This 55 gallon storage container is perfect for those bulky items, such as off-season clothing or bedding (see picture). A queen size bedspread hardly puts a dent in the storage capacity of this container as you can see it the picture! The end handle space is nice and deep so you can get a good grip on the container to lift or move it (see picture). The lid securely locks in place, but you can also thread rope through six openings in the lid of the container which are aligned with the base of the container (see picture). This is a great feature to have! It is 19 inches deep and 18 inches wide so this will fit many larger size items (see pictures). I was very impressed with the design and features of this storage container so I highly recommend it!

Over the years my wife and I have been very happy with HDX products and this 55-gallon tough storage tote is no exception. Both the tub and lid appear to be exceptionally well-built and heavy duty. The huge size of this tote allowed us to eliminate several cardboard boxes full of assorted items which are now centralized and easily accessible in this large tote. See attached photographs. Well-done HDX!

The 55 Gallon Tough Tote sold by The Home Depot is very spacious and durable. The black color is a good choice for hiding marks. I like that the lid fits snugly and snaps into place when it locks. I personally use this tote for holiday lights and decorations because of its large storage capabilities. I would highly recommend this product to anyone in need of a large light weight storage bin.

BIG TOTE! This is one of the largest storage totes I have seen and for good reason. I needed a replacement for my Rubbermaid tote which was about the same size, maybe a bit smaller, but it cracked along the side sitting in my closet for off season clothing. I received this one yesterday, it is made of a heavy gage recycled polypropylene plastic and is approximately 45X21X19 BIG. I stored several winter blankets, bedspreads and pillows in this large tote. If you use Space Saver bags you can get in a lot more and protect them. I would recommend this tote, you need to ensure you have a space for them. One last thought, you can also stack them.

Storage tote reviews tend to get lumped together. This review is for the HDX 55 gallon "Tough Storage Tote" in black with a red lid. This is a large tote - Exterior dimensions (about) 43" long by 21" wide by 19.5" high. Interior dimensions (about) 39" long x 14.75" wide x 17.25" high. This didn't register with me until I took delivery (it was shipped to my house, I didn't pick it up in the store). It's larger than any other tote we have in our basement. I wanted the large tote not for its weight capacity (rated at 200 pounds), but for its volume. We have bedding (mostly comforters) that require a lot of volume to store. The HDX tote holds two queen-sized comforters without a problem (of course this depends upon the specific bedding - some comforters are fluffier than others). That solves the problem I needed solved, so I've gotta give the tote high marks. We didn't try to overstuff the tote; when we got just a bit below the level of the top of the container we stopped adding bedding. YMMV - If you overstuff the tote you may find that the lid bulges up in the middle. Quality is acceptable for a storage tote - there are obvious marks from the molding process in the plastic (see photo below). I've had no undue issues in removing/replacing the lid; totes with removable lids are always a bit of a chore for me. I'm always pulling up on the wrong spot; I don't consider it a design view, it's more a fault in my technique. The tote offers open ports for locks or bungee cords, etc., and there are channels (see photo below) for running cords or ropes to tie down the tote. Not features I'm likely to use, but YMMV. HTH.

Great for moving or storage!
Excellent quality and value. For moving or storage these containers are up to the challenge. Stackable and strong! Can handle books or any other heavy items!

These are actually better than good but not 5 star. They are pretty tough, big but not the strongest I've seen. But for the price best out there. Stack well, keep water, mice etc out. I have over 15, different sizes in use. They stack well.

Get yours asap
I bought 3 of them, they are very good. So I ordered 4 more. I'm using them to store items that I don't use daily. My place doesn't look so messy. They are stackable so you can use a small space to store a lot. I recommend this product

Loyalty Strained
I use these totes for various things around my house. I get the different sizes to be mindful of how much weight I'm putting into them. I purchased a 17 gallon around Christmas had put zero items in it and this is the results of me laying it down outside of the closet it was being stored in. I don't know if something's happened with this company but it seems like a materials are starting to get cheaper therefore not so "tough" anymore.

    Great tub, lousy lid
    I bought 3 of these containers to store our moving blankets. After filling two of the containers, I attempted to stack one container on top of another. Big mistake. The lid cracked just off center, in the middle. I don't have more than 50 pounds of total weight in either container, so that can't possibly be the reason a "tough" lid breaks so easily. The tub seems to be the only thing "tough" about this container. I really thought these would be more durable than the flimsy "Sterilite" brand. They are not.

      Easily stackable and they fit together tightly so the stack wont lean. In storage I have them 6 high with the bottom container taking at least 600lbs on top no problem. The price is right and the quality exceeds my expectations. We use them for our desert gear. Highly recommended.

      These are by far my favorite storage bins. They are very sturdy and don't buckle like most cheap storage containers. Also, they stack better than any others that I have had in the past. My only complaint is the lip on the ends breaks too easy I feel and prevents the locking of the lid sometimes. As long as you don't over stuff them, it should not be a problem.

      The bins are sturdy and stack nicely. They are secure and the lids do not fold in. We purchased different sizes and stacked them in a 10x10 storage room with plenty of space left over. Best investment of the year so far!

