Behrens 20 Gallon Galvanized Steel Utility/Trash Can is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissatisfied No longer welded seams like earlier generations. If used for dry storage the lid will leak at the handle and the side where creased together leaks also.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not weather proof Great product to use indoors. If left out they are not weather proof and whatever you are storing in it will become wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for holding dog food! I was looking for this exact item that didn't cost an arm and a leg, and Tractor Supply had it at the cheapest price! It's well built and the perfect size to hold 35-40 pounds of dog food, so buy that Costco solize bag and be set for a good long time! My dog loves to eat and he can't get into this. I'm sure any squirrels who get into our garage won't be able to open it either. The lid fits snug but does not lock like the listing says, which isn't a problem for me. This can will last for a looooong time and I love the, ahem, farmhouse look to it. I highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little trash can Perfect for bird seed, holds more than one large bag of seed.
Date published: 2019-01-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little can I bought this to put bird seed in for the winters. It's both squirrel AND bird proof. It seems to work great with the lid snapping in place the squirrels can't remove it. I have only seen one try it so far, but am hoping he doesn't bring in two or three buddies to all pull at once. It is unlikely the lid will stay on with four squirrels pulling at a single time. Seventeen squirrels could probably knock it over, but we don't have that many in the yard yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and durable Great mice proof container for feed storage. Nice fit with the lid

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good for the price. great price for what you get. It isn't as sturdy/thick metal as my previous one, but I purchased to store dog food and it does the job! The lid does not fit snug on it either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from God construction Solid, waterproof when top on tight. Perfect size to store 2-3 25lb bags chicken feed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mini grain silos! We call these mini grain silos. These are perfect for keeping mice and critters out of our pet and livestock feed, I imagine they function in the same capacity with trash. I have put these through some avnormal abuse, carrying some full of grain in a loader bucket and they still maintain their shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the size I wanted a sturdy garbage can but not a big jumbo sold everywhere else. This one holds a good deal but is still a size that is easy to maneuver empty and full and fits into the trunk of my car for toting. Just perfect! (And I ordered online and could pick it up locally same day. Perfect x 2!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right size I use this for bird seed and it holds 60lbs perfectly. Keep an eye on the lid handle. Some have larger penetrating gaps than others. I put a little clear silicone on mine to keep the rain out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for storing bird seed outdoors I was so happy with the first trash can I purchased, I bought two more. I used them to store bird seed (sunflower, safflower, and chicken scratch grains) outside. We've had several heavy rain storms and the seed has been completely dry. I haven't seen any sign of rodent or raccoon activity either. If I need to store another type of seed, I'm definitely getting another one of these cans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great and very sturdy We bought this for storage of our tailgating chairs on our screened in porch. It looks so good I went back and bought other Behrens products. I love that they are sturdy but not too heavy. I think their products are well made, reasonably priced and made to last. Hard to find nowadays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This is perfect to store our chicken feed in our chicken coop

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for storing horse feed. I bought this to store the senior for my two horses. We've had it over a year. Still looks brand new. No issues with integrity or the handle. Going to pick up two more to store the feed for the rest of my horses as well as treats. Keeps the elements out and bugs. Would highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It Works I use this can to store horse feed at a boarding farm. The handle on the cover has come off which complicates it's use, but the rest of the construction is holding up fine. Did have some problems with feed at the bottom of the can feeling moist, but that is solved easily enough with a few landscaping bricks. I wish the handle could be re-attached but I'm not sure how to accomplish this.

Will it hold a half barrel keg?

Asked by: weddingcrasher
Our trash cans are not water-tight; I would recommend one of our utility tubs for this purpose.

How much feed can it hold? 50 lbs of chicken feed?

Asked by: Meiling
It depends on the weight and size of the feed as far as capacity is concerned. However, it will hold 50lbs.

Can this can be used for inground vegetable storage? I am looking for a can that can be buried up to its lid in dirt or gravel and is water proof to overwinter carrots, cabbage, etc. Will this can rust? Thank You

Asked by: Peggy1949
Behrens #1211 20 gallon can is not designed to be a watertight container. This is not the intended purpose of this can.
