    My boss and I will be plowing a couple of parking lots this winter. We are looking to purchase a truck load of Sand/Salt Mix. Looking to price out options. Can anyone point me in a direction?

    We are located in central Connecticut

    the past couple of years the salt availability has been short thru the winter, and we got a couple of dump truck loads of sand, and just mixed it ourselfs to strech out the salt supply we had, it is pretty easy to do if you have any kind of loader, and would be cheaper than buying it pre mixed
