    Hey guys, I asked this question in another forum, but here I go again.
    I am measuring potential customers lots for sq. ft. area. When I get the area figured, I need to "estimate" how many 50lb bags will be needed. I understand there are different variables, but I basically need to know a ball park amount of area a 50lb bag will cover. Customers want to know how much for salting. I need to give them something.

    10-15lbs per 1,000sqft.

    I think it might depend on your spreader, but i get about 1200 sq ft per 15lbs.