      Fits your 13- foot Christmas tree
      I was looking for something to hold the sections of my 13' faux Christmas tree. This perfectly, I could even bag my treeskirt and add it to the box. Didn't even have to smoosh down all the branches. The longest section is a bit tight, but it costs securely. Wheels are nice, and I think this will easily stand on its end in storage. Happy with the price, and took me hours of searching to find a box to fit my tree, which closes securely. With wheels. Noce buy.

        Tough Storage? Name should be changed or product
        If it were easier for me to return the 20, YES, the 20 I bought of various sizes I would without a doubt. I bought these to organize holiday decor, craft supplies, and other items and they are such a disappointment. You have to fill it less than the maximum capacity in order to ensure the lid fits completely....but they only snap at each end so if you have pillows for example then the middle bulges up and it’s not completely shut. The lids are all difficult to open and actually hurt your hand. They smell horribly You cannot use to capacity because of the way the lids are designed to close (probably to force customers to buy more) The lids vary by different shades of yellow Just disappointed and not satisfied but I do not have the time or energy to return all of them but would not recommend. If I can’t use them to store inside household items, they definitely shouldn’t be used for “garage” storage.

          Best purchase I have made in a while. We bought a new pre lit Christmas tree this year and I was so tired of the old one and it’s mangled cardboard box. Storing it became a real pain point. This tub has casters and allows me to roll I’m, pack away the new 9.5ft tree and then roll out. Game Changer!!

          Great storage box. Only 10" high which is good for many applications. Fit easier on shelves and can stack. This 14 gallon sized tote is lighter for storing heavy items and fits well in the back of your vehicle. Will even fit behind the seat in most trucks. Latches on both ends and to make it secure lid for exterior traveling you can zip tie or use tie downs that fit through the holes on the top sides. It is the same length as the larger size so it fits well on top of the 27 gallon ones.

          I love these storage bins. They are sturdy built and stackable and with the recessed lid they lock together so they are less apt to fall over. I am using these to store wood scraps and small parts to help keep my garage organized and clean. They are light weight and very heavy duty making them great for storage. They could easily be set on a dolly and rolled under a bench for easy access. The only problem is that you can't fill them to the top you need to allow space for the lid.

          I use these totes to store extra wood scraps and I love the way you can stack them. They are really sturdy and solidly built. I don't have to be gentle when throwing the wood into it. I really like the heavy duty feel and look of this tote. The only issue is that when you put stuff in it you have to remember not to fill it all the way to the top so you can get the lid on.

          This is a great bin. It is tough, It is very stackable. It is well made. I own a few other HDX bins and this is the high quality I have come to expect from them. The top is cleated so when you stack them they stay put. I live up in the mountains and have to snowmovile home. This bin is perfect! I put a picture where you can see it and the 14 gallon model stacked on the sled behind my snowmobile before I head home. The 27 gallon modle will hold quite a bit. I put a one gallon container of cleaner in the bin to give you a perspective on the size. Three of these and I could easily bring home all the groceries and more. The only thing I would mention is not a negative but just something to remember is that the edge of the lid and the container have holes. I assume it is so that you could run straps through or so that you could even put a lock on it. It has to snapping handle catches so the holes are not to keep the lid on. What you want to remember is that the buckets are not water proof. They are very water resistance but if you leave them out in the rain too long the water could seep in through those holes. That being said, I love these bins. They are built so well. As I said I own a few others and take them camping, use them to haul things on my snowmobile, or just to store things in the attic or shed. They are the best bins I have owned and this one is the same high quality.

          These are really tough bins that are built from high quality materials. The 14 gallon bin is the same width and depth as the 27 gallon bin so they stack really well.The top is cleated so when you stack them they fit together really well. I love this bin. I live up in the mountains so I have to snowmobile home and these bins are perfect. As you can see by the picture with my snowmobile and sled they stack well. To give you an idea of their size I took a picture with a gallon bottle in it. You can see that the 14 gallon bin will not fit a gallon bottle of cleaner standing up. It would fit laying down but it is much better for things like mail, food boxes, or clothes. These bins are water resistant but not water proof. I took a close up of the lid and how it has holes that go through the lid. This means that if you were to leave them out in the rain, water could seep through the layers. They do hold up well for transporting even if it is in the rain. I can stack them in the back of my pickup and they are really easy to haul things. I own other HDX bins and these bins live up to the quality I have come to expect from this brand.

          The HDX brand of storage bins are really well made. I have many different HDX bins in different sizes and I am pleased with all of them. The bins heavy-duty construction will hold heavy items and can be stacked. When empty, the bins can be stacked inside of each other to help save on space. The red lid construction is identical to the more common yellow lids except for color. I like the diamond pattern on the one-piece lids from HDX branded bins. I think it offers more strength than the lids of other brands that have a square pattern. The lid secures to the bin with a tight fit overall and locking tabs at the ends of the lids which keep the lids secure but are easy to open. The one-piece lid will protect the contents from water getting into the bins when compared to a flip-top bin. As long as the lid is not cracked, I don’t see how water would enter this bin. The lids can be locked to the bin using a long shackle padlock. (See Image Below) I think there would be a demand for different colored lids as a way to indicate what is stored in the bins. (Green lids garden items, Orange lids Halloween decorations?)

          Light weight tote that holds a lot of tools or working materials. I like the interchangeable sizes that can stack on each other. The heavy duty plastic is durable and will not rust. In rainy climates it is perfect to keep things dry. The lids are easy to remove with the built in handles. The tote can take a beating in the back of a construction pickup.
