Looks ok and similar to ironworks ? depends what you want to do in the crate ? all the crates are heavy and hard to move around unless you add wheels , most are put into a race and stay static .  Had a quick look crates for sale  ebay / gumtree / pre loved / farming ads

Thanks ironworks was the one I wanted looks like I just purchased a second hand one picking up tomorrow this was a back up as new delivered was £700 but did not know if it would be any good

Well aware of the difficulties of turnovrcrate usage and most get left in field against hedge????

Unfortunately I am going to have to learn by experience,get ready for for sale add for ironworks sheep turnover crate for sale “little use”????

Appreciate your response????

When I had one I got the local blacksmith to weld on stub axels at the front and bought 2 small plastic wheels so that I could put it off and on a quad trailer
