I have never seen a to big dozer for anything yet. I know they cost more, though I would look for an older D-6 so much more you can do with it than those little putter ones. Now If you chip it, could you hire a tree guy with the big chippers? They could put the whole tree through or at least the rest minus the trunk. Would save time and accomplish your goal without burning. Just if the surrounding timber is just as bad and you start burning if it got away from you the fines could easily cost several times more than the cost of the guy chipping for you. Just a thought.

I would have to wait until next year to get some more funds to buy a D6, but something to think about. Our forest is pine and spruce here and I would guess average tree diameter to only be 16 inches. So even when we rented the 6" chipper, you make great strides in mess cleanup without burning, but it was hard to tow to the areas I needed to. That's how I got on the thought of a tracked vehicle with a chipper on the back. Whole tree chipper are huge, if I was to hire someone for what I couldn't chip with a 8" pto chipper, I would still have to make a chipping deck area with a tracked loader/dozer to setup the whole tree chipper and skid the logs to the larger chipper, but again this idea is something to consider.
