Hi Adam - check out the "search" feature (blue button near the top of the page) and do a search under "Magic". Plenty of reading there, good possibility of finding answers to a lot of your questions.

Any of the threads that you find during the search can be brought back to the top of the list just by posting a reply.

OH BOY DOES IT WORK !!!!

Sorry it took so long for me to add my two cents here but i just got back from vacation.Yes Adam not only does Magic work and save you money but it will also save your equipment.When Magic is applied to salt it reduces the corrosivity of salt by 98%. Basically salt becomes non corrosive and with all the various chemicals available today it is the only 1 which can make such a claim.The reason for this is because Magic is not low corrosive or anti corrosive it is non corrosive,The Magic will remove the rust from your sanders and reverse the rusting process.That is a wild statement but until you try it you will have to see for yourself. Not to get stuck on that 1 point but there are several other benifits Magic has to offer besides saving your sanders and prelonging there life. When you treat salt with magic 1 ton of treated salt will now spread and do the job of 2 tons of straight salt. The snow will not be able to stick to the pavement as the Magic will keep it from bonding to concrete,asphalt,or brick or basically any surface except a dirt road where you will not see the benifits of Magic as the product will seep into the dirt.Magic will not hurt your landscaping either. We are a contractor who sells Magic as well as uses it and the added benifits in time savings and money are tremendous.
Thanks John Parker

Any of you guys who are curious about Magic and how it works we are going to have a bbq here in Poughkeepsie,N.Y. where we will have Magic samples to give away and demostrations on Magic.We are going to do this either the 1st or 2nd Saturday in October.If you get the chance it will be a good place to meet other contractors and find out how they use Magic as well as those contractors just coming by to talk shop.

Magic on rust

For those of you who are interested in what Magic does to rust...I took a rusty washer and soaked half of it for about a week in Magic.

This is a serious question....Has anybody ever thought of spraying Magic O directly on the underneath parts of their trucks? Would it do any good? Are there reasons not to (other than the trucks would smell like the stuff)? They get a salt bath every time they go out anyway. It makes me sick to see how much rust there is on things like brake lines on trucks that are only a few years old.

I have customer who pays me to spray his loader down with Magic in order to keep the rust off his machine.The only real problem is that everthing sticks to it so it gets pretty dirty quick.Yes you can spray your equipment with it and you wont hurt anything,your equipment will be sticky though

Digger,
I thought about trying that. The one problem with doing that, is Magic is water soluble so you would have to apply every time the truck came back to the shop. As long as Magic is in contact with a chloride (i.e. sodium, magnesium, calcium) there is no corrosion. We use to pressure wash the spreaders after every use and oil everything but now we spray straight Magic on our vee boxes after ever use and tarp them. We also spray them before storing them inside for the season. I'm going to start spraying one of the truck undercarriages to see what the results are. I'll have some before and after pics.


I also have some great pics of a spreader using straight salt and one using magic salt. I'll post them ASAP.

TurfPlus, hope you don't mind that I posted the pics...I used paint to change the bitmap to a jpeg and then Microsoft photo to trim it down
