    Alright lads i have had a problem with my last 2 bucket belts,the part at the top that has 2 small rivets connected to the belt clip keep getting rusty and snapping off,and was wondering is it because of the winter,getting wet,or is it due to poor manufacturing,the reason I ask is that this is the second 1 I have had in the last 10 months from the same shop.it's an ettore I'm using,thanks

    I thought the ettore buckets were good.. Although one of my unger buckets this happened, so I just used a nut, bolt and washers! 50p fix

    yer get a new one, then tell the misses to sew that one, then you have a spare to use on really dirty first cleans etc!
