    I know this has been probably asked to death but searching for the answer has ended in no luck. I am located in Iowa and I am wondering what the price of salt and sand would be for a load with: 500 lbs salt and 1600 - 2000 lbs sand??? Anyone in the midwest with info would be great. I am sure prices cannot be the same all over the U.S. I DO NOT want to be the lowballer and not the highest either. I am happy being in the middle. I just want to make it worth the time to get the material, mix, load, and apply to be worth it. I am using a 2 yard v-box sander on a F350. Thanks for you help.

    I run about the same mix as you. Here in North Iowa we get around $150 a ton spread.
    Sometimes we just charge the same as what we do to plow the lot.
    Costs us about $20a ton, plus labor for the mix
