    Would you have gone bigger or smaller or what you bought is just perfect for what you use it for?

    Id like to NOT use their little trailers for these, I want the unit and built onto a 14k bumper pull trailer that is about 20-24' long so we can pull the tractor or skid up on back and tow it around to load the mulch for sites.

    The 302 seems fine, and i believe theyre around 45-50k new. The 705 ive heard is 75k~, why is it nearly double? What part of mulch blowers costs so much money?

    almost 50k for a 32hp diesel engine, an "airlock", some hydraulics and a 1.5 yard hopper seem a little ridiculous, but hey im not the engineer!

    we have a brand new 302 and we back it up into alot of tight spots. if u mount on that big of trailer u might be limited to where you can park it.
