    I was just wondering when to start salting, We are getting a ton of rain right now and the temp is dropping tonight.They are calling for snow tomorrow but the ground is not frozen yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Does any of your accounts have "No Tolerance" clauses. The residential I would let them know before you pre salt it will shock them when the bill comes.If you can pre salt anytime you can.To answer your question is however long it takes to run your route before the snow starts flying.:waving:

    Then go for it if your trying to hit all your accounts first then how ever long that takes. Then back to the shop to load up after plowing.
