    I have decent yellow ones they for 3.95 or 4.95 each, says heavy duty on the inside of them at the bottom, no. Idea what make they are. We used to get green buckets they were quite thick, but there was a flexi thing to them, nearly like a hard rubber, than plastic. Didn't burst, and easy cleaned out coz u could just squeeze them. Haven't seen them in a while though.

    Ox blues. I buy 5 a time from a local toolshop for £20 they last me a good 4 months a time of constant abuse from sand cement work. Still going strong. Ive got 8 left out of 10 I bought in September/October.

    Although a little battered no holes, or cracks.

    I have the Putz ones, they are solid and actually lighter than expected. I bought them mainly for dashing but the design of them isn't great for holding and dashing at the same time so not really used them much.

    The 13ltr putz buckets are the best I've used very hard wearing and decent handles that don't fall apart

    I will not buy them poxy things, look at them and they break and you can only look at them because the handle falls off straight away. Really trust that full of water upstairs :)

    I use the yellow 15ltr heavy duty builders buckets for water made by stadium which is also made by rhino. I've always used them and I think they are the best because they last forever! 26ltr flexi tub for washing the drill in and a 30ltr for knocking up in! :birra:

    Ah the old bucket dilemma , i usually wait till i have an order number from a builder , do some half decent ones in local merchants ;)
    like lighters though , when you work with other spreads you have to watch them or they will walk

    I've got to the stage in my plastering life when I hate buying anything at all for work now!

    Even been known to double skin buckets with holes in when I really feel like tramping it!!!
