Bags for coal?

PostBy: winstonsmith On: Thu Sep 09, 2010 5:57 pm

Anyone know where I buy those nylon bags that hold about 50 pounds of coal. A friend is giving me some coal in his basement and I want to bag it up since its going to be a bear to get it out any other way but I am open for suggestions ?
Anyway I need those nylon bags about 100 maybe less. I live near Easton PA but will travel to get them Who sells them? Anyone here got any?

I would look at moving it out in 5 gallon buckets and dumping it onto a tarp in the back of your vehicle or into the back of a truck/trailer. A couple of guys with two buckets each should be able to knock that out pretty quickly!!

I used one bucket as a scoop and a couple of buckets to carry the coal and even though I did not move as much as you are talking about it worked pretty good!!

Check out this previous posting on filling coal bags. I've only needed to get nylon bags for coal once but I found them at the local Farm Store. They held about 50 lbs and where tied off with a metal tie but I bet a nylon zip tie would work and be cheaper and easier to handle.
