    Anyone out there know where I can get my hopper loaded with salt (or magic salt) either before or during a storm? I'm in Warwick RI. I'd rather get straight salt, no sand mix.

    there is a magic dealer in Mystic, CT probably 45 min from you. They do deliver. Go to www.magicsalt.com and look up distributors. Hope this helps.

    Thanks. I was hoping for someplace closer, but if I have to make the trip to mystic I will. This week looks rough...my front end loader is in the repair shop at the moment. I hope it's ready soon cuz I'm gonna need it!

    Thats where they stock pile the salt, at the port of providence off of allens ave, right from those ocean going super tankers. Then the 18 wheelers start hauling it away daily for months. wouldn't hurt to ask if they sell to any truck that pulls in?!! :nod:

    thanks....

    Thanks for all of your help. I ended up going to Watson Mulch in W.Greenwich? They sold me straight salt by the yard. I wasn't the most economical way to go, but it got me out of a jam.
