Burn Barrel

21 Jul


This is a picture of my burn barrel I made from rabbit hutch wire. I think I have about $6 worth of wire in this project. The barrel seems to burn that garbage just fine doesn’t it? It will get about half full of unburned items such as glass and cans in about 3 months, then I will pick it up with my front end loader and dump that stuff in the back gully on the homestead.

Well, if you don’t like my home-made model you can buy this spiffy-looking super-duper factory model from DR Manufacturing. It looks like it should work just fine. It should because this one is on sale for ONLY $459.99 plus shipping. No way baby, no way! I think I will keep my home-made version and if it burns out I can build another one for $6 and I will still be $447.99 ahead. Keep prepping everyone!

    Home made beats four hundred and fifty bucks every time. Good job.

    Damn, I wish I had a gully.

      I wish mine wasn’t so big. I am going to buy a huge piece of culvert someday so I can drive across the gully to go into the wooded area of the homestead. Otherwise I only visit on foot.
