    Hello all

    This fall bought a Lesco combo drop/broadcast spreader from

    Lesco. Will Magic flow easly through unit or are particles to large?

    Currently using urea as per Lesco rep suggestion. Am trying to

    get some 50# bags to try myself

    Where is your location? I had the same problem, just with the smaller ones. I used Bare Ground solutions(IceBan) coated salt for my bigger trucks. It works great. I called Joe Mahoney and told him what the spreader was doing. Joe told me to go with a pellet, flake calcium our Mag product. They sold me on the idea and my customers love the pellets and flake. They can tell you who to call in your area our what to buy. Call 888-800-8356 ask for Joe.

    How did the urea work, or did it?
    Just wondering. Lesco here told me the same, but I went with a different bagged product and was really happy with the results.

    Urea worked GREAT!!

    Very even size particles, more so than anything else i've used

    What was you using it on, mainly snow or ice too?
    Do you know what the outside temp was when you were dropping it?
    Also was this for the main drive and parking areas, or just walkways and entrances/steps?
    Did it start working right away, or did it take time?

    Just looking for other ideas for our area. Thanks!
