If you are talking about cougjf. I am not a rep.
If it's as great as some say, at least for larger companies. Why don't I see Brickman using the mule?
If it was that great Brickman would use them, after all it doesn't get much bigger then Brickman when it comes to a landscape maintenance company. Plus if any landscape maintenance company had the extra money to buy a few just to try it'd be Brickman. The fact that Brickman wont spend the money on this overpriced trailer and or truck tells me it ain't worth it. Plain and simple.
If you can afford a Mulch Mule ($65,000) I would say go one step further and get a Finn bark blower. My boss bought a Mulch Mule because it could load wheelbarrows with stone as well as bark. Problem is the Mule is overweight if you put 3 tons or more of material in it. It is supposed to hold 15 tons of bark but even dry bark mulch will put you way over the weight limit.
I think it is a big waste of money.
I see where the opposition comes from, but why do you think Groundmasters had a few, EMI has a few, etc?
walked to the bar.
had a drink.
picked up a chick.
looks like theres a new competitor http://www.finncorp.com/mts/
I'm sorry but '100 yard in 2 hours'.. that's a tractor trailer load of mulch.. I'm calling shenanigans
Thats the biggest line of Sh!t Ive ever heard. maybe it can unload 100yds in two hours running non stop. My loading system works way better.
3 Amegos with thre wheel barrows standing next to each other then fill them with the bucket of the bobcat. The bobcats way cheaper than a Mule, and can work 12 months of the year not 3
fine machine, doesn't work for my business. Mostly residential. Feel free to call me for details.

While I see it helping production, I dont know how it could out do a bark blower. If I took the bark blower away and gave the guys one of these they may slit my throat, yeah it helps loading, but you are still manually applying it to the gardens and patting it smooth which I think most of the time to install comes from. The guys in the testimonials complain of blocks in the bark blowers, well we very rarely get them, and when we do they are easy to fix. I would put my bark blower against these any time, and by a mulch mule if the guys with the mulch mule out worked the blower.
That being said, the other features it has are nice like like walking floor etc. Some of the companies in the testimonials are HUGE and I just wont believe that companies that do millions of dollars in revenue do not know that this machine does/doesn't make them money. So somehow they are making money with these machines and that means most anyone can. I wont sit here and say I know it all, but I do know a company that makes millions has quite a bit more figured out than I do =).
I would be interested in giving one a try.
