Check my game plan.

Not looking for pricing. This is for a customer/developer that I do good bit of work for. They want to clean up the front portion of this property, due a store being built on a small portion that has already been completely cleared. We just clearing out the underbrush and trash/debris. (People have been dumping trash in some areas for a few years).
Also removing approx 300' of chain link fence.(being recycled).

Plan is too bring in a 30yd dumpster to pile all the trash in. Then use my tractor to bushhog as much as possible, then hire my buddy to come in w/ his CTL and timber axe to do a final run through for the stuff too big for my cutter. (Knocking out anything 4-6" dia & under. (His price to do this was less than what a week rental of the machine/mulcher would cost me). Plus he has lots of seat time running it.

Total area to be cleared is approx 8 acres.
Some areas are thicker than the pics. Used to a golf course back in the 90s.

looks like there's already a bobcat and dozer on site.

are you concerned about brush hogging the trash that on site into lots of small pieces that will be impossible to clean up?

That equipment is on the site where they are building a dollar general. 90% of the trash is all in one open area, that was easy to get too by vehicle. Shingles, furniture etc.

I'd go for it. Its going to suck brush hogging 8 acres where you can't see anything, hopefully you've got a pretty ugly brush hog, as I think it will take a pretty good beating

That's a good job to be on.. will lead to more work. Your plan is solid. I can't speak about mowing in muddy conditions (can't remember what mud is like in Texas) but I think your plan makes sense. You can get a lot of little stuff in containers and then push it down with your FEL. You might have your buddy knock some of the big stuff down while you mow so you can mow over it and make it look more uniform. When given the opportunity, I like to mow over where I mulch and since you are going to mow anyway, it will look that much cleaner... and so will your pictures for reference.

No burning allowed. Most of it is thick brush. A Dozer would just lay it over.

We average a lot clearing once a month apr-sept. We would be doing it the same way. however I'm in a city so its usually .5-3 acres. just don't rush and you will be fine.
We typically get the trees out first as said earlier.
