We were up on our land for the long weekend and while we cleared about half an acre of land of the unwanted trees and brush that left about 15 more acres to go....SO we came to the conclusion that a small piece of equipment could get a lot more done than us. We know we could probably hire someone to do it and it would probably be done quicker and all but we want to actually do it ourselves. So the local equipment rental company has the following for rent: ER023 Daewoo 601, 1300 lb. rating ER024 Daewoo 1760 XL, 1700 lb. rating The skidsteers rent for $175/day and can be delivered to our land for a small fee. They also have a Kubota L-35, 35 HP Diesel with 24" Bucket and a JCB 214, 80 HP Diesel with 36" Bucket. We saw the skidsteers and the backhoe and the skidsteers seemed to be a lot more manageable to us... The largest tree we would be knocking down would be less than 5'' in diameter. So what do y'all think?
