    New to the sire. I've been plowing for 12 years and decided to get into this side of the business. Do you guys have a place to buy bulk salt that has been treated to work to -22 degrees? Thanks for any contacts!

    That's sort of a loaded question. Everyone's treated bulk product works to at least -87°...just ask them!

    :laughing:




    OK, really, though--there are a handful of good (some excellent) treated bulk products out there...Slicer, Magic, Clearlane, Thundermelt; Geomelt, Thawrox--just to name a few. Where in IA are you situated? That will probably help narrow it down...

    Cedar Falls, Iowa. I don't have a place to store bulk. Looking for bulk on a pallet. Best I can do is $200.00 picked up.

    No problem. SO, to clarify, are you looking for a super sack (1 ton) then?

    At our supplier, he super sacks are same price per pound as bagged. Only pro or con is you can load it into a big spreader in one shot. But if you have a big spreader and a loader, you can use bulk treated rock salt for 1/5th the price. Not exactly apples to apples but a big price diff.
