    ATV and utility trailer. Holds more than a wheelbarrow, doesn't get tired, won't call in, and doesn't require WC. :)

    the atv is a good idea if you have one, heck, you could probably use a heavy ztr to pull a cart around, well, maybe not, but worth a try.

    i have thought about using my ztr and attaching a yard cart. I would think it would handle it? what about the jrco bucket that sits on top of the mower. I believe its 7.5 cu ft. anyone use that?

    If its a flat property, no gates or anything, I use my tractor with the loader. Makes it go so fast. Right now I have one mulch job with a gate that will go pretty slow and its about 12 yards of mulch. And another on flat land that I will use the loader for, makes it go real fast.

    Someday I'll have a toro dingo, but I just cannot get over the price. They cost almost as much as a real skid steer.

    Depends on the site. I have the benifits of having a Dingo, down side is the bucket (larger one) is still small, if your not careful you can scratch the pavement, must have area large enough to dump mulch & in my case I have a dump traler so it requires multiple trips, as the dingo is so heavy I don't have ramps to put it in a truck. Somtimes its just as fast with the 10 ft wheelbarrel.

    I have a Kawasaki Mule with a dump bed. Its' great. Have had to resort to loading and sliding a large tarp in some hard to get to areas where the 'ol wheel barrow isn't hauling enough...
