    I think it's absolutely ********. If your gonna spend money like that, buy a mulch blower. :hammerhead:

    Good point But most people in this area don't like the blowers because it blows on the house and in the shrubs and a lot of my clients have delicate plants and very full beds were you have to spreed by hand.

    I agree, I saw it at a trade show, and it is ******** for the money. All it is, is a big trailer with a conveyer belt at the bottom that loads your wheelbarrows at one end. Your better off mouning a 2 yard sander on a flat trailer, filling it with mulch, taking the spinner off, and parking your wheelbarrow under it. (if that would work, probably not, but its the same stupid idea as the mulch mule.)

    I have a "mulch mule" and his name is Jose!

    i wasnt gonna say anything but i agree, for 50k you could have a finn 302 plus a new dump trailer plus a truckloader leaf sucker

    the mulch blower on idle isnt that bad on dust

    and i reallly doubt youre gonna make your 50k back before it breaks or wears out......it only has 1 year warrenty and if a tire on a rim costs 600 bucks, then imagine what repair work is gonna cost!

    but if it was given to me, then i might find myself using it..

    I looked at one last year and IMO wayyyy toooo PRICEY! A nice couple year old 1 ton and a handfull of employee's would be a hell of a lot cheaper. Maybe if it were in the 15k range then maybe worth it imo.

    two years back i met the owner of Mulch Mule and boy does he think that machine is the whip. He has a landscape company in Ohio and all his croney that work for him were trying to tell us how great it was. Even if i had a extra 50 grand sitting around it would be the last thing i would buy
