I purchased my 1025 last summer, and it’s the only tractor I’ve ever operated, so just about everything regarding tractors is new to me. This spring, I used my 1025 to pull several stumps in my yard, and in neighbors yards... nothing large but couple were 8”-9” in diameter... and I only used idle and all were an easy pull with the 1025 (one I had to pull from 3 different directions). I know every stump is different and soil conditions vary, but I’m wondering what is the largest stump you pulled on level ground with a 1025?... what kind of tree was it?... and how did you setup your tractor to do it? (ie: Did you use a rear hitch/drawbar, was your fel on, did you use ballast weight, chain size, etc).

I used my 2019 1025r this past summer to remove this baby! I think it was a sweet gum tree. My ballast was just my backhoe. Stump was still full of water and quite heavy.

Wow! How did you do that... maybe you drove the fel into the stump at ground level and used the curl function?

After digging out around it with the backhoe and using the hydraulic thumb to help me cut the root system up pretty good. I was able to get the bucket under the side and attach the strap around the trunk. The curl feature was definitely used. I chose to keep it low to the ground for obvious reasons, lol!

This was a big old willow I dug out with my backhoe, sawsall, and digging bar. I had 2 good days working on it. Later I built a sled, rolled it on with the tractor, and then drug it around back where I’ll burn it later this year

This I'm guessing was 1500-2000lbs to pull out, it was all the tractor had and with the BH, FEL and me, I'm guessing the tractor was 2800lbs and spinning tires. eventually it released. FEL couldn't handle it until a LOT was removed, and even then it was a curl only lift.

A lot of others have removed some mighty impressive stumps as well, especially Kbar without the backhoe.

Flowering cherry. Front hoe, forks, bucket, chain, sawzall, chain saw, Heavy Hitch Ripper-front mounted to Artillian receiver.

Stupid thing was no bigger than a broom stick when we moved in 16 years earlier.

Would you tell me more about how you did this? (I don’t have a backhoe either)
TY

Kbar's machine must have performance enhancing drugs :ROFLMAO:

I bet he has 38 HP engine running 3500 psi hydraulics in a 1025 body. 😁

That cottonwood gave it all it can handle and then some. That was one heavy stump. Felt like one of those dung beetles pushing the turd uphill. It’s definitely a 1025R but I have a slight advantage in being a heavy equipment operator. I’m surprised I haven’t taco’d that loader frame with all the abuse I’ve done to the poor thing. Pretty much why I went JD cuz I knew it could take what I threw at it..hopefully

I don't think he even has a RED key. 😲
