Check JD/Lesco or local mower shops

Just a quick question? Why not buy the $14 ones from Wally World with wheels and a lid, cuz they've both already blew out of the truck and got beat to hell. I just can't see the need to spend $50 on a barrel that will get torn up.

I agree and disagree with your statement. I have 3 of the green barrels and have had them for over 4 years now and are showing very little wear. If you are always dragging them along the concrete, etc... yeah they will get torn up quicker. They have been nothing but another tool thats makes my job easier. On the other hand, they are expensive and can be bulky. I paid like 60 bucks or so for them which is expensive. You also cant load them to the brim, they get very very heavy. So there are good and bad

You get what you pay for. Home Depot carries them. I wish Lowes did as i work there part time and get a 10% discount.

Carl's Equipment in Patchogue and St James carries them.
You can order them online here Carry Barrel™ (http://tank-depot.com/productdetails.aspx?part=CBR60XAO-5)
Or you can call the manufacturer, Chem-Tainer, at 800-ASK-CHEM to direct you to a distributor.

Yes I have trouble finding these locally but got 4 that I got at homedepot and never saw them there since. And I too disagree Austin-these are the best barrel money can buy You can literally run one over with a truck and it will be ok. I completely ran one over with my stander X while pushing it backed off and the dents popped right out.
