    u gotta lower that trigger! i was out today and i dont think it was even 2" but i didnt get one complaint. i have two smaller commercial and the rest residential... i think people appreciate a nice clean drive when they get home or go to leave for work, whether its 1 1/2 or whatever... my trig. is 2 for all so id suggest lowering yours but thats JMO.... menards and sams have salt for under 5 a bag... friend of mine paid 450 at sams last month he bought 4 skids.. anyone else know where to get some good bag salt for a decent price?

    Russo's haha I wont even comment. They are actually bagging the bulk that they are bringing in. I no longer use them for bulk and only for bagged when in a pinch. Great for landscape products for winter .....:nono::nono:
