    Hi Rainair (Bill),
    We like Mag very well. We use it almost exclusively as a pre-storm treatment. It makes the plowing much more effective. It peels up to wet black every time. Ice doesn't form even when someone drives over the lot before we plow. It also makes up to about 1 inch of snow not need plowing. My key customers (2 med centers and the FD HQ) love it. We have been doing it for 5 years now. We get a great price from our supplier, so we charge the customer $2 per gallon delivered. A gallon covers 500 to 800 sq ft, depending on north side or other. We can schedule it 24-48 hrs before the storm. It lasts about 2 weeks on the ground if the storm passess by.payup
