I want to show this recently acquired item....it is really remarkable....believe the manufacturer got it right....I had a previous attachment similar but it was wide in front with teeth and wouldn't do the job needed with the compact tractor. This one has the sharp pointed shaft and is a devil on roots and getting under the trunks of trees....I have the 1025r backhoe which is good to dig a stump pit then work dirt off into pit...but this thing is the item that will move the dirt to the pit and loosen the roots. It will literally just pull a small tree up by its root. The snout or whatever you call it acts as pry point. Really pleased. For my compact I took the plasma cutter and removed the lower points so the bucket will slide on the ground. It is also excellent for getting under fallen trees and lifting and pulling. Wanted to pass along.
