An extension of the sideline clearing. Just guessing since I haven't measured it exactly, but in this area, we cleared an are that was about 1500-2000' long by about 20-40' deep in about 8 hours. We took down many trees that were 6-8" in diameter and over 20' tall in those areas to really open the side of the fairway as well.

Here are couple trees that had fallen down and that we ground up to open up the side of the fairway. The only other option the golf course had to clear and chip the trees was to drive trucks out on the course (while rutting it up severly), and process everything by hand.

Some more side line clearing along a fairway towards a tee.

tss- I haven't got a plow for the 450. Starting to go after some snow plowing for malls, residential complexes, and other large facilities. Might as well start this side of the business now- I hate being bored

krazy- We should be getting some more clearing and grading pics this week. I have another 2 weeks on site right now- they just added to the budget since they liked the results of all the work so much.

Dirtman- ya, I hear you. Clearing can get old pretty quick. That's why I love jobs like this were I get to switch things up and really show what else we are capable of other than just grinding brush up.

Like I've said before, I'm just glad people can get some ideas from the pics and jobs that I post. I know I receive a lot of inspiration from everyone on this board as well
