lantana and land clearing

Hello all , I am new to this forum so be gentle .HA.... I need some woody weeds cleared and a bit of earthworks ( lantana , wattle , and general regrowth ) done . I have 50 acres near fernvale QLD . I had a look on gumtree and saw this bloke called buckshot dozer hire . The machine looks like a good size not to disturb the ground too much and seems like he knows what he is doing . Has anyone had experience with this buckshot dozer hire in SEQ ? The rate seems to good to be true for a bulldozer , but i know from growing up on a farm this is the best machine to use for this type of job as a bobcat is too small etc... Any feedback is appreciated .

Hi Samsmith,

Basically, you should ask around. I'm in SE Queensland and the last contractor I had, two years ago, charged me $120.00 an hour Plus travelling time. This was for a D9 equivalent dozer (Terex), using a cutter bar and ripper. I couldn’t see what this contractor is charging, but personally, I would ask around in the district for recommendations. Sometimes cheaper is not better. They will also need to check the clearing regulations with DPI, as the fines for clearing protected forestry are very severe.

Regards,
Barb
