how many stumps are there? what is the diameter fo the stumps? It will do it if you have the time & patience but your probably better of renting an excavator for a weekend.

With all that will need to be done to clean up after removing the stumps and huge amount of hours digging; I would suggest looking into a large dozer with a ripper and tearing out the stumps and then you can level out the land as well as push the stumps into a pile to burn.

My buddy has a 3010 and I cut down a large oak tree about 20" . It took him a while to dig out the stump, probabably a good hour. Pine are a little easier but 30 acres is a lot of ground to cover and a backhoe isn't the tool of choice if you don't have plenty of time to do the project. I'd rent a large machine like the above mentioned.

Your 3010 will do it but you will put a good beating on it and it will take considerable time. This is the perfect project for a big rental in MHO.

Good man on a large excavator can rip up 2 acres a day of stumps. With the excavator you can dig a large quick hole here and there with in reach of the machine from all sides to bury the stumps, so if you have a 35 foot reach you would only need four to five holes on two acres.

Check your local regulations. Believe it or not there are some areas (like where I built my house in CT) that it is NOT LEGAL to bury stumps! I buried a ton of them and the clowns in town hall tried to make me dig them up. With 30 acres of them I'd try to push them in a few spots and burn them before you have too many sink holes all over the place. Pine burns great when you are trying to get rid of it. Check the regs on this too. my town requires a permit to burn stuff too. I'm waiting for them to build a big wall around my state to keep us all in line!

cthonestguy, I know what your saying, I think you can still bury them on your own property here,I do, but try to take one to a dump. Nuke waste I think they would take, show up with a stump and they back you out of the gates like you have high explosives on board.

You could always try to rent an excavator with a grade blade on it. That's how I do it when I get large stump jobs.

Depending on the size of the stumps, probably the most cost effective way to deal with them would be with a full-sized TLB equipped with a grapple bucket.

Mine, see my picture # 3, will hoist a 10" pine stump out of sandy soil in seconds. I grab the stump, clamp it tight, push it forwards as far as it will go, pull it backwards as far as it will go and then just lift. The beauty of doing it this way is you get VERY little soil on the stump, what little there is will fall off with just a few shakes of the bucket using the curl function.

We use these type of machines constantly in the course of our work for this exact job. We also use 20 ton (and bigger) excavators equipped with a thumb to do this.

With a 20 ton excavator a good operator would clear and re-grade a little over 1/2 acre an hour, about 10 acres in an 8 hour shift, with a TLB you could do about half of that, about 5 acres a day.

A TLB however will allow you to transport the stumps quite a distance which would likely be a better choice for a DIY job.

In most areas you can rent a machine like that for about US$250 a day.

Best of luck.

I built my house out here in 1994. I have close to 5 acres and had to do some pretty good excavation to build my house. I didn't bring in any fill but moved about 3/4 an acre after cutting part of it down about 10 feet to level out a good spot for my house. I have a pretty basis colonial with a walk out basement. I have a 5' subwall below my 8' basement wall on the dowh hill side of the house to give you an idea.

On that side of the house I had a pretty big drop off which I knew I'd never do much with so I put the few stumps I had in the hole. I was back with my buddy in May of 1995 to finish the grade and fill in the hole. I went down in the hole to cut up some brush to find a hen turkey sitting on a nest which I though was going to kill me! Being an adviud hunter I couldn't fill the hole in until they moved on so I waited. In the meantime, the neighbor was 3 weeks ahead of me in the building process. He called for his final and the wetlands inspector showed up. He was a mean old 85 year old volunteer yankee set in his ways. While he was there he decided to walk the 1,200 feet and inspect my progress. Apparently he saw my stump buring ground. I had no idea it was not legal to bury them. He didn't say a word about it until he came for my final inspection! He thn told me if I wanted a C of O I would need to dig them up. Keep in mind this was the side of the house where I had a 13' wall and the stumps were further out and lower than that. I called my buddy and asked him where ther backhoe keys were hidden on the machine, went and dug up 3 other ones in the back I needed to and put them over near that side of the house. I scratched the soil up in that area and called him. He told me I was a "good boy" and gave me my sign off!

These small town volunteer inspectors are the worse of any kind. They are generally the kids who got their $%& kicked in school and now it's pay back time. We finally got a good 1st selectman who got rid of the guy. It's just amazing what you can bring to the dump but they treat a stump like it's a biohazzard. I did hear some rumors that the orange ooze that comes out of them causes cancer. I would highly dowbt a stump will give you cancer but then again what doesn't these days.

A little off the topic but I beter there are a lot of these volunteer type town officials out there. check your laws. Had I left them in a huge ugly pile next to a 1966 chevy up on blocks in the front lawn I would be ok. Your allowed one unregistered car in your yard but bury those stums and your serving time as Martha Stewart's cell mate- go figure.
