Im in the process of building a house on a 1.5 acre lot. They are only clearing a small portion of it. The remainder of the land is covered in think brush. I was considering buying a John Deere 1025 with back hoe and front loader subcompact tractor but would rather not spend the money. As a test I just bought the Stihl Kombi system with the Hedge Trimmer and Pruning Saw. While that will work for cutting the brush down to the ground, I need a way of ripping the trunks / roots out of the ground. There is nothing on the land with a trunk thicker than 2 inches. What would you recommend I use to till the land so that these weeds / bushes never grow back. Once cleared I will be replanting trees and covering the ground with wood chip.
