Paonia’s custom bulk bag tote is filled with 27 cu ft of soil. This is approximately 1/3 of a pallet of bags. The 1 yd. tote weighs 400 – 800 lbs, typically 500lbs for the Bomb, but it all depends on the product and moisture content. With our 1 yd tote 2-3 people can slide it on smooth surfaces and a small pickup can easily haul 1-2 of them. If you have equipment like a tractor, forklift, or hoist there are built-in lifting straps. In the bottom panel is a chute that can be opened to dispense material into beds or pots.
If you need more than 4 or 5 bags Paonia product, the totes will be an excellent option! You essentially save $3 per cubic foot if you choose to order a tote bag Rick’s selection of Paonia soil Co. totes compared to ordering the same amount in Paonia soil bags! Likewise, the totes reusable! There will be an $18 refundable deposit for the totes. Can’t use 27 cubic feet of soil? Split with your neighbors!
