Fortiflex Flatback Bucket - Five Gallon is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bucket for the money Fortiflex buckets - both the 5 gal flat back and 2 gal round feed pails - are our go to buckets here on the farm. We have been using them for years and they hold up quite well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Barn Staple Can't go wrong with Fortiflex. They are durable, colorful and have the bottom ridge which makes it great to toss water.
Date published: 2018-08-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Durable! I bought these for my horse and when they first came out of the box, I already loved how sturdy they felt. Would definitely recommend these buckets to anyone!
Date published: 2018-07-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, classic, sturdy bucket These are my favorite horse buckets. Easily to hold up with one double-ended snap. The flat back stabilizes the bucket against the wall, and leaves a little extra leg room when carried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value My horse is kinda rough, and he hasn't manage to damage this bucket yet. It holds a good about of water, and is easy to clean.
Date published: 2017-02-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best and American made! Fortiflex buckets are the best buckets. I still use my first small grooming bucket. It's from 1995 and looks brand new. : ) I bought four bright blue buckets for my horses' stalls. They are perfect. I love how Fortiflex includes that they are "proudly made in the USA." Smartpak offered them at a great price, too. Great product and highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bucket Not much to say about a bucket, but this one looks good and the price is right. Can't testify to longevity yet, but I assume they'll be in the rotation for a long while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bucket at a great price! The perfect size bucket for watering, etc. Good quality and put up with the abuse that horses can dish out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bucket There a probably a million and one uses for these buckets. I have at least two for each of my horses, in their particular colors. I have found these buckets cheaper other places, but once you factor in shipping SmartPak wins!
Date published: 2013-06-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from don't waste your money on any other bucket! This is a super strong bucket! Not some cheap one. Big too!
Date published: 2013-06-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product These buckets are far superior to using "recycled" 5 gallon pails. They hold up well to all the abuse that the weather and the horses can dish out, such as freezing full of water in the winter or use by a horse as a scratching post. The flat back also makes them easier to carry when full of water and easier and nicer to hang from a post or wall than a a round bucket.
Date published: 2013-05-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Good quality bucket. Sturdy, durable, and easy to use. I use it to soak beet pulp and cover it with an E-Z on bucket cover.
Date published: 2013-03-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from They're buckets They're buckets and hold water without leaking= success!
Date published: 2013-03-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great water buckets! I've used Fortiflex buckets for about 5 years...I've got three eye hooks on the wall of each of my stalls, so that I can hang up to 3 buckets on the hottest of days. These are very sturdy, quality buckets. Every once in a while--probably after about a year--I'll have buckets that start to warp. I think this happens with any water buckets though. When I replace the warped ones, I re-use them as garden totes! Great to put tools for yard work in to carry around the yard, so even after they are no longer water buckets, they are still useful!
