TurCre(5 SoCentral NE)April 1, 2014

Since I was unable to find a local source for pine bark suitable for container mixes and seeing what appears to be a very large number of people in the same boat, I invented something. The device I came up with will turn nugget style pine bark mulch into pieces the size of a dime and smaller with the use of a simple shop tool that most people already own. With my device and a electric drill you can convert 4 cubic ft. of unusable pine bark into pine park suitabe for a soilless mix in under 20 minutes with minimum physial effort. First would you buy such a device? Second what would you pay for such a device? Just trying to get a feel if there is a market for something like this. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

I should have also stated the device will have a long lifespan, take up less than 2 square feet of space, weighs less than 30lbs, and would certainly be under $75.

I don't think there will be a big demand for this application alone, unless you find other uses for it too.

If I had to do it, I would runn the chunky nugget thru a shredder/chipper Or use my lawn mower.
