Alan made reference, last night on a different thread, about using an auger arrangement to treat his salt piles with magic. I asked about such an arrangement to load trucks instead of using a skid steer and/or backhoe. We just purchased a township truck (international) with a large salt box. We had to get rid of our L9000 salt truck as it was at the end of its days. This new one is just slightly higher than the old one and our 853 Bobcat is fully extended to dump salt into the hopper. The other trucks are all lower and easy to load. Question: Does anyone on the forum load salt trucks now with a conveyer type arrangement ?? If so, can you give me some help, or some pic's that will assist us and give us some direction in constructing (or purchasing) something to do this?? Any experience with loading times and efficiency??
