Ahh you probably can rent them somewhere but its easier to sub it out to a contractor that owns one and is already experienced with it and you can still make money after pay someone else to do it. Thats what i did. Yup, thats good competition.

hey you guys need to wear respirators when working in dusty conditions. Maybe a fire ******ant suit to, you never know when a meteor might strike up there in MA. Down here we wear UV protective suits and 5 gallons of sunscreen SPF1000.

Kinda late for that advice but maybe next time. One of those guys was working with me today as well as several other guys on a job thats larger than the one feature in this thread so its no longer the largest landscape project.

Ten yard is not that much, is it does hurt but you can get it done. we used one of one of my condos, and it was 170 yard of prem. and it was a dream. done in two and a half days start to finsh. But that was with hand edgeing over 1.5 miles of bed edges, cause it poured the day before so we couldnd use the bed edger. Thats what's will kill you for a week.

Your guys will soon be saying "what did you say" all the time if you do not get them some hearing protection ! And if you want to keep reading posts on lawnsite you will get some glasses too!

This job sucks! Can you say sore back? And a fall off the tailgait waiting to happen.
I like the mulch trucks with a hopper and an auger that self feed better.
