Square Top Barrel Makes Cleanup Easy
“You can lay it on its side to sweep in leaves or construction debris and the barrels won’t roll away,” says Jon Steeves, a Connecticut based landscaper and inventor of the Square Barrel.
“We made it wide enough to get a standard rake in,” he says. “It also fits a standard 24-in. push broom if you’d like to sweep debris into it.”
The orange barrel is square at the top and tapers to a round bottom. Steeves says that makes it easier to roll or drag away.
The Square Barrels stack well and are easy to store. He says if a farmer lined up three of the barrels next to each other, it’d be easy to put feed into a loader bucket and fill the barrels without spilling, thanks to the wide square mouth.
“When we were putting it together, we wanted this thing to be durable,” he recalls. “It’s weight-rated for 2,000 lbs. It holds 70 gals. We’re hoping to add different sizes to the lineup in the future.”
People interested in a Square Barrel can go to the website to find a store locator. Steeves has more than 120 businesses set up as dealers. Price typically ranges between $99 and $120, depending on who you buy it from.”
