SO.... how much does a bag of sand weigh?

lol  lol

I bought sand in sealed bags. I weighed the bags when I bought them 20kg each.

bought 30 = 600kg

It has been cold wet and miserable here since I bought the sand.

took a couple of bags out to weigh them again and they are now 30kg each!

so I have potentially been towing 900kg of ballast around.


Having tried a 600L IBC and now tried sand, think I am going have to go to plan C

To be fair, it was cold wet and miserable there BEFORE you bought the sand.  smile

What's wrong with an IBC? I guess there is the issue of securing it...

What's plan C  lol

IBC is impossible to secure in a closed box trailer, it has a high centre of gravity and a 10cm ullage which means the contents will slop around causing the whole lot to roll over as you go around a bend!

Re: SO.... how much does a bag of sand weigh?

Think I said some time ago about weight gain.

Use bricks or blocks.

The DSA have prescribed what is permitted and what is not permitted, bricks or blocks are not on their list.

Bagged aggregates in individually weight marked bags, or a 600 or 1000 litre IBC

Re: SO.... how much does a bag of sand weigh?

Hi
Bagged aggregates in individually weight marked bagsNot available commercially, or a 600 or 1000 litre IBC Not fitted with baffles so liable to surging of liquid and small box trailer such as are used by most B+E trainers don't have floor mounted tie downs/clamps to suit IBCs

Is the DSA fit for purpose, if they haven't researched this?????
