What do you use the mulch blower for? May sound like a rookie question but is it really faster and more efficient than traditional methods?

Are you planning on installing racks on the truck for carrying ladders and pvc pipes. We have racks on all of our service trucks, they really come in handy. If you need any advice or have questions about irrigation let me know,we have been doing it since 1988. Last year I decided to start a lawn care/ landscape division to offer the full service package like you do. I would love to pick your brain sometime.

We will be using it to install bark mulch. Some of the blower trucks can install stone & loam but we plan to use it for strictly mulch. It is considerably faster using a mulch blower instead of wheelbarrows & rakes. If you are looking for more info do a search on lawnsite or check out www.finncorp.com
