    This Spill Containment unit is a great item to have handy regardless of the size of the leaking machine or vehicle you may be working on.

This mat will lock in the lubricants and cannot be wrung out or reused. The PVC holder is heavy duty and is weighed down to prevent winds from blowing it over easily.
