    How Do You Like Your T190? We Are Using A Takeuchi 130 Right Now But Considering Buying Either A T 190 Or T300 Bobcat.

    OMG! your crazy. For a whole trailer of mulch, I'd have it blown in. Find a company with a bark blower and theres no labor.

    I like the T190......compact size has come in handy several times. I like the TL130.......I don't know the #s of one vs the other.......I would love to have a TL150 but there just isn't the use.

    Not all mulching was done at once. Lots of little change orders took place on this job making things difficult. Without them and looking back I could cut probably a week off of this job.......then again I made $ off of the change orders so no complaints.

    We mulched, sod was installed, mulch and touch up again. Rain here and there washing out areas. It was actually handy having it on site in bulk. One thing I will do different is plant the Liriope after I mulch. Where I worked in the past we always mulched last but it would be much faster if we reverse that being that it consumed too much time mulching around them and finding them after you buried them. I ordered 50yds, they gave me 60 so we mulched heavier. You're right........in the future, depending how the job is coming together, I may have a truck come in and blow it if need be.

    btw........why sell the TL130? I'm just as good either way but love the pilot controls they have.

    blown mulch sucks (here at least) they have to use little ground stuff and it doesn't last a year. we use shredded pine which will normally last 3 years

    -Hey Brandon.....interesting on the pine. Here it is custom to mulch every spring. Is that not the case in your area?

    not if we don't have to. places where needed yes, but not a complete remulch. eventually it'll get too thick and of course the plants will drown

    Gotcha. We do thin applications of around 1". On occassion you may come across a property were large amounts have been applied and it is necessary to remove. Especially trees as people get real happy with the mulch on them. Remove 6"+ of mulch (sometimes Ivy) off of the crown of a tree and if you listen closely you probably hear it take a breath of relief!

    The 130 Is A Friend Of Mine Who Is No Longer In The Buisiness. I Pay Him Good Rent For The Machine. We Do Alot Of Hardscaping And The Pallets Come In At 3500# Some Times. My Personal Machine Is A New Holland Tractor Tc40d Which Will Only Lift 1500#. I Rented A T190 One Time And It Moved A 400# Pallet On And Off My Trailer. The T300 Will Pick Up About 7000# And That Might Come In Handy Sometimes. I Love The Electric Joysticks Though. If I Buy One It Will Definately Have The Sjc. The 130 Has Electric 2 Speed Trans While Bobcat Does Not. Bobcat May Not Need It But The Mud We Have Been In Even In Low The 130 Almost Want Pull Itself Sometimes.
