    What Size Pre-wet tanks for a 6 yard box? I was thinking 110 gallons-at about 8-10g per ton I should have close to enough for 2 loads. Am I on the money or will I use more liquid when the temps drop to single digits? Any input welcome. Thanks.

    That sounds about right.
    I'm assuming you have a dump box....
    I have 75 gallon tanks. 8-10 gallons per ton is my minimum. As the pavement temp drops we increase our rates up to 20-25 gallons per ton.

    Thanks, that is exactly what I was looking for, and yes it has a dump bed.
