The person I bought from says tires were loaded and it says as much on the dealer invoice, but as it was warming up this spring I saw condensation on only the bottom 1/4 or so, so I'm thinking they r not loaded very much, I will have to get one of those fill valves and see how much more can be added.
Tractor supplies carry all is only rated to 1000lb, prob will have to look online for one. For those of you with the tractor and FEL do you just get coal dumped on a tarp and use the FEL to fill the super sacks?
IBC tote tanks run about 100-150 on CL around here , but that up front investment gets me back to the realm of what I'd pay for bagged.
you can check how full your tires are by putting the valve stem at different positions, and as for the tote tanks you have the added weight of the tank and the steel frame
i been buying my bags from link below , tried the closed top bags and there a pain in the ass to load, i shovel off of my dump trailer to fill my bags, do not know what size coal your loading but you could build a funnel loader and hook the bags to the bottom of it to load, and as i stated before unless your doing rice you will not get 2,000lb per bag
have the carry all and its not a fork lift for skids this is a rear fork lift ..http://www.everythingattachments.com/Ki ... -mover.htm
