    I'm trying to help someone put together an estimating spreadsheet, and need some technical data. Was hoping I could get some first hand experience on the numbers. I realize weather and current conditions effect rate applications but lets assume, standard moderate application rates under less than above average conditions. hohum... in otherwords. for estimating purposes... ideal conditions....

    1. Ca Pelladow - do you apply it strait? or with another product? and about how much coverage do you get with it.

    2. Calcium any other brand/mix and if you could also provide the size bag it is packaged in.

    3. Prewetting Salt? What do you use in your prewet system, and about how much salt do you save by prewetting it? and how muc solution do use/need for that savings?

    4. Finally, I need an acreage idea as to how much snow a 9' and a 10' plow can clear, each, at a 2"-3" depth on an open parking lot, minimal obsticles, little or no vehicles in an hour. I'm thinking somewhere in the ballpart of 1 to 1-1/2 acres.


    I have technical numbers from various manufacturers, but I am finding their ideal situations are in the lab. I'm looking for practical numbers.

    Thanks.
