    thanks...I'll lokk at that again. We have local trucking companies that buy and deliver but the work is thats its getting tight. WE'll see on that. WE went through our first 24 tons already almost and maybe 8 tons of salt/sand mix. Time to start looking again.
    I saw some on craigslist earlier in the year to from a guy from Mankato, he had quite a bit of salt but most of it was stained real bad with coal dust.

    To the guys credit in Mankato, he was wanting $80 a ton for the stained stuff and upper $140's for clean.
    I'll look at the DM list and see. I won't pay $190 though. And maybe the local truckers can get it anyways. Was just seeing if there was a deal to be had. :rolleyes:

    Try contacting Eilen & sons out of Hampton MN, they haul alot of salt. Or maybe dakota bulk in south st.paul they might be able to help you out.

    That would be a foolish move to make mid season. I'd have to re-tool everything.

    Mn salt

    :mad:I thought you were out! I have no #s I thought if you intrested you could do a little work yourself, maybe 411 or a Twin Cities phone book. And if you still have a line I would suggest staying with it. Because everyone is starting to run low and looking around for more.

    ( :mad: ) Whats this all about? I did find the numbers right away you dick. In fact, I was going to post again to say I got it but figured no big deal. Didn't think I'd make you so upset.
    Just started the thread to create some chatter and see whats availble and see if I could learn anything.
