    Im going to be going out on my own next season and will be offering salting/sanding and i want to know a few things.

    if i get a v box what kind of salt or combo to use and where i can get it in bulk in minnesota?

    or if i get a tailgate spreader what kind to use and how to charge using bagged salt? i was thinking charge twice as much as the bag cost but that's just a thought!

    any input would be greatly appreciated

    Thank You
