    Do most of you guys also apply salt to roads and parking lots at an average of 30 to 50 lbs per 1000 to 1200 sq ft. ? Wanting to know if that sounds rite or if i am applying a little to heavy ? Thanks

    Your rates are in the ballpark. 50 is a little heavy, but I salt heavy to cut down on my transport costs.
