We do the landscaping seperate from the mowing also never at the same time unless its like weeding a small mulch bed or something small , we have done real small projects on the lawn care route but I just throw a few bags of mulch in the trailer or truck for that. How are you guys that run enclosed trailers refueling your equipment?
We do 300+ yards out of the back of a truck. I can't see how a dump trailer would be easier if you are unloading with a machine, also, how do you transport the machine with the trailer being filled with mulch? I agree with Jim, different areas and different set ups dictate the equipment being used.
