bout an inch an a half on the ground ,18degree's, i'm going in the morn. gonna try the salter out for the 1st time and maybe putz around with the new plow as well.
have a good christmas celebration everyone!
I switched to straight salt mid-season last year. Thanks in small part to Alans ribbing lol. I found I need two-thirds less than the mix for better results than 7/2 mix I was using. My material and labor cost actually went down. Less trips to the supplier too as I buy it as I need it.
I had been using a Buyers single stage but decided it was a POS and can get better results hand-casting so I sold it. A full-size V is not practical for me, and I have been esp lazy trying to find a decent 2-stage tailgate unit. So my shovel guy is now my "spreader".
Yes you read right. I can be in and out of my largest lot in under 20 minutes. Almost 2 acres roughly the shape of an "E". It would take me that long just to finish f$%&ing with the Buyers, knocking down bridging, refilling etc. My other 5 lots are 1/2 acre each or less so it works esp well on them.
If , during a snow event, I plow the hills first, spread some material at the top, by the time the flats are done the brine has completely cleared the hill so even if its still snowing another pass is usually unnecessary.
