    My wife gets some huge bags from the hospital she works at.

    They are not the strongest, but they hold several bags 8-12 from my Exmark Ultravac Bagging System. :)

    Also ton pack liners would be even stronger.

    Not sure where you would get them, though!

    I got a couple of nice big nylon bags from my fert dealer, for free. They are their bulk bags and hold 1 tonne of fert and they are plenty big enough to hold at least 2 hoppers full from a walker.

    I have the same problem... Just purchased some 65 Gallon bags size 50 x 43.5 from a local bag dealer. The bag is just large enough to place over the opening of the hopper. I havn't used them yet (my yards are on weekends) I let you know how they work. The company that I purchased these from said they are able to make or get bigger bags (at a cost).

    go to maybe Home Depot, Staples, or a Sams Club and they should have something that you want

    If you have a Sams membership, they generally have the best prices and selection. At least in this area...

    Go to http://www.landscapermart.com/ and order some of those bags they have for the big green trash cans. They go over the hopper. The item number is 484647.

    I built a three sided box on the front of my trailer with a floor that is on casters. On properties that don't have woods where I can dump, I just back my mower and dump into the enclosure. When full, I remove the stopper that holds the floor and roll the floor off the back of my trailer to dump it. It has worked wonders and saved me a lot of time.
