We have a wholesale co that sells all types of supplies and they have about 50 different types of bags of all sizes and thicknesses. Call the city and find out where they get theirs.

Try ANY janitorial supply and I think you will find what you are looking for. Afterall,these are the same type bags that schools use, for instance, like for their cafeteria barrels and such. You may even want to check some place like Home Depot or Lowe's but check in the janitorial/building maintenance section, not lawn and garden. Good luck with it!

Sams Club (aka Walmart) carries a 55 gal lawn and leaf bag which fits, and is less money than the ones at LS or JThomas.

this should be as good a time as any. we have found that the dealer has more affect over pricing than time of year however it can certainly play a part. also look at serial numbers to make sure you are buying current model both traction unit and deck. sometimes they try to sell overstocks for the same price as current models this should also alow some room for negotiation. we bought 2 toro hydro units in spring 99 and the tration units where 97 units i think we were able to negotiate anther 200 off each unit on already discounted prices. also call around and price match sometimes it is less money to buy tration units form one place and decks from another, or the dealer will match to keep the business.

My experience with buying equipment is that around the end of the year is the best time. One there isn't that much demand for turf equipment with snow on the ground and second, you can tell the dealer if he/she gives you a discount to buy they won't have it in their year end inventory to pay taxes on it.

Just my thought..

If they have a Penn Jersey Dealer in your area they have alot of different size bags. If not Landscaper Supply Has the bags you want in their Catolog.
