For any construction project, it’s important to be able to start with a clear foundation. Land clearing can be an arduous task, but with the right equipment, you and your crew can work with more efficiency and ease.
Here at Papé Machinery Construction & Forestry, we make it easy for you to start with a clean slate! What are some of the best land clearing tools? In this edition of the Papé Machinery Construction & Forestry blog, let’s take a look at 5 excellent land clearing tools for your construction and forestry projects.
Mulching tractors are excellent land clearing tools. This powerful and heavy-duty type of machinery helps to chew up small trees and underbrush. Bush, trees, heavy branches, grasses, and any leftover vegetation are turned into mulch. Mulching is a specific type of land clearing that actually leaves you with an environmentally friendly and biodegradable top-layer of ground covering.
Here at Papé Machinery Construction & Forestry, we offer a variety of different mulching tractors, such as the FTX150-2 mulching tractor, FTX200 mulching tractor, and the FTX300 mulching tractor.
Skid steers or compact track loaders (CTLs) can be used with attachments to help with vegetation management or clearing. Take a look at our wide selection of skid steers and compact track loaders. The next few must-haves on our list are actually some of our most popular and helpful skid steer attachments, so be sure to read on to see how you can best outfit your skid steer for your land clearing needs.
Bull Hog Attachment
When attached to a skid steer or excavator, bull hog attachments help clear trees along with hard-to-reach spaces. Take a look at this video to see this process in action. Here at Papé Machinery Construction & Forestry, we carry a wide variety of different skid steer attachments, such as the bull hog hydraulic machine attachment and the bull hog skid steer attachment.
Trim, cut, and clear overgrown trees with tree shears, a common and easy-to-use attachment for your skid steer or CTL. Take a look at the types of tree shears we carry here at Papé Machinery Construction & Forestry.
