I figured that I could load a wheelbarrow twice as fast as I could when I lifted it, and when it runs out near the gates of the dump, you lift it and slide all the mulch to the back.
With that said, I had to do it at a large resi and it kinda sucked bringing the heavy dump into the field and out back.
It all sounds dumb, but I was surprised how much difference it made.
I have 2 guys who work for me and they do all the shoveling so i really don't care if its harder to lift the shovel lol
