    I was asked to bid on a 41 unit apt complex today. Never done anything that big. They want sand which is new for me. I am pricing spreaders, and no one can tell me what to expect for coverage. I understand it does depend on what speed you run it at, but i'm trying to figure out what kind of coverage 2 CU yds will yield. I'm not sure of the acreage, but its only about 50 parking spots. Any ideas?
