    Default Excavator / AFE Head Time Lapse

    Finally shot another time lapse video. Here we are clearing in a pine plantation for a food plot. Mulching the trees, digging the stumps, and mulching the stumps with the excavator. Followed by the Bobcat mulching any stray limbs and mixing the mulch with the topsoil brought up with the stumps. I would love to have a food plot this size to hunt, although the shot to the back may be a little long.

    Nice job but how come you didn't use the gyrotrac ? It would have done that job in 1/4 of the time.
    Mulchers 100-600 Hp, Dozers, Excavators, Trucks, and a bunch of other stuff that cost me money every day.

    We had it on site just in case, but it would have been hard to find the stumps to dig and mulch after mulching the trees with the gyro trac. It took longer this way but
    We came out better and were able to give a better price. Beside, the excavator needed a good workout and its much more comfortable to run!

    How do the teeth last when you mulch stumps?

    Not too bad. The only abnormal wear we are getting is on the quadco cutter on the edge of the disc. 20 hours, flip, 20 hours, replace. But there's only 8 of them at $17. Should finish the last plot today.

    Hey Colby, have you ever thought of fitting a Power Tilt quick attach (as shown on AFE web site ) on your excavator to make stumpgrinding easier?
