thats all the customer wanted...kinda weird, but o well it was a good two days of land/brush clearing...dont have a brushhog, and never used one before ...what would that attachment do to this type of area?...would the brushhog be the attachment to rent here?

i just used the teeth to backblade and make piles, then hauled it to the back of his property...

That was a job made for a brushhog. Mow it down first, then clean it up. About 40-50% reduction in debris on a good job like that. Makes it a lot easier.

I agree on that, makes fast work of it too,

A bush hog would leave all that crap in little inconvenient sized pieces, not to mention all the roots. You couldn't walk barefoot through that mess after bush hogging it.

The bucket takes it all leaving just the top soil. Looks ready for seed.

Bush hogs are for fields, not back yards.

S S what, just skim it with the bucket and remove it from the site, then stock pile and compost it. Or you could just take the harley rake to it.

I usually bust everything up with a bushhog first.
The pieces will be as small as you need them to be.Just run the Bushog over several times.
Then use the bucket too pull up most of the roots.

I do probally 10 to 30 jobs a year like this.
My bushog usually cuts my dumpster usage in half.

It is much faster just too bucket the mess up for sure, but the dumpsters get full much faster.

I can understand it if you're using dumpsters. I was thinking of a burn pile. It's a trade off. The bush hog would certainly chop things up to reduce volume, but if you just use the loader, the plant helps you pull up the roots. If you chop it up, the roots tend to require more tedious attention to remove.

You gotta admit, that "after" pic looks pretty clean.

And the harley rake ain't a bad idea either. But like I said, it looks like this guy cleaned it up nicely without one.

I agree.
If you are going too burn it then do not mulch it or bushhog.
I actually just dig up 6 too 12 inches of the whole property and then rake the roots and small stuff out with my bucket teeth and the Harley rake.
Here is a pic with our wonderful soil after I am done.
It looked like the property next door before I started.

That looks pretty sharp. You can tell it's Georgia although the dirt here looks similar.

The guy who started the thread was working in a little richer soil it looks like. I've had pretty good results in areas where there is a lot of decayed vegetation or silt deposits, like a low area or creek flood plain, as far as the brush and trees coming up. In that red clay, though, it's a lot harder to get the roots out.

I am amazed at the dirt them guys from up North get to work in.
