    I picked up an uber important commercial account in the tech sector here in the city. The company subbing this site to me requires MAGIC SALT and will be delivering bulk loads to my yard for this site. I asked that they drop extra to me at whatever their cost is, and they agreed. Anyway, to get to my point, I am wondering about how much more effective this stuff is vs regular salt. I am looking to get n upper edge on local comp around here by pretreating and keeping my plows and shovels off site for as long as possible.

    It's great. Simply put.
    more expensive then regular salt, but using 30% less is what starts to pay you back.
    The rest comes from the wicked long lasting residual effect that allows you to not have to pre salt because their's still residual amount left after the last storm.
    And last but not least, with built in salt neutralizer you don't have to worry about it eating your equipment, or your customer's grass.

    It's all I use--great stuff and the side benefit is it smells great.

    Not to hijack Ryans thread but 1, what does uber mean and 2, is there an amount of forecasted snow that keeps you from pretreating meaning if they are talking 8 inches or so does it feel as if pretreating is a waste because youll be plowing more and maybe pushing whats left of the magic salt around

    Uber=Above average

    And yes, I dont want to pre lay down a thick coat of magic salt for a 5 incher when I'm going to have to come back, push and salt it again anyway. Anyone can listen to a sales rep squwak, I want to hear about real world applications.
