    Seems like my operation wouldn't need them...

    All my clippings and other debris goes staight into the back of the truck or onto a tarp and on the trailer on in the back of the truck..

    but they do look cool...do you guys use them for maintenance?

    I'll get the barrel... just didn't feel like gettin' it yesterday. Won't be doing routine cutting for another month or so.

    around here 50 gal rubbermaids are like 20 bucks cheaper than the green barrels which are sixty gallons, have a wider opening, and can take the abuse much better(except for the bottoms wearing out). I heard about them on here and they are hard to find around here,but I love them and they are worth it IMO

    NJ guys FYI, got a handout from pridelandscape supply @ the show on Wednesday. They are having an openhouse on March 6th (dbl check date) and what caught my attention wasthe 60 gallon barrels for 39.99. I thought that was cheap. Lesco is selling them for 60 and I believe home cheapo is selling them for around 55 (if/when they actually carry them). BTW, they are located in south amboy. They have a few other show specials that are pretty enticing. I'm not sure if its a scam where its "while supplies last" or something like that.

    lol, I thought I was the only one, I was going to ask WTF are 'Green Barrels'?
    Only thing I can think of are those blue ones you cut in half to put kegs in.
