Mulch Spreading

What is the best and most efficient way to spread mulch. Last summer I had a bad a$$ golf cart that would haul my trailer full of mulch around and I could throw it from the trailer into the beds making me only have to lift it once. Sadly, I had to sell it so I'm looking for an alternative. Give me any and all ideas and techniques.

all depends on the property. i work out of the bed of my truck as much as possible. the less i have to bend and work off the ground the better. for a long distance haul, i do kinda the same thing you did with a kawasaki mule. mini trailer is a wick slick idea, i gotta try that!
