    Hi! Welcome to plow site. :waving:

    What part of Ellicott City are you from. We do a bunch of stuff around there and base our snow operations right off of Illchester.

    As far as tailgates go, I bought a Buyers 600# last year and it worked great. I got it from Tractor Supply for around $750-850 (I can't remember exactly). We get our bagged salt and mag from Hartings on Hammonds Ferry road in Lansdowne and our Bulk from Harvey Salt Co. in Baltimore. I haven't been able to beat Hartings price on mag pellets.

    Also, let me know if you are looking to do any sub work. I could still use a couple of subs for some stuff I have in the area.

    Again, Welcome, it's nice to have some more Maryland folks on board!

    Have you tried SOuthern States in Sykesville? I know they have good prices on rock salt - around $5.00/bag. Last time I checked, they had good prices on calcium chloride, too. Oh yea, welcome to the site.
