    Went out and measured the fence to be removed. Its approx 300ft of 12' high chainlink with brush/vines/trees grown through it.

    If the fence doesn't have to be reused, and doesn't need to be sold whole (or isn't in reusable condition), I cut it in manageable lengths. If I can mow along the base first, I do, Then, with some hand labor, I cut it off the posts and just pull whole sections down. Drag it out, let the vines and brush dry up some, then roll up and recycle.
    You might have a market for that 12' fence, though, if it's in good condition but chainlink, if it has tough vines growing through it, could become stretched or damaged when pulling it.

    300' probably isn't much for scrap but maybe you can sell it or take it back to your yard and cut up sections to make gabion/erosion waddles later on a bigger project where you have to disturb a creek.

    I would just mash it into the trailer and scrap it. Are you pulling the posts? The footings could be big since the fence is 12' tall. Figure cutting the fence and dragging it out, pulling the posts with the skid steer and a chain, cutting the posts off with a torch and hauling a load of concrete footings or bury them on site

    I was gonna suggest a mini and a thumb walking down the fence line and pulling it up. While bunching it at the same time.

    I was gunna go down the line and cut the fence away from the post, then drag it away. Then come back and pull the post out.
    All debris is being piled up in a small area that used to be a rock parking lot, to be disgarded latter. I figure with a mini-x w/ thumb i could lnock this out in a 8hr day or even less. He wants to just add this to the price of the clearing proposal. I was figuring an extra $1500 to remove the fence.
