Just wondering the most cubic yards of mulch you have ever installed by yourself.

For me it is 17 cubic yards

i have never installed muclh by myself, but our biggest job was 27 yrds, and it was all spread by hand in 1 acre of perennial gardens, took 3 of us 3 full days, we have a coulpe 15 to 20 yrd accounts, but most of our muclh jobs are in the 6-9 yrd area.

Ummm , how much mulch fits in a dump truck? I was paid $500 a dump truck to re-mulch La-Pateite Day cares in my area a few years ago.. By myself using a bobcat with a front end bucket on it..

personally 22 yds, now i'm much smarter and I call up a blowing company and they bang them out much faster. I make $$ for a phonecall. I've sold some 40-60yd's that way. Can't beat it.

Solo, pitch fork, wheelburrow = 10yds.(whole day)
Me, one assistant, two pitchforks, two wheelburrows = 16yds. (half day)
Largest, two assistants, tractor w/ FEL = 25yds. (6 hrs.)
Total yds. installed per year = ~200yds.

One day, by myself, 10 yards with a wheelbarrow. May not seem like a lot to the rod though... 300 yards, what did you have, payloaders on the job?

62 yards. Took me 7 days solo. It was the most difficult mulch job i ever did. I was mulching between water falls and slides going into a pool. Up big hills, down hills. I work my butt off and i could not get more then 10 yards down in a day.

On easy jobs i've done 12 yards in 5 hours solo.

Last year on a big job we were able to use the skid steer and me and 1 guy did like 40 yards in 4 hours.
