While I'm waiting for my tractor to be delivered, I'm reading as much as I can about safe use of various implements. One common task that seems to generate some controversy is pulling stumps or other resistant loads. Chain vs straps, attachment points, size of chain, how to hook the chain, pull from front vs rear, etc.
Is there a "best practices" technique for pulling a stump that minimizes risk to the tractor and operator? I will have a 3046R, 320R loader, 4 in 1 bucket (Ken says bolt on hooks won't be a good option), Artillian fork frame with 2" receiver shackle.
Any Stump Pulling for Dummies suggestions are welcome. I won't be a bit offended with basic information.
