    I bought mine last year from Home Depot and Lowes 50 pound bags 2.98 a bag. I would buy a pallet at a time and have them load it in my truck. These stores are in Pontaic Mi.

    I started out with a snowex 1075 last year.I just sign a big account,now I need to sell it and buy a vbox. The 1075 is good for lots like 20-30 spaces after that you will be getting out and reloading the spreader. I think the 1075 hold 600-700 pounds of salt.I bought it in Jan last year will let it go for 1000.00. It cost me 1600.00

    Regards Mike
