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 a mixture of polyethylene and recycled plastic of industrial origin,, 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.

Very still but a good size. Not flexible like the trugs I've gotten in the past from Gardne'rs Supply.


Just the right size, and durable

We've been buying trugs for years and love their strength and versatility. One of our favorite gifts to new gardeners and to charity drives is to get a new trug and fill it with tools, kneeling pads, and more. Always a winner!


Love these trugs!

These trugs are so handy. I already had one (green), but it was always full of something when I needed it. So I knew I needed more. I purchased the black ones because they were cheaper. I thought there might be a quality issue because of the price, but they're just as good as the colored ones. I use mine all the time.

I really love these trugs. I use them as containers to haul weeds, water, vegetables and my small gardening tools. But more than anything they are my perfect holding container when moving plants. I spend a lot of time looking for native plant life to use in my landscape so I always tend to have something waiting to be planted in a new spot. They are at the top of my "must have" list for garden supplies!

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.
