Clearing Right-of-Way Land Requires the Right Equipment

Right-of-way land is an easement property which has been reserved for transportation purposes, such as a highway, public pedestrian walkways, rail transport, canal, utility lines, or oil and gas pipelines. This right-of-way on the property is reserved for the purposes of maintenance or expansion of existing services. Right-of-way work involves maintaining safe traffic flow, which is a concern not typically considered in other types of land clearing jobs.

In many cases, right-of-way land is characterized by steep hills and embankments, which present serious challenges for those tasked with clearing or maintaining this property. Job demands, difficult terrain, finish, and maintenance requirements will dictate what equipment capabilities will be required for the job.

Right-of-way jobs require a wide range of right-of-way clearing equipment to tackle the variety of terrain. Fence line work, detail work, and heavy grasses can be managed using Fecon compact land clearing tractors with mulching head attachments. Fecon tree shear attachments are effective for thinning, while Fecon excavator mounted mulchers are suited for selective tree cutting. Large-scale, high volume projects are best served by Fecon’s larger tracked mulching tractors with stump grinders and forestry millers, which will provide a workable finish and maximize acres-per-day productivity.

To optimize productivity and efficiency, the right equipment must be selected for the type of work to be done and the variety of terrain most commonly found in the right-of-way work area. The best attachments and undercarriage selections will enhance the cost-efficiency of right-of-way clearing machines.
