    I'm going to build my own salt bin for the up coming season.Does anyone have an idea how deep-tall-or wide I should make it?

    Depends on how much salt you expect to use.

    A semi load would be more than 13 yds. A triaxle will hold 18 yds. Just for your info.

    If you were to build it 10'X10' and 10' high that should be plenty. We have 2 bins and they are both 18'X18' and we can fit 40 tons of salt in each time. We put it away with a 325 John Deere. It has a very high lift allowing us to pile it 7' high.
