    I paid $92.5 per tn today for rock salt. I mix it 20% into my sand for driveways. Hard to make a profit at that price. what is it going for in other areas?

    I have mine delivered to my shop from North American Salt Company on the river. I actually order it through Cincinnati Wholesale Supply. I don't know where to get it per pickup load.:confused: I have a buddy in Franklin, that has it also and he may be able to load your truck per storm?

    what I would like to do is get like 3-4 tons/yards and fill super sacks with it.....Then I could load a v box as needed with my fork lift......I am on my 6th pallet of bagged now for this year so that is +7 tons...... If he would be willing to sell it to me on an as needed basis and at a decent price that would be very cool...... I could either have him load the sacks or I could haul the salt in my dump trailer and fill them myself......

    I like that you can stack the loaded sacks for storage...
