 Kubota for Stump removal Part 2

Hi Guys

Thanks for all the input. I have time to go slow with the
stump removal and also need to mow some fields and haul fire wood for the winter months. My ouestion now should I be looking at a B model or a L model in the 30hp?
Mark

Not sure about that myself EW. My personal opinion regarding stumps is the bigger and heavier the machine, the better. There will be roots that you will have difficulty getting to so a small machine will mean more hand work.

 Kubota for Stump removal Part 2

There's no easy way. A front bucket or blade is no match unless it's on a dozer. A back-hoe can get it but it's like buying an axe to open a can. A chainsaw can cut it to ground level but it's not easy to make long horizontal cuts. A tripod with chain hoist is the old way but it's hand-work to chop some roots and get the chain under. If some tree-length is on the stump, there's a new attachment called Jawz, comes in three sizes, needs hydraulic connections.

As for treatments, I applied a rotting chemical a decade ago, and they're now giving in. For a somewhat faster effect, there's dynamite.

To me that points to a stump grinder. You can buy or rent a gas-driven one but they're a bit of a handful. I think the best bet is a hitch-mounted one, for which any tractor with at least 20 HP at the PTO would work.

Auerbach has it covered pretty well. there are custom guys with grinders, but watch him do somebody elses stump before you hire him. There was a guy around the country a few years ago who had kind of a homemade grinder on the three point of an 806 or 1066 Farmall. No curtians, guards, shields etc., chips, rocks, dirt flew all over the place but he had a couple kids along who raked up all the mess before he left. I've never used the stuff, but somebody has a product that is supposed to help them rot away faster than normal if time isn't an issue. Frank.

For my $0.02 worth.....

Unless the stumps are small, and few in numbers, and you are already buying a B/H for something else, and have LOTS of time on your hands with nothing else to do, a CUT with a B/H is certainly not the best tool for the job.

Sort of like digging a pond with a shovel, it can be done, but it's a hard, slow job.

For a mere pittance of what a B/H costs you can rent a much bigger machine for the weekend and be done with no muss or fuss.

A 20,000 pound full size backhoe tractor will clear 10 stumps before you have the first one out with a CUT. Depending on your local rates, you should be able to rent one for the weekend for a few hundred dollars.

Best of luck.

Well not sure if it's legal what with all the envioronmental issues, but I have done this a few times with very good success. Drill several holes in the stump from the top down as deep as you can. Pour motor oil into the holes and let it soak for awhile and then pour a little FO into the hole and light it up. It will slowly burn the entire stump from the inside out after a day or two. Call me crazt, but it works.

I like that idea, could even use it as a BBQ for a couple of days and call it a campfire to avoid the environmental issues Smile

There can be some surprisingly nasty side effects to this method. A friend of mine did this. It smoldered for days and days (maybe weeks) and after awhile smoke was coming up from the ground over an area ~35 feet in diameter and growing. Thankfully a few days of solid rain put it out. You've probably heard of those underground fires that have been burning for decades.
