Potential problems in moving Organic material
Traditional methods for moving mulch, compost and other organic materials are typically reliant on using labourers with barrows, or with machinery such as a bobcat or halitrax. The most common problems with using the above methods are:

Labourers:
- Unreliable, slow average spread of ½m3 of product per hour
- Often require micro-management
- Strict health and safety requirements applying to many sites
- Requires greater overheads (vehicles/ACC/supervisors etc)
- Difficult access slows productivity further
- Time required to spread materials often takes days rather than hours

Bobcat/Halitrax:
- Often will require labourers to finish and tidy
- Increased health and safety risks
- Planting must be completed after mulch is spread. Productivity when planting through mulch reduces significantly
- Weather dependent
- Mulch spread by machinery often results in significantly more material being used due to the inability to spread accurately
- Ground is compacted through continual tracking
