mortar boxes and pans
 
Hello, I am going to buy something to sit flat on the ground to mix cement in,I have looked a lowes and home depot and online.If the poly tubs by TuffStuff hold up I get one of them,I just dont want to waste money.Has anyone bought a mortar box from bon tools or Marshalltown? Your reviews are appreciated.

Just how much do you plan on mixing?
Ever going to need it again once this job is done?

Yes,I want to get something that will hold up under occasional use,I dont want it to be a one shot disposable purchase.Thank you for your advice.

Those plastic pans would fine for what little your going to use it for.

Thank you Joe,I found some at tractor supply made by tuff Stuff.There is one made by Sharp products Model UT3624 that claims to be 3 times better,but I havent got a price yet.Bon Tools has one for $81,but so long as the tuff tub holds up I will probably get that.Someday I plan to get a good metal one.Thanks again for help.

I've got some $12.00 ones I bought at Home Depot that I've been using for years.
