Aloha from the Big Island

Aloha. Greetings from the Big Island. I’m staying at a vacation rental place in Hawaiian Paradise Park until I can move onto our land, hopefully in a week or two. It’s simple but nice. In the week I’ve been here, I bought a truck that is just what I wanted, a ’98 Mazda B4000 4X4 that has high mileage, but is in good condition. I cleared a good sized clearing on the land using hand tools and just bought a chain saw for the heavier stuff. The lava is fairly soft and I can do some leveling by hand. I’m wondering if I might be better off getting a smaller dozer to do the leveling rather than the D9 which many recommend. I have a small lot and want to preserve as much of the natural environment as possible.
