For all of you price conscious buyers out there we’ve created a lighter duty GM-5131 compatible rigid wire container, let’s call it the “MD-5131” for Medium Duty. It still has the 4,000 LBS capacity and is still stackable with your existing authentic GM-5131 rigid wire baskets. We’ve just made some design changes.
In an effort to reduce cost we’ve lightened the gauge of steel on some of the basket components. Particularly removing double reinforcement wires changing from “single wire, double wire, single wire” mesh side panels to just 2″ x 2″ single wire mesh side panels. We’ve gone with a 12 GA steel J-Channels for 3 upper cross rails. We went with 3/8″ x 2″ flat bar runners on all 4 sides and 2″ high x 10 GA kickplate.
Some customers don’t need the robust construction of the authentic GM-5131. The authentic GM-5131 is built like a tank – virtually indestructible. The medium duty 5131 is still a very strong rigid wire container without being over built – for cost savings.
