Tough Haul

You won't have to tread lightly around storage with this industrial tote, hand-sculpted from scraps of recycled tires in Milwaukee. Ideal for multi-purpose storage, its tough and roomy road rubber frame was born to haul it all--from firewood to fresh-picked fruit. A natural bin for your home or garden, this basket goes the extra mile: All one-of-a-kind pieces are handmade in a job skill workshop by people with disabilities or limiting conditions. Handmade in Wisconsin.

      Comments about RECYCLED TIRE BASKET:

      I bought four of these for a gift for my boyfriend. I looked at the measurements to see the size before I ordered. They are actually a little bigger than I anticipated. They are going to be great in the garage for miscellaneous storage. They are very sturdy, and I like that there are bolts in the bottom to hold the bottom piece of the tire to the sides because it makes it look more rugged. People complained about the baskets not being large enough, but I think if they were made big enough to haul firewood, the basket itself would be too heavy. I am very pleased with this product. The only complaint I have (and it's minor) is that the bottom piece is bolted on in such a way that it doesn't sit flat if nothing is inside the basket. It bulges out a little in the middle and tips to one side. I'm sure that the problem will be fixed once things are placed in it to weigh the basket down.

      To help people who don't understand measurements, I took a picture of a basket next to a spray bottle of Windex so you can see the size. The basket itself reaches to the bottom of the sprayer (The handles are taller than the windex bottle), and the windex bottle can barely be stretched out on the opening of the basket.

      Comments about RECYCLED TIRE BASKET:

      Gift for a man who has everything, is very picky, and utilitarian in tastes. He gardens, fixes motorcycles and is "green-friendly." He loved it. He's going to use it for his tools in the garage. I read the reviews and realized it's smaller. Perfect for kindling or odds-and-ends.

      I paid attention to the size of the basket so I wasn't deceived by the "logs" in the picture. I just thought of them as kindling.

          Comments about RECYCLED TIRE BASKET:

          I bought this for my Dad for Christmas. I read all of the reviews, and while I thought it might be a little small (I never bothered to really look closely at the measurements and then compare to a measuring tape), I knew he'd love it to keep tools or such in in his new workshop he built in the garage. When I got it, I couldn't believe how big it was, considering everyone was complaining that it was too small! Granted, you can't put an entire log in it, but it most certainly has its uses. When he unwrapped it, he even exclaimed, "For firewood!"

            I guess I was a little deceived by the picture of logs of wood in it, so I thought it was larger. When I opened it, my first thought was really, "Wow! That is a LOT smaller than I was expecting." Of course, it smells like tires...cuz it's made of them, which is no biggie. I am still trying to figure out how to use it because of the size.

            For an older person to carry fire wood in, it takes too many trips, It should be a bigger tire! I didn't realize they used a go-cart tire to make this really cool basket.

              my husband loves all things 'car' and i purchased this for him to use in the garage/workshop. he loved the recycled tire theme and it looks good. it is smaller than i expected (but i'm sure the size was in the description). it would work well as a small garbage can, or to hold odds & ends.

                  The product is shown with logs in it. I bought it for my husband to use to carry logs from outside into fireside. When I got it, it is the size to use for a potted plant.

                  Should be made larger to put wood or blankets in.
