Round bale super tarps
Instead of individual grommets, the tarps now come with built-in sleeves into which you thread lengths of metal pipe. "This new system is much more effective in securing the tarps against wind, and it provides the fastest, easiest tie down system on the market. You can tie down the pipe-threaded sleeves with rope, or by hanging old tires, weighted with sand, onto the pipes."
Super Tarps are made of high tensile woven fabric for flexibilty and strength. They're guaranteed against ultra violet light and rotting and, according to Johnson, will last 5 to 10 years if secured properly. They're silver on the outside to reflect sun rays and black on the inside to prevent greenhousing A 25 by 35 ft. tarp covers 54 5-by-4 bales (stacked in a 3-2-1 pyramid) and retails for $269 (U.S.). A 20 by 36 tarp covers 54 4 by-4 bales and sells for $210. Other size tarps are available for covering 54 bales measuring 4.5-by-4 ft., 6-by-5, and 5.5-by-4 ft. Dealers-distributors wanted.
