    Sorry, I don't. I don't do a lot of salting, so I just went to home depot and picked up some 50lb bags for $4.95 each I think.

    go to your local plow dealer or landscaping centers, not depot, like supply houses. They usually have magic melt in big bags, or you can get a cubic yard of salt for about 100-125 in a big tub that should get you through all winter for walkways and little stuff. If you wanna spread, you gotta find bulk salt EARLY in the winter, you pay top dollar right now.......

    About every 5 years I go through all of my equipment. I put new cutting edges, shocks, blade guides and snow deflectors on my blades and replace batteries and electrical wiring in the trucks, and even some motors and vibrators on the salters. I did 8 of my 12 trucks this year and laid out alot of money to be prepared. NO SNOW IN SIGHT, it figures! :cry:

    I think , let me re-phrase that I hope that it is going to be a late hard winter here in Jersey. We must, I need money , got my eye on the new Mustang or a Family truckster. One of those.

    We will get some snow soon, we have been spoiled with early storms in early December last year and the year before. Im trying to be patient, put a lot of money out to be prepared for snow this year. It better snow! Its going to get a little colder this week from what they are saying, hopefully it lasts, that will be a good start. This rain that we have been getting can change to snow. Only worked two days last week because of all the rain. Almost doesn't feel like Christmas with out the cold.
