    Here I thought I only had 2 options.........
    1) load and haul to the scale or
    2) undermine and slide the scale under the salt pile :laughing:

    I'm not sure I would trust the 72 lbs per cubic foot number for all salts. I would think taking 3-4 cubic foot samples from the certain pile and coming up with an average would be more exact for each pile?
