    GEEZ, I gotta move. We charge $$250 ton on those where it's per ton, we have some where it's per app that end up being closer to 350 ton when the season is averaged out, but 400 a ton ? Not around here for more than one season, people aren't stupid.

    How do you charge per hour for salting? I can put down a ton of salt in 10 min. I can't understand why you don't charge per application. When it's all said and done we invoice 350.00 to 400.00 per ton of treated salt.

    North central Illinois about 10 minutes average. I bill per app with no need to keep track of pounds used and no questions from any customers about how many pounds I spread. Average price per ton $325-400
