Mulcher as in a wood chipper, or a mulching mower, not sure I get it? Maybe a little more info would help.

Sounds heavy duty. I would go talk to tree guys that use them all the time.
How will you store the mulch and how big of a market is there for them?

Justifying the expense would be my first consideration. Maybe subcontract the chipping part, and see how it goes, first.
