    Well we might be using mostly bulk this year... bagged is rediculous already.

    Got prices of $5.15 to 5.49 a bag and thats either by skid w/minimum amount or truck load, sucks...

    no bulk prices yet, dont know what theyre waiting for.

    Last year we paid between 3.79 to 5.49... 5.49 was when we were running out end of Feb though with no baggage commitment :/

    It is cheap, but I've had a good expierience so far, his qoute for the season stood last season, so I think it will again. Make sure if you guys call him you tell him I referred you...............

    Yeah we all used alot of salt last winter....i ran out in January.....had to go down to south jersey to get more. They really did not have much of a winter down there up to that point...so salt was available. Im going bag again this winter........have a pallet left over.....going to get more soon.

    Kind of Ice Melt

    What kind of Ice melt were you using was it 100% Sodium Chloride or a Blend at that price?

    Either he's getting a blend at a good price or he's overpaying for straight salt. But as we all know prices vary depending on volume, maybe he only runs through 10-15 pallets a season..............

    Consistant mixes are running around 5/bag with a trailer full. I can get some for 4/bg but it is pretty nasty mixes. Mostly dust with a few larger pieces. The cheaper is harder to regulate out the spreader, the better stuff is butter and you can keep it in the spreader for a few hours before it binds.
