    Got Walker Z's Bobcat 48" WB, Troy Bilt 33" WB. Renting equipment is no problem just can't decide what would be best.

    Hey Rich, its up to 4 ft in some areas alot of it has fallen over, just got to high. Tx definatly won't be a cheap one, the guy understands its quite a job, grass needs to be hauled away too!!!!

    Rent a Bush Hog and chop it all down then go over it with the Walker and bag it all up.

    I'm thinking bush hogging, then getting it into piles and sucking it up with my leaf loader. Does the bush hog just cut or will it chop it up a little too????

    It will chop it up, but not as fine as a regular mower.
