No, a bucket is not included with the Back Butter Buddy.

Back Butter Buddy

by Robert -

Product works very well, saves your arm from tiring. I used it while laying 18x18 tiles in my shower, made the job so much easier. After a while your arm gets tired holding it while buttering large tiles, unless your a lot stronger than me, with this my arm never got tired. Makes laying tile a lot faster, just pile tiles onto it, butter and set, and ready for the next one.
