Just regular, I been kicking around the idea to get it treated with magic. So many people rant and rave about it. How much does slicer run and can you get it around here? I also hear alot about Clearlane blue but I dont know where you get that stuff either

I dk what it costs i just use it on his lots. But it makes a noticable difference. Almost instantly you can notice it melting. I know he had a triaxle delivered but i dk from where

You may have answered this at some point in your thread but its a long thread... Before you got your new chevy dump, how did/do you like your dump trailer? I see its only 5x8. This year I plan on getting one, probably 6x12' Bri-mar but afraid it maybe too small. A buddy of mine as a 6'6"x16' I believe I he runs out of room all of the time. After getting yours, did you ever regretting not getting a bigger size? Or has that size been plenty that you have ever needed? Any insight on yours and thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

Ya I think I might look into that or magic next year, I notice I put it down real heavy on lots so they are nice and clean when owners come in etc but after the storm my lots are WHITE! So I want something that looks cleaner after the fact

I loved that dump I brought that size because all I had then was a halfton truck, still I think with the hills around here too much bigger of a trailer would start hurting my 2500hd. For the most aprt it was the right size most mulch jobs are 5-6yards and thats what it held there were times i had to make 2-3 trips though. When it came to hauling stone I could only carry 2-3ton but once again most jobs were not too big.
I still have the trailer and will keep it this season and see how much I use it with having the dump truck. The trailer is nice because with the single axle its rare and the custom made gate on it is a huge plus.

the salt is absolutely awesome! i salted one bank and started on the one right next door and by the time i finished the second sidewalk the other lot was over 50% melted. i also noticed i can put down less compared to regular salt

Do you notice if the parking lots are pretty clean and not alot of dry salt on them a few days later? I would think so since you are using less salt
