Got ask to clear 850' of a fence line and a couple of small trees. Also there's a lot of blood weeds too. Need to clear about 4 feet behind the fence. What would you charge?

Anyway to get a skid steer back there? I could bring my machine with grapple bucket and rip that crap out. I would prolly be in the $1500-$1800 range.

If the mini skid steer is 4ft or less I can get it back there. If not I'm screwed. I'll have to do it by hand. But I was thinking about $1900 but I'm not of that much. Thanks buddy!!

i would take a section of fence down for the day, should be 4 or 5 1/2" nuts holding the fence to the pole, undo those and the fence should peel back, might be tough with all the garbage on top and the grass on the bottom, but it will come back then a fullsize skid steer will fit in through. even doing that job by hand you should be able to do it pretty easily by hand, with hedge trimmers and string trimmers, hedge trimmers for the stuff up high, then string trimmers for the stuff down low and chain saws for bigger stuff. i see this being a 1 day project max.

That's a lot of poison oak on the top of the fence. So do you think I should spray it first and wait until it dies then deal with it?
