    whats the best way to clear out sticker bushes, overgrown junk basically. I was first thinking a chainsaw and a brush cutter then a bobcat came to mind. Should I try to kill alot of it first or what? I will cut the thick **** out but what about the rest....... I am looking for suggestions.......Thanks

    If your talking about a dozen or more covering say about 1000 sq ft then I'd use a hedge clipper to pare them down to size and finish off with a lopper and hand saw. Use an axe and good heavy spade for the stumps. If your talking a whole field of the stuff and it's well established, use a skid stear with a clam shell bucket.
