If you want an Iron Horse but the complete package (net, frame, backdrop, hardware), this is the package you should look at: Iron Horse Batting Cage System.
4" Powder-coated Steel Frame
The Iron Horses' strength begins with a 4" steel frame at each end of the cage. The frame comes ready to accept our tension hardware and cable system. This system ensures our KVX200 nets will hang properly without significant sag.
Stability for the Iron Horse is a function of our engineering and design teams' industry-leading innovation. When our cabling system is tightened, the top of the cage will fall inwards, and the bottom will kick out away from the tension. We combat this movement with an innovative back-bracing system. Unlike a typical brace that extends out from the cage, our system runs parallel toward the center to create a stable four-point platform while saving you space.
Note: Please do not attach the lower corners of the vinyl backdrop tight to the net. Doing so will cause the net to tear from heightened wear. We recommend 6" of slack with twine or bungee loops.
This package includes everything you'll need for a complete installation except concrete.
Concrete Free: The Iron Horse is easy to install using our 18" Heavy Duty Ground Stakes. No holes, cement, or special tools are required, provided your soil conditions are suitable. Stakes will not have sufficient holding power in the sand, fresh fill, or overly saturated ground.
Concrete: This batting cage can be securely installed using j-bolts for anchoring into concrete.
The size of the footprint is different from the net size. This cage's frame is larger than the net size. If you choose a net size of 12ft wide, your footprint will be 14ft 5in wide. If you select a net size of 14ft wide, the footprint will be 16ft 5in wide. For the length, add 5ft to the net size.
Example: A 12ft W x 55ft L net size will have a 14ft 5in W x 60ft L total footprint.
Note: This item is shipped on a pallet that weighs over 1,000 lbs. Each Iron Horse is sent with a bottle of matching touch-up paint to address blemishes that may occur in transit.
