equipmentREPURPOSE"We are using old Conveyor Belting for several applications.  Wyoming Dept of Transportation uses belting on front of our  front plows and side wings  to keep snow from coming over the plow while plowing snow.  This helps with drivers visibility issues.    We also use it around our spreader chutes to keep our sanding material from blowing up on traffic.  It seems to keep the material from blowing off while spreading material." Steve B.
