The Ballbarrow was a type of wheelbarrow designed by James Dyson and released in 1974 in the UK. It featured a moulded plastic hopper on a steel frame and a spherical plastic wheel. The original design featured a galvanised steel hopper. Later, the design was changed to a plastic hopper, with an optional clip-on height-extension piece.
The Ballbarrow won the Building Design Innovation Award in 1977. Dyson continued with the ball-wheel concept in his design for the Trolleyball boat launcher in 1978, and the DC15 vacuum cleaner in 2005.
