    Could rent a machine but was hoping not to incur the cost.

    two things come to mind-

    1. do you expect someone to help you for free?

    2. why didn't you figure in the cost of a rental for a job that has 87 yards of material?

    Certainly not for free, willing to pay contactors cost for goods and services. I'm out of time and need to out source this work. Any bids??

    You might have considered a mulch blower. The guy who is local to me says he can blow topsoil too(providing it has been very dry), we I have never seen it done but if he commits to getting it done I don't care if he uses a wheelbarrow it's not my headache anymore. We have used him for difficult access mulching and I have to say it beats the hell out wheelbarrows, there was enough room in the deal to make a little $ for just arranging it.
