    little tractor vs. BIG STUMP

    I had a big old tree removed because it started dropping limbs on my house. They used a stump grinder, but didn't do a great job and they left a lot of roots that made the ground uneven and difficult to mow. I decided to see what the 1025R and 260B backhoe could do. Unfortunately I didn't have the luxury of easily accessing the stump from all sides. There as also nothing left above ground to push or pull on. Hope you guys enjoy this little video.

    Nice work!
    Took me a full 8 hours for a double stump that was about that same size a few weeks ago. Finally got it out as the sun was going down. Same predicament, could only get at from one side. Just kept working it

    Nice job in that small space. But...I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again...get yourself the bxpanded ripper tooth. You would be amazed at how much less digging is needed.

    Nice job! I’ve messed around with some stumps and rocks and the 260b is really impressive. The 120r on the other hand leaves something to be desired. Would be nice to be able to pick stuff like that up instead of dragging it around...

    Hey nice job, I did the same thing on my first stump then installed the BXpanded root ripper. It is a must if you are stump digging, easier on tractor and utilized power better. Make stump removal even more enjoyable.

    You are welcome. As a new tractor owner, I learned a lot too. At this point in my tractor career, I learn a lot with every project because I basically don't know anything. Well I know one thing, these little tractors are fun, and they help you get a lot done!

    Persistence pays off and I bet experience helps too. I find I do a lot of thinking when operating the tractor. Even though moving those controls doesn't take much effort, I get mentally exhausted after a long day. I'm glad you prevailed over your large stump.
