Tatty bags

Recommended Posts

Dont really have the room in the yard for a load more ibc cages all year, so got about 40 potato seed bags from a farmer friend. They're meshed on all sides 90x90x170 so decent size.

I've filled a few today and they're more stable than expected for there height. Hoping logs will season well in them and just hang them over the tru k and cut the bottom out.

Cant see any draw backs to them so I've obviously overlooked something, anybody else used them and can enlighten me.

Cheers- andy

I tried some vented bags outside from July through to April filled with processed hardwood.       18 of them stacked 2 high with a fly sheet over the top of half the stacks.    The exposed bags fell to bits when I lifted them with a teleporter,  the top sheeted ones were not to bad but I dare not fill them again.  Product in them seasoned well though.

I'm seeing how this works, old roll of wire and a few cable ties. Took about 5 minutes to make, holds the wood together really well.

I tried that a few years ago with pig net, it worked well but in the summer I just had piles of old wire all over the yard that the brambles grew through and then ended up having g to pull them out with the forklift. If I was tidier it would probably work well.
