Do you guys burn the brush on site, ship it off site, or grind it?

OK, I need more help with this dredging issue, we have looked at several mud mat companies and the issue there is we are talking 15-25K for mats, none want to rent them for short amounts of time they all want you to purchase or rent for 90 days or longer.

I know this might seem redneck, but the lake is super low now, what if we laid down a road-way of 3/4" plywood, used a single axle dump and a mini excavator to load it out. Do you think that if would work?

I have some helo landing mats that I've cut down for working in wet soils.

This here http://www.lislesurplus.com/F/Fiberg...over-military/

I just took a few pieces, cut them down for the job and it worked great.

This may help but I'm still a believer that you need a dragline or skyline to get the job done in a reasonable amount of time.

Mats would be cheaper than all the 3/4" ply you would destroy. My 3500lb ex cracks it on a grass lawn, i can't imagine a truck on mud. Can you rent mats from another contractor in the area?

I still think best option would be a long reach marsh excavator.

Look at building your own mats or suck it up and rent for 90 days
