    wondering if you guys use or heard of bulk bags ? there bags you can fill up with salt with a draw cord and just hang them over your spreader and pull the cord. i guess they hold like a yard or so of salt thanks.

    We use them all the time. They work well but you have to be careful not to load them beyond what you can lift that high

    We use a gantry arm attached to the fork lift

    I have found used ones at feed stores and waste management company's. I know bottle depots and sandblasting company's use them as well. They are pretty handy. I filled my v-box spreader with salt, then held the bags around the chute and filled them. It took about 45 minutes and I filled 5 and a half bags.
