    First year plowing for myself. Will be doing mostly residentials. Only a few VERY small commercials. So, those will be my 3 small salting accounts. I won't buy a tailgate spreader this year, becuase the lots are small, and I need to save up some $$. I'll be push spreading rock salt on very small parking lots....maybe 10 parking spaces max.

    So, to the question:

    Is there any formula for how much salt I'll need per applicatoin (I know this will be an average figure).

    If anyone has a formula for how many 50lb bags per 1000sqft....please share. It would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
