How long does it take to do like 15yds of material would you say?
Tough one to say. You can put almost 1/2 yard in the hopper if you heap it up, and the compost is nice and dry and flowable (do NOT use any material with any sort of significant moisture, you will be sorry). So you are talking like 30 loads spread. Most I have done so far is 3-4 yards of material on residential lawns. Loading the machine is what takes the most time, the machine itself will dump out a load of compost in about 1 minute. I think it took us like 1.5 hours or so for a job like that. So I would guess you could spread out 15 yards in 2/3 day or a little less if you are set up nicely to load the machines.
