They also didnt last as long as I would like but I have some upgrades that should help. The main problem was I that I used staples to hold the lower basket together and they were too small to hold up to the abuse. So the baskets kept falling off.
All you need is a set of tire chains. I got most of mine from yard sales for cheap but they are all over craigslist for less than $30 a set. Then you need a 5' piece of pipe. I used electrical conduit. I made the top cross out of 1"x3" pine, but I would use 2"x4" pressure treated lumber now. Then you need some form of basket for the bottom. Mine were all 1"x1" screen on another pine cross. I will make a video of how to build one when I get the chance. I need to make a new one, I gave all the old ones away.
Anyways Its nice to see that the pictures are still around. Where did you get that photo?

You'll have to ask Prerube but I'm not sure he still logs on here. I guess he just used google image search.

Don't know if this is at all helpful, but here's an old basket thread. http://www.dgcoursereview.com/forums...highlight=tire

Although, if you're asking where the pic of your basket came from, sorry about that. Reading comprehension not so good right now.

Creating tone poles or buying targets like a DG Nomad would probably be even cheaper and less time comsuming.
