Has anyone built a groover box using 40mm ammo cans?
They are a bit shorter and narrower (18.5x10x6) than the conventional 20mm ammo cans ( 18.5x14x8 ). I'd like to design a seat and riser for these smaller boxes as they will work better in my frame.

Is this box size compatible with the SCAT machine?

Any advice will be appreciated.

Thanks.

No guarantee, but this size should work in a SCAT machine. I had a friend do a 50cal ammo can in a SCAT machine after a kayak trip. As always bring some rubber gloves, lol.

Take photos once you build your groover.. I am very interested, as I plan on some small group trips and a trip with just my wife, and full size 20mm rocket box is overkill and takes up to much space in my little boat.

My only downside is I already have a 20mm dedicated as a groover. I'd only switch to a smaller poop box setup for cheap.

I have a bunch of 40's for my 14 footer. How many terds can you hold in there. I'd love to find out if there is a formula for space the park service uses. I can get away with a few days on a small trip!
Thanks

Park Service in the Grand and other agencies elsewhere use/have used 50 user days for a 20mm (rocket box) as a guide. You can do the math and figure out cubic inches alloted per use... in my experience, that's a fair estimate, YMMV. If your group is 200+ pounders and you're eating meat and potatoes every day...

What are you thinking for a holding tank? Or just planning to use the ammo can strait up?
Would be nice to come up with a smaller groover for the small boat trips.

can anyone tell me what the threads are for the cleanout cap? i am wanting to make a smaller groover for overnight trips/ small groups. i thought it would be something common for an rv or such, but it is not.
