    Under Powered or Transmission? (VIDEO)

    I was pulling some small trees out the other day and decided to try and see if I could pull out this larger stump that I had cut really close to the ground about 6 months ago, I didn't think the tractor would do it but I figured it would just spin the tires. I didn't think the trans would "stall", I know the angle was putting some serious down pressure on the back tires but I was just surprised. Is this typical of a Hydrostatic Transmission? Anyway I included a successful attempt in the video as well.

    First off you got some Ba**s pulling on something that could come loose all at once...not something I want to try. That thing could have been a head grubber. Back to the question. I could easily see some smaller trees giving a 1025 a hard time. Hell, I had a Gehl skidsteer that couldn't push over a 6" oak but could push a 16" pine over no problem. Trans would stall out and finally stall the motor on the 6" oak. Some trees have more roots and deeper tap root. Just depends on the type of tree your working with.

    Big is right. Don’t ever forget pulling things like this is a dangerous activity, even when done right. We all do it, just be careful. Now, to your question. Roots are some powerful things. I have many, and I mean many, that will bring my 2038R to a halt. Hell, I rented a 12000 pound excavator and had some bring it to a stop. Roots are tough. Evolution has designed them to grow deep and hang on to the ground. Your tractor is fine, this is very normal. In this case, you have to dig some and cut a few of the root leads until you weaken it enough to come out. Keep on tractoring.

    One more thing, I like to pull from the 12:00, 3:00, 6:00, and 9:00 position on these stubborn roots. Sometimes pulling from different sides, it will break enough of the roots underground to come out.

    Stumps are tough for all tractors, small or large, which is another reason I have a Backhoe. It also depends on the tree type and the root structure. First, your chain needs to be shorter for several reasons. One safety. Should it break it doesn't take your head off or other limbs. Second, it give you leverage. In the one you had a hard time pulling out, I would have backed as close to the stump as possible, lowered your attachment on your 3pt hitch. The attach your chain to your hook. Then while pulling, raise the 3pt hitch at the same time your moving forward. This does a couple of things, your using the weight of the tractor to pull vertical on the stump, at the same time your pulling horizontal on the stump with the power of the tractor and you can backup and go forward at the same time. Not too many stumps can take that abuse. This safer for you and the tractor and you get more traction as you apply pressure to the stump.

    I'm confused, how could this come lose all at once? Chain with clamps? Wouldn't it slide before snapping? and I dont see a problem with elasticity. I'm missing something in reference to the danger. Educate me.

    Pulling from the 3pt is never a good idea. It is higher than the axle and can rotate the front up. Always pull from the draw bar. Also, the 3pt is kind of a weak place when it comes to snatching immovable objects.

    From the video it looks like you were in high gear. In high, the transmission will in fact "stall" under such circumstances.

    This guy didn't see a problem with chain elasticity/stored energy either...payed the ultimate price too. https://youtu.be/ETFFeUoq5Vw

    Hahaha! Don't get rid of em yet. When you pull with anything, just be careful, lay something heavy over the chain/rope to keep it low in the event of breaking. I just don't like pulling on anything with that amount of force. Dig it out with the bucket.
