Use at horse events for water.
Diann M on Aug 22, 2018
I am hoping there are as tough as I need. They look like the ones I used to be able to get. Good (tough!) ones are not easy to find these days.
Jeff B on Jul 5, 2018
Sturdy buckets in bright colors that last a long, long time. The price is unbeatable, even with the oversize shipping fee added.

Great for use in the trailer on the go! Stores well in the back compartment of the slant.

I needed some more muck buckets.
Teresa J on Jul 24, 2015
I love these buckets. I am only 5 feet tall and older. I have to use more of them but they are way easier to handle than the big ones. I have been using them for several years and have just broken 2 out of 24. Really rugged. Also, great for kids.

I needed a heavier tub to clean stalls with and the price was comparable to anywhere I would have to drive to.

These are the only buckets that will last in a stall wth horses that like to put their feet in water.

A shopper on Oct 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The item you are looking over is the bucket, If your asking about the muck bucket cart. Then item below has the option to use a 40 or 70 quart bucket as per noted. However we only carry a 40 quart bucket.

Can we get this muck bucket in teal blue??
Claudine S on Jun 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately the blue color, when it comes back in to stock, will be more of a medium blue.
Will the manure rack fit inside? I want to use for the rack in my trailer.
sandy c on May 6, 2019
Who is the maker how much does it hold and what’s the price of shipping and what’s the price when you buy five or more?
Jackie Y on May 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Manufacturer is Fortex/Fortiflex. It holds 40 quarts/10 gallons. For number crunching, because there are several factors, please call our Customer Care team for assistance. We are available 8AM-8PM weekdays, Eastern time at 888-809-0751, or you are welcome to email using the Customer Service link at the bottom of our web pages.
Are these safe for horse to drink from (if new & never used for manure)? Wondering if the plastic on these is approved for water/feed contact?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, Fortiflex muck buckets are safe for food and water. And even if they had been used for stall cleaning, they are easy to clean and disinfect, and you could still use them for food and water.
Fortiflex makes so many styles of buckets and tubs - all food and water safe - and in great colors.
Muck buckets are used for soaking wounds, raising baby chicks, beer and pop coolers, etc. They’re great for working in the yard and make good recycling containers.

The newest purpose that I’ve seen them used for is Cardi-drumming Classes. They hold the ball just perfectly, and they don’t cave in or wear out
I hope that answers your question. And did I mention that you can actually use them for cleaning stalls? Yep. And you can leave the metal pitchfork right in the tub; it won’t poke through.
is the plastic on these buckets protected from UV damage?
Dawn J on Oct 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately I don’t know. I keep mine in the barn away from sunlight. It has stood up to dragging etc. Very well and the color is still true. Hope this helps.
How close would the 40 qt. be to the size of a bushel basket?
Dennis G on Aug 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A bushel is approximately 37 quarts, so pretty close.
Weird question, new to taking care of horses. I see that the girls around the barn use the muck buckets in the paddocks but I don't understand why you wouldn't just put the manure right into the wheelbarrow (a few feet away). Seems like more work to have to dump the bucket into the wheelbarrow to cart it away. I see the use for the bucket on a trailer or at a show but not at the barn. What am I missing (honest question, not being obnoxious)?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Buckets are much more maneuverable. Pushing a wheelbarrow in and out of a stall is difficult, particularly so if there is a horse in the stall at the time. Wheelbarrows also tend to get quite heavy even when partially full, whereas a muck bucket can be handled by children even, particularly the smaller buckets. Dragging a Mc bucket is a one hand affair, leaving the other hand free to hold the fork. With a wheelbarrow, the fork must be balanced across the barrow, and easily falls to the ground.
How many gallons is this bucket? - Thanks
Maggie C on Feb 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 4 quarts = 1 gal. Therefore, a 40 qt bucket should hold 10 gallons. I bought this particular bucket as a gift for a gardener plus one for me. Both buckets are still in excellent condition. My recipient loves hers. They never see manure, but are used for all things outdoors, large and small.
