Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cook Good and sturdy
The Rubbermaid Commercial Products Brute 44 gal vented trash can was purchased to use as a rain barrel. The vinyl is thick and sturdy, and the lid is tight fitting. We had already purchased the kit with all the stuff to convert a container to a rain barrel. The kit required drilling 3 holes, the Brute 44 did not crack, dent, crease or folded during or after the drilling. We bought the Brute 44 in July, which took it through our Texas heat. We believe the container will hold up even if we have a rare hard winter. If we were to have a rare hard freeze this winter we will make sure it is empty of water â a common sense thing to do.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Oscartg Not Bad for Trash
This barrel is the best made. I don't own one myself, but I have used several on the job site. Due to the longevity and durability of these barrels, homeowners should strongly consider purchasing one of these over a standard steel or cheap plastic barrel. Unlike many of the residential-type barrels, these barrels will not puncture, tear or dent. One of the best features is that the lids continue to fit and lock into place even after substantial use and abuse. In addition, their more stable and slightly heavier construction makes it less likely that these barrels will blow into the street after being emptied. This will be the last barrel you ever have to buy for your home.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by WaterWise Makes an excellent rain barrel
In a pinch, this makes an excellent, durable and easy-to-maneuver rain barrel. Cost-effective, as well.

I bought one of these for our new work building, along with the Brute dolly so that it could roll around. Very good purchase. The plastic is durable and locks tightly onto the dolly. This will last for years.

Timely shipping and pre Irene electric outage was able to store 44 gallons of water for human use. Cheaper than bottled water.
