Often times, when we receive bulk deliveries of liquid fertilizer or wetting agents, they are packaged in large totes. Typically, the companies who sell the goods are not interested in getting these totes back. So, what do we do with these containers?
Well, for years we have been using large concrete mortar pans to hold the divot mix we make. These metal pans cost a few hundred dollars, and eventually rust out.
In trying to come up with a good replacement for these, a light bulb went off, and after a quick zip with a reciprocating saw, we now have a new divot mix storage container.
As the saying goes, "One man's trash is another man's treasure." Whether you call it recycling or repurposing, we now have a good divot mix container which won't rust, and the price was right! An added bonus is that this can easily be moved with a pallet jack or loader forks.
