leverage in the 'up' position.

get some pipe that is big enough to splip over the ends and attach it to the handels. You can also buy longer hadels at alot of places like lowes, ace hardware, or menards.

I seem to have a problem that perhaps some of you have successfully dealt with . When I use my wheelbarrow in soft dirt and now and then gravel I seem to be "grounding" myself . It seems that when the going gets a bit tough I need to lean forward which in turn raises the handles and that lowers the nose . The little bar that sits just in front of the front wheel has a tendancy to hit the ground . This will stop me on a dime . If there was a way of grabbing the handles higher it would help .What I mean is that if there was something that would slip over the handles with something a few inches higher for me to grab on . Am I making my need clear ?
