    I have alway ran my spreader form someone else,I have a few of my own acsount's that have always just plowed no salt or sand...they called me today and wanted salt on some and sand one somemore,I was just wondering what you guy's are charging for spreading,I'm not worried about mat. cost as it proly vary's quite a bite here to there.The mat. will be stored at our shop and I will haul it myself.

    i buy my salt for 75 a ton, and charge 185-215 a ton installed depending on which account (some are 20 tons of salt, some are 1 ton, so i charge what i feel is fair)


    if its straight time, ill charge 80 a ton for material, 125 an hr for the spreader time

    ive subbed when i was younger, with my spreader & the other guys salt for as low as 85 an hour
