A longtime customer and staff favorite, this super-sturdy trug has thicker walls and even stronger handles than our regular Tubtrugs, and it stays flexible in temperatures as low as -76˚ F. Washable, bendable and nearly indestructible, it was designed for commercial fruit growers in Europe so you know it will stand up to heavy use. Handy for mixing soil, harvesting vegetables, carrying tools and supplies, collecting weeds and so much more.

Very strong and sturdy
from Pocono Mou tains Pa
Great for anytime you need a large tub
By Salvia psycho
from Fairburn, Georgia
Bought it to supplement another, taller and more flexible trug, believing it was the same manufacturer. It isn't, and is a good bit heavier, but will still do what I want it to - even heavier, it's still a great product.

The second time around
from Quincy MA
I bought my first tub trug years ago and have given them as gifts. I just bought two more for myself! One of my favorite garden tools. I use it to carry transplants in, for mixing manure tea, watering, weeding, soaking containers, and carrying wood. Ps....I still have my first one.
Would not buy this again.
By the time you put things in this, it's too heavy to lift. Might as well lug a tire.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Haines, AK
Very well constructed. Larger than I expected.

MUCH STURDIER THAN THE COLORFUL TRUGS. THIS IS A REAL WORKHORSE.
Larger capacity but shallower
By Kathy from Cold Climate Gardening
from Upstate, NY
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

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.
These will last
from Tulsa, OK
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.
