Going to use some serious equipment
« on: August 13, 2019, 08:04:53 AM »
Mulcher at work.  I'm going have this guy clear all trees and brush about 15 feet on each side of a trail between two areas of my land.  Currently you can snake a pickup threw the trail but your mirrors are in jeopardy.

Nice. That is what I was doing in Effie last weekend. I don't have a mulching head though. Mine is a rotary brush hog. I can get up to a 4-5" tree taken care of though.
Hey look your bobber is up!

Yes Glenn, I have the ASV also. It is the RC60. I have had it for 6 years now. Bought it used. Only had 460 hours on it. The had the bucket, snow blower, forks and the brush hog. I got them all.

Very nice I'd say.  That's quite a pile of toys you got there.  I'm not sure the brush blade would be big enough.  The trail is currently just wide enough to squeeze through and even at that there is a lot of branches and brush dragging on the side and top of the pickup.  The trail is 500 yards long.  So, by the math that's roughly an acre of trees ranging from 4 - 12 inches most are 30-40 feet tall.  Plan is to use a track hoe to move all rocks outside the mulching zone, fell top and skid all marketable timber to a field, fell and mulch tops, smaller trees, brush and stumps.  I don't know what it will cost but I'm sure it will be a pretty big hit to the pocket book.  The alternative would be to fell all trees and move them off the cleared area (this would require a feller buncher to set them down in the existing woods which would create huge piles and lots of damaged trees.  After this a cat would dig and pile stumps.  If anyone has seen this operation, it creates a big mess and the stumps will be in piles for the rest of my life.  I was temped to take the cheaper way but I figured that after a few years I would get sick of the mess and pay to clean it up and bury the stumps.   :bonk:

I took a few photos on Wednesday.  I couldn't be there yesterday so I hope it's pretty much done.  It's taking a little longer due to all the rocks that needed to be cleared.
