Certainly is heavy-duty

By Kathy from Cold Climate Gardening

from Upstate, NY

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Rugged

Cons

  • Heavy
  • Kind of smells

Best Uses

  • Bringing rocks to the rock pile

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

For the work we do around our rural home, this is a better choice than the colorful but less sturdy tub-trugs. We have broken the handles on several of them. It is heavier but more durable so a better value if it lasts longer, which it certainly seems like it will. It does give off a chemical smell straight out of the box, but I anticipate that will dissipate with time.

My garden partner

Pros

  • This is my new favorite tool for my garden work.

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Soaking plants prior to planting, carrying weeds

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

    This is my first heavy duty trug and I appreciate the large size and sturdiness of it. I use it daily, from carrying compost as I plant starter plants, to soaking them in root simulator. It accompanies mt as I pull weeds and I can't wait to use it for harvesting!

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

    Heavier than I expected, my bad... and handle is thick/large for extra small hands. I am considering making this in to a plant container as it gets very heavy when full of deadheaded material. I do think it is very well made and will last a very long time....getting my weightlifting in

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

    I've purchased a lot of garden trugs over the years that I store outside, because that's where I use them. Nearly all of them have cracked and/or fallen apart within a couple of years. While they're extremely useful for many tasks around the yard and garden, I got tired of having to replace them every couple of years. The lighter weight ones are not cheap.
    Love that this one is made from recycled rubber, even though it means it's heavier, it can be stored outside where it's used and isn't likely to fall apart due to extreme cold or heat.
    I have some rubber feed bowls that haven't deteriorated at all being stored outside.
    The only trug that hasn't cracked or split is the first one I purchased many years ago. It's a fairly small green trug that must have some rubber in it's construction. That original trug is still being used while all of the other non-rubber ones have cracked, crumbled, split or fallen apart within a couple of years each.
    I purchased this size and the larger recycled rubber trug, so I won't have to keep purchasing trugs over and over again.

    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.
