    How big is that loader on top of the pile? Looks to be at least a 5 yd class machine.

    I'd bet on 8-10 yard--maybe a 988, but hard to see that closely. Just based on relative size next to the truck when on the ground. (different picture)

    What was the rate on the salt? I just got 30 ton delivered today, from American. I think it was close to 65 a ton delivered.

    Son, you're buying from the wrong people. I generally deliver it for less than that.

    I was mistaken. It was $70 a ton. I just looked at the billing on that. Still not a bad price. I think it was $58 picked up, and $70 delivered.

    OK, that's more like it. Still lower than around here, but you guys are pretty much *on* a mine.

    :D

    True. That and I had to commit to three hundred ton back late in the summer. When I retire in thirteen years, I'm going to build the largest salt storage facility in the area, and sell salt during storms!
