Ooh, I finally found one at a feed store...we used to have one, comes in handy sometimes. Now I think I need a cart for it. They couldn't find the cart, but were telling me about it, said they usually have them.

Mostly for putting gardening stuff in. It's kind of like an extra big bucket...sometimes you need something bigger. I'll probably use it first for moving topsoil to fill a new raised bed. I have a regular cart for moving it around, but I like some of the special carts made especially for the muck buckets. So I'm looking for a source.

I had to Google "muck bucket" only to find out I have one! I use it specifically for yard debris. I didn't know it has a cart to go with it either! Now I need one of those, too! Ahhhh! The thing one learns on ATP. I tip my hat to you.

Yeah, I did get the cart that the muck bucket fits in later that year, at the same feed store I got the muck bucket from. I remember when I was originally trying to find the muck bucket itself, employees at stores would look at me like I was crazy! Guess only some people know that term! I learned it from DH.

I just found this thread about using a muck bucket in the garden. It can be so handy for hauling top soil, weeds and even water. The problem is lifting the bucket in and out of the cart. My grandson Ben has patented a unique cart that lifts and carries a standard size muck bucket.
Google EZ LIFT MUCK BUCKET CART.
The site has a thorough video and it is entertaining. Also all work and no play is no fun. The cart is useful for ice and drinks at your next party.
PS; Ben is a Marine vet and an Eagle Scout. Thank you.
