Fortiflex Flatback Bucket - Five Gallon is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality I'll know more after using it for a winter, but appears to be a nice quality bucket and was a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bucket Exactly what i was looking for, still looks sharp even after being used for weeks by a hay dunker. Perfect. And it shipped in a neat little package, super fast. Great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the best buckets, so happy that I can get them from Smartpak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these buckets My gelding has two water buckets in his stall... one is a Fortiflex and the other is another brand. The Fortiflex bucket is the only one he drinks out of! Either his highness is offended by the color of the other bucket (it's pink) or he's just got good taste, but he'll be getting another Fortiflex bucket soon to replace the other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sturdy Bucket Works great! I bought this bucket to give my horse water after we work out, and it works perfectly.
Date published: 2012-06-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy buckets for farm and home use I got a value pack of these buckets to use in my horse's stall and for use at home. Excellent quality for the money- sturdy and well made.
Date published: 2012-06-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from For a bucket, its pretty nice I bought the blue bucket so that I could check each day to be sure it was getting scrubbed - the light color allows me to do this easily. It lays well against the stall wall, and does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fortiflex I have had several buckets over the years and they last literally forever! Love Fortiflex!
Date published: 2012-05-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buckets These are great buckets, and the only kind I like to use in the barn. They are durable, last forever and are easy to clean.
Date published: 2012-03-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Price It is less expensive than other brands of the same kind but just as good of quality.
Date published: 2012-02-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I had bought some "better buckets" but they do not work for hauling water. They are good for just hanging in the barn though. These are way better for packing water.
Date published: 2012-02-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fortiflex Flatback Bucket Excellent quality; durable. Although I have a water tank in the paddock I like having a bucket with water in the stalls too. (My horses have open access to paddock and stall) The 5 gallon size is just right.
Date published: 2012-01-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I am very impressed with the quality of these buckets and the capacity. Meets my expectations and needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these buckets I love these buckets. I have used them for years for all of my horses. They are sturdy and so easy to clean. The variety of colors available is just a bonus! For water, feed, toting stuff around, bathing time....they are multi-functional. Will definitely buy them again when the time comes.
Date published: 2011-09-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from water buckets for trailer good quality buckets. Great price for using in our trailer.
Date published: 2011-09-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Buckets Buckets are very well made and should hold up very well. I was also pleased with speed of shipping.
Date published: 2011-08-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very heavy duty Very heavy duty bucket. Its shorter then the other buckets I've used in the past, but it is much wider then them. The metal handle is super strong, and the plastic seems very durable. I am sure this bucket will last long as my horse's water bucket.
Date published: 2011-07-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical Item Have used these buckets forever. They last well. Only got a new one because I ran over one of my show buckets with my trailer. Recommend these.
Date published: 2011-07-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mfg in Oklahoma, USA I bought two new buckets as replacements for some that were very old-probably over 20 years of use. They are safe and easy to clean and carry when nearly full of water. Color choices are nice for leaving horse sitter instructions, like "grain in green bucket and water in blue bucket." Once I came home to find grain poured into the water bucket-oops-horse was a little upset about the missed feeding and it was a messy waste of feed! Comes with detailed instructions, 5 year warranty against defects. Has a horse head etching on the outside, gallon/liter markings on inside. One tip-if your horse is a bucket-banging enthusiatic eater, a flexible black rubber bucket is more quiet, but not so easy to clean as hard plastic. Label says construction is a blend of EDPM Rubber and HDPE. EDPM Rubber is a synthetic rubber compatible with hot and cold water. HDPE is a Number 2 plastic, which is supposed to be safe for food/water use. Some horses prefer to drink from metal buckets, probably for the same reason people don't like the taste of water from a garden hose. There is a lot of concern about the safety of drinking from certain plastics. (Numbers 1,2 4, and 5 are considered safer than 3,6, and 7. The brochure that comes with the bucket states that it may be used for watering and feeding around the farm. Flatback Model FB-120 holds 5 gallons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy This is a good sturdy bucket and the price is great!
Date published: 2010-04-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buckets in cold weather I bought these for times when I can't use heated buckets-like for the barn Labs who chew anything-they are holding up well and the ice seems to slide out. Now I don't have to cart buckets back to the house to thaw which is really nice for me. I would buy these again.
Date published: 2010-01-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these! I love the flatback buckets so much better then regular buckets. I highly suggest these buckets! They are very durable.
