    I'm considering trying liquid anti-icing, after reading the documentation it looks like it cost much less then salt. It would be great if liquid could replace salt completely.

    Does this product work just as well as salt if it were to be applied directly on 3 cm of snow and would it break up a sheet of ice like salt?

    Could you actually get a price for it? My local dealer couldn't even get a response from them last year.

    Anyways, you have some learning to do if you have been led to believe that you can burn an inch\3 CM of snow with a reasonable of any variety of liquid.

    M1000 is a great product, but it was too expensive compared to something like calcium chloride on a regular basis for me.

    I have no experience with M1000 but a lot with LCC, like 6yrs now I have been spraying. I will guarantee no liquid product completely replaces what rocksalt does. It is just another tool in the tool box as has been said for ages around here.
