    50lb bags at 4.20 plus tax 40 bags to a skid @ 168.00 a skid plus tax. If anyone is interested let me know as i am ordering 32 skids next week. Bulk salt is going for an outrageous price anywere...125.00 to 135.00 a ton, and just to let you know there screwing you. I called Russo Power in Chicago and asked for bulk salt price, 130.00 a ton, so i told the guy i got a quote from carghill at 65.00 at ton just to see what he would say, and he said he would beat it???? so hold on to your boots this year for bulk salt, looks like its going to be a "bag" year...lol

    I have numbers from 129- 145.00 per ton delivered. This is gonna be a big slip and fall year for those that don't spend the money. We have our salt set at the market rate on our contracts so as salt goes up so do we. I would like to hear more about Russo's beating that price!!!

    I have early buy bags of salt available.
    A full truck of 18 pallets (882 bags) is $4.00 a bag cash/check/charge. And $250.00 for freight. Month of September special pricing only.

    Picking up in Markham will be $4.50/bag, call for availability.

    I also have special bulk pricing for September if you are interested.

    I am hoping to have the rest of my salt and calcium product pricing by the end of the week. Fingers crossed!!!!

    I will keep in touch.

    Please feel free to call with questions and orders!

    Maybe he was referring to Midwest Trading, im not totaly sure but this is what it is now. The price has gone up and it's now 3.81 (for over 9 pallets) and 3.89 for under nine pallets with a min order of two. This is the price for orders placed by the tenth of October, today. The phone number is 630-365-1990. Delivery is $75 flat rate for the Chicago land area.

    No-solar salt DOES NOT work as well.
    Solar salt is a finer grain and won't melt thru thicker ice as well as regular rock salt. It'd be Ok in "black ice" conditions though.
    The other thing is b/c the grain is finer it goes thru the salter alot faster and does not "throw" as far, so you end up w/ a dense pattern behind the truck and thats about it.:nod:
