    anyone know where i can buy or any ideas how to make a couple of those 55 gallon drums full of sand/salt. or what they are called lol i have a few locations where they want me to supply a few of them.

    ive seen a few fiber glass or plastic ones that would be really nice but i dont know where to get them.

    Go to a local shop and see if they have empties. At the shop I work at, they usually become trash cans.

    I get mine from a local "surplus salvage" store. Both steel and plastic.

    I have bought some from a car wash place. All the soap and stuff comes in them.

    Dont use a stand. Drive some rebar or woden stakes in the ground. That will hold er.
