November 15, 2021

Do you ever finish deicing and shake your head at the amount of salt you went through? Maybe you’re checking the books for your snow removal business and trying to cut down on expenses. When minimizing costs, the best place to start is by reducing the amount of material, product, or time consumed. For snow removal, one of the biggest controllable items on that list is salt. Some snowplow crews will throw heavy just to ensure they cover the area, which is likely to result in wasted product. But the less salt you’re dumping, the more you’ll see back on your bottom line. The key here is finding the balance between using too much salt and not enough, shorting your client, and losing business. If you’re wanting to streamline your salt delivery system and ensure you’re managing your spreading to make the most money back, this blog is for you. Just remember that with a topic that includes words like “snow”, “cold” and “salt”, there will be a high number of variables to consider.
