    I cannot say for sure about bigger, but I have certainly removed 12" trees via the ripper and push over method. I agree that any bigger than that gets dicy as it would be hard to push them over even after ripping lateral roots. Trees with big tap roots might be tough too. Still, a bigger excavator would make quick work of those and you wouldn't be digging out stumps for the next year or two.
    Well if you didn't have 11k of posts I would search for pictures of that bad boy ripper tooth on your BH. Mind saving me some search time and re-posting some pics? Thank you.

    Now I have to check my forks too!!

    I am traveling so don't have access to photos right now. However, there is a thread I started a couple of years ago titled something like "trees beware, I added a ripper to my Woods BH90x" that has lots of photos at the beginning as well as a pretty good discussion of various issues. Shouldn't be hard to find with the search tool. Basically, I worked with Michigan Iron and Equipment to adapt a full size excavator ripper tooth to scale for my Woods BH90x then to fabricate it. I then went to work removing trees with trunk diameters from about 5-15" by simply ripping through the roots around the base and then pushing the tree over. Works great and takes the "stump" out without nearly the soil disruption associated with digging a stump out after dropping a tree via traditional chainsaw method. And, to bring us back to grapples, I could then simply transport the ripped trees to a pile with my grapple. Very efficient combo for clearing 20-30 years of trash trees from a neglected pasture.

    I just checked out your thread... you're forgetting that I don't have a backhoe! With that said, if I had access to a backhoe or excavator... that would be my way of removing these trees as well.

    I would fix that gap pretty quick with a welder and some steel. Show the photo to the manufacture, and if you don't weld yourself , take it to a local weldor and see if the manufacture can pay to have it done.. Should not be much money. I would be afraid with it shifting around, it might pop off on one side and twist your SSQA. I really think you ought to fix it.

    I plan to fix it - problem is, I only have my dads 110v MIG here, and my trailer axle has sprung a leak so to speak.....

    110v MIG running fluxcore would be fine. You just need to put in spacers. Tack welds would probably work so a bead of 0.030 fluxcore would certainly do the trick.

    I fixed my Wildcat grapple and forks with putting 1/4" spacer plates on the bottom brackets. Works great and the implements fit tight now.
