    While it will vary somewhat from market to market I can tell you what it sells for in my area. 50 lb bags of magic will be about 12.00 per bag with pallet and multi pallet discounts. Bulk salt will be in the 8.00 per ton range coated.

    The cost of magic is 3.00 per gallon with 8 gallons per ton needed. So the cost would be about 25.00 per ton on top of the cost of the salt. Salt will run about 50-60 a ton. So your final cost will be about 75-85 a ton for magic coated salt. The other trick is to find someone in your area that will spray your pile of salt. My bet is that you will have to have at least a 25 ton minimum. Even with 300 units, I doubt you would use much more than 25 tons for the season.
    So you may be better off buying totes from John Parker at Taconic Maint. and spraying the pile yourself.

    I would like to get my hands on a drum of the magic syrup but there isn't any dealers around me ( N.W. Ohio ) and I really don't want to drive to N.Y. just to get it. and shipping a drum would cost alot:(
