    Bought some stuff today for Ice maintenance

    in all we bought 2 bins for are daycare center's,we will add non skid rocks in them for the sidewalks

    10 bags of salt 20kg/bag

    30 bags off sand salt 20kg/bag

    30 bags of Non-skids rocks 20kg/bag

    and i must say this was our first time loading the truck like this,we heard some new sounds coming from under the truck when we where hitting potholes.I dont know if it was normal tho..

    And almost bought some Eco-friendly ice melter.....do you guys know if there worth it?

    Yeah.....one of the first things I did was had a local suspension shop install 2 extra leafs each side in the main packs and a 4 pack of helper springs. The most I ever had on there was 2 skids of bagged rock salt (30--80lb bags) plus I always have the dump bed in, so I'm guessing about 5800lbs in the bed.....shhhhhh dont tell the DOT guys. It was def. squatting a bit.

    One more thing, keep those bags covered with a tarp or they may become solid bricks before you know it.

    It looks like some new containers were bought to keep everything dry.
