Bulk salt in central Minnesota

    Minnesota people, I was wondering who you are getting your bulk salt from? I have been getting it from US Salt in the past and have been using a 50/50 mix.. I have it hauled from the Cities to Willmar MN and that gets expensive. I was thinking about trying clearlane or IBGmagicsalt but the magic salt guy in Minnesota just sells liquid and Cargill keeps sending me a quote for just salt not clearlane. I would like to get out of having sand in my mix. Is there anyone else that sells a treated salt in Minnesota?

    Thank you.

    I started running it exclusively this past season. Spreading less material, better/faster results, happier customers!

    Does ClearLane freeze if you leave it in your spreader?

    No US Salt isnt out of treated. Call ahead and we will mix it for you. Clearlane is gone to the general public. If it wasn't for US Salt Northern wouldnt have any for the last month. Us Salt doesnt ever run out. thanks

    That's great news! Do you have the ability to put your products into 2000lb totes?
