Behrens TCC 250-Pound Capacity Dual Trash Can Cart – Good trash dolly with a flaw

This makes taking the trash out easy and quick. I added to wheeled castors on the front and now i can just roll it down the drive for trash pickup. This is good and fairly solid.

It is serving its purpose only because of its price. But, i had to reinforce all the joints as that this is definitely flimsy. You are getting what you paying for. Others out there are much better made and sturdy, but those are 4 to 5 times the cost of this one. We made it work by reinforcing all the joints with duct tape. This would be duct tape usage number 1,052, lol.

My husband has not put this item together yet, but it will be a godsend to get our trash to the curb, especially since we also purchased the behrens trash cans, and they have no wheels,i wanted them because we have racoons in our neighborhood. They really make a mess (as far as our old rubbermaid trashcans were concerned) and since the new ones are steel i am sure those racoons can’t get in them also i am tired of cleaning up behind them (the racoons) thanks guys at amazon for having these behrens trash cans, i don’t know what i would do without them.

The process of putting this together was rather difficult and it arrived with several missing parts as well as instructions that were just awful. Very difficult to read/understand and it used images that were difficult to see as well. We had to jerry rig some parts to make it work. It does keep my cans from flying around when it is windy, which is why i bought it. So i suppose that’s why it gets 3 stars.

I have no idea why people write the reviews they do. For the price, this trash cart is perfect for the job. Believe it or not, you can make some adjustments when putting it together to prevent issues that some people are having. I am using it for two 31 gallon behrens trash cans.

The trash cans can easily ride on top of the wheels in the front. You must secure the cans with bungie cords to push it along. It works best to use the cords to hold the cans back toward you as you move along.

Purchased this product with steel trash cans to replace plastic bins routinely attacked by squirrels. I am pretty handy but these directions are not clear. It took 45 minutes to figure out. Prior reviews are accurate that if you store 2 cans on it, the can closest to the rubber wheels will rub. Need to remove one so dolly can be moved.

The trash can chart was a wise investment. It is quite easy to assemble and the instructions were clear. Generally, we have 2 full trash cans for weekly pickup along with our recycling baskets so it can take a few trips to get them all to the curb. With full garbage cans, it can be a heavy, cumbersome load. The cart is adjustable width-wise so it will fit virtually any size trash container. Cans and they fit with no trouble. Rolling the cart to the curb makes it much easier, both on the back and eliminates carrying them at an angle which lets the lids fall off on occasion. It also serves a purpose i hadn’t anticipated. The cart stops the heavy winds we have locally from knocking over the cans and having them blow and roll all around our driveway.

I actually purchased this item as a beach chair cart. First off, i received the item very quickly and all the parts (plus extras) were included, so i was satisfied with the shipping. Assembly was a piece of cake. Unfortunately, once the side arms were extended out to their maximum position to accomodate the width of the beach chairs, so there was not enough of the tubing left in the support brackets to provide the strength needed to hold the chairs. I took the arms off, inserted a short length of wood dowel into the ends and applied glue to hold the metal tubing over the dowels. After re-assembling, the wood dowels provided the support needed to be able to extend the side arms out far enough out to hold the chairs and still be sturdy. Works pretty well for a chair cart, except that the chairs lean against each other so if you want to get a chair out that’s in the middle of the stack, you have to rearrange the rest of the chairs to get to it. I don’t have to wheel it far, but not sure how it’d hold up if you had a longer distance to cover. Still, for the cheap price, it’s worth the minor hassle.

The product seems to be decent quality and all the parts were there. The best thing you could do with the assembly instructions, however, is wrap fish in them. These might have been the worst instructions i have ever run into on a ‘to be assembled’ product. The images were so poor that you couldn’t see what they were trying to show and they actually left out places where the washers should be put on. So, good product, but forget about the instructions.

We live in a condo complex situated in-between 2 golf courses. Hence, the wind factor causes us to chase down our trash when the garbage cans blow over. We have replaced our cans several times in just 2 years. This can cart holds our cans down nicely. It is great also for getting the cans out of the garage when they are full-it is easy to just pull the cart rather than having to drag them and wear down the bottoms.

