 Kubota L3200 Tractor Stump Removal

My first tractor and have a lot to learn.
Does anyone have experience with a similar size unit working on removing tree stumps? My unit will have a front loader and rear box grader. Is it really feasible to do some stump removal with this unit. Would appreciate some advice. Thanks

 Kubota L3200 Tractor Stump Removal

Stumps are better handled with a Bulldozer or Track Hoe. A compact tractor with a backhoe could dig out a stump but it will take quite a bit of time based on the size of the stump, whereas Bulldozer would make quick work of it. A Bulldozer can do in a day what might take months with a tractor with a backhoe. Plus it will beat up the tractor.

Its better to hire out the hard stuff and then use the tractor for what it is good at.

The L3200 will take care of the stumps just fine -- if it has a grinder on the back. Otherwise rent a gas one.

Thanks for the input.... that is what I thought. Didn't want to spend the extra money for a back hoe. Will look into renting something. Thanks, John

 Kubota L3200 Tractor Stump Removal

I use a big skid steer with pallet forks to remove stumps of all sizes. I prefer a full size backhoe though. A comparable size excavator or as Dennis (sorry Dennis : ) , albeit incorrectly) calls a trackhoe is good too. Least favorite is a dozer since it makes a mess and too big of hole. Timewise a backhoe is quicker, and you can use the loader bucket to push the old stumps in a pile and refill the hole. Excavators have dozer blades but it is tedious and takes much longer to refill the hole, and you can't necessarily transport stumps easily.

Hey EW I am in good company calling an Excavator a Trackhoe check this video Laughing out loud

When I had a couple of wooded acres cleared I hired a guy with an excavator and bulldozer, he removed the stumps with the excavator, pushed them into a pile with the bulldozer, then let them sit for several months, then he took the Track hoe with a grapple attachment to take the stumps from the pile, shake the loose dirt and load them on tractor trailer.

 Kubota L3200 Tractor Stump Removal

First question and don't see it answered, how big are the stumps? Then we can talk about what equipment is best suited. I have with a larger tractor used box blade only to pull quite a few stumps. Note they were no more than 6 inches or so in diameter. Learned to back into them first pushing them as much as possible and then pick box blade clear and back it over them to where you could now pull them. With blade engaged and slow pull to also raise the lift. Popped a good many small stumps out that way. Now if a 2 foot stump, good size excavator or track hoe or what ever called locally.

Depending on the stumps you might could run the rippers around them and cutting some of the roots get still little larger roots.



My experience with FEL is limited but would suggest being careful with it as they can be damaged doing such.

You can always spot a CUT who used the FEL to dig stumps: the bucket looks like it's smiling. FEL buckets are not for digging--just moving duties like manure or loose dirt or stones, etc.
(Kenny would say "lose" dirt) good ol' Kenny. Jis' sayin' ya'll

You're both wrong, they always been called "Swing Hoes" on this part of the earth.
I never knew that Massey Ferguson built, or had one built for them a "Swing Hoe" till the neighbor bought one real cheap. It was sitting in a sale yard with one track off the drive sproket, he bought it as is where is. Things went mostly downhill from there, the tracks weren't the only things worn out. I never knew for sure what he did with it, "Swing Hoe" Heaven, I think.
Frank.
