danmorea- Big rocks a incredibly difficult to move and controlling in a FIL even more. I've had success getting a chain around them sometimes but patience and safety are key.

Thanks for sharing, pictures would be great if you can . . . . :kidw_truck_smiley:

I try that, using chains but with loader full with soil would lift my front off the ground What i did after i dig i flip them out from the hole and when i have the rock on level ground i lift one end 1-2 inch and push them

Sounds like a plan. I wasn't able to get on their low side due to crops in the field so pulling was my option up a 2' or so step.
