    whats the deal with the big bags? if you have a loader why no pile? do you make those bags yourself or something?

    I buy the bags and fill them myself.....they are reusable. I don't have anywhere to put a pile.......

    so after all that loading, what happens if we don't get an event? Do you have to shovel all that back into the bags. I like your truck, how's the truck craft been working out for you?

    well that has not happened.........but if it were to happen......I just remove the spinner, and use the auger to re-fill the bags....then use the loader to move the bags back in the barn......

    keep in mind that I am using this system after manually loading and unloadeing 50lbs bags for the last 4 years with a tailgate spreader........this is so must better and the bulk salt is way cheaper.....
