    How do you guys protect your grass seed bags? It seems i spill alot after i have an open bag in my truck. And i have torn bags open also. Im thinking of making some kind of dispensing device like a plastic 35 gallon trash can with a spout at the bottom of the can!!???

    A stable handy 2-5 gal. capacity, square units that can stack together or pack together in the back of the truck or trailer... and have a scoop that can pick up several quarts at a time,,, or pours easily into a hopper...
    No one basket for all your eggs... :)

    I keep the fifty pound bags in a 30 gallon steel can, while still in the bag, so there's room for more... precise measurements have never been done... I grab a container that is handy and looks like it will do the job... the bags never go out into the elements...
