    Have been using magic salt so far this year with great success in the northeast. One question I do have is the best way to apply it on sidewalks. I am in the process of trying all types of spreaders....anyone find one that works well with this stuff? Thanks in advance

    any truck spreader should throw it OK. you might need a vibrator on some models.

    Are you using it on post univ. campus? (saw your username)

    I use an Epoke drop spreader mounted to the 3 point hitch of a tractor to spread Magic on the sidewalks on the college campus I work on.

    Post U,
    Earthway makes a push spreader especially designed for magic salt that works well. Your local magic dealer is also a dealer for this spreader and can help you obtain one.
