    We would like to store some salt off site so we dont need to drive back
    20+ miles to reload. Anybody that does this I would greatly appreciate
    how you do it.

    depending on how big your complex is our lots have back corners where we have our salt on location it works great and we dont have to pay for wasted fuel and guys slaking off on their way backa and forth

    someone here mentioned renting a refuse container for the winter to store salt in. just put a tarp over it to keep out the moisture. but you will need a bobcat or something similar to load it.

    That was me...I mentioned it in an earlier post. We rent 20 yard dumpsters for 3 months. Nothing permanent and no structure or equipment to worry about. You can shovel the salt out of it or run a bobcat into it and your all set! :drinkup:
