Firewood bags and a firewood bagger?
« on: May 10, 2015, 06:54:45 AM »
I've been trying to look all over for any firewood bags or a firewood bagger. I emailed a few companies but no one seems to email back. I just need those disposable mesh firewood bags that are a good size. Bigger than gas station mesh bags. I even looked around for mesh vegetable bags but the only place that sells them is in the UK. I was looking for a supplier that would be closer.

I am also interested in a firewood bagger if it's possible to find one in north america.

Anyone have any ideas or alternatives by chance?

Welcome to the Forestry Forum.

You could help out by putting your location in your profile... then it will give others a general idea from where you are asking. 

What is a firewood bagger? Maybe some general description of what you are seeking, and what the plan is will help.

 I looked for some several years ago and did not have any luck. You can get them from Europe but you have to buy a pallet at a time. When I was over  in Germany they would give them to you if you wanted them. They use them for everything. The ones I saw in use were full of gravel and other ones had cement blocks in them. Good Luck on your search

I worked for a guy that had a veggie stand business. He had mesh onions bags that he got somewheres. I think they held 30 pounds of onions.

I use "Bag Supplies Canada", parent company is in the UK. I bag fire wood in orange onion bags holding about 22 lbs of soft maple for camp fires. I cut it 14" in length. They are in Stratford, Ontario at WWW.bagsupplies.com. About .26c Canadian per orange onion bag in lots of a 1000. They also have prettier bags in green with "Traditional Firewood" printed on them for .34c. If you p/u lots of less than 1000 are available. Best price I have found anywhere.

Use shrink wrap and a firewood bundler. Winds up costing about 6 cents to produce each bundle and if you get good at it you can do over 100 with a two person crew

I use this company as well, I bought the Mosquito Vented Bag here http://bagsupplies.ca/index.php?page=ventedlogbags&loc=canada// and use the forks on my FEL to stack on pallets so that I can move them around. I just ordered some Mosquito Vented Cart Bag here http://bagsupplies.ca/index.php?page=ventedbarrowbags&loc=canada// to give them a try, can stack 4 per pallet and might be easier to manage.

I've used these bags I like them I'm wanting to do all my wood with these. I want to experiment with different length wood to see how much the will hold.
