Nice, from the looks of the picture it looks like the tarp might have a clearance issue with the board though. Maybe not

We never asked if the extra weight would be an issue...I will have to look into that.

When the time comes to get your first bark blower I'd recommend nothing smaller than the BB-605/705...that's the bigger trailer mount, approx 5 yard capacity. I know plenty of guys run the small 302 machines...but they just seem so small that the efficiency is lost with having to load with pitchforks out of a truck or constantly have a machine on-site to load with. Don't take my word for it though...go out and put one to use...rent one or sub someone out with one to make sure you are getting what you want!

A&J...it was a pleasure crossing paths with you guys as well. It's always nice to meet good quality people in the industry. We have not started work yet...we still have at least another 2 weeks before we get going. Still a fair share of snow up here & everything is just soaked. I'm envious of your early season! Let me know about Westerly & we'd be happy to come down!

The pictures are a little blurry. We had to angle each end of the boards for the tarp clearance...so far so good while testing in the shop...but ya never know until it's put out in action!

MLI...shoot me a PM or give me a call and we can discuss it. 978-957-8873. We price the bark blowing a few different ways...either by the yard, with you providing the mulch or us providing it. We can also do by the hour with you providing the mulch. If a machine is needed on-site to load we can provide that too. Let me know if we can be of any help!
