    Hello - I am a co-owner in an all female landscaping company. I am contemplating purchasing a Mulch Mule. Any thoughts, suggestions, what are the benefits?

    I was looking into the mulch mule....at $49000.00 that turned me away.

    Is there anything else out there like it that doesn't cost as much? From what I have seen the cost pays for itself?

    Well if you do ALOT of mulch jobs and can justify making such a big purchase, then yeah it will pay for itself pretty quickly. I would love to get something like this but on a smaller scale, wish they made one that held like 10 yards at most, just something to make life easier for us smaller guys and make more profit based on time.

    I was looking at the mini mule, it's about 36000 and does 15 yards.

    the mulch mule online says that its a greater investment and lower cost then a mulch blower. IMO I would take a Finn mulch blower any day instead of one of those.

    Mulch mules are more expensive than Finn Bark Blowers. We have a trailer mounted bark blower. Three guys can easily lay about 60 yds. of mulch in one days time. I wouldn't even consider a mule since we got the blower.

    From what I have heard and read the Finn Blower requires a lot more maintenance? Is that not true?
