    If you were talking about a pickup truck, then yes maybe it would be easier on the ground. But from a dump truck, it is much easier to push/scoop it off into the barrows. Happy mulching!

    wow your charging $45 per man hour for spreading mulch!
    I know the industry perhaps standard is $50 man hour but come around my neck of the woods to the richest towns in the state of Mass and i don't know of too many people charging that much. I have a few customers that I charge that amount but most I charge closer to $35-40 man hr.
    People like my company but there's so much damn competition around here everyone eating eachother up!!!
    For someone starting out its been really tough around my kneck of the woods.
    I should come live where you get $45 man hour for just dirty work man i'd love that, even skilled pruners aren't making that where im from!
