    I ordered four of these the last time and received them pretty timely, though the shipping did not get combined. I’ve used them twice so far and they work pretty well. The handles on them are sturdy enough that it can be picked up with 10 gallons in them.

    Word of warning, I ordered two of these the last time they were available, never received them, and I am still waiting for the seller to resolve this.

    Buyer beware!
