    Hi guys just wondering if anyone has opted to use a poly grain bin to store salt before. I was thinking that if you can keep the salt dry you shouldnt have to much to worry about it freezing up. Also I was thinking an auger attachment would be a good fit as well for loading as well. What do you guys think? Thanks

    I have never tried it but I think it will freeze anyway. Especially in the auger. Loading with an auger will be slow.

    It won't work, the salt will not flow well enough.

    augers do work, they are slow.
