    Almost so bad you can't laugh..

    $18 per bag of calcium applied "yeah labor included"
    $89 per ton applied, yeah truck and labor included....

    and hourly plowing.. accounts are small, takes more time to go to each one than to actually plow.. so even $150 hr turns into $50-$75 per plow..

    for NJ, thats just not possible, even for the scabs out there with no insurance.

    Those numbers are insane...I wouldn't even wake up for that...and we get 25% of what you Jersey guys get.

    Broncs, I wish we could get bulk for 89/ton.

    Not trying to brag here, but I have been getting calcium chloride for $5 a 50# bag. That doesn't include delivery and fuel to make the 2 hour run to pick it up. All that being said, its not always availible to me, so when it does become availible, I buy all I can. I have really downsized my business in the past couple years to focus on my bread and butter job and have only one small parking lot that requires salt. Usually 2 skids will get me through a winter.

    Really full calcium for $6.05 a 50 lb bag? I've never heard of it so damn cheap. I'll bring our biggest trailer to your Tate to pick skids up at that price! Even safer than salt blends are $8.50-9 each bag.
