48 in. x 48 in. x 16 in. Dock System Float Drum is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The float came damaged, punctured by a fork lift tine.... The float came damaged, punctured by a fork lift tine. When I called to get a replacement, HD said it'd take weeks. That's unacceptable, since I had a crew/dumpster on site. a marine supply store had it. I'll buy everything for my project there. HD is too big to care about the little guy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from features I required at a reasonable price The floats are not fully in use at this writing as there is still ice on the lake. they are sturdy and attached exactly as described, to the dock. They are well designed and look like overkill for my application (I should never have to replace them). The price was fair and the shipping was the deciding factor. A great value.
