    Are you near any seed companies??
    I have found some 40 bushel bags made from heavy geo textile material with heavy woven handles that soybeans, corn, and other ag seeds is delivered in. There is a funnel flume on the bottom but all you have to do is sew the thing shut. The problem is..........wet leaves makes for a back ache as the things will haul 2-3 hundred pounds of leaves.
    For leaf season in small areas, I use kid pools, with a tie rope attached on one side. I don't care what all the other lco's say as we transport 2 pools around with the equipment, as I see them try to hand lift a already heavy can over the trailer.
