(From page 6)...
"These bags are delivered locally, I'm told they hold 1 ton, haven't tried them yet. Th bottom flap opens to allow dumping..."
"These hold 3300# ,a liitle to large . I think I would try the 1 ton bags next time . They are tall when fully extended. My tractor loader arms were almost fully extended when carrying them . But otherwise worked well . The guys at the coal yard loved them they have never seen them before . Dave"
"There are a couple of eBay auctions right now for these type of bags, around $5, 1500 lb or 1 ton."
I think these are great and could work really well for my garage.. Does anybody know an easy place where I can find these? Are they still on ebay?
I did find one site..http://www.tapedirectinc.com/bagsandtubing.htm
EDIT: After a little research I found what these are called (FIBC's)... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIBC
Here is another from page 22..

I use the outside totes up until we have heavy snow, then I will use out of the totes inside. when there empty they will be folded and stored away for next year.
