Title is a bit iffy but thought the pics would say it better. 

Fork lift, ibc with top and bottom cut out of bottle, cage cut down a bit and bottle drilled and zip tied  to cage. 

Net pallet wrap, don’t skimp on it and keep it tight. I do a couple of wraps and then lift the forks a bit, repeat until at the top.  

I split with an Oxdale usually and stack the logs neatly for a stable pack. You can just chuck them in and use a bit more wrap. Stack the logs and you can stack the pallets much easier. 

Thought it might inspire someone out there. :)B22BD98B-268A-472C-B0F0-40B571C0A10E.thumb.jpeg.ae4d8d19dc7f9dfc6ce1fa6638c81ca1.jpeg

Neat idea, DIY manual version of the Posch packfix on a slightly smaller scale I guess.

How much does it work out in net wrap per pallet load?

I don't really know sorry, I buy a roll at a time off ebay which is £27.60 inc postage. I would expect better deals on bigger purchases.

If I had to guess I would say £1/pallet. I also use ibc cages and pallets with stock netting nailed to them, this one is the best as far as stacking and also unloading goes in my opinion. 

Everyone has different systems, this is the one that suits me best. It was a video of the packfix that inspired me to come up with this.
