    Looking to buy 10 ton of pelletized lime next month, in southeastern massachusetts, trucking it myself. Last 2 years lowes was the best deal, any recommendations out there for a better price?

    Try an Ag co op or and ag fert supplier. We find thier prices for pelletized lime hard to beat.

    New green, check your Lesco pricing on lime. I went to the website and checked, they seem to have gone down below the supplier that I PM you about.

    $8.50 a bag??? There had to be a mistake, Charlie. I would ask your sales rep about it. Are you sure you didn't pay a retail price (versus wholesale) for, say, calcitic lime?? Maybe the guy entered the wrong sku?? There's no way 50# pelletized dolomitic lime at LESCO goes for that much....take off 3 dollars and you're about right...

    Lescos lime is terrible, it's full of big chunks of limestone and very dusty!
