Like AEL said. Really depends on what finished product he expects. Unless you use a really large mulcher that is capable of subsurface mulching the area will not be suitable for planting.

They plan to build a home on the rear 1.5/acres. (That's the highest ground). The property was cleared prolly in the last 10years or so. Not many large trees, most are along the tree line on the right side, so they will stay.

I was skeptical of using a dozer, since we have been getting rain atleast 2 days a week. Didn't want to create a mess like the last job I subbed out to a dozer guy. Although I plan to run the equipment this time.

I was thinking use the mulcher head to shred the trees/brush that way it can help dry up the property and if need bee go over it with my bushhogg on my tractor.

A Dozer has a Root Rake, which also aids in knocking down trees.

Stuff looks big for a mulcher. What do you do after mulching though? I'd rake it all out with a 120-160 ex or doze it but I think you can conserve a lot more top soil excavating than dozing

A dozer or excavator is going to leave a huge mess to haul off or burn. Best way to do this is to turn it all into mulch with a forestry mulcher.
with a 90 - 100HP mulcher, you can clear everything there at a rate of 2acres/day, with some experience. Better plan on 4 -5 days if you have no experience on one. Your bobcat dealer should have one of the big Bobcat track machines set up with a forestry package and a mulcher.
I would do it for $1500/acre with a mulcher. Deduct the mulcher rental and fuel from the total price charged, and you will have a tidy profit for 3 or 4 days work.
