    I am thinking of adding sanding to my commercial customers and was wondering what price are you guys paying for sand and is it worth it? I have heard from two different people that it is very lucrative. How much should I look at paying for the yard and what is the approximate charge to apply per yard. I have seen some larger companies around my neck of the woods and are affering sanding at $90 per yard. Also, would you reccommend skid steer or truck to apply this? Thanks.
