Comments about : Heavy Duty Recycled Rubber Trug, 8.7 Gallon:

I got tired of purchasing the regular trugs over and over again because they are stored outside where I use them for many tasks around the yard and garden.
Within one or two seasons they all crack or lose their handles and are useless.
I purchased this size and the larger one made of recycled rubber because they aren't likely to develop cracks and I can keep them outside where I use them for many tasks.
The only trug that has lasted is one of the first I purchased many years ago. It's a small, green trug that must have at least some rubber in it because it still hasn't cracked or fallen apart.
These recycled rubber trugs are heavier than the others, but they may well outlast me.
I'm so pleased to find them and not have to keep purchasing trugs over and over again.

    By lightweight heavy duty gardener

    • More Resistent To Crackin
    • Strong Material

    Cons

    • Heavy Adds A Lot Of Weigh

    Best Uses

      Comments about : Heavy Duty Recycled Rubber Trug, 8.7 Gallon:

      I am caught between liking this and not wanting to use it. It is heavy on its own and when I add debris it gets very heavy. For function I like the lighter kinds, for strength to last over time this one is better. But I find I don't like to use it. So now it will last even longer (LOL) I wouldn't buy it if you are not a tall and strong person who doesn't mind the extra weight.

      Comments about : Heavy Duty Recycled Rubber Trug, 8.7 Gallon:

      I bought one for myself several months ago. The recent trug I bought as a gift for a neighbor.
      I use to use wood fruit baskets will wire handle I got from grocery product: they only lasted one season and they are no longer available.
      The smaller rubber trug was the basic from and size of the old produce baskets.
      I used mine yesterday for gathering elephant ears leaves, which I cut as they turned yellow and for gathering thinning a bed of fern, which runs the width of my front porch. It reminds me of a pottery clay rubber tub used for reclaiming clay. Like the rubber tub used for clay, I anticipate it will last forever.

        Comments about : Heavy Duty Recycled Rubber Trug, 8.7 Gallon:

        I only bought the small trugs because I knew that if I had the larger ones & filled them up, I could not lift it. We use these to bring wood pieces to our firepit and it is perfect & very good & strong. I know they'll last a number of years. The handles are comfortable in your hands too.
