Mulch Mate Mulch Delivery System
For you landscaping Pros who play with a lot of mulch, check out this new mulch-spreading addition for your existing truck. The Mulch Mate, by automating the process of loading mulch into a wheelbarrow, virtually eliminates the need to hire some guy to stand in the back of the truck shoveling mulch into wheelbarrows. Instead, with the Mulch Mate, you can put that guy to work on the ground. Best of all, with a freed-up employee and a system that loads up a wheelbarrow in about 3 seconds, you’re bound to increase your overall profit margins.
How Does It Work?
Basically, the Mulch Mate is an automated mulch delivery system that attaches to the back of your existing truck. At the push of a joystick, it dispenses mulch directly into a wheelbarrow or container. The process is really as simple as driving your wheelbarrow up under the chute, pressing a button, and 3 seconds later, wheeling off the next load of mulch to be spread.
The company’s pitch revolves around time and money management. If you can eliminate the need for someone to stand around in the bed of a truck, waiting around to shovel the next load of mulch, you can put him to work with the actual mulching.
This should significantly speed up operations, allowing you to fit more work into the course of a day. Mulch Mate also claims that this system will save you from worker fatigue and workmen’s comp claims.
But wait, there’s more. Naturally, folks will wonder if this sort of device will inhibit the use of the rest of the truck. But, since it pretty much exists solely on the back gate, users will still be able to access the truck bed. Plus, because the Mulch Mate includes a lockable tool basket atop the mulch reservoir, hand tools and other incidentals can store neatly on the back of the truck. This frees up valuable truck bed space.
We have no word, at this point, what adding a Mulch Mate to your landscaping arsenal will run, or when it will become available for purchase. To inquire about these sorts of details, you can contact the company directly from their website.
