    I run a lawn care and landscaping firm and I've just invested in 4 plow trucks and 3 salters. I am trying to make sure I am bidding my plow and salt jobs correctly. Any pointers? Also, anyone know of a bulk salt dealer in Indianapolis or close by? I've got a Western V-box 3 yd spreader, a swenson 8 yd, and another large tailgate spreader. In other words, lots of salt needed! Thanks for any help!

    It is kind of late in the year to get a decent price set. Most places like to know ahead of time so they can adjust what they order as well. I am not in your area but I would go along with the other guy and ask around. Maybe look in yellow pages under salt suppliers.

    Good luck with your year hopefully you have something lined up already as most places have already been contacted by a plow company I am sure.
