    I was wondering if any one has or has an idea on the cost of a mulch blower truck. Was thinking this could be a great add on.

    Thanks

    I considered it last year, and bull ****. Buy a turf maker hydro seeder. It is affordable and you cant beat hydro seeding. Get away from straw.

    We had an 8 yard Finn truck mount. When we bought the blower it had 250 hours on it. I was attached to a 1985 GMC C7000 and we paid $55,000. You can get a decent used 16 yarder for $75-$85K

    200-300K per rig, most def.

    The County or State tandem-axle rig will sit behind yours with lights-ablaze and the flotilla of signage and orange cones while you fill in garden-area medians of roadways, the Fed. Courthouse, or Stadium with one hose operator laborer and one driver /backpack-blower operator per truck.
