    Looks great!

    Nice set up for sure! What brand is that belt loader? We stacked all of ours (very similar bin to yours) with our loader, would love a belt stacker...

    Thanks!

    That belt loader is Adams brand, we added the stainless steal to the top of the hopper so we can dump 3 yards of salt at a time on the belt. We made the black hood on the end of it to hold the spray tips we made

    I think you should go in to the portable salt treating machine building business, in your spare time. I'd take a unit or two.

    I've added on to this twice and have about $5k into it.
    I can get a little over 200 tons in it and use it for mulch and topsoil in the summer. South wind blows a little in it but with prevail nw winds it's really not a problem.

    Very nice!

    What are you treating the salt with?

    And I hate to be one of "those" guys, but can you ball park what the conveyor setup cost you?
