Around in my general area there is only one blowing company. They will not do anything under 25 yards. which is all fine and dandy but they are the most reliable people in the world. You have to basiclly babysit them. Which sucks. So i am kind of biast when i say i will hand spread and mulch anything i get,.

Yes, I am a part owner in the detroit co. thus the two company names. Other wise he would have kept both companies superior, I would assume.

I am not sure if they are in your area but I know the co. that was over in oregan when i was there getting my truck, was Warpdrive. Not sure what there address or exact location but they were getting two trucks and said they were from VA. I will see if I can find out where they are located. I know this is there first year and they may not have too much info about themselfs out yet. It takes time for word of mouth and advertising to start spreading around.
