I bet there is about 120 yds of mulch being delivered on that trailer. A guy i worked for would get deliveries of 128yds at a time with a walking floor trailer like that one.

pro turf, it "pays" to care for your stuff. litterally. so many dont keep up with maint on their stuff, we have repainted some of our trailers and new wood etc, did you see them on my posts? anyways, nice job keeping things clean and presentable.

I see you are using the pole hedge trimmer. It is what I use for all my trimming jobs the only thing I do not like about it is that it gets really hot the head and up the pole where if I do not have gloves on it is to hot to touch. Do you also have this problem and do you use regular hedge trimmers on smaller bushes if so pros and cons please. Thanks
