LOL i actually saw them the other day running a train of mexican's with trash cans over their shoulders, I thought it was a great idea and almost bought a few trash cans the other day to try it out.

yep that would be it! hahah when we saw them they were doing a huge office building and had about 50 mexicans like a "train" back to the trucks.lol....my guys laughed and thought it was funny until they showed up the nxt day n i had bought 4 trash cans. lol....like i said before they r very efficient, u only have to shovel the mulch in n u can spread it right from the can, imagine that, the biggest landscape company knows a thing or two about being efficent.

Its not even about being efficient, I think its about saving room by not having to bring 30-40 wheel barrows. you save a ton of room stacking trash cans in the trailer vs's 30-40 wheel barrows.

Having 40-50 Mexicans with trash barrels is still cheaper than a mulch blower with 2 guys runing it.

i guess.... i cant say iv ever seen brickmen using a blower around me, i know shearon and a few other big companys use them...the accounts they have around me r heavly landscaped and i think a mulch blower would be tedious with the hose going around all the shrubs n flowers etc....

Maybe, but I'd rather run a mulch blower all day than truck effing trash buskets.

couldnt agree with u more on that one. but i guess running buckets all day is better than not having a job at all.

i wish you guys talked about this subject 4wks ago ,i probably would have saved a crap ton of time lol.as far as bark blower goes you better be putting down 3 or 4 thousand yards because its too short of a season to lay the kind of cash down to buy something that sits 10 months a yr.and then if you dont buy one big enough you than have to bring skid steers etc to load it fast enough.2 months out of the yr i will keep it the way it is.gold pro im going to try that trash can way.
