  1. Anyone have or seen a stihl or husqvarna combi can? Looking for something better quality then the cheap stuff available locally.

    These two Look promising.

    I think there a Pain in the butt. Tie a small rope from the gallon oil can to a gallon gas can.

    I have had one of the Husky ones for a number of years. Works great. I especially like the gas filler neck . It is spring loaded and does not spill. One of the better designs that I've seen in a long while.....

    Huh, never seen one of those before. I'm with Jay, looks unnecessarily complicated. But I'd still love to check one out in person!
  5. Here is link to a video of the husqvarna can.

  6. I'm down to my last pre-ban on common sense 1 gallon gas can. Haven't been impressed with the new 5 gallon blitz cans I bought. Very thin plastic and of course I spill more gas then ever before.

    The stihl and husky cans aren't cheap -- 30£ plus shipping, about $75 delivered. But quality pays in the end.

    Not paper thin like the Blitz junk (I know, I have 2 of them) and they pour faster than any other "new" can I've seen. Plus their spokeswoman is very convincing. She knows her cans. ;lol

    I'm cheap . . . I use the bar oil jug and an old windshield washer fluid jug for my fuel and tie a piece of twine between them . . . nothing fancy, but it works for me like it worked for my father before me.

    True, they're not cheap, but I was always spilling gas, and generally making a mess with my old bottles/cans. I know, that's my own fault, but no matter how I tried, I always made a mess. The Husky can took all of the guesswork out of the equation.... Just my 5 cents....

    Yeah, the Blitz cans SUCK. I use the No Spill cans. Have two of the 1 1/4 gallon cans for the saws for the mix and the oil and have another 5 gallon one for the splitter and the mower. I only have a single pre-ban 5 gallon can left myself. Still prefer the No Spill to the pre-ban can. I just like how it stops pouring as soon as I let go of the button. There is even an optional tube for them should you have to use them on a vehicle or something where you cannot get the spout into them without the tube.

    lol - I forego the twine, but I guess it makes them easier to carry with one hand instead of the old one in a hand and the other under an arm. I'll have to debate using twine in the future.

    Agreed !
    All those cans are POS ! I've used the rectangle antifreeze jugs for mix for 20+ years and don't spill . AND no gurgle and FREE !

    Am I the only one that throws his saw stuff in an old milk crate to take to the cutting site? Hatchet, chains, tools, gas, oil, all in one place.

    I'm too young for milk crates. I remember my parents having some around the house that they had bought milk in. Do they still have them around. Can I buy them? They would actually be pretty good for storing things in.

    Just did a google search and it appears they can be purchased.

    ;lol Fabs, you've got me by over a decade IIRC. I just seem to acquire them every once in a blue moon. 3 or 4 floating around here. All of them say I'm going to jail. :p

    Go down to the Highs store. they got a bunch out back.
    Get the good one's with the metal band around the top!;)
  18. I have a few milk crates around. But prefer a handheld shopping basket for the supplies, little easier to carry.

    Seem to find most of what I need in there somewhere. ;)
    no "no spill" spout on jugs. tried them, spilled too much gasoline with them.

    I turned the "you are going to jail" so you couldn't see it. Had this one for probably 30 years.;)

    lol - just mentioned I was going to buy some milk crates and my wife said we already have one out in the garage that she bought 9 years ago. She showed me where it is and I walked by it about 8 times a day. Good thing it wasn't a snake. Downside is it looks too flimsy, but I am going to give it a shot or buy a couple more heavy duty ones.

    Go to a flea market or auction. You'll prolly walk out with one full of goodies for a couple bucks.

    5 gallon buckets work good too.
    I drill a few small holes in the bottom (so they won't hold water)
