    Not that I can even find it here in PA but if I do find a dealer is it worth the 10-14 bucks per bag?
    I need to stock up on a couple pallets of 50 lb bags!

    what did you pay for Magic bulk..last year i got a load for about $100 a ton..i wasn't sure if i got ripped or not. However, last January i was the only one down to blacktop. Its well worth the $$ if its cold enough..

    RIPPLE............Magic Salt kicks butt ! Works below freezing and lasts a long time. I used to use all calcium chloride. But a quick melt and the cal. chl. would wash away. The magic would still be there.

    I paid 8 bucks for 50/70 lb. bags of Magic vs. 11 bucks for 75 lbs. of cal chl.

    Check out http.//www.magicsalt.com for a dist. near you.

    Even better call John Parker in Poughkeepsie 845 485 4200
    He can answer all questions and give you prices. Its prob. better to pick up yourself like I do. Shipping can get $pendy !...............geo
