 Stump Pulling and Log Skidding

So I'm about to get into fire wood cutting for the year. Now that I have my new tractor (4310 eHydro w/ R4's, iMatch, 430 and other stuff), I'm wondering what the best procedure is for skiddin' logs and pullin' stumps... Do you hook the chain around the iMatch? Or the tow bar? Or ??

 Stump Pulling and Log Skidding

Those stumps will have to be pretty small before you can pull them with a CUT. I find I have to loosen them up real good with the back hoe before the tractor will extract them.

Logs: I read your equipment list.... You will need a boom like device to pull your end of the log off the ground. Your frontier rear blade... minus the blade.... and a length of sturdy chain would do the job. If you have a post hole digger the yoke section works well for log skidding too.

I assume you don't use the iMatch frame as the 'boom' because it is too close to the rear of the tractor?
