Used aluminum and galvanized sap buckets for sale

The price of Chinese made sap sack holders and taps have increased 30 percent this year because of tariffs coming into the US.

The Sap sack holders are now $3.85,  5/16″  aluminum taps are $1.85 and bags  are  $0.30 each or .25 if you buy 250 of them.    Another option would be to purchase  my used 4 gallon galvanized or 3 gallon Aluminum buckets with a new 5/16 plastic bucket tap and lid. The bucket, lid and tap setup would cost $7.00  vrs $6.00 for the sap sack holder, tap, and bag.

I know it $1.00 more for the bucket set up,   but I have never seen a squirrel or chipmunk chew through a galvanized or aluminum bucket  or  seen wind or ice break a bucket.  Anyway its something to consider when you are thinking of adding more taps.  Buckets do need to be rinsed out every year which is a down side, however you will not have to buy bags every year and you will keep the plastic out of the land fills.

Happy Holidays,
