    I made them, cut up the stock plastic ones and added my stickers, very good protection.

    Do you have any idea how much salt the shpe 2250 is holding? We have a new one this season as well. I'm thinking it holds just north of 2 ton.

    I would say that 2 tons or slightly over is very realistic. I don't think the shpe 2000 holds 2 tons, maybe 1.5 and the bigger one has considerably more room.

    Unfortunately without a scale there is no way to know

    Those grey wheel wells look like a turd in the punch bowl.

    PA, i got a quick question for you. Last season i dumped 15 tons of salt at one of my commercials to load onsite since my tractor was there for sidewalks and stacking snow... I had a horrible time with the salt freezing and chunking up. What i did was put two layers of tarp underneath to avoid moisture from the bottom, and then two tarps ontop. The problem i was seeing was the entire perimeter of the salt pile was completely rock hard. I wasted probably 3 tons of salt that we had to haul off in March as one big chunk after it warmed up.

    What do you do to avoid this?

    Thank you, For whatever reason when I edited the video in youtube with "image stabilization" it removed the flashes, I can assure you it flashes regularly.

    But my father who drives the truck, said the same thing, and you would think he'd know better.... :dizzy:

    Great question and right now I have the same problem , although my pile has a 6" frozen crust on it. The reason is that the salt came very wet (first time this has happened to me In 4 years).

    I've never had a problem before, but the salt is always super dry, so dry that the salt dust just is everywhere. Was the salt dry when it was dumped?
