In Oregon any practice of tree removal is industrial forest lands which would make it depending on the year of the machine subject for a complete cab change or not. Anything that enters the brush shovel, road builder, processor, forwarder, cat, skidder, Buncher are all subject to the rule.

Thank you for all of the advice. keep it coming. 8)

this is for personal use, not a business.
I will be 50 this year and my dad is 87. we plan to let the machines do most of the work for us. I will do any ground work that is needed.

we have 166 acres that consist of three tax lots zoned EFU ( Exclusive Forest Use ).
need to clear 14,000 feet for a perimeter fence line. the fence line will also be a fire brake. plan to fence each of the three lots
the land is hilly and wooded. on one tax lot we plan to open up for cattle pastures.
Just before we get the cattle we will have that lot re-zoned to allow livestock.

do you have any links to that info?

That has what you need, no matter if youíre thinning or not you want to comply with this last thing you want is the state down your throat.
As a side note have you set up the permits for the equipment to even touch the ground?

three years and still have not done it.
Life got in the way.

so back on it.
sounds like custom work is needed.
Bobcat 331, 8,000 pound
Bobcat E80, 18,000 pound

the good thing that happened during the 3 years is Weyerhaeuser marked my west border, and half of my north and south borders. they sold their land.
the other half's are not Weyerhaeuser property.

Look under heavy equipment armor or AFE. Advanced Forest Equipment. Same company. They are out of Idaho they specialize in excavator guarding and various other guarding also they where the pioneers of the disc mulcher. Ask for Micah Griffen
