Bulk Fermentation container question

I want to find a container for bulk fermenting 2000g or 4000g of dough for either 2 or 4 loaves.

What size containers should I get?

I use a 6 at bucket like one below.  I think it's good for around 3000 grams but you may be able to stretch it to 4000 if you don't expect a lot if rising.

Here’s a pic of 2400 g dough in flight. Would easily work with 4 kg.


Plenty of room for stretching, folding. Only downside is tub is  light enough to come up and off counter on initial folds. On the other hand it’s light and easy to store up high and out of the way. From Amazon or ???
