At first glance the Dover Parkerburg 610 is clearly a step above the competition, the smooth galvanized exterior is indicative of the more modern electrocoat process which produces much less surface bubbling and insures a uniform surface. Jagged Edges? Not on this baby! Also of note are the two horizontal ripples which are placed 6 inches from the base. A simple structural analysis and crush test showed the slight corragative additions to be more than simple decorations, they actually produce an increase in tensile strength of 35.8% when compared to smooth walled galvanized buckets of the same carrying capacity.
Although I have used the Dover Parkerburg less since installing our new fangled "Water Closet", I display it with pride, knowing that I own the best 2 gallon galvanized bucket in town.
This bucket is great for decorative painters. You can use it for clean and/or dirty paint water and you can also display your artistic talents on the outside of this bucket. Also use it for carrying your painting supplies to and from class. You can fill it with ice to store your painter's drinks and snacks too.
Previously, I focused on collecting antique buckets. I especially like the baked enamel ones, but it is hard to finds ones that have no chips or heavy wear. And buying even older wooden buckets has become cost prohibitive as a hobby. I fairly drooled last year when the colonial bucket discovered in the attic of Betsy Ross' former home went on the block at Christie's. My husband made me stop bidding at $10,000, saying that since we both have no jobs we need the money for heating, electricity and baby formula. I disagree, but we must all make our sacrifices in the name of a blissful marriage.
Brio's Metal Garden Pail (32125), also sold on Amazon, come in beautiful colors and are perfect for serving food at large parties, like gravy and vegetables at Thanksgiving. They are not only festive, but also are unbreakable and virtually spill proof.
I eagerly await fall 2010, when Dover Parkersburg is due to debut their fold up metal bucket, similar to a fold up travel cup. It will be a unique addition to my collection, and save on packing room when I'm headed to the National Bucket Enthusiasts' Convention. I highly endorse their product line.

I was one to originally think a bucket is just a bucket. But this one is apparently one hell of a bucket. Yeah! Buckets!Published 18 months ago by Brian Appel
These are really nice, sturdy buckets. We use them for water, sand, mud, leaves, acorns, etc. Nice and heavy when full.Published 21 months ago by Teachermom
Used this bucket for water and it has just rusted out in the bottom. Thought it shouldn't rust if it was galvanized.
Wouldn't recommend for water.
