    Might work good for maybe a dozen CX meat birds.
    78 in. x 47 in. x 39 in.
    I wouldn't want to have to go in bent over at the waist to do maintenance.
    Would probably need some additions/modifications.


    Hard to know how well the metal would hold long term....
    ....would depend on how it was used in what climate, maintained, and stored.


    Not sure I'd buy one without being able to touch it first.

    I second the need to see and touch- generally the wheels need to be replaced to something more functional but it seems a good price and if the return process seems easyish I will likely give it a try. I need something lighter than what I currently have.
