    Careful on the P&P though...it's £4.95 or something like that, so it'll probably be cheaper to buy more than 1 thing at a go.

    Currently, yes. Why do you ask?

    You're not thinking my lifts are in kilos or something or you? [:p]

    By the way, I ordered 2 of the 20 litre Jerry cans last night, i'll give you all a review when they arrive!

    Sorry, the 'ripped' part is meant to be humourous, hence the little smiley face after I say it (i think im about 20%).

    Go have a look at my photos in the general forum

    Got my two 20 litre Jerry cans today!

    Came so quick, I only ordered them late on Saturday night. Also, they look in perfect condition, no scratches on the paint or anything.

    Just filled them with water, and they're far too light (only about 30kg). So, i'm off down B&Q in a minute to buy some sand, hopefully that will at least double the weight if I make it wet. If not then i'll just strap some plates to the side!

    Yeah!

    Mikey, i had this problem before, (water being too light), sand isn't appreciably heavier in small containers, you really need to go for concrete.

    I know that sand won't be heavy enough, but I thought that totally water-logged sand would be very heavy. Am i wrong?

    I don't want to mess it up because once I've chosen what to fill it with, they'res no going back (the neck is far too small to get the contents back out again).

    Could anyone give me some ideas of what 20 litres of wet sand will weigh? Also, 20 litres of concrete? Thanx

    p.s. I'd like them to each weigh about 80kg for Farmers walk etc.

    Water and Sand do not combine to form a substance which is heavier than either of the two. [:p]

    Sorry, I don't quite understand you?

    Wet sand is far heavier than dry sand. It might not look like there are gaps between grains of sand, but there are. Water can occupy these gaps, and therefore whilst the volume of the matter remains the same, the mass of it increases considerably.

    Howdy,
    If you fill the jerrycans with concrete, they still might not be heavy enough.
    20l of water weights 20Kg (1Kg per litre), concrete is usually about 2.2-2.4Kg per litre, so bargain on about 45-50Kgs for a 20l jerrycan.

    I bought some of those army holdalls as soon as kighty posted this back in August, still haven't done anything with 'em LOL!

    I will eventually try to use them for farmers walk.
