For that much it just doesn't seem logical, unless you had lots and lots of jobs to pay for itself. The video showed it unload out the back also....I wonder if you could run rock through it. The video showed a leaf loader hooked up to it....this is like a $10,000 option. I seen one at the GIE a couple years ago. The loader itself is only something like $5K.jmurphy said:SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!! $46,000 thou.
Well I agree with you but for one thing...kc2006 said:A local lco has two of those, doesn't make sense to me. I mean its great that it fills the wheelbarrel fast for you but still alot of labor spreading the mulch. This year I'm contacting another company that has a mulch blower. He charges $18 a yard for labor, I charge $40 a yard labor, I make 22 bucks a yard and giving me extra time to do more profitable jobs, priceless.

To me, these things are priceless. When I have the volume to support this machine, I will certainly invest in one. If you cant see the value in it, then that is your issue.
Look at the companys that are using them. Do you really think they dont know what they are doing? I wont name names, but there is at least one top 100 company using these things. I guarantee if the numbers didnt work out, they wouldnt own one.
