I figured mulch would be cheap in LA. Do you not have any place local that makes mulch you can buy direct from? I'm a bagged only guy but here that much mulch would only cost $208.95 bagged from a place called Austin Wood Recycling.

Years back when I worked at Home Depot I used to order Cypress mulch from FL by the truckload from Corbitt. Here Cypress is a home owner mulch and it's popularity peaked in the late 90's. The problem with Cypress is it is just shredded Cypress with no composting process to give it color. The color comes from it being freshly shredded and it fades very quickly. Trying to blow grass clipping, leaves, or plant trimmings out of Cypress mulch is an exercise in futility.

Dump Run

Here's my daily driver. I got pulled over by the Weights and Measures Enforcement this week for a random inspection again. Luckily, there not very engine savvy and don't realize the DPF is gone and the EGR pipe has been yanked and plugged.

I pulled about a dozen loads of top dressing this spring that were in the 28-33K range and 25K is legal. One of the last loads I hauled was 17 yards. If you buy a big dump and plan to use it fully invest in electric over hydraulic disc brakes because the electric brakes are only marginally good to 20K. The upgrade is $3800 but it's worth it. Even at 34K the brakes easily jerk the truck to a stop.

If you forget to adjust the controller as you lighten your load it will lock up all eight tires. Seeing smoke coming off $1600 worth of tires is not something you want to see.

You need to Google No Spill gas cans. Amazon had the best price on the last batch I bought. Those cans you have are a real pain to work with. The No Spill are push button and make refilling hand help equipment with small tanks a world easier.

Jacob did you take the mud flaps off your truck? Once you get to a dually size truck it's usually illegal to not have things like cab lights and mud flaps. I'm assuming you have a CDL since you are now over 26K with your GCWR capacity when your dump is hooked up. Usually the commercial laws follow the federal guidelines so it's the same in all states unless they want to be even more strict.

Here in TX they use the USDOT system (no more TXDOT numbers) as do about 35 other states. I think LA is one of those states still using their own DOT numbers. Usually, if you lose a mud flap here and get stopped you'll get a ticket. I carry an extra flap for my trailer.
