that doesnt seem, right.

i didnt hire joe smo to represent me, i hired my representatives.

our government is so screwed.

you know they made a gun that has to be electronicly activated, in which the police would be able to turn them all off at the push of a button. i hear 2 states have made it illegal to sell any other type of firearm once this one is sold anywhere in the usa.

I just "drilled" a hole with a hot piece of tie wire. Put the hole in the handle where you can control it with your thumb when tipping the jug. Problem solved.

It has some plastic green thing and you twist and push the spout in. Only it doesn't work right. Thanks, I'll try your advice on the green thing. lol I bought a funnel, but it would be faster if I don't have to unscrew the whole thing.

I'm truly amazed at all the way people are using jerry rigged cans. Time is money and there is no way to fill hand held equipment faster then the No Spill cans. No Spill cans are like the Extreme string trimmer racks. If your not using them your incurring more labor expenses then you need to be. I also use tracking GPS and other tricks operate as efficiently as possible. Too many guys are living in the past.

They spilled in their commercial. how is it no spill, if the people who made it cant use it without spilling?

the no spill ones you can not pour as fast as mine. thus mine are faster and cost less

Like I said too many guys living in the past. Some guys ramble on a bit and seem like they are likely fans of guys like Alex Jones. No Spill is the number one can sold at commercial places now. Even Honda is a distributor of No Spill cans. Horizon Irrigation and other chains are on board as well.

One thing I have not mentioned is the UV resistance of these cans. At my shop the extra cans filled and ready for use are kept outside and get a little direct sun. After about five years not a single can has wear or UV damage. These cans are way more durable then the old standard pre CARB plastic cans you found at the mass merchandisers. The average spout like is probably about two years but it's really hard to wear out the cans.
