    New liquid de-icing units. 270 gallon skid mounted. This sprayer can be used with all liquid de-icers.

    We also carry liquid de-icing products. Calcium / Magnesium Chloride blend is under $1.00 per gallon

    Unit - $1295.00 plus tax and shipping - local pick up available

    Includes: Tank, pump, receiver mounted spray bar w/jets, side mounted hose assembly for sidewalks and steps. Everything you need in a one piece unit. Call for pricing.

    Benefits of using this unit for de-icing are...


    Our product contains both CALCIUM and MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE.

    It effectively melts ice to 25 degrees below zero.

    The liquid never changes it's consistency, even when stored for long periods of time, no matter if the temperature is 100 degrees or 30 below zero.

    The liquid does not have to be applied to every square inch of the area you are de-icing. Remember, the liquid will travel via tires into the parking spots. Unlike rock salt, a little bit of material goes a long way.

    For under $300.00, you can de-ice the same area as 5 tons of rock salt.

    Cities and counties have been using this proven product for over 30 years. They don't use it specifically, because they usually don't have a problem getting salt, and when they do buy salt, they don't pay the price that private contractors do.

    One more huge benefit is demonstrated in this example...Say you get 3 or 4 inches of snow. You plow then de-ice a parking lot, then hours later, a second wave of snow comes, dumping another 3-4 inches of snow that must be plowed. After you re-plow the lot, you will not necessarily have to re-apply the liquid de-icing agent. Remember, the liquid is at ground level, your plows can't touch it. If you use rock salt instead of liquid de-icer, half of the rock salt you applied earlier will be scraped up into the snow piles in the corner of the lot.
