    Any feed mill should have tons of those bags laying around, they just throw them away too so I'm sure theyd give them to you for free

    There are different sizes.
    The 4x4 ones hold roughly 48 old style 2 piece GHG
    We also have taller ones as well that hold around 72 of them.
    Im guessing with the smaller 1 piece GHG you could hold about 15-20% more in each one.
    Hope that helps

    The bags are easy. Hauling said bags isn't. Sled has to be bigger than I own.

    Plastic truck bed liner works great. Easy to find cheap or free. They don't take up much trailer space either if u put them down, then drive atv into it

    Any place that sells aggregate or sand should have bulk bags, I used to get them for free from brick masons on constructions sites they use them to transport large quantities of sand.

    What are large grain bags, one ton tote sacks? we get fertilizer in them all of the time, most end up in the dumpster after use. If you go that route, make sure that the bags were just used for N,P,K and not control products. Your deeks will end up smelling like 2,4-d.

    If you go to your local or closest grain elevator they should also have new ones they will sell. Ask for the 2200 lb ones. They should be around 10-12 bucks each. 48" x 48" is around standard width & depth 50" to 60" height.

    We can get 90 or so snow fullbodies in each one.

    try to find em with the top cover with drawstring also. Saves you a lot of trouble. [​IMG]

    I have a buddy that seels seed for Agventure.....he always has bulk bags at our local farm supply store to be given away or else a lot of times he said they pitch em'. Try checking with a seed salesman close to your area and see if he has any available.
