We are Keith’s Tractor Mowing out of Fort Worth, Texas.  Unless you are reading this in Fort Worth, we really don’t have a horse in this particular race, so what we are going to tell you in this article will not benefit us one bit . . . thus making it unbiased and completely reliable.

What to look for in a land clearing company

There are four things we believe you should look for in an acreage mowing company:

  • Experience
  • Price competitive
  • Liability insurance
  • Proper equipment for your particular job

Let’s look at each of these determining factors.

Look for experience in your area

Land clearing, done properly, requires experience.  Practically anyone with a Toro push mower can clear land, but not everyone can do a professional job clearing land in a reasonable amount of time.  Ask around!  Ask other business owners or other property owners or even real estate agents.  Ask construction companies who have used land clearing companies.  Check with people at the Better Business Bureau.  Make a list of the top five recommendations after you have concluded your investigation, and then rate them according to the other factors we mention below.

Price should be competitive and in a particular range

In any city of any decent size, tractor mowing services all charge basically the same amount. It is a competitive industry, so tractor mowing companies must stay in an established price range.  If you come across a quote which is considerably lower than the rest, or considerably higher than the rest, it is our experience that you should probably steer clear of those companies.  Find out what the industry standard is regarding cost and choose within that standard price.

Make sure they have liability insurance

This is a deal-breaker!  No matter how highly recommended the acreage mowing company may be, accidents and damage may occur, and you will want to be covered by general liability insurance.  At Keith’s Tractor Mowing we carry $1 million in insurance. Let that be a guide for you when hiring a lot mowing company.

Proper equipment

At Keith’s we have two main pieces of equipment, a TORO 5910 for regular grass mowing, and John Deere 4320 for the tough brush clearing jobs.  Each one is a specialized piece of tractor mowing equipment specifically designed for precise mowing in precise settings.  Make sure the company you hire has the machinery you need.  Ask them what they use, and make sure that equipment is what you need.

You now have all the information you need to hire the best land clearing company in your area for your particular job. This is not a decision to make hastily.  You will pay a significant amount for quality acreage mowing, so make sure you are hiring a qualified professional to do the job.
