    I'm looking for some bulk salt to be delivered to my location near Racine, WI.
    I only need about 22 Ton which is part of the problem. I've talked to a few suppliers but they want orders of 100 Ton. Anybody that will do less, wants $150/T plus 19-24% fuel surcharge.
    There has to be somebody cheaper out there:confused:

    Menards. Salt is $4.00 per bag which comes out to $140 per ton. Sounds bad, but bulk is going for $175-$200 per ton here in Milwaukee. So you can leave it in bags and it will be nice and dry, but you have to load them when you go out plowing. Or, cut all the bags open so you can just use a loader to get it in your truck when you have to go plow.
