I saw an LCO using one of these the other day. Anyone know where to get them or who makes them? This thing was huge.

Go to your fert dealer and ask for one of their old bulk fert bags. I got 2 for free from my fert dealer. They are very big, have 4 convienent handles, extremly durable (made from nylon I think) and are rated for up to 1000lbs of load.

How do you use those large bags? Are you filling them with leaves, dragging them to the truck (or trailer) and dumping them? What advantage is using the bag over laying down an 8X10 tarp, rake (or blow) leaves on, gather up the corners, pick it up, throw it over your shoulder and take to truck (or trailer)? The large bag seem cumbersome and difficult to dump.

But, maybe I'm missing something. I've been intrigued with them for a couple of years after seeing others make posts about using them, but I'm baffled why I would not continue to use 8X10 tarps. Anybody....?

The Bags Are Pretty Large, You Can Just Drag Them , As Apposed To Throwing Over Your Back, And Big Tarps Loaded Don't Last A Few Pulls On Rough Terrain .

I like the bags for windy days. It keeps everything where you put it. If I try and use tarps, the wind carries the leaves away.
