    I have been using Snow Slicer for 5 years, great product. You will use 30-40% less and the salt will not have any chunks than a quarter and works down to a lower temperature. Love itpurplebou

    No problems, just be careful not to use too much. It will just be a little trial and error for how much to use.

    Rule of thumb I give to guys new to Slicer---turn your spreader down. ALL the way. Really.

    Apply it as such and observe the results. Increase rate as needed, but you'll find it easier to start low and add, versus over applying.

    Pro slicer is all I'm going to use on sidewalks from now on! The consistancy of it is great, but like everyone says, control the amounts used. It works much faster then halite and definetly less needed!
