Difficult to assemble
Very hard to assemble, takes a hammer, rubber mallet, and 2x2 board. Finished crate seems very solid.
Not bad but is Kuhl listening?
So it's apparent after the abundance of feedback that we NEED instructions. I found the plastic too sharp edged to work on without gloves, and the rigid structure doesn't allow for taking any warping out which was the case for me. I would take it from not bad to outstanding if these issues were addressed!
Instructions would help
The unit is good. Instructions for assembly would be VERY helpful as 2 of the corners need to be on the door end. You cannot tell until you build it. Clamps and a rubber mallet allowed it to go together quickly other than the 2 corners I guessed wrong. ended up using a chop saw to trim the 2 tabs to the correct length on the top. My 6 chickens traveled well in it.
A Qualified Excellent
I echo Joe's comments. A bit difficult to assemble. Used a "dead blow" hammer and wood block. Didn't have to chisel or file. The tabs that hold it together are very sturdy. Bought one of these in March 2012. Have used extensively. Getting a second due to expanded chicken herd.
The nice thing is: once it's assembled, it is NOT going to fall apart or break, unless you run over it or some other foolishness. And it is easy to hose out/ scrub out/ bleach/ clean. No rot or porous surfaces to worry about.
Five stars other than assembly difficulty.
Extreme patience required
Hammer, wooden block, chisel, file needed for assembly. Top & bottom were bowed as if an elephant had sat on them making for a challenging afternoon. Once assembled, however, pat yourself on the back and have a cold one.
