How should I properly care for a piece of metal?



My point is that the newer rack'em bags are a much lighter metal. I would get a few seasons out of the older ones before it needed to be repaired.

You're obviously leaving grass in them on a regular basis, and even then no piece of metal should look like that after 2 months.

The only other way any piece of metal could even possibly resemble that after a few months is if its laying in the snow all winter and even thats a stretch.

Never has grass stored in it. Only under it. It is left out in the elements of PA rain, sun, etc. The new ones are junk! That's why I want input on Grass Packers they don't rust!

this thread should help. It has more detail.

Looks like its just you and I'll second the chemically treated grass in it. Never seen a piece of metal look like that in a couple months.

grass packer

Ive been happy with mine. I run a hustler 52 and it seems to fill just fine. Easy to empty, goes on and off easy enough. Instructions are not the greatest but not too hard to figure out.
Have only used it this season but so far so good.
