The lawn bag is great,very useful,but bottom material to thin,and their should be handles on the bottom too make turning the bag over a lot easier
I ordered both the LB5 and the LB10. The LB5 requires you thread a plastic stiffener around the top hem. Recommend you put some tape on the front end to smooth the trip. Otherwise the sharp edges can dig in, especially at folds/corners. The LB10 won't stand open by itself. The instructions suggest folding it down by half. I found a 6 inch fold was plenty (which suggests how it might be made in the future). Not sure why they didn't use the plastic stiffener concept? Can't comment on durability yet, but nylon/plastic strips on the bottom could be an option. Obviously dragging a full bag across gravel or a driveway will accelerate wear. It is a great product. Mowing up leaves fills the mower bag almost instantly. Having a handy dump station saves a lot of trips. Same for raking. Both have extra straps on the sides to help you lift & dump the bags. Nice touch.
Love these bags, they work great except to suggest that the bottom have a double layer of material for longer usefulness. The bags wear remarkably well except the bottom wears out before the rest of the bag.
A.M. Leonard responds: Good feedback; the manufacturer listened to customers, and created #LB22DB which now has the new double-layered bottom.
Yard waste/leaves are high volume material that are difficult to collect and transport. Filling small bags is tedious. These are draggable on grass and simplify things. The larger bags can get heavy (eg wet leaves) so you might consider the AL900 or the 2448LW. Ideally Leonard might match up the cart sizes with the bag sizes. Load height is a big deal to me because I have a steep yard.
My crew had used black nursery buckets for years for bed clean up that were bulky and a pain. I purchased the smaller bags as an experiment and we love them. They are not only hardy but can fold up to free up space in our work cart when not in use. I also like that I can mark each worker's bag to track responsible equipment care. A highly recommended purchase.
We have probably order at least 15 baggs in the last 12 years, and they work well for lawn & landscape debris. We did have one order of (2) baggs, with no side handles. With (1) recently that the side handles were made of very old fabric and tore completely from the bagg. So quality can be a issue. Overall a good purchase.
The lawn bag has cut my yard work in half. Before I would trim dead plants in the spring until my utility tub was full and then I would need to haul it to the compost pile and dump it. I would have to do this many times during the course of an afternoon. Now with the lawn bag I can pile all my cuttings and make one trip to the compost pile. Also when trimming trees it saves me from having to play pick up sticks in the yard. Instead as I trim I can put the branches in the lawn bag. It is very easy to lift, carry and store. My only minor complaint is that the sides tend to fold up until you have some brush in it.
This is a great product, as long as it is not a windy day.
This is an excellent bag and with over an acre of lawn to take care of, this bag has already come in very useful! I bought it for my husband after we saw a neighbor pulling one to his tree line to dump his leaves. My husband can't wait to use it for the leaves in the fall! The material is very tough (good for if there are twigs) and it is also nice and light so you can pull it around your yard. I am very pleased with the purchase.
This is an answer to yard debris not blowing off a tarp. This is great for a windy day or small debris like leaves. It is sturdy and the sides stay up well and the side handles make it easy to transport. Since it is drug around a lot, I wish the bottom was an even heavier fabris so it would wear longer. It is the best option I have found to date.
