    Those mules go for around $48k. Honostly I dont think theyre worth it at all. If you were to use it for leaves you could buy a nice dump trailer and leaf loader for less than 10k instead. Or if you were to use it for mulch, you could buy a nice Finn barkblower for alot less, instead of paying 50k for a Mulch Mule. Thats just my .02 cents.

    I agree, seems way over priced and I like to spend money =).

    The spare tire option they charge $450.00 for.

    If it cost say $25-35K it would be a little more reasonable but $50K is crazy.:dizzy: :hammerhead:

    And the $48K to $50K is without any of the options!

    Way over priced ... but I like the idea. :drinkup:

    If i understand the concept all that it will do is load the wheelbarrows or maybe do a tree ring if u can park the thing within like 12 feet of the tree. A bark blower however can reach 100 ft+. So I really don't see the advantage in this thing other than shaving a few seconds off of wheelbarrow loading time. Definitely not worth 50k not even 25k if you ask me.

    Way over priced for what ya get, IMO. 50k could buy you a lot of help for a few years and just do it the normal way.:weightlifter: It says you can use it for leaves as well but you can buy a hell of a leaf vac and a nice dump trailer for not even half the cost.

    I agree that it maybe over priced, but look at their website, they have lots of folks that have bought it.
