    What are some of you charging for chloride spread on walks with a walk behind spreader. Im looking for product + labor. I was thinking around $.65 per pound. This would work out to $12 a 50 # bag and about $15 per bag labor.

    Not enough.
    We get $16 per bag (or any part thereof) plus the labor to spread (1/2 hour minimum).

    Pretty sad that a near millionare is the only person using non salt products on the walks (John ). Or is he the only one that is kind enough to give me advice? Thanks again.

    Sorry Doug, we have switched to magic -0. So I dont have calcium pricing. But seeing that magic is about the same price retail as CAL, we get about $ 30.00 per bag spread.
