    There not stable at all. We have a ton of those totes at work and with out the cage the tank can split. We tried it once with just water and had one split before it even got full. We get them for forage inoculants and iodine.

    Just got my hands on one of these with hopefully more to come for making moving into/out of the future kiln easier.

    Here is how I modified mine for using with wood. Cut off the long side between the curves and stuffed some short pieces of round stock into the open pipe for something a bit heavier to weld to.
    Put a piece of angle iron on the bottom to retain the front edge which I might not do next time and just leave the bottom rail intact.
    The rings welded on the round stock keep the sides from spreading, and let me hang it on the back when I leave it open.

    Haven't filled it yet but will let you know how it works when I do.

    The pictures show a lot better than the thumbnails, I'm not sure why.
