    Got hooked up with a real estate development company and made friends with the owner. I do bushhogging for them. Now the owner wants me to clear under brush on a piece of property he is selling personally. Area to be cleared is approx 6 acres. He is leaving big trees. Some of it i can bushhog, but after walking a good bit of it im pretty sure a tracked machine w/ mulcher head is the way to go. So what to yall think?

    Plus have a fence line that is 1800ft long to clear a path 10' wide or so from the fence. And utility right of way.

    A track machine with a forestry mower would work very well. The trees and brush dont look too large and the mower should have no problem. Just make sure the machine is a high flow. Our cats have 80 and 90 hp.

    you could probably mulch all of that. A skid steer muclher may have trouble with a few trees here and there but if it's mostly the underbrush, go for it. The fence line should be mulched. Take a chainsaw guy to get limbs from trees outside your 10' row so that it looks good and keeps the line even. Looks like your are making good contacts. Good luck.

    Rent a mulcher and go for it.

    If you have a cat in the area they rent newer machines with the 315 mulcher

    the T300 ill be renting is actually forsale, my buddy wants to update his rental fleet.

    still trying to figure out pricing on this job, due to being new at this type of work. really looking forward to getting some good time running the mulcher.
