''i gotta install 30 yrds or mulch. I am not sure whats the best way to do it. I was thinking getting a little machine or something its on a 2 acre residential lot with all sod. I was thinking a DINGO but it tears up the grass. Anny ideas /''

alot of variables here also.............we dont know how many beds or places that require mulch. Im not trying to be a smarty pants about it, just stating that the wheelbarrow method might would be MY choice

I agree, but it sounds like our poster is either light-staffed or lazy? The Power Buggy will allow for a better conservation of energy with faster results, but I do admit that 30 yds is an easy job with 4 guys and a wheelbarrow.

If you don't have large mulch wheelbarrows go buy them. 8 or 10 cubic foot wheelbarrows get the job done easy. 2 guys loading and unloading wheelbarrows and one guy spreading. This job would be done easily in a day, if you don't have the capability to bring the mulch to the site in one or two loads, get it delivered and save even more time. Whoever said 1 man hour for 1 yard of mulch needs to get harder working guys. I would charge a man hour per yard but it shouldn't actually take that long to install it.

Your guys must be some hard workers. Less than 1 MH to unload, dump, and spread a yard of mulch correctly? We charge between $75.35 a yard and $85.30 depending on variables.
