    Yea we laid some salt not on every account just the ones but enough to make a few $$

    Mustang I have three 6.0's

    550- 106,000 miles I bought it in March, No problems thus far strong running truck.

    350 Dump- 49,000 Bought it new never had a problem but the check engine light is on but its running fine. I think its the EGR or ICP i think its called. Will find out this weekend

    350 Pick up - 125,000 my truck nobody else touches it. Two EGR's over the years. The rust is starting to show due to all the years of salt. Need to make a choice this spring as to keep it and put some money into it and keep it as my daily driver or put it on work duty and buy myself something new :drinkup:

    We have places that are 24 hours, apartments, hotels, and private roads that need to have an eye kept on em.

    I love the 300. Everyone has their preference I ran a S650 for a little while a few weeks ago nice machine but ill keep my 300. only has 420 hours on it. Wish I could use it in the snow but I need to be mobile.

    So you dont use the bobcat in the snow?

    Who do u get your magic salt from? Or do you mix it yourself? I am using it for the first time this year. Have about 30 ton sitting in my yard.

    Everything looks great and ready to go. How do you like the smith spreaders and are they all electric? Thanks

    I don't physically use it is what I am saying. One of the guys runs it.

    I get it in triaxle loads from northeast. I don't have a place to mix it myself or I should since its cheaper. This will be my 3rd year using it. I like it.

    Burkartsplow- All three are electric. I have never had issues with the motors during the season. Have them gone through before the season to make sure they are 100%. This will be my 4th season with my original and its running strong no issues ( Knock on wood)

    two of them have two motors; one 1/4 horse for the spinner and 1/2 horse for the conveyor

    the oldest one has a single 1/2 horse that does both.

    i know the last time i got it at northeast they where $199 i think and the guy down south on the mas border was $130 a ton they could do better on there magic pricing.
    I don't know what they are getting this year have not had a need for it .

    199 is pretty high. I rebuilt a MM1 plow at 3am three years ago with parts bought from NE. I really like how they stay open 24 during weather. I have moved into the city so its more of a stretch for me to get there now.

    Northeast is around $140 a ton delivered. If I was to buy salt and mix it its would be like $120 i figured after labor and fuel etc. I'll let them do the leg work. I figure its not worth it unless your using like 250 tons or more. Last year I used 40.
