Bright and Happy Bucket
1 Apr 2014
By Voucherman
, Hitchin
"Wow, fantastic product. Fantastic value for money as these buckets are quite tough and will last a long time. Usual features for a bucket, there is only one issue it has a hole at the top so tends to leak when turned over!
Performance is good with a low 0-60 time if you've got a strong right hand.
Very reliable does tend to stay where its put and not wander off too often buts its nice and bright so I can see when its trying to hide.
Is this review good enough to win me £100 in vouchers...."

Great buckets
19 Mar 2012
By MunchBunch
, Surrey
"A little more expensive than normal but much better than the cheaper ones.
The flat lip is good to scraping off trawels (though think they're designed for scooping).
No damage from knocking off cement off the inside."

oh, bucket
12 Feb 2012
By Fountain
, London
"Yes, its a bright yellow bucket and it holds stuff, but unlike most buckets it has a good handle fixing and a flat side to make getting stuff in from the ground easier.
Only down side is they seem to grow legs when friends try them, as I am now on my second set of 3.

"The flat edge to the rim of the bucket has been quite useful, otherwise it's a bucket, can't say much more can you?"

Solid Bucket

"Well, it's a plain, well made solid bucket - times 3 !!! The only down side, as with all Buckets is getting the handle to lay flat when required... A little push.."

Bucket Test
10 Jan 2013
By chippo
, london
"This bucket is the heaviest duty I have ever found.
This will work out much cheaper in the long run as others will crack and break under heavy working conditions.
The only problem I have occasionally found is knowing whether it is half full or half empty.
Excellent product.
Money well spent."

Beats the Normal Bucket
8 Nov 2008
By Builder39
, London
"Buckets may only be 99p but you use them once and fill up your skip.
These buckets are tough. You can knock dry cement out of them time after time.
Well worth the extra cost for building work.

Not the same anymore
30 May 2013
By JoMo91
, Northants
"Used to be fantastic and outlast any other buckets by miles, but the latest pack (stupidly expensive btw) has only lasted a couple of weeks under the same use.
Not impressed.
The search to find an equal quality comparison to the originals Screwfix stocked continues... :("

brittle
22 Sep 2012
By kurlo

"for the money I was hoping for these to last longer than a week.They're far too brittle and when tapped out on scaffold the lip just split.
theyre well made if you dont use them for carrying rubble or muck.

Not fit for purpose
19 Aug 2012
By Bettiboo
, Sheffield
"I purchased a set of three thinking they were the original yellow virtually indestructible builders bucket, in which case they would be excellent value. However I have to agree with bobthebuilder, these are barely better than the 99p black buckets. Merely tapping the base gently to remove mortar I knocked a two inch hole in the bottom. Clearly not the originals."
