when you get a a few jobs done with it let us know how much time that saves you per hour vs wheel barrow and spread method. Also does that save you from having as many guys on the property?

that blower is sweet...it surprises me more guys don't run them, between the money you save on labor & material it will more then pay for itself. Plus you will get more work done = even that much more $$

How do you load the blower once your on a job? Do you hand load it from the dump bed or do you just run back to your shop each time your empty?

I would imagine he loads it from the truck bed, or if it's a big job and it's dumped there he would use his skid steer.
