    I assume you have a fork lift and a larger tank. Lift the solid bin above the tank, and place a steam lance in from the top. You should then be able to disolve the sugar and further dilute it in the tank below. The steam lance could be a project , but think like McIver.

    Where is MP? What I am not clear on is what size the bags are (2200 # per bag?) and what the bags are made from (leak proof?).

    Cheap new 16' above ground pool not too far from you.

    How to drop it in without ruining the liner is another question.

    He can place the bag of sugar on top of the liner and then put the pool up but he is going to get a bunch of critters going after the sugar water. Probably drown a lot of his bees in the mix too.

    I guess I'll pass on the swimming pools and dynamite. The company just gave me 3 tons of loose sugar for free, and say I'm going to get sick of them calling me with more. I say, Bring it on!

    It is not true that you cannot teach an old dog new tricks.
    They can learn them, they just can't do them.

    OK I will bite. Why is the company having a hard time giving away sugar. Even end processes can be used for road salt.

    Check out the railroad sidings between Essex Junction and the RR bridge over the Winooski.

    My dog yes, my morels maybe, my sugar never.

    A couple of thoughts come to mind. If you do not own a tractor with a bucket you can borrow one... Lift sugar bags as high as they will go and dump them... Scoop up busted up sugar. Or rent a round bale grinder at your local Agway and place bags in it and grind.

    Aww Michael you shouldn't have given up the morels so easy.....not all of us live far and away.....I spend a lot of time along the winoski......I love morels.....and the best spot I knew has been developed......this is almost a better tip than where your finding free sugar.

    But don't worry, I won't be too greedy come the season.

    Largest consumer of sugar in MP's area would be the Unilever plant (aka Ben and Jerry's) In the quantities they handle they are bound to have spillage and contamination which is what I would guess Mike is getting for free.

    Forget where he's getting the sugar from, I want to know where his "ho room" is.
