Tote stacking??

im in the early stages of wvo collection and filtering. my filtering setup is almost done. my issue is i am getting a lot of oil coming in. I just got a lead on 80 Gal that i can go pick up today. i have one empty 275 gal tote that i was planning on using for clean oil. my question is, could i stack them. put the clean oil on the top, old oil on the bottom. eventually the clean oil would be heavier than the dirty oil bin. im worried out that weight being on top and if it could hold the weight?

Stack them up to three high and dont worry about it. Thats what they are made for. Most totes came across on a boat in a sea container. THREE high.

I stack full totes two high and have done so for years.

Depends on what you are stacking them on. That's alot of weight to hold up. Concrete floor Right one the ground for example that would concern me. I wouldn't feel comfortable stacking them 3 high no matter what but that's just me. 2 high

All metal caged totes can be stacked atleast 2 high(granted this is if they have no damage). Some brands can be stacked 3 high but its usually only the 250 gallon ones.
I have a 250 on top of a 330 with a row of brick under the back side so the are slightly tilted forward.
I regularly climb up the side of 330 to get to the top of the 250. Ive tested the tipping ability of the 250 and anything over 50 gallons and it wont budge with my 245 lbs.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away.
