Tractor Supply had the Genuine Article, a covered ash can that was about 10 gallons I would guess. Works great n fits up n down the stairs just fine.
:idea: Thinking about cutting a rectangular hole in the cover so I can just slide my furnace ash pan inside and dump the ashes right inside and hopefully catch a lot of the dust :D

I have a 55 gallon drum that I'm dumping the ashes into. I hang a vaccum cleaner hose in the drum and turn it on before I dump. Very little dust escapes.

Good :idea: idea Freddy What do you do with the drum of ashes? I need to bag mine. Taking your operation one step out, I could place a 10 or 15 gallon plastic bag lined galvanized ash can inside the 55 gallon drum and use the vacuum trick to keep the rest to a minimum.

This is a good thread for me cause I'll need another bucket. I was planning on using a metal 5 gallon bucket until the one bushel bucket I have cools enough to dump. How do other's bag ashes from the bushel buckets? I did do several searches for such posts but nothing came up with the strings I searched with.

When the drum is about full I take it to camp & fill potholes in the road. It's heavy! I'll guess 300 pounds. Don't ask or I'll say I have to put my beer down & use both hands. ;) :)

55 gallons of ash already? Sounds like your new baby is healthy and eating as well as mine!
The visiting grandparents at Christmas will be so proud. :lol:

It's been running about 6 weeks. The drum was not quite full, but at this point I'd say it's made just about exactly 55 gallons of ash. Is that a lot? Hardly any? I just don't know!

Freddy;

How much coal did you burn to create 300# of ash?
