    I've never done any work with liquid de-icing, but I'm very interested in finding out how it works in comparison to rock salt when used on surfaces like sidewalks and steps???

    Also, how do the appicator systems work?

    Are these systems available complete or do you guys think this could be frankensteined together with the right components?

    Thanks

    Well first off, do a search for this, you will have plenty to read....

    But we have a 250 gal tank in the back of a f-150 with a 3 GPM pump hooked to a 50ft hose on a hose reel with just a nozzel on the end. Our guys use them for stairs and places our Kubotas cant get, they love it and it works great.
