Well I got my 100 tons of salt today, it only took one hour to haul the whole car load to the shop with the three trucks.It doesn't seem like as much as I thought but it is most certainly enough.Would hate to have to move it all by hand thats for sure.
Hey if you need some, you can get in your TRUCK and buzz up to diggermans and get some, and your in luck this is pure salt and it will corrode concrete just jiffy quick,so you'll give something to do in the summer.
Damn, we're getting hit $60/ton up here, picked up at the distributor. Granted, we're further from the source, but our distributor is a major agent for Cargill in VT/NY/NH and is buying in multiple carload lots. I've heard rumors of being able to buy out of Canada at $45, delivered but I've never been able to track down the source.
That guy can't be making much for 30.50 delivered. The blue salt is mixed w/ calcium (I think). White is pure salt. The blue works better. The white salt is more crossive I would say. one of me trucks was stored close to my pile of pure salt and the salt ate it up pretty well.
How are you looking this year, I have a couple of trucks if you need them?.
Picked up in Connecticut is $48.00 per ton, 15 Ton minium thats the best price I was able to find around here. Hauled in two truck loads last week and then had them come out and spray the pile with Magic O, sure hope it does what they all say it will. Just my two cents
I was told that the blue color that we see on some of the salt is just an anti-caking agent that has been added and it doesn't increase the performance of the salt at all. The brown on the other hand is probably Magic and that does increase the effectiveness of the salt substantially.
The varios colors in salt usually blue and sometimes green are for anti-caking .this does not add to the effectiveness of salt or make it anyless corrosive but will help it from freezing somewhat.Adding calcium does not turn salt blue as calcium is colorless.
