Hi, My name is Ken Heath and I couldn't find any information on Yahoo about what bulldozer is strong enough to remove an average-sized stumps? First, I sold trees to logger company 2 years ago so I could use the fund to start up new business and it is starting to make some progress right now that I want to expand my business, but it would require more land. I am currently using 13 acres out of 54 acres and I want to add 5 more acres for next 2 years with the possibility of booming into the whole 54 acres within 7 years. First, I rented a D5 bulldozer for $3,000 a week and I did 2 acres by myself the first 3 days and then blade cracked. I got a buddy who is a welder and he said it was clearly a bad welding job using very thin rod instead of thick, which would have hold so picture was taken. After a long battle with renting company, who wanted me to pay for the damage of $7,000 (blade & track), I decided to hire an attorney and won the case in court to get full refund & security deposit. Well, you get the picture... So with time-consuming process of court, I was forced to hire someone to clear my land because I couldn't tend to my property like I wanted due to court process and few paperwork for the business. The job of clearing 8 acres was $9,600. But that was 2 years ago and I am now on a tight budget and I was thinking of buying old bulldozer for around $3,500 to $6,000 and clear up as much of land as I can with the strength of small bulldozer since I know it probably wouldn't be able to pull out a very large stump that is as big as my SUV. Then I could resell it and get most of my money back. Finally, now here is the question... what size of small bulldozer will be strong enough to clear land at slow pace? I can go as slow as 20-30 stumps a week, but I don't mean to say I am willing to buy a very, very small bulldozer. Perhaps something with 4 cyl and diesel preferred. Finally, I would also need to use the bulldozer for grading/leveling and develop 300ft ATV Drag racing track. Thank in advance for answering my question!
