    Diggin that 260

    Thought I would share tonight's diggin story. I had a mesquite tree in hard pack. Took me 2.5 hrs to remove and fill in the bunker. The hole ended up about 8 ft round and about 4 ft deep. I could have lost the 1025R in there if I wasn't careful

    I have about 80 of my 140 hrs diggin stumps out, so I have had a fair amount of practice. All of them mesquites. If you have ever dug one of these out they are some of the worst. Lots of roots and they can go deep. So far I haven't found one yet that I couldn't get out.

    My first stump took me about 10 hrs to remove as compared to this one at 2.5 hrs. Both stumps were about the same size. It's just the practice that has taught me how best to remove these. I run about 2200 rpm's when I dig now. I find I get a little boost of power above 2000 and the faster controls are to my liking.
