    Was going to look at getting a plow and spreader for the winter to do some sub contracting. I own a 2007 F350 diesel. I'm not looking to go the cheapest there is, but would just like some options.

    I suppose as much as needed of me. Is there a certain type of salt that I need to use for residential drive-ways?

    Depending on where you sub a salt spreader might not even be needed. The larger and more established companies will most likely have larger salt trucks. I would hold off on the spreader until you find out if you need it or not.
