What To Expect When Clearing Land In Austin Texas
Land clearing in Austin Texas can be a bit of an overwhelming task at first. We are here to make that job a little bit easier.
First off when it comes to clearing land in Austin, Texas you need to have the proper crew and equipment. Always vet your contractors, check their reviews, make sure they are heavily insured and have the right equipment for the job.
As Central Texas’ top rated land clearing company we make sure we tick all of these boxes for you.
When clearing small lots in Austin Texas you can use smaller skid steer type mulchers. These machines excel in less than 1 acre jobs with trees generally under 10 inches in diameter. In the world of skid steer mulchers there are basically two classes. High flow and low flow skid steer mulchers. Almost never does it make sense to use a low flow skid steer to clear land. They do not provide enough hydraulic horsepower to grind trees and usually leave behind a mess. High flow skid steer machines do a better job but need to have the right tractor and mulcher combo. Brands like Kubota, John Deere, and Bobcat all make 90-100 horsepower machines that can clear decently but not well. Most contractors running these will also use a mulching head that has carbide hammers vs knives. This again slows production down.
We run the ASV 120 with a Denis Cimaf head. This is THE BEST skid steer mulching combo on the market. While the daily rate is more than the above units, our production is nearly double and leaves behind a much nicer mulch.
Now when you get into jobs greater than an acre this is where the bigger machines come into play. If you have a project greater than an acre or a project where larger trees need to be taken down we are the company for you. With the most diverse fleet of machines in Austin Texas we can handle any sized job you might need taken care of.
