I was in my dealer's parts departement and I noticed he had they $8 gas can and another one that was $80. He told me that no matter how much you shake them up the won't bulid up pressure. So my question is how many of you have OSHA gas cans and do you feel that they are worth it. He also was telling me the only people who really bought were commerical comanines.

safety can

I own a safety can only because some other fellow lost one on the side of the road.A bit of a pain to fill because of the spring loaded lid,but it has a snap on funnel for pouring that I like a lot.

When the OSHA guy buys my gas, and pours it into my tractor.... He gets to tell me what type of can to use.

Until then, I'll keep using my little plastic ($0.50 at a garage sale!!) one. It works JUST FINE!!

I have three. Two were my dad's, and one work was tossing, becouse all the paint was worn off. It is nice becouse they don't build up pressure, but can be a real PITA to fill, and pour with that spring loaded cap. Would I buy one. Noway.

OK I guess I asked for that one!!!!:cry:

What I should have said is, does anyone have a link or picture of the $80 gas can?

It must be comedian Monday or something. :chicken:

Here an old one that I have. I don't use it regularly. The rubber tip won't let pressure built up

I have a can like that didnt pay for it. But i thought the can you was talking about was the one that you have to hook the slot in the handle and pull back to get the vavle to open. That ones thats a real pain in the a-- to open.:smiles:

Yeah, those are the OSHA approved ones. Try pouring gas out of that at chest height into a funnel.:duh:

The can you have pictures of has been discontinued because of lawsuits. Eagle doesn't even sell replacement rubber spouts for them anymore. It's a shame as I have several and I love them. Now I use the No-Spill can from No-Spill and I like them better but they only come in 1 gal and 2 1/2 gal sizes. The new Eagle safety can are like yall said are All-Spill cans.
