    i think it all depends on what type of mulch you're going for i've always gotten the good old black mulch it has worked the best for my properties that we do the hardwood deco is best at other places and so on. but i bet the prices are higher then cjm i get the mulch pretty darn low

    well believe me the truck is a 97 and has been taken care of really well, it had only one owner other then my uncle. it was a rancher who owned it, they work them hard but take care of them well. and the sod well lets say it has taken more easily, i've loaded it up to 4 pallets of sod

    Ya I know CJM is cheap. I prefer to use the best though because I also charge more than most guys for mulch. That old '97 is the perfect work truck man.

    well for me i've always had the black mulch and to me personally no one come close to their quality in black mulch; now the other types or kinds that's a different story, and price wise you got to find your good resources for both you and the customers, i've got a custom house builder that lives of our black mulch, every new customer that comes to him automatically wants the black mulch from cjm

    Try using wedges when your cutting the stump off...

    I own a small tree and landscape company, i have a few saws. Please wear chaps, I have seen way to many injuries from people not wearing them. If you cut your leg off you will ruin the rest of your lifeĀ… There only $70.
