    These are what I use for grass, brush and other ****. I buy them used at a feed supply place. Last bunch I paid $5 per bag. They are bigger than the Walker bags but you can cut them down to whatever size you like. We also use them for top soil.

    They will ship to any where UPS goes, and the bags are tough. Make sure if you call that you tell them I sent you. The ones that Walker sells are weak. The threads that hold the handles on break pretty soon. PITA. The aftermarket ones they sell have strong threads, and hold up well. I would bet you could use one for 5 years or longer if it did not blow out of the truck or get a hole melted into it by a hot muffler. (Now how would I know that?) These guys aren't the cheapest around but the best I have found.

    What do they charge for the bags? and are there different sizes, or one that you know works well if there are?

    Thanks...

    As far as I know it is just a Walker dump bag. Unless they have a size for the 7 bu. and another for the 9 bu. hopper.
    As for price I think the last time I bought one after letting the old one blow off the truck, they were like $80. But like I said they are made out of extremely durable canvass. Very well made.
