    Default Anyone use a brush grabber?

    Has anyone used one of thesebrush grabbers?

    Seems to have good reviews from Norther Tool.

    Looks like an industrial pallet skid puller. KennyV.

    There was a discussion about it a couple of months ago. As I recall, the person who had it really liked it.
    I'll click on anything. Just post it.

    I bought one not to long ago. I am using it to pull Autumn Olive bushes. It works fairly well. I think with a heavier tractor, I use mine with a TC18, it would work better.

    I have a pallet puller (http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...70_47891_47891)from Northern I bought before the Brush Grubber with the rotating heads came out. The pallet puller is much more heavy duty but the rotating heads are priceless. Thumbs up with one caveat- for really big stuff/really big tractor you'll probably tear it up. They now have a heavier duty model.
    BTW Sportsmans Guide has the regular one for way less than Northern...

    I've used a grubber and it pulls the brush/tree out of the ground roots and all. You should remember to attach it on small trees about one foot up with a long chain. And the tractor attachment is low down, like on the drawbar.
    When you pull, the tree will fall towards you and the tractor, hence the long chain. You attach to the tractor low down because of leverage. And the one foot up the trunk is the best way to pull the plant out.
    One inconvenience is that the grubber's jaws bite into the trunk and are hard to remove. I use a rubber mallet for that.
