    Default What is a "tote" of honey? (258 gallons?)

    What is a "tote" of honey? I was looking at a suppliers website and they say they have a tote of honey that is 258 gallons. I never heard of a tote before. What does it look like? Anybody here ever heard of a tote?

    I searched and found this: it is a 275 gallon tote.

    So totes of honey vary in sizes? or are they usually a standard size?

    I always thought 55 gallon drums were the biggest things you can get honey in.

    Nope. You can even find tankers of honey. Some operations are big enough to warrant their use.

    I'm sure that the size of the container that you want to use is dependent on your ability to move it and the ability of the buyer to handle it.

    When I saw your Thread Title I thought that you were going to ask about 5 gallon totes. Those are the totes that I have experience w/.

    All the square totes I've seen, and own, are the
    275 gallon ones shown. Handy rascals and cheap
    at surplus places ($50 to $100).

    But they are heavy to move if full!!!!

    The 258 gallon has me scratching my head, perhaps
    they are shooting for a weight mark??
