    Where are Harrisburg area guys getting your bagged bulk salt from? My supplier is saying he can not get any for 3 or more weeks. Wondering where your buying and cost per skid.

    Call David Palmer there and tell him you got his name from Albert at Tru Trac. Ice Enemy is a good product and around $400 a skid. Blue Blazer is there best product but about $100 more a skid. Try Tru Green in Harrisburg to and ask for Dave Acri... Good luck

    I gave David a call and am waiting a return call from him. By Tru Green are you referring to the company that does the lawn fertilizing?

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Yes the Lawn Fertilizer company I got 3 skids off of them this year to try out. But after this post it peaked my interest because we are only down to two skids and spoke with both of them and they are both dried up right now. Americhem is who I always used and surprised I didn't get a call that they were not getting re stocked. Might have another place if you do Cal/Mag blend and will let you know as soon as I hear back tomorrow. Let me know if you find anyone, looks like I might be in the same boat as you!

    so far I have not found anything. Dave said he has a mix but im not sure if I want to pay that much. They all say they have orders out to get some in but it could be weeks.

    John Deere Landscape in Mechanicsburg has Tru Melt right now(I think 1 skid left with more coming in on Monday). Cal/Mag Blend looks okay just picked up two skids. More then I want to pay but was at $12.50 a bag with 56 bags per skid. Good luck and let me know if you find some somewhere else cheaper if i need to stock up.

    Thanks!!

    Lancaster Home Depot had 10 skids of rock salt ice melt for 6.98 bag. I just ran down and got 3 skids of that. That plus what I have on hand I hope will hold me the rest of the season. When I left they still had 7 skids on hand.
