5 Gallon Flat-Back
This bucket is great for horses and large dogs. It has a capacity of 5 gallons (20 quarts), with a built-in thermostat and will keep water ice-free during below zero conditions. The heater is completely hidden within the walls of the plastic bucket. The "flat back" allows it to be conveniently hung in a stall. Each unit comes complete with a sturdy bail and a six foot power cord.

I have had these buckets for 4 months now and the weather just really tested these buckets. It was -25F this morning and the buckets were still ice free. I do not think I can ask these buckets to perform any better.
I am now on my second Heated Flat Back Bucket from Allied Precision Industries. The first one melted along the sides, about an inch up from the bottom, and developed leaks. The management at Quality Supply in Missoula, MT gave me another. Now this one is showing distorted plastic in the same places, and looks like it too will leak if I continue to use it. I do not use an extension cord, and the bucket is snapped into an eye bolt in the wall. I do suspect the pony mare in this stall may be playing with the bucket, spilling the water. But according to the web site the element only goes to 50 degrees and shouldn't be affecting the bucket's plastic even if empty.
