    Does anyone use a roll tarp for covering there sander? I am using Magic Salt this winter and i want to keep it dry while in the sander because i like the extra weight when plowing during the storm. What do you use for keeping the material in your sander dry? There's a roll tarp kit 5 feet wide on ebay that I am considering purchasing because i think you can cut the tarp down to customize it. My sander is a fisher pro caster. Thank you for any advice

    i went to a shop that makes covers for boats. They made me one out of heavy waterproof like rubber canvas i think. They even put the holes with metal rings. They made it a little loose so it fits when the load is rounded. All for around $100.00 Best thing I have bought in a while.

    did the same thing for mine. cost me about $165 to have it made by a local shop, had it turned around in about 6 hrs. Will outlast a plain tarp by a long long time.

    Fisher makes a nice vinyl cover that fits your Pro -Caster perfectly, I bought one in 2004 and love it.... Keeps stuff nice and dry. I think it was under $200.

    Ended up buying a roll tarp kit and used some heavy duty pond liner that was kicking around, its kind of stiff but will hold up and stay real tight so no water will get in.

    Roll Tarp from messer with the asphault tarp instead of landscape tarp would had been your best bet. I have the rubber canvas deal works out nice easy on easy off.
    Did you have Maine Turf & Greenery Treat your salt pile with magic? What did they run you per ton applied?

    Roll Tarps from Messers are wicked expensive and not worth, got the Buyers one on Ebay instead, works mint. $34 per ton to treat my pile is what i was charged and yes Maine Turf did it. What business are you?
