It does vary depending on how productive you are, how many tickets and experience you have. As an example I get £200 a day felling the oversized trees that the machine can't handle, but all my costs come out of that. On a piece rate it can be from £8 a ton felled and stacked in decent wood to £15 a ton in not so decent.
I have to make clear that I'm not looking to employ anyone, cutters usually work in pairs ( both being self employed subcontractors)nowadays due to health and safety requirements, although some places I can still get away with lone working.
Good reply .
