getting an Arbro 400 stroke harvester for the Bobcat E80 to cut and delimb the trees.
then a turbo saw for the Bobcat 331 to cut the small trees and the brush.
then use the Brushhound 30EX on the 331 to mow the area

the tree size difference between the Arbro 400 and 1000 is 4 inches and $25,000.

Not sure if you are still looking. I have a very slightly used Hakmet Arbro 400 i could be persuaded to sale.
