My buddy asked me to help him with this commercial mulch job he just got..Its going to be a good 15yrds of mulch(then another store right next door) he says so hes going to bring 2 of his skids out to the job but he doesnt know if he should leave the skids there overnight or bring them home/to the fenced yard...or leave them on site.
(2-3 day job)
What would you guys do?

2 skids for 15yrds of mulch? Depending on the layout of the property, 15yrds of mulch should only take a bit more than 1/2 a day with a few guys.

I always bring mine home unless the owner is there on a residential job. A commercial job, mine comes home every night. It's expensive to drag it back and forth, but it's safer at my house with me watching then sitting in a parking lot, etc... unattended. I've alot of guys leave their stuff at the job and all them have lost multiple machines overnight. One guy left his trailer, bobcat, two buckets and a backhoe attachment....all where gone by morning except one of the buckets. They loaded his trailer w/his stuff and took it. Insurace paid the loan off and cancelled his policy, never to get it again. He lost the equity he had in the equipment and then had no insurance anymore.

15 yards of mulch? We could do that in a day with wheelbarrows.

If you leave them on site overnight, pull out the batteries and take them with you. The bad guys will not want to take the time to go find batteries, and install them.
