Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ContainerQueen Great for container gardening!
I've brought several of these five gallon buckets for my container garden. I've grown tomatoes, eggplant and peppers in them with great success. Just drill a few holes in the bottom and you're good to go!

Have used same 8 buckets for 3 years now. Drill some 1/4 inch holes just above base for drainage and then add some stones to bottom to avoid soil blockage. Now fill up with potting mix and some vegatable fertilizer grains and you are ready for seeds or starter plants. Three bamboo sticks and twine make a nice trellis for climbing pea plants. Have had great tomatoes each year. Trying out the City Pickers planters in addition this year. Lots of fun gardening on the deck in Seabrook NH 2013 especially with this nice weather April 27 and 28!!!!!

How can you go wrong with a good bucket? You can do so much with it. It holds water and can wash your brushes after a good painting session. Then you can turn it over and sit on it when your tired. Or, you can play it like an instrument if you're so inclined. Good bucket for the money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chuckzwood Excellent Choice for Buckets with Lids
Excellent buckets for the price! I needed buckets with lids in a hurry, and decided to try these. They are much cheaper than those I have previously purchased elsewhere, so I was skeptical....but, they are quite nice for the price! I have been using them as water buckets outdoors for a couple winter months in PA (we have been below zero more than a few times), hammering out the ice, and they have, so far, put up with the abuse. The material feels slightly rubbery, which helps prevent cracking.
I highly recommend both these buckets and their matching lids -- great value!!!

A bucket is a bucket. The HD 5-gallon bucket works great. I use it to mix small batches of concrete and mortar. Sometimes I have to include a measureded amount of sand in the mix. Unfortunately, the HD bucket doesn't have measurements on the side with a translucent vertical strip to indicate the amount of material in the bucket. It would be helpful if the bucket had a translucent vertical strip and measurements of gallons, liters and cubic feet. A 5-gallon bucket won't hold a full cubic foot but it will hold over a half cubic foot (0.5 CF = 3.74 gallons)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DMLyons I own three of them and will probably buy more!
I bought my first two of these buckets for grout work and for carrying tools into and out of work areas. They are hearty buckets--heavy, strong, and large. Just what I need for a big job. We ended up using the one for grout work as a daily use bucket around the house. So, when my son was headed off to college and needed a bucket for cleaning around the dorm room, I naturally bought another. It's not wide enough to fit the sponge mop into without it being paritially closed, but it's a durable bucket for little more than I would pay for a cheapie that would last him a year. These last well, and they are definitely a good deal for the durability.

There are buckets and there are 5 gal. Homer buckets. I don't know who Homer is, but I'd like to thank him for this bucket. This bucket changed my life.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WilsonConstructionSD Great product
There isn't a whole lot to say about a bucket, except that these are inexpensive and sturdy, and last a while even with heavy use. I have anywhere from 5 to 30 at any given time on multiple jobsites, used for everything from airless spray painting to work surfaces to cleanup to a standing stool to holding bricks and rocks to mixing mortar and cement... And so much more. Other brands tend to shatter much more easily, and this one is most vulnerable on the bottom, but even with a crack you can still fix it with duct tape and hold anything except liquids.
Buy one, or 30. You'll end up using them all.
