    I’ve got a mulch job that I can back the trailer up to within 20ft of the mulching area. I plan on charging per hour but on average how much mulch can one guy move in an hour?:weightlifter:

    I did 1 yard an hour on my first mulch job.
    Some of it went from trailer to beds and some of it was moving it up to about 100 feet (the beds went all around the house) in a 6cf wheel barrel

    Starting out, the first jobs that was my experience as well, 1 an hour.
    As I got better, today 2 yards an hour is more like it...
    But take your time, do it right first, you'll get there don't rush it.
