    Hi guys,

    I am having the hardest time trying to find a litter bag that you would use to clean up bits of garbage around a site before you cut the grass. We are breaking our back trying to walk around and pick it all up, and the only type I can find is the stupidly small home depot plastic one. We are looking for the type that is made of a tarp like material, that works with an ez grabber. Not one that you would attact to a mower, but a bag with a metal frame on it's opening and a handle.

    Anyone have any websites to look at for this type of product?

    Thanks so much,

    Jon

    Thanks, I checked them out though, and called them, and they don't carry anything like that. They have the ones that attact to your mower, but I am looking for the type that you would walk around with, and flick garbage into.

    Thanks,

    Jon

    How about just using a 5 gallon bucket? Had to use that yesterday at a church. Filled the freaking thing up 3 times. Yes I did charge for the time it took me to p/u trash.

    I am 6'6", and I would break my back with a bucket, I really want the type of bagman type thing that you can sweep into, or rake into, or ez-grab into. A bucket would not work well for my back I don't think.

    Thanks though,

    Jon

    Yeah that would break your back. I am going to look at what befnme has posted a link to. Those bags look real nice.

    Thanks James,

    That is kind of what I am looking for, except that it has a handle that allows you to hold it so it is flat on the ground and sweep into it. The metal runs flat on one side like a small ramp for the litter.
