Quality construction with mid-range stiff wire that is pliable enough for Pigtail crimps and stiff enough for "Z" crimps. Mid-range stiffness helps maintain ball shape.Galvanized wire for longevity. Stays rust-free, looks great and maintains its strength. Non-galvanized baskets, for even more savings, are available upon request.Welded bottoms are standard as they provide additional bottom strength and require less time during tree digging. Open bottom baskets are also available on request. The open bottom baskets will have pre-folded bottom loops for better transport and one less step for the crew to do in the field.High quality multi-part welded construction. Typical loop-and-ring style holds together well due to use of quality wire and superior production techniques.Packed and shipped with you in mind! Baskets are palleted sitting upright to help prevent shipping damage to the top of the basket. They are also bundled in stacks of 25 (up to the 36" size), and held by a single strap. Tough strapping holds tight, but one cut will quickly and easily free the stack for use. This strap also makes carrying baskets easier.
