Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bmeisen Great product and outstanding Home Depot experience
I bought 10 sets (tote+lid) of these 18-gallon Rubbermaid totes on sale at Home Depot because of their outstanding durability in a hot attic (other cheaper brands had cracked their lids). When I got home, my wife found that the new lids fit two other Rubbermaid totes (10 gal and 18 gal) that we had filled long ago but were missing the tops. She snapped up 2 lids from the batch of ten totes that I had brought home and put them on the old totes to seal them.
I tried to buy some replacement lids online but found that you had to buy them in packs of 10 and the unit cost was more expensive than what I paid for a full 18-gallon tote at Home Depot. I used chat on the Home Depot website to ask for a price on just a lid and the chat person said that they didn't have a price and suggested that I visit my local Home Depot and ask the manager of the storage container department if he could sell me two lids.
I was shocked when the Home Depot storage department manager said that he couldn't sell them to me….but he gave me 2 lids and walked me out to the store exit. On the way, he explained that many people buy the totes but forget (or don't care about) the lids so they always have extra.
Kudos to Home Depot for such a customer-friendly response! Lowes is closer to where I live but Home Depot will now get more of my business!!!

I shipped a motorcycle engine (95 lbs.) in one of these. put a board in the bottom and drilled holes to bolt up the top to the bottom and took it to greyhound that way. made it safely cross country. If it's strong enough for that it can do any household storage job I could ask.

I am using this tote to make a DIY "Earthbox" type vegetable container. I made a couple two years ago from the same type of tote -- one had the same dimensions and one a little larger (too large, in fact, so the new one is replacing it). The plastic has borne up well -- no cracking, etc. It was nice to be able to get the same size and hence the same size lid, which cut down the labor in adapting the new container to the job at hand. I thought the cost was reasonable, too.

I don't know why all the local hardware stores have stopped carrying the 14 gallon size but I am so happy you still make them and I could purchase them direct.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ASA09 perfect trunk size
I bought these boxes to organize stuff in the trunk of my car. They are the perfect size. The Roughneck plastic has held up well previously for me for several years in car trunk use without getting brittle. The 18 gal one is too tall to fit in the trunk, and the 10 gal is too short to hold much. This one is perfect. I only wish I could find it in a store instead of having to order it online.

We bought these 16 years ago, and will celebrate 17 years the 27 of Feb. We purchased 20 or so, and only 3 this last year gave us problems with cracks. That is good for being used to carry dry products up to 50 lbs. Thank You!

These storage containers are exactly what their name implies.
They are sturdy, durable, and "Rough & Ready".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emmy123 Great for storage in flood prone basement!
We needed to store baby items under the stairs, but have history of water on basement floor. I was concerned that no bag would do the job of protecting the items and keeping them clean. Rubbermaid Roughneck totes to the rescue! The size of Totes we purchased even safely contains a car seat with base. I am satisfied and have peace of mind that expensive baby items will be safe and clean when needed for our next child.
