How much wood does a 1m3 log bag hold?

Recommended Posts

Picked up some vented bags and thought it would be interesting to see how much they hold. The cube was first measured in an IBC tank and loaded to the 1000 litre mark ie 1m3. Then loaded up the net from this.

 

First picture is the tank with a generous cube. Second is the net loaded and third is the net after a bit of a bounce.

 

Sorry don't have the answer to the title but it's a fair bit more than a cubic meter.

Don't stretch it like in pic just let the loops bite as bag becomes piled full just lift gently and it will level after drying you may need to add a few if your going multiple 100 bags this is where it counts

Was about to say they look like MCA bags. I have put a full ibc level filled bounced load into one and still comes up so short. Those bags probably hold something more like 1.4 cubic meters

Yep MC Kingstone from recomend on here but guess they are not so great. Only got 10 as an experiment but will be sticking with crates as bag handling is proving a pain with a wee tractor.
