Original Black Trug Tubs

Item Number: FK
Please note that the manufacturer is in the process of updating all of their molds and machinery. To date, they have only completed these changes for the medium size which has a slightly different appearance but is the same great quality!


Flexible, versatile carriers for the garden with dozens of uses around the home.

Available in 3 sizes:

SMALL-11" high x 14" rim diameter, 25 liters, 6.6 gallons capacity
MEDIUM-13" high x 17" rim diameter, 40 liters, 10.5 gallons capacity
LARGE-12" high x 21" rim diameter, 55 liters, 14.5 gallons capacity

They're black and tough, but light and easy to carry. Made from 100% recycled polyethylene, they're as hardwearing as a car tire. Unaffected by freezing cold or boiling water.

Use Trug-Tubs for weeding and pruning-they stand upright reliably. Then grab both handles with one hand for easy carrying. Use them for carrying tools and mixing potting soils. They'll even carry liquids without splashing and you can pour from them easily. Use them for carrying firewood and as party ice buckets. Because they're so flexible, they won't dent or rust and are easy to keep clean. Made in Spain for harvesting fruit in orchards.

I needed a hard-working trug, not just a cute garden tote. This one is great. Should last for years!


Black vs colored trugs

Original black trugs are very durable, I've had one for at least ten years. Unfortunately. The colored ones crack within a year. I have two mediums, but just got a large and I'm finding it useful for retreating old potting soil. Original black is the way to go, medium or large.


Handles make tub NOT easy to carry

I thought I was buying a Tubtrug, the tub that is popularly sold on other sites. Kinsman cutely calls their product a "Trug Tub" and it is not the same brand. It is very different--heavier weight, less flexible, with uncomfortable handles that were recently redesigned so they're not even as pictured. They are unpleasant to grip even when the tub is empty--because of the stiffness of the tub, if you're carrying it with one hand you have to exert pressure to keep it closed. The discomfort increases once you are carrying anything of weight. Also, the manufacturer's new handle mold leaves little rough knobs on the plastic which chafe. Buyer beware. If you're looking for a Tubtrug this isn't it.


Very Sturdy

These are much sturdier than the colored plastic tubs that I had used in the past. Not as pretty, but definately much stronger as apparently these are used for commercial fruit picking in Europe.


BEST TRUG EVER!

Was delighted to see that these work horses were still available. I have two, that I have had for more than 20 years now. I don't abuse them, but, I expect them to work as hard as I do, and they certainly have! And just to say, not replacing them, just adding to the group, they are an invaluable asset to my gardening business. The handles are sturdy and do not hurt your hands when you are carrying them. Skip the pretty colored ones, get the tried and true if you are really looking to get the job done. Quick wash and they are good to go.


What a find!

I read about these in some article about gifts for gardeners. They are perfect for me. I keep them on the back of the golf cart at our farm and use the small ones and one large one for a variety of weeding and hauling chores.

I love that I have found these black trugs again. I have had mine for many years, and just brought them with me on a long distance move. Then I lost one accidentally to a garbage truck. So happy to have ordered another much like my original. Black is my favorite--looks great anywhere in the garden and is such a versatile tool!
