Bought this because I was getting fed up of being ripped off at petrol stations for their small bags of very expensive coal, so I decided to start getting deliveries from a local coal merchant at a fraction of the price per kilo. This will hold 3 standard 50kg bags, but I imagine that it would be filled to the brim at that, so I ordered 2 bags, which leaves a little room for the coal to move about when I'm filling the coal scuttle. Hinges on the two doors are big heavy duty affairs, and the bottom door forms a ramp when open so you can easily get at the coal inside. The doors themselves are double-skinned for robustness. The opening at the top is big enough for the coal merchant to cleanly dump a bag inside without too much coal getting scattered around. The whole bunker is made of a heavy duty hard-wearing plastic compound, and has a bottom to it, so that if you needed to move it, you could do so without leaving a mess behind. Being completely enclosed, the coal is kept relatively dry, although some water did get in during recent storms, but that was an exceptional circumstance, and ingress was minimal. I've given this 4 stars only because I only give 5 stars to completely exceptional products ... I don't think I've given anything 5 stars yet.
