Also very nice set up you have i would love to come and vist your shop some day. Thanks.
That is about 150-170 yards of each mulch. We get our mulch from a place in Hooksett NH. Mulch is running in the mid 20 dollar per yard range right now. If you're ever in the area you're more than welcome to stop by our shop...

We just started using the machine...so far so good...still working out a few bugs trying to figure out the best settings for the machine to blow mulch the best. It's 10000x better than lugging wheelbarrows though! Sounds like you guys are moving some serious mulch out your way...keep it up!

So far so good with our machine...we have barely used it so far so it's still early to see if it is too big or small for us. The machine is a Finn 808 with the John Deere diesel.

Our design & install work is very slow right now...hopefully that changes soon.

I'll get some more blower pics up soon...

yes, we have uniform pants, just original dickies, not through a company or anything.
