If you need bigger crates, ideal for peaches, plums, grapes etc, we recommend using wooden fruit crates 300 x 500. The same format is used for mushrooms or for peaches on trays, but with a shorter frame. All the fruit boxes are made out of poplar wood and have handles. The handles offer the boxes a nicer look and feel, it strengthens its rigidity and when the boxes are filled with fruit and stacked in the truck, the handles of the lower box offers support for the box above.
Characteristics of the 300 x 500 wooden fruit crates :
- The frame is made out of 4 mm thick and 90 mm wide element (on request you can order with 60 mm wide element for mushrooms)
- The corner is 120 mm tall, but it can be made 140 mm or 90 mm depending on your application
- The handles are 5 mm thick
- The bottom has 2 lateral pieces and 2 sticks on the middle
- For a better overall resistance, the bottom is stitched to the frame with an additional stitch on the short side
Amount of boxes per truck (in bulk)
- Normal truck : 5760 crates
- Mega truck : 6800 crates
- Super mega truck + trailer : 7400 – 7800 wooden fruit crates
The wight of a 300 x 500 wooden crate is between 400 and 600 grams, depending on how dry or fresh the crate is. The 300 x 500 crate will easily carry 10 Kg of fruits or vegerables.