This cart is exactly as described. It is sturdy, easy to move, and the instructions were on the mark. The person who mentioned that they adjusted the sides to fit their size trash cans is entirely correct. I was able to purchase the larger size (that i was wanting) instead of the smaller ones and could adjust it so the cans fit snug–even if one can is removed. I would recommend this product without reservation; in fact, am considering ordering another one for use in the yard.

I got the handle on backwards, haven’t had time to change the direction. Here are the specifications for the Behrens TCC 250-Pound Capacity Dual Trash Can Cart:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Cart carries two trash cans, holds 250 lbs
  • Adjustable side Bars, coated with durable epoxy coating, rolls quietly on solid rubber tires, ideal for both home & industry
  • Manufactured in China

My husband was very surprised when this was delivered. It took 3 of them to figure out how to put it together. He has copd, and would struggle to bring the barrel (we are only allowed one) down. He said it was so much easier bringing the barrel down the driveway to the street. He also gets the recycle box in there too.

I am really glad i purchased this product. It holds my garbage cans and keeps my garage neat and tidy. I highly recommend this product.

Behrens 6 Gallon Rust-Proof Steel Locking Lid Trash Can, Got mine for $16 at my local Agwayjs

Very nice bucket, use it to store pet food.

Item shipped fast and works as described. The lid seals nice and tight and keeps the smell inside.

Excellent choice for my use(storage of squirrel and bird food).

I use them for the cat litter box cleaning. I don’t have to run out to the outside trash every time i want to scoop.

These cans are nice but the dimensions are subject to interpretation. I needed something to fit under my husband’s grill table. The can is about 11 1/2” tall but the lid adds 3 1/2” making a total of about 15” and it won’t fit😢.

I have been researching and testing emp shielding devices for some time now (i have a bs in electrical engineering). This device is the best so far. Do not expect a faraday cage made from a box and lined with aluminum foil and sealed with electrically conductive tape to do nearly as well as this behrens can will; and do wrap important devices appropriately before placing in the can. A box lined with aluminum foil and sealed with electrically conductive tape will seal out fm transmissions (up to 108 mhz), but will pass cell phone frequencies (presently nearing 2 ghz). I’ve personally tested both—see pics attached. Emp bursts cover a frequency spectrum of up to 1 ghz or more (bradley, ’emp attacks and solar storms’, p72). The first picture is of the subject behrens 6 gallon container. The second picture is of a ‘bradley’ constructed box well sealed with electrically conductive tape. Do not depend on that method for your survival. I welcome all comments, especially those which are constructive.

I replaced many hard plastic sturdy storage cans (all sizes) because squirrels (maybe rats) chewed threw the very thick very hard sturdy plastic of the storage containers. I thought it would be impossible for rodents to chew through such robust storage cans, but i was wrong. Now with these behrens metal storage cans, my storage is rodent proof.

Comments from buyers

“I replaced many hard plastic sturdy storage cans (all sizes) because squirrels (maybe rats) chewed , Lid is really tight, Arrived with small dent.”

Absolutely love, we use this for our dogs poop bucket leave it outside and is perfect.

I had hoped this was a little bigger but otherwise they fit the bill.

Very useful for keeping bird seed outside on the patio. Squirrels have tried to open it but without success.

It gets 3 stars because it does hold trash. But the lid doesn’t fit well- to get it all the way on, you have to fiddle with it and then when it’s on, it’s very hard to get off. Also- the 6 gallon trash bags that are recommended with it don’t fit the rim- they’re too small.

Use it for dog waste outside. No risk of odor and creatures getting in.

Great pail, however, way too difficult to use the locking handle.

Keeps squirrels out of bird seed.

Buy these every couple of years for doggie waste, under grill, sand for driveway in winter and hot embers from fireplace.

Tight fitting lid that will keep all manner of critters out and odors in.

We used this to store salt in the winter on the porch. Good quality and lid is very snug.

A rock solid made in the usa canister.

The lid is really tight without even using the locking handle. It takes two hands to pry it off. On the plus side it’s really sturdy and does not leak. Com the invoice was like $5. 00 less than i paid on amazon. Yeah, so be aware you are buying from walmart and paying more than they are charging.

It keeps the varmints out of the birdfeed so far.

