Thought I'd share a video we made using our Finn mulch blower.
<sarcasm on> I'd never spend that kind of money for a machine like that, I can do it way faster and better and cheaper with a wheelbarrow and shovel and....and........<sarcasm off>
Almost the only way to do it. My way is better though, let my sub spend money on the trucks to blow it in. lol
You've got an awesome operation b-man.
That's awesome, how much is a set up like that?
This year I stopped looking at mulch as "rain day" work. So far I've installed more mulch in 4 weeks than I did in 4 months last year. Oh, and the guys actually enjoy mulch jobs.
As far as cost, the purchase price of a machine is only part of it.
I'm loading with a Deere 344j, but the wheel loader was primarily for snow.
The hose with couplers will cost you just under $1000 for a 50 ft. section.
Would have been nice last week, I installed 27 yards by myself.
Very nice,kool machine!
They're great when they work!
Put some High sides on that little dump and you can really haul some material. Those machines are nice for large commercials but for resi you would have to have some large properties and large amount to justify that thing. They are badass though and sure lay down material. Nice setup by the way!
Did you have one that didn't work?
As far as I'm concerned, all machines will break down, need maintenance and require regular repairs.
I'm very impressed with this machine.
The truck had no sides because we were loading off a stock pile with the wheel loader. Now the truck has high side and we carry 8 yards on average unless the jobs needs more then I'll use another truck or bigger one.
Interesting comment, what is your experience?
These units have been out for well over 10 years, so I would think the bugs would be out by now.
