Thanks for looking up Gympie Slashing. With the current  conditions and rain delays we are busy, either waiting for it dry out or catching up on jobs when it finally does. So there is a wait of about 2-3 weeks for slashing. I am sorry about the inconvenience, but if you are happy to wait, please phone me. 
All the best Chris. 0428 397430.

Gympie Slashing is here to provide a friendly and reliable grass slashing service for rural and semi-rural acreages, farming properties, or unused blocks in the Gympie Region.

The equipment used is a 2021 model John Deere 6110 4WD tractor which is 110 horsepower, with a front-end loader featuring standard bucket, as well as pallet forks if needed. So I can push timber into heaps, push over trees up to three or four metres high, get rid of lantana where accessible, smooth out rough areas and generally take some of the hard work out of property clean-ups. 

The slasher is a Howard 7-foot extra heavy duty slasher, able to handle most  types of terrain including steep country, and heavy grass. ( It has to be said that extremely rocky and rough country isn't suitable but I can have a look and say yes or no, or leave the portions that are no-go areas and slash the rest).  

The easy stuff is also welcome! We can also handle a small amount of light clearing of wattle and eucalypt regrowth, if you have that on your property. 

I do all the slashing myself, I so I can do the job to my satisfaction. 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?  
Where possible I give a quote so you know exactly how much the job will cost. It’s not always possible to tell exactly how long it will take, especially on the bigger jobs, or if the the whole lot isn't visible. 

Currently ( July 2022 ) the hourly rate for slashing is $132.00 per hour including GST ($120+GST), and a travel fee that is from $88 to $121 depending where it is, the most common is $99 or $110.

NOTE ON RISING FUEL PRICES:
Fuel has gone up by 80c a litre since Christmas as we all know, costing an extra $8 per hour in running costs for the tractor and truck.  i'e. we're spending about $800-$1000 a month more on fuel than in 2021. I've raised the price by $5 per hour, absorbing the difference. So that's why slashing is dearer than previously, I think most people understand that. 


WHY IS THERE A TRAVEL FEE? 
It’s to cover the cost of running the truck and the time taken travelling, and loading and unloading the tractor. 

HOW MUCH CAN YOU SLASH IN AN HOUR? 
It’s tricky to answer that because there are so many things that affect it. A rule of thumb could be 1.5 -2.0 acres per hour but it could be faster or slower depending on things like how much turning is involved, things to go around, steep sections, steep banks and gullies, short or long runs, super thick grass, gates, fiddly bits, multiple trees, etc.  
Basically it's determined by what gear I'm in and how much manouvreing is involved.   

DO YOU CHARGE BY THE ACRE? 
No, by the hour. 

WHAT AREAS DO YOU COVER? 
Usually up to 25kms north, south, east and west of Gympie. For the areas further away it needs to be a bigger job to justify the travel time which I am happy to do, but I can also recommend operators in other districts if I can’t do it myself. 

QUALITY RURAL FENCING
Sorry, I have recently stopped doing the fencing.