My bucket came with a small dent in the rim. I don’t think it will affect it’s use. Since i plan to use it to store ashes from the fire pit and the charcoal grill. Other than that i believe i would buy it again.

We put our dog’s poop baggies in there until garbage day. Seals in odors and keeps critters out.

Will be ok for me but that’s a pain. Bought for outdoor full of ear wigs overnight and it was empty. Can’t put any food or trash in it then. In fairness, i now do not think i had the lid on well. I can’t get the handle to come up over the top, so cannot lock the lid. I haven’t had any more bugs crawling in though. Working well as an outdoor ashtray.

Delivered on time and nice product.

Behrens 6106 6GAL Galv Garbage Pail – It keeps the smell of the poop at bay pretty well. Only problem is the lid is pretty

To be honest, i bought this for containing stinky dog poop baggies after walks and trips out to the yard. We store it outside, and it is surviving the rain well without rusting, and no water has gotten in. We also have a baby, so she has a diaper pail, and we call this a doggy diaper pail, because we are gross weirdos. It is a 6-gallon container, but please note that 6-gallon bags did not work in this container — however, the 8-gallon glad trash bags fit it perfectly.

 i have the ‘vittles vault airtight stackable pet food container 60lbs’ and while it does keep a tight air seal, the material its made up of is hard plastic. What i didn’t expected was that the neighborhood mouse was able to chew the lid and the container itself away, like nothing. So there is a big hole for them to enter the dog food that i place in the backyard. It was time to get a metal pet food container and after many searches. This ‘behrens 6106 10 gallon locking lid’ is my pick. I would of bought it locally at my home depot but they only carry the 6 gallon size. This metal container has a very nice galvanized finish smooth finish. The lid is not loose and its not tight either. It does have the ‘seal’ feeling when you place the lid on and take it off. I like the locking features so that no visitors from the backyard can have access to the dog food that is inside.

I ordered the medium size can and use it for dog treats. I can fit a whole costco size box of treats in it and still have space. I also added a vinyl decal on the outside.

I use this to hold the dog poop i pick up. It keeps the smell of the poop at bay pretty well. Only problem is the lid is pretty stiff and i’m sure that at some point i’m gonna be forcing it open and throw poop all over myself.

Over the past year have tried a variety of can types. First tried to go with a less expensive, under $20, hard plastic can. Terrible, those fall over constantly and the lids barely stay on when warm let alone cold. The next type went with a different style but same material and same problems. Then went and spent $40 on a much better ‘soft’ plastic trash can. No issues with that one at all other than it costs so much and that was without a lid. Then two weeks ago after searching the nearby fields for our plastic cans decided to try something different, old school metal cans. I wasn’t sure what to expect but was very pleased once they arrived and i saw what i was getting. Very good quality steel can. A flat bottom with just enough weight so it won’t go flying off or fall over in the wind.

The trash can i had before was too small so i decided to buy this. One of the best decisions i ever made. Instead of of taking out the trash everyday now it’s only twice a week. I included a picture of the garbage can and a 5 gallon water bottle to compare in size. If this review was in anyway helpful make sure to select that it was helpful. I did not receive this item for free or a discount.

This will be a second purchase of a locking lid can of this size. The first lasted 4 years in nc weather, year round. We use them in the dog yard for pet waste and find the size to be perfect. Not too large to be a space taker, but large enough to hold those wonderful doggy droppings from week to week for pick up. We line the can so the waste is not sitting in direct contact with the can and creating a smelly mess and breeding ground for all kinds of yuck. The lid seals nicely onto the can so there is no odor. I am able to remove it with one hand and a good tug or two. Given that the can is exposed to all kinds of weather and we do have a plastic liner that keeps moisture against it, i feel that it holds up well to constant, day to day use. I really have no cons to offer. Hope you find this review helpful and will click yes to rate it.

I painted it a bronze color with rustoleum spray.

This tin looks just as pictured. I was worried because of some of the reviews saying they got an inferior product, but i got exactly what i purchased. It locks and is very sturdy. I purchased it to hold dog food in. I also purchased a cute vinyl decal to go on the outside. I will probably be purchasing more for other storage around the house and outside.
