I have to say that I find it much easier and faster to spread. I can hual at least a yard in a regular two wheeled wheelbarrow, which takes about a minute to load. There seems to be a lot more plants per square feet in the typical landscape down here which can make bulk mulch a little tougher to spread. If it were possible to simply dump a load of bulk mulch from the wheelbarrow then I would agree it may be quicker. I can easily spread 50 or so bags in under two hours. I can also hual over 5 yards in a standard pickup without any racks. That of course is when I buy a whole pallet. They just slide 'er right on in.
WOW....You can fit at least a yard in the wheelbarrow? With bulk it takes three and it weighs a decent amount triple an overloaded wheelbarrow mustn't be too light.
