I get a free ton on 100# bags of rice coal.
Going to do bags for the first year and see how I like that.
But the rest will be 50# bags.
How big of a area should expect 4 ton to take up?
No higher then 5 feet.
You must have been at Warners the same time I was Shawn.
It all depends on whether "said" bags were tied with a
millers knot and or if they are the less expensive woven polyester open mouth sacks
with the sewn base base.
If they were tied with a millers knot, know that they will be very unweildy
and hard to stack at first BECAUSE the open mouth bag has
been tied in the center and the bag cannot settle flat due to the
pinching and tying of the bag at the center. the same goes for the
fifty pound bags if they are tied also.
You will have to compromise and stand them up one bag high which will be
much less aggravating and reduce the chance of spillage and bag breakage.
plan on at least 9 by 9 feet for every ton, one bag high with the bags stored vertical.
