Well, right now I haven't come up with anything better than the D4C I originally looked at. I will keep looking though. But, I was thinking if I got the D4 then I could do the undergrowth clean-up and leave the larger stuff to the other guy. When I looked at the work to be done I figured (my estimate) that it would take about 8-10 hours. Based on what I've had others do for me. I figured $1000.00 - $1200.00. The owner/operators estimate was 2 days and $3000.00. using a D5 Cat. So, basically it came out 2-3 times what I thought it should. That's $150.00 an hour for a 10 hour day. I thought that was a little high. I know, if you buy one and have to repair it you might appriciate the $3000 for two days. But, buying my own, I could do it when I could as needed. Then leave him the big stuff for later. My analogy may be flawed. But, even if I spent $6000.00 on repairing it that would only be 4 days work and I'd still have it the rest of the year to use whenever I needed it.
Any thoughts,comments or ideas?

I have taken down many a large tree with my D3B with 6 way blade. You can circle the tree with the blade ripping out all the roots and then easy to push over--even had one 16 inch tree blow over from the wind while cutting the roots (thank God in the right direction)
