depends, are you taking care not to damage the wood for further processing, or are you just scrubbing everything. If just tearing through, I'd say a between 1-3 acres/day

953 is a real track loader not a compact track loader that would be running a brush cutter .

really depends on how big and dense the stumps are. with the 3 year old material that's grown up that will be the aggravating stuff to yank up as theres nothing to grab and it will just leave little stobs sticking up everywhere. Im gonna be more conservative and say a acre a day if I was bidding it. This includes stumping, raking, piling, and time for burning. you will have to run over it with the loader and turn the dirt to cut off all those roots and stobs sticking up so it looks decent.

I was thinking the same dirtman. I figured 1-2 acres per day. That covers grubbing stumping and burning. Thanks for the help guys.

Not to start something, but the operator has a lot to do with speed and quality.
