    Does anyone know where I can get some 50/50 around the Minneapolis area? I am currently getting 80/20 at D-Rock Center in New Brighton and it isn't quite potent enough for some of my accounts. I am located about 40 minutes north of Minneapolis so anything on the north side of the city would be helpful. Thanks

    I think D-Rock is actually a 85/15 mix. Not sure where to get a 50/50 you could have them add some salt to your load.

    Damn, do you know of any place that has a higher salt content than them?

    I think Shifskiy's (spelling?) in Maplewood has 70/30, just off Hwy 36 and McKnight by the old Anchor Block plant.

    Me, I run 100% saltThumbs Up. You could try Gertens or the dreaded Headberg. You could give Midwest a call, I don't know if they even have anything but it's closer.

    I will check them out too. Why is Hedberg dreaded? I haven't really ever dealt with them but I haven't ever heard anything bad about them either

    I won't bad mouth anyone that can't defend themselves, just watch their prices

    Just an FYI for you guys, called Hedberg and its 63 per ton for 50/50. Doesn't sound too bad to me. Its 46 per yard at D-Rock for 85/15 or 80/20 whatever their mix is

    No, I work out of my house right now and I have nowhere to store material, and I also don't yet have a skidloader to do it
