Bigfoot Systems® Bigfoot sonotube: BFT8 out-performs cardboard tubes - and all others!

The Bigfoot sonotube (BFT8 - see graphic above, right) is an 8" tapered cone made of recycled HDPE.The innovative inter-locking design uses 4 individual pieces to form a 4-foot long tube. The 4 pieces are nestable - making shipping easy and affordable.

The Models BF20 and BF24 Bigfoot Systems® Footing Forms will accept the new BFT8 which is simply snapped in place onto the Bigfoot.

  • Safety top keeps dirt, rain, kids, pets, etc. from falling into the tube prior to the pouring of the concrete
  • BFT8 will not break down due to dampness as the cardboard products do, therefore may be left in the ground until ready to pour concrete
  • The combined Bigfoot and BFT8 can cost 20+% less than the competitors and requires 33% less concrete to fill the system
