Do you have an overgrown property or need to clear land for a future development site? Land can become overgrown with brush and trees for a multitude of reasons. It has been a long-time belief that clearing land is only something that can be tackled by large contractors that have specialized equipment. This is not true – as skid-steers and heavy-duty attachments allow private landowners and contractors to take on land clearing jobs.
If you have recently used a mulcher attachment to clear a significant amount of brush or trees from a piece of property, you likely have an abundance of fresh wood chips on your hands. While it is possible to recycle or otherwise dispose of the chips, that isn't the only option. Whether you've finished a large-scale public land project or have cleared away unwanted brush on your own property, there are several possible uses for the resulting wood chips to consider.
There are many ways to make money with a Skid-Steer or Compact Track Loader (CTL). There is the typical "hook on a bucket and start moving dirt" type of work, or hauling rock, or just general material handling. This is the arena Skid-Steers started and has saved contractors countless trips with a wheelbarrow and shovels.
There are many ways to clear land - mulchers, bulldozers, excavators, chainsaws, and burning vegetation. There are advantages to each style of land clearing, but all come with their own set of unique challenge. The most popular land clearing techniques include:
