It took 2 ATV trips to haul 100 two gallon buckets back to the barn.

45 stack up nicely in the back with 10 in the front.

If you're shipping those buckets to your customers, that's a lot of packaging you need, and a lot of empty volume you have to ship.

Just a thought, but if you replaced the bucket with a thick PE or PP bag, the shipping volume, weight and material usage would be considerably reduced.

Thermoplastics like PE and PP can be welded, so adding an edge to keep the top of the bag open would be possible, as would welding in the actual nipples.
