Anyone know roughly how much scrub (cistus, brushwood) a decent backhoe driver can clear in a day? 500m2, or 1,000m2, or a hectare.....on a gentle slope as in photo. Not cutting terraces, just clearing scrub. Any info much appreciated.

We had about three quarters a hectare of very steep land cleared (mostly mimosa) and terraced in 6 days. Without the terraces I think he would've cleared it in a couple of days. If it's mostly scrub and not too steep, it should be quicker I guess? You could ask for a few quotes (although if you're in the central area João is the best in the business and keenly priced)
