It had some things going for it, mainly the large contact area and low center of gravity. Again, no demand.

I like the idea of the ones with the wheels set back from the centre, so that you push down to bring the tub bottom/foot at the front up and balance on the wheel; you stop, handles go up, barrow stops, still upright; you drop it, same deal; you keel over backwards with a full load and a passelful of children directly in your path, barrow still stops upright, no squashed kiddies. You could even have gravity-deployed feet on the operator side of the wheel, so that if you push too hard, it stops, still upright.
I particularly like this idea for large mobile chicken coops, where you want to house your 75 to 100 birds and move them all by yourself without a tractor. I'd want two wheels, not one, but as long as its stable, all you'd need are long handles.
