Does a JD 4300 have the HP to pull a stump or would i be better off getting a stump grinder if one is even available on this size tractor

 Stumps

How big is your stump? How many do you have? Is this a one-time-deal or something that you will be doing regularly? I do not think that a tractor is the best tool for pulling stumps. A buldozer works best when the tree is standing because the weight of the top helps to lift the stump when the tree is pushed. A backhoe is the best tool when the stump's root system can be cut with the bucket. If not, the grind. Given the cost of buying a grinder (have never seen one for a three point but is one is available someone will tell us about it!). Assuming this is a one-time-deal I would look into hiring a backhoe or a stump grinder. Backhoe can pluck out a lot of small-medium stumps in no time at all. You can use your tractor to drag the stumps off, lift them into burn piles, haul fill dirt for the holes, and restore the grade. I have done a lot of clearing in the past few years and I have tried everything when it comes to stumps. Take it from me, if you buy a tractor to pull stumps you will not be happy.

Your right Steve I guess I should have been a little more specific....What I wastrying to discover was if there was enough HP in a 4300 that it could be used for this purpose either w/ a backhoe or stump grinder (if available) or as yousuggested even by pulling....I am thinking of close quarter backyards in urbanareas and although I don't have any specfics in mind I wouldn't want to tackleanything bigger than lets say a 16 inch diameter I do agree with you that in most cases the bulldozer is the way to go if possible...I have a Uncle inthe tree business he cuts them down but doesn't remove the stumps thought Icould make a little extra money and would even consider maybe a 4400 if I were close in HP but it is not worth going out and buying or renting any other equipment in the end you wouldn't be making anything with what you would haveto charge just trying to explore all areas prior to making a purchasethanks for the input howeverRichequipment

They do make a stump grinder for a three point hitch and yes a tractor will pull the stumps but you will have to take your time and work around the stump cutting the roots first with the backhoe on the larger ones. I've pulled many of them with my 4600. Good luck

Far cheaper and easier to hire a large excavator for a day. Just think of the $$damage$$ you will cause on you and your tractor let alone the cost of a grinder. Leave stumps to the pros.

 Stumps

I've been pulling stumps lately with a small (~22 hp) excavator. It's work. Once you get the thing loose you have to get it out of the hole which can be trying. Here in Washington a 2 ft fir or cedar root ball can be pretty big. I spend a lot of time repositioning the excavator scurrying around the stump to get the best angle on it. If I didn't already have the excavator for other stuff I'f rent something bigger.....the biggest baddest excavator (with thumb) I could get my hands on. I've heard really the best way is to cut trees high and use a crawler/dozer to pull the stump out using the remaining 6 feet or so left for leverage. A caution about grinding. If you intend to cover the area where the stump was and you don't get it all out you're setting yourself up for sink holes when the stump rots (this happened in my driveway once). Also, bugs love stumps. We get carpenter ants here.
