He doesn't use a dump or dump trailer either.

And he wrote that he has enclosed, and open trailers. Before someone told him that his problem was that he only has one kind of trailer.

I'm sure there are lots of guys near you that have great success doing spring cleanups and mowing with landscape trailers. The guy with the broken axle was the one you saw. The rest of us are flyin' around so fast you can't see us !

So you guys in Maine back up on the customers lawn ? And then shovel off a dump ?
I never told him it was a problem to only have one type of trailer. Most of our mulch is on commercial properties and is usually close to the parking lot. For areas away from the parking lot we either use our MTL or wheel it from the truck.

We are long gone by then, and he paid a heck of a lot more in gas to drive his dump around all day, plus insurance, maintenance, etc.
This was the "buddy" I was referring to
