100 yards of mulch too big for my small business in cincinnati

I have a job that requires near 100 yards of mulch. I do not think my equipment alone could handle this. could I make money by contracting this out still? and how much would some of you guys spread 100 yards of mulch for?

call someone who can blow it for you. Ask what they charge, put some on it for you.

Yeah, after you figure labor & materials, I always call my local bark blower company, they can actually do it cheaper than I can, plus It saves everyone's backs...

$10,000 and do it yourself. That job is a money maker. Take your time and do it right.

100 yds [I]sounds[I] like a lot to do by hand, but when you break it down really isn't that bad. If the average is 1 yd per man per hour, then 4 guys should be able to do it in 3 days.
I've done 55 yds in less than 2 days with a 3 man crew. With wheelbarrels, pitchforks and rakes only.

A few years ago we did 70 yards in 8 hours but we had a turf machine and a bobcat and 4 guys.
