they could've used you up here in MN/ND a few years back for the 2009 Red River flood. 5 million+ sandbags for Fargo-Moorhead and surrounding areas!

Fargo alone made 1.5 million this spring and not a single one saw water so we were told. Even most of the clay dikes and Hesco barriers didn't hardly or had no water touching them.

How many per hour can it do?

Are you going to be using it to fill bags with money after you eliminate your competition? lol
Wish you nothing but the best Jacob. Good to see young guys not scared of working hard.
