    There are 1.16 liquid gallons per 1 dry gallon
    and there are 8 dry gallons per 1 bushel
    so there would be 8(9 bushels) to get you the size bag you need or 72 gallon bags

    Hope this helps.

    I got awesome dump bags for my walker from my fert dealer. Their bulk fert comes in 1000kg (2200 lb) nylon bags. Cheap too, $10. Could try there.

    walker, glad we only use the bags once in awhile but we also use the bulk canvas bags from a local fertilizer company. Make sure you know what was in them before some contain seed that has been treated and is toxic.
    We did a lawn a week ago that had 24 dumps using our 9.5 bushel bin. Rural property that we could dump in the field and they cultivated it under. We do it 4 or 5 times each year when it gets out of control and looks like a hay field.

    I used to use 2 39 gallon bags, for the 9.5 bushel

    I thought you were using your vacuum for clippings?
