The Macx48 vented bin.
The 217-gallon Macx48 vented bin measures 48 inches by 48 inches, compared to the existing binâs size of 48 inches by 40 inches.
Made of polyethylene foam, the lightweight bins better fit field harvesting machines, and can be stacked 10 high in the warehouse, according to the release.
âWeâve heard from our customers that a larger bin would allow them to avoid the unnecessary produce transfers that add costly, time-consuming steps and risk damaging product,â Ralph Harris, president and chief executive officer, said in the release. âWith the Macx48, producers can all but eliminate handling between the field and market.â
