OT pick your brain!

Hey fellas. I am looking for something and I cannot figure out what it is called. We called the breakdown pallets. They are a pallet with sides that fold up to make a 4 sided tote. They can then be stacked one on top of the other elimanating the need for a large rack. does anyone know what they are called?

Ya only go around once, best to enjoy it the first trip.

I know what you are talking about, just don't know what they call them.

Pretty close, The ones I have seen have a partial fold down fron so you can still load them while they are stacked and thy don't have a top cover. Very similar. I found a few on ebay under bulk storage. There are 9 in Michigan but that is 450 miles from me. The price is right but by the time I went and got them I am not sure it would be so good.

Pallet Tote, Pallet Container.
I know what your talking about....I think this Ebay Item is what your talking about.

They use a lot of them in the auto and aerospace industry.

Have you checked out Craig's List in your area? I used Craig's list for the first time last weekend....and I have sold more since then than all the garage sales combined....it rocks.

You're not talking about a Tri-Wall are you?
Palette with cardboard walls. You couldn't stack them if they weren't loaded...

we use them a lot in the forces for bulk items that are loose. (u/s boots, scrap clothing/cloth.. that kind of thing.)

The second one that Larry posted is what we are looking for. They have ome on ebay for less than 100 each. I would buy 10 of them if they weren't in Texas.

I will checkout craigs list and search on the rcomendations.

Found some smaller ones on craigs lis abou half way between dirt dog and I,,,,, Beer fest???? anyway they are about a foot smaller than my "Minimum " size but are priced right,,, I found some in michigan that would be perfect, but I am trying to figure if it is worth the 200.00 in fuel to go get them.
