    Andrew, looks good. Question, what is the benfit for the cranberry bog owners? Is this on the back side of bog? Is it area to be developed into a bog?

    Also thanks for the help on the 30ac job Ill have to tel you the story sometime you'll get a good chuckle out of how dumb people are.

    keep up the good work

    The benefit is they get air movement, more light, and less seeding on the bogs. This particular area was on a sand bank the bog owner is going to mine out, so it was more of a straight land clearing project than a "vegetation management" project.

    I'm interested in hearing this story...

    How long did that take to clear? Would throwing a bucket on the hoe and then clearing that way been faster?

    Coopers, that hillside (plus double the area behind the machine), took me 8 hrs to clear. If I went the bucket route, by the time I had finished clearing, stacking, grinding (we can't burn here), and then smoothing out the ground frim ripping everything out, I would easily have had double to triple the time involved in that project. Not to mention the cost would have been very high since I would have had to bring a grinder in.

    Sean- I love our "tropical" winter. Just picked up another big clearing project that we are starting next week since the weather has been so cooperative.
