    Knarly Stump #2

    Thought I would share last weekends project. Digging out a knarly mesquite stump. Stump was about 3 ft round. Broke an axe and fiskers loppers in the process.

    I've dug up three stumps so far with my 1025 backhoe. I'm sooo glad my wife twisted my arm and insisted we get the backhoe.

    especially at 56 YO.....the work this thing does is amazing....hauling timber out of the woods and piling logs nice and neat and digging stumps, and leveling land...

    I think it would be best if you used your back hoe.

    Great job!

    But, golly, that looks like it was a heckuva lot of work! And to think I was unsure whether I wanted to tackle some much smaller stumps when I (finally) get a backhoe for my 2012 1026R. You give me faith, brother!

    I was about twice as fast removing this stump than the first.. now that I understand the technique to use. This one took about 3 hrs of digging, moving, and cutting roots. I wasn't in a hurry.

    I found that running the bh at about 2200 rpm worked best. That allowed me to use multiple functions at same time (boom, dipper, curl). I also found that if I started to dump (uncurl) when boom was close to max swing I had less tendency to hit the stops hard. It was much smoother.

    Just wondering... does running the rpm's a little higher help keep the hydraulics cooler? seems like it did to me when diggin. I felt less heat coming off the valve body.
