    I checked them out a little. They are a big operation. You would think they would use some larger dumps instead of all them 1.5 yds at a time trucks. Still a lot of salt

    seems like there might be a lot of subs? All different truck brands and colors? Either way, cool video nonetheless.

    Agreed. That place looks like a sub-o-saurus. Or, they are selling product to contractors per yard. Did seem odd that many trucks took only one bucket...

    Is it just me or were there a lot of repeats of trucks in that lineup?

    great idea for those contractors who do not have the storage or equipment to deal with bulk salt. i guess even if you'd pay $10 a more per ton it would be less expensive than skid steer and bin.

    It was more then that, when we get a 35 tonne load dropped the pile isn't very big. I think they sell salt there is no way all the trucks are there's or subs. JMO We have place near us that between selling and them selves goes through 400 ton a night.

    for you bulk salt users, How much would that one 1.5yd scoop cost? I mean, think about that money hes making........... A sheetload!!! Hes got a great ideal really if hes selling it to whomever... Pull in, get a scoop, pay as you leave.... Great ideal if you ask me....

    A lot of those trucks only took one bucket, and there is no way those where 1 yard buckets.

    Bottom line that is a lot of overhead to spread that much sale IMO
