Working a Showmanship pattern somewhere in the great Northeast...
Silly Question? How many shavings bales fit in a pickup?
Hoping for a quick answer from someone who uses shavings (switched to pelleted years ago myself)...I need to pick up 30 bales of shavings tonight and not sure if they will all fit in an 8' bed pick up or if I need to hook up the trailer. They are the smaller plastic wraped bales, not the larger paper wrapped...
Standing the bags on end, will allow more on the floor layer, than laying them on their sides. I am pretty sure I got about 20 in my little truck, Nissan Frontier. You can always throw a rope across the second layer, to hold them down while hauling. Like stacking hay bales!
A lot depends upon what you are doing after you load these shaving bags: if you are going to go on the Interstate, I would lash down the top layer(s) and the rest of the load. If you are doing the 5 mile backroad trip back from the Agway, then you probably would not need quite so much securing of your load. Obviously, like hay, you can go further safely with less of a load, or more of a load over a shorter, less Interstate-like route.
