DR also makes an attachment for their 'Front Mounted Mow-Ball' string type trimmer that they call a 'Beaver Blade'. It looks like a chainsaw chain wrapped around a 12" skil-saw blade. My Dad has one and with the beaver blade I can cut trees up to 5" diameter almost as fast as a chainsaw.
I also have a Ryobi shoulder mount 'string trimmer' that has a brush blade attachment. We call it The Wing Wing because when the RPMs are maxed out and you swing it at 1" brush that is the sound it makes as it contacts wood.
I cleared about an acre of Alder and Honeysuckle.
Not easy but it works.
I have since smartened up and use Bonnie 8N and a 5 foot King Kutter 'brush-hog'. Paid $500 brand new last summer and love it.

For the $2000 that you will pay for a DR walk behind, I would get an old tractor that comes with a cutter. The tractor will come in handy for other things that you haven't even thought up yet. Never knew I needed one till I got one and now cannot immagine being without it.
Used to spend $300 a year on having the fields cut, and that was only one cutting per year. Now I keep them mowed 4-5 times a year and the neighbors want to hire me to do theirs...
