Thumbs down Hole in Wheelbarrow Tub

I have no idea where this query should go, so this forum sounds like a good place!

I have a poly wheelbarrow tub that has cracks through the material near at the attachment carriage bolts. I was going to use JB-Weld to fill/repair the holes but noted on their site that it will not adhere to polyethylene.

Any suggestions on how to fill/repair these cracks since I am unable to find a replacement tub and cannot really afford a new wheelbarrow at this time.

Bondo or some such filler? How does it work with poly?

Thanks for any help that you can provide.

Try some epoxy glue. Or better but more expensive is the repair stuff for car bumpers. Ask the auto parts guy.

They make plastic weld. Because cracks are located at stress points, it is doubtful repair would be very successful.

Fiberglass mesh smeared with two part epoxy will do the job.
Scuff up the area around the repair with sand paper first.
