    Question Bucket Buddy?

    From actual experience does anyone know if it`s any good or not for detailing?

    First time I have ever seen anything like that. In theory it looks like it would work, but it may be too heavy to move around with both buckets full. Some of the reviews look like they were provided by the manufacturer. After careful consideration I would respectfully pass. Lol

    Like rlmccarty2000, I haven’t ever seen that either.

    Unless I was washing offroad, I’d get another one of these carts: https://www.webstaurantstore.com/cho...CARTBLGBK.html and bore a couple bucket sized holes in the middle shelf. Set the top shelf back on when you’re not washing and you’ve got a small work area.

    Weve got a couple of these carts at my work and they’re actually really nice. Loaded with 100+ lbs of tools and they roll around smoothly. And it’s got locking casters if you’re on a slant

    Oneheadlite,

    That is exactly the price point I want to be in for a cart. I snapped a screenshot so I’ll remember the website. Thanks for sharing

    I had bought one for another Autopian during the Christmas exchange deal some time back. I don`t think he ever posted his thoughts on it.

    I found this one after I had bought a nice rubbermaid cart with sides from HD years ago for $105. Got it, really liked it, but when I went to buy another the price was now $400. They must have screwed up the price somehow, because I could never find another one like that for that price. I found the Choice cart because I had ordered some carafes from that restaurant store and stumbled onto their cart section.

    Hooray, I helped!

    The Bucket Buddy looks like it would work, just that its construction is a bit flimsy, like with everything I bet its made in China...

    I like the idea a lot. I wonder how flimsy it really is when there are 2 buckets inserted. The buckets may stabilize it a bit.

    I have it, its pretty good, but not the best, the handle gets in the way a lot, but it is very easy to move buckets around.

    Just by looking at it I can see improvements I`d do to it right away, one, it should have a pivoting rubber caster wheel in place of the walking cane style plastic tip on the end of the pipe, second, the rear tires should be rubber air tires instead of hard solid plastic, lastly the steel rings need stabilizers on each side to make the buckets more stable.

    Re: Bucket Buddy?

    Looks to me like it`d be handy enough if you`re at the right height, otherwise you`d be reaching up/down to get hold of that handle.

    I`m using the "Bucket Buggy" type dollies, two of `em connected together for the TB stuff.

    IMO it`s one of those purely subjective things, great for some, wrong for others.
