Super markets will at times part with a few or try the Dairy's. They dont give them away like they used to though.

Just a note. and i got this from a dairy guy. alot of the company owned crates are just that. they are company owned. some are even marked with words of protection on them, that haveing them can be a violation of the law. i willl telll ya tho he told me this cause he saw the three of them i had straped to my four wheeler. . so be sure to ask, or buy them and keep the reciept if they have a major dairy's logo onit. ... paul

I've had my two milk crates since 1972. I purchased them legally and yes I have always kept the reciept in my wallet just in case I get pulled over or questioned about them..... smile

coombia21: Yes, in fact I just went out to check it again, but a 5 gallon bucket does fit inside the crate. In fact in addition to putting my 20# cyl in one so it doesn't tip over I have two of them wire tied to the rear deck of my ATV. It works great to put a 5 gallon bucket in with rods, or a vexi or the minnow bucket. I think they are invaluable. Just my thoughts of course. Bill

The ones I have seen at Menards arent as thick and durable as the good ones at the Dairy places or Grocery stores.

Are there different sizes? I have one from menards but my 20 lb tank does not fit snug in it...there is like 1 - 2" of play....doesn't seem secure. I thought I remember seeing guys whose tanks sat tight in the crate. Maybe I need a heavy duty dairy style crate for this. Thanks.

    • We should have a holiday every month........   I mean a paid holiday....    lol
    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
