    One of our condo associations finally decided to mulch all their flowerbeds this weekend. Were looking at around 40-50 yards. Due to the time restraints I would like to get this done in one day so we are renting a smaller Finn bark blower. The guy said a guy or two will be able to keep up with it as far as keeping it full by shoveling, we'll see. He also said 40-50 yards will take roughly 6-7 hrs to spread and use about 30% less mulch vs. doing it the traditional way. Anyone else ever use a bark blower? I would like to get some other experiences with it before I actually use it. I'm hoping it works as he discribed, at 550.00 a day it better do something,lol. To buy this particular unit we're looking at 24k!
