What are the options bulk wise? Use Ardens for bagged sawdust, tried bulk envirobed and wasn’t a huge fan, seemed to get a paper maché like layer on cows feet, haven’t managed to find a organic approved bulk sawdust supplier. Fed up of plastic bags and pallets!

Any one used a hopper for filling bedding machine? Could buy sawdust in bulk an then fill hopper with loader, park bedder under hopper and open shoot. Currently using 12 bags a day. Worried the sawdus would bridge in the hopper 🤣

It’s also not that easy to actually see how full it is so you need to keep a tally. It did bridge a fair bit think it needs a hellish steep cone to make it workable.
