Land Clearing Services:
The "Brushcat" (bush-hog) attachment:
This attachment is used for clearing field-grass, kudzu, briers and thickets, small sapling trees, and heavy brush areas. It can help you reclaim an over-grown pasture, retention pond, empty lot, or any area that is beyond the capability of a regular lawn mower or even a tractor and bush-hog. Being on a tracked Bobcat, this combination can clear swampy / low-lying areas, ravines / ditches, and other areas where a tractor may get stuck.
Customer Project: Kudzu-covered woods with undergrowth and vines
Before - Brushcat has just made its initial pass
During - scraping ground clean to remove kudzu roots
After - fresh pine straw throughout
Forestry Mulcher attachment
This attachment is used for clearing densely wooded areas, with it capable of mulching down whole standing trees up to 8" in diameter. It also excels at kudzu and other difficult vines and briers. It leaves a mulch by-product that looks great and is much more efficient than cutting by hand to clear an area. These costs would include the labor of several people who after chainsawing, would also have to haul-off and dispose of the tree debris in a chipper. With this machine, one man can clear up to four acres of brush per day. Being on a tracked Bobcat, this combination can clear swampy / low-lying areas, ravines / ditches, and other difficult areas with ease. For creating walking trails or thinning dense woods, this is a great solution!
