Like it, with reservations
from new england
They work wonderful for the first few years. I own six. But I'm not getting any more of them. Like some of the reviewers, I have experienced broken handles. And now, my 10-year-old one has disintegrated with cracks....instantly. I guess I made the mistake of thinking that high price means high quality, especially from Gardener's Supply. I don't expect to get a replacement, but, when I wrote to customer service, I got a lecture on how plastic doesn't last forever. (I own other plastic things that woud say otherwise.) The tubtrugs that do the best (so far) seem to be the ones that I use only as non--gardening receptacles. So, I would not recommend these for gardening purposes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to review our Tubtrugs. We are sorry to hear that they are not holding up to your expectations. The manufacture warrants them against defects for one year from the date of purchase. We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all our products, but at this point in time we feel that 10 years is a reasonable lifetime of this product. We have, however, forwarded your comments to our buyers and Quality Assurance Team to investigate further. We are constantly working to improve the items we carry, and we appreciate your feedback.
Good, practical product

This is great for carrying all our hand tools or collecting pulled weeds for transport back to the compost.
from Anita, Iowa
I got this for myself for Christmas. I just got a garden shed, and it's already out there ready when spring gets here. I plan to use it to carry all kinds of things around the yard with me.
Bought as a gift
from E. Montpelier VT
My mom specifically requested a Tubtrug for Christmas. I obliged, and the tub was in my living room for the duration of my holiday wrapping activities...and was SO USEFUL! Oh my goodness, I almost didn't want to give it to my mom, it was such a great way to store all my wrapping paraphernalia , and I can only imagine how nice it would be for weeding and gardening. So this was a real win, and I'll be ordering one for myself!
This product is a workhorse.

"Trugs" do it all. They transport hand tools and supplies to and from the garden, they hold small loads of pruning debris and flower cuttings. I've used themto carry just about everything - they're lightweight and easily cleanable. Can't imagine gardening without them.

Handles are more durable than a Tubtrug I purchased from a local big box store. Tubtrug colander fits perfectly inside to wash away garden dirt & debris.
All Purpose Trug
from Milford, Michigan
Once you have had a trug you will wonder how you managed without them! Indeed, trugs have become more and more available at various stores but I do find that the Gardeners Supply trugs are of superior quality. The 11 gallon trug is especially useful for gardening purposes.
A farm staple for sure!
These things are invaluable. from hauling to impromptu watering aides!!! Just don't let them stay in freezing weather and expect them not to brittle break....our bad.
My wife has several and can't have too many
from Central PA
These trugs are endlessly useful in the garden, sturdy, lightweight, great for hauling all manner of materials around the garden
