    I know you are using what you have equipment wise as much as possible , but a CTL and a rotary cutter on front is what I use now in spots like this rather than my tractor and bush hog. You probably will not cut any faster but it is much more comfortable than the tractor and I mulch the trees with the ex mounted mulcher as I go. The cutter for skid costs less than 4000.00 dollars and works great on standard flow.

    How do you plan to pick up trash and get the fencing out?

    Not to mention a good case of tractor neck from backing into areas you have to. Speaking from experience, that does creep up on you as you get older.

    Using what you have for now it what makes you money not what someone has to use.Plan sound okay.Looks to be a little wet.For the bigger trees tree puller might work on down the road some time,cutting out the other mans machine.Still have to remove those,so probably a wash.Good luck

    The muddy road from the workers on the other site driving back and forth. Plus it had just rained for two days.

    Looks like they wanna do a Lil negotiating on the price. I came in at $9500 they wanna be at $8k.

    I may come down and have them pay/order the dumpsters.

    2x dumpsters would run me around $800.

    8k is fair. Rent a Ctl with mower. No real need for a mulcher I can see

    Run your tractor over it to make it look better if you want

    I figure.i can 60 % of it easily with a tractor.

    Plan is to let my brother start bushhogging the open areas while a I run around with the CTL and grapple piling up the debris. Then use the CTL to do a perimeter sweep before I dig in with the tractor.
