I'll pay you for 2 of them. I got some used ones from swiss army vehicles and they are nice, but they are used (gas, diesel). Now that I saw how nice they are (got here today) I want to ditch my plastic water jug and use a few of these for water so they need to be brand new.

What do you think?
I got two of these this week and overall was not impressed. They said there was some surface rust, but one of the ones i received needs to be repainted. I am not happy.

Did you get the ones that were supposed to be new, or the used ones from Swiss Army Vehicles? Mine from Swiss Army Vehicles came in yesterday and they look pretty good I thought for $28 each. One even had a little gas in it. I poured it into the gas can for the mower.

I picked up 2 at the Arvada army surplus 1 was new for 49.95 and 1 was used it was marked the same price but I got 20% off. They were the only ones but the manager said he had more used ones at the warehouse. The used one is in very nice shape no dents or rust.

I got the used that had "light surface rust" as i remember; anyway, i posted a pic of what I received.

Functionally they will be great.

Nope They are just hard to track down. Though I think my final cost for the 2 I ordered was only in the 55 each range. (after shipping, and getting new viton gaskets to replace the rubber ones. Which by the way I have if someone with a diesel could use)
