I'm split. I used to buy 40 pound bales at a less than great price. Having a clydesdale (unlike your average customer) the 40 pound bales go quick. Not convenient. Now I've been buying 110-120 pound bales and it's great! But once my husband deploys again with the military, I am going to be OUT of luck! No upper body strength here! :P

40# bales would be awesome as long as they're sold by actual weight/ton

I'm really split. The larger bales are harder to carry, but as several other people commented, it means less trips and less handling... although you could probably handle a 40 pound bale in each hand. If I was putting up a large load, I think I'd prefer the smaller bales. I can't lift our 60lb bales up past my shoulder height to stack, at least not for long.
