    I took out some evergreens (junipers) about this same size. Just took the skid and drove into them and lifted. Teeth on bucket grabbed the shrubs, lifting action pulled them out. shook most of the soil back into place, tamped down and sodded. off to the next job. I agree with daveyo, no more than ten minutes of work. longer to drive there than to do the work

    I agree. I think it has gotten me more jobs. I took out four large yews that had been in front of my house for probably twenty years or so and it took maybe half an hour at most which was with a chain, shovel, and my truck. The bobcat would work just fine to. 100 at most I would charge.

    How far is your dump and what will they charge? I would probly pull it for 75 then dump it for 50 so 125. If a client then probly a 100
