This may have been around awhile, but this is first I've seen of it. It is sick and I want one.

why not just get a prowler?

I've bought a prowler several times and deleted it on checkout. I don't really have a place to push one.

Yep. But the low handles are worth the extra hell. Load it for what's hard on the low handles, and push it out that way, and then push it back on the "easy" handles. Makes for a great combo run.

I'm going to have to get a prowler. Too bad I missed the sale, but whatever. I'll get one soon, it's small enough to fit in my car.

I used to drag a home-made rig of compact car tires and chains, weighted with neighborhood kids, down the narrow street near my apartment in Japan. DIY and adapt and overcome, dude!

Not the same thing but, similar type of training,

On Sat me and another trainer hooked a rope up to my car and just started pulling it ~50metres, then sprinting back. Alternated between backwards and forward pulls. It was great. We done it until we both felt sick then stopped. Trying to sprint after pulling a car feels like you're running with someone elses legs.

It sure beats going for a jog. I would love a prowler. We're actually going to make a collection of stuff - home made sled, some old tractor tires, sledge hammers, sand bags, slosh pipe (!), whatver else we can think of, and try and make some kind of event out of it. Still in the early stages so it's not deffinite but we're both keen for it to happen.

Can you really do farmers' walks with this thing? It looks like the bars jutting out for loading the plates are in front of the lifting handles so wouldn't it tilt forward? Wouldn't you be dragging a bit during the farmer's walk?

I guess that's still fine mush like training with loaded wheelbarrows but not sure if it's considered farmer's walk still if it's not all off the ground.

Look at the middle picture on the top row. The plates are loaded inline with the handles. The handles are hard to see but they are not the bars sticking out. I assume the cross bar on the top is removable.
