Not a plastic one. They wobble back and forth when you fill them with concrete. Any steel 6 cu ft wheelbarrow will do.
Picked up a couple concrete buggys, a few years ago. We only use them if the job site is right. They are great though.

I have an older 6 cu. ft. model (brand long since worn off). I replaced the bent "C" channel front bracket with a galvanized flat brace (from electric utility line construction). It isn't as wide, is smoother and, with it being attached with two bolts on each side, seems to hold the axle in alignment better. A side benefit is that, since it is narrower and smooth, it doesn't hang up nearly as much as the original piece that came on it.

I have seen wheelbarrows modified with a flat bracket behind the wheel and have the axle supports cut off just a couple inches in front of the axle mounting brackets. They would just lay them over to dump (always topsoil or mulch - never concrete).
