    Hey guys, Was planning on buying a tornado for my truck, But I do not have a second skid or loader. Do I just buy sand from the local yard during buisness hrs? Is there another economical way I can go about loading this thing without having to purchase another loader, So that I can operate through the night?

    Are you spreading straight sand? If you load early I pretty sure it will be frozen before you use it. Also if that is a plow/sand truck you are using it will pack like crazy and you might not be able to spread it.

    I was planning on spreading pickled sand, or salt but I haven't found a local source that just stocks it and sells it. I have found pickled sand at $60 a cubic yard.
