    Hello all,
    Im looking it see what everyone uses to load mulch into wheel barrels. As we're getting these bigger commercial accounts, i have realized shoveling ISNT going to cut it! I think something smaller than a skid steer would work... What do you guys use???
    Looking for something that will fit in my enclosed trailer preferably..

    Your walk-behind loaders, be it tires or tracks and on this size I would highly recommend tracks (since the tires are so small). Their bucket capacity is about 1 - 1.5x that of a heaping wheelbarrow. Think self-propelled wheelbarrow with strong hydraulic capabilities.

    As mentioned above Dingo. Bobcat also has a couple as well with multiple attachments.
