    Gonna go try some magic have been researching here on plowsite. Some say its great a few say its no different than regular salt. well anyway just wondering, it is much much cheaper to buy bulk magic salt, and i have a fisher1000 tailgate sreader,swing away mount, Can i use bulk magic instead of bag magic in my tailgate spreader?

    I recently tried the magic in bulk without very good results. I had two loads of it freeze solid in the back of my truck, It was totally covered by my tonneau cover. It was fine for the first few days but then it turned solid, we had to get it out with picks and hammers. I will say my local distributor was very helpful and even helped me chip out the first load. I will go back to bagged salt for now.

    thanks, but hate to here that 1 ton bulk 78.00 or 1ton bagged 50# bags 408.00. Wonder if i could use my bagged salt spray with magic in the hopper while loading salt. I'm in a pickle here, temps in the teens and lots of slush and water freezing and cant get calcium here in wv.
