A question for those of you who have experience in this area. I mow a vacant property which has been neglected for a few years. The owner is eventually planning on occupying the house. There are multiple volunteer trees growing in the beds along the back and sides of the house, up to about 4 or 5 inches in diameter, and perhaps 20 feet tall. I normally don't do much of this type of stuff, but it is nearby, and with the mowing getting ready to shut down in a few weeks, I inquired as to whether the owner would be interested in having it cleaned up, but haven't heard back from her yet. Here is the quandary. If I don't find somewhere closer, I'll have to haul the debris about 60 miles round trip to my buddies farm. I'm guessing I'll have 3 loads on my 16 ft trailer, possibly 4. I can rent a chipper (6 inch) for about $120 for 4 hours from the local equipment rental. I figure it will cost me about $25 per load to haul to my friend's place, plus kill at least 1 1/2 hours per load. I'll still have to haul off the chips, if I use a chipper, and am wondering how much a 16 ft trailer of brush say 4 feet high will make after grinding? I know there are lots of variables, but I'm thinking if I can end up making only one disposal run, instead of 3, and possibly 4, I might be better off renting the chipper, not to mention saving myself a lot of work loading and unloading the brush. I have a full-size pickup, but with a short bed. Thanks for any input.
