I imagine that alot has to depend on your set up. If ya wanna just try it I would guess if you took some buckets or totes with you they would prolly sell you some that way to ry it out before ya go buyin it by the ton, thats what I did when I wanted to get away from wood. I went to they guys yard up here, and asked him if I could get 2 5 gal buckets of it to try it, atleast in your situation if ya like it, you can always get more, Id call em and ask if you could buy it by 50 or 100 lbs worth to try it out. And if ya like it and it works, you got to go on a scenic drive that was productive, if not ya went on a scenic drive lol, but I would deff try it out that way before purchasing a ton or so. just my 9 cents worth.
