    Here are a couple of picks of the 1026 and KBOHs doing some work.

    Yeah, and I couldn't find my cardboard glasses...

    How did you attach the chain(?) around the trunk of the bush. I'm thinking about a couple of walnut saplings I'd like to pull (without buying a brush grubber chain for just the 2)?

    Around the trunk with a slip hook on one end. The brush grabbers are nice. But a chain with slip hook gets mighty tight. Also is frees up alot easier than the grabber chain spikes.

    I HATE slip hooks... they unhook themselves as soon as you let go of them 95% of the time. I always use grab hooks on ALL chains.

    Pulling bushes, trees, brush, even fence posts, wrap the chain around it 2-3 times and hook the grab hook with just a little bit of slack. As you raise the loader the chain tightens on the tree/bush/post, then when you lower the loader and the tree/bush/post is on the ground the chain is slack again.

    I tried to pull out some evergreen bushes with my loader, and couldn't budge em. Are you chopping the roots first?

    HA-HA... YES, sometimes You have to do that. I had one bush right next to my concrete driveway I had BOTH my tractors chained to, a 6500# 35 HP tractor plus the 7000# 50 HP, both tractors with both rear wheels on the dry concrete and could NOT pull the bush. Had to Sawz-All the roots as I got more and more of the bush out.

    KENNY - My DAD was a heavy equipment operator in the Army in WWII, drove trucks, ran bull dozers, ran cranes, anything and everything with wheels or tracks and engines. He had a LOT of years to teach me how to do things correctly, especially when it came to lifting heavy things and pulling stuff. I've gotten by for over 50 years with plain old grab hooks that I can buy for 1/3 or 1/4 the cost of your hooks. If the chains & hooks were something I made my living with, I might try a pair or two, but with the limited use they get it just doesn't make sense to spend that much money on something to just sit around collecting dust.
