  • 275-gal totes for $50 each...

    ...are available from this gentleman:

    John Desimone
    76 Passaic Avenue
    Florham Park, NJ 07932
    cell: (973) 954-6427

    Description:
    Base is 39" x 47"
    Height is 45"
    4-way metal pallet bottom (can be fork-lifted fm any side)
    metal cage around poly tank
    2" ball valve on front near bottom
    6" screw-on lid on the top

    These were used to do 1-way imports of olive oil from Italy... I just don't think it gets any better than this for our purposes.

    I bought three of them from him... tell him I sent you his way so I can get a HUGE referral bonus... - well, okay, there's no referral bonus, but tell him anyway. He said he routinely has 10-15 on hand and would be delighted to be rid of them.

    When I pick mine up, I'll post a pic fer ya, since I know that'll be the first question I get from youse guys...

    (I miss the old sumo beer buddies... NOT)

    Hey Eric, isn't Jason up your way somewhere?

    If so, tell him to put a couple on his truck and bring them down here for me...lol.

    Unfortunately I don't think that would work, but I'd sure love to have a couple of them for $50!

        Yeah it is...I managed to score my first one for free, but if I could find more for $50 I'd jump on it.

          I just gave John a call as I'm only about an hour away. The wife will be happy as these things take up much less space than 55 gallon drums!

            $50 a tote is a great deal. I was paying $100-125 for mine with wooden pallets on the bottom. They were also filthy inside with this dried on milk based crap that took 30 min a tote to clean out. I may have to grab a few of these on my way back from FL in a few weeks.

            If enough people want some of these in the upstate NY area I could take my trailer down and bring back 8-10 of them.

              Well, can't fit any tote pics, but they're just like all the poly totes with a cage around it that you see out there. (I guess I've reached my limit of pics to post.)

              Anyway, John's a real nice guy and he's got a big pile of them and an even bigger pile of 55-gal steel drums. They all held high-grade olive oil - and are in great shape. The steel drums are coated on the inside, too, which is nice. He's ready for someone to come and snag a bunch.

                They tend to vary a bit as far as connections and whatnot but here's the basic idea:



                I'm going to give John a call soon because I'll be in the area on Saturday. It will be nice to be able to consolidate my supply into one corner of the garage.

                      Not a hijack at all - I'm not the seller. Good to know there are other inexpensive totes out there for sale!
