Larger capacity but shallower

By Kathy from Cold Climate Gardening

from Upstate, NY

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Can take abuse
  • Durable

Cons

  • Harder to grab both handles with one hand
  • Heavier than the colorful tub trugs
  • Kind of smells

Best Uses

  • Carrying wood chip mulch from the wheelbarrow
  • Hauling rocks to the rock pile

Comments about : Heavy Duty Recycled Rubber Trug, 11.8 Gallon:

I was a little disappointed to discover that this heavy-duty tub trug is shallower and wider than the smaller capacity one. I expected it to be shaped more like the 11 gallon colorful one. Instead it's proportioned more like the 4 gallon shallow colorful one. The extra width makes it harder to grab both handles with one hand. I would have only ordered one of these and two of the smaller heavy duty if I had realized. This one will be used more by my grown sons than by me. It's just too big for me--a short, out-of-shape, middle-aged woman.

Not as happy as expected

Comments about : Heavy Duty Recycled Rubber Trug, 11.8 Gallon:

I have another black trug I bought years ago and was expecting this to be the same. I was surprised it is so heavy - and that's without anything in it.

Comments about : Heavy Duty Recycled Rubber Trug, 11.8 Gallon:

I got tired of purchasing the thinner and lighter trugs over and over again because I leave them outside because I use them outside for so many garden tasks. Within one or two seasons they all crack and become useless. The only exception is one of the first ones I ever purchased, which is a small green trug that has been around for many years now.

I purchased this size and the medium size that are recycled rubber and aren't likely to crack from heat or cold and will probably outlast me. This is my first year with backyard chickens, so I'm also cleaning the coop every couple of days and have been using one of the lighterweight shallow trugs to hold the stuff I dump into the compost bins, but that trug is cracked on the side and has lost one of it's handles.

The lighter weight ones are not cheap so I got tired of buying them over and over again.
I have some rubber feed bowls that I use for the chickens and they haven't been damaged at all by heat or cold. I also have some shallow rubber trugs with handles that I can use for gathering food from the garden.

Both of my recycled rubber trugs were delivered today and I'm very happy that they are likely to last for years.
