    i have about 5000 sq ft of heavy brush (weeds bushes saplings small plants and such, pretty much like woods minus decent size trees)...... whats the best way to clear this much brush...
    and for labor plus use of basic power equipment weed trimmer, chain saw, trimmer
    how much per hour? is 75 an hour seem right(of course hourly rate would be higher depending on number of workers and any major equipment rentals)

    We're going to be doing a job that sounds very similar to this. I plan on using what ever, chain saws, loppers, hand snips, bow saw, bare hands. Basically anything that cuts

    What is the desired end product? thats the most critial thing a skidsteer with a brush mower will clear & mulch that in no time & could be rented for probably $ 500.00, clearing that by hand is a major job.

    Call the Fire Dept and have them do a grass fire practice to it.
