Thanks Tnhunter, Its been alot of work and experimentation. Im now somewhat figuring out what works and what doesnt.Ive done soil tests and so forth. I modified a brush cutter on a weedeater and added a skill saw blade to do my clearing. I can clear nearly an acre in a few hours. Its been alot of work but it brings me alot of joy. If i were doing it solely for profit, it would all die on me before i turned around, you know how it is.
