    I'm gonna take some pictures of the trees that I have knocked over. I'm guessing about 16" in diameter. Tractor took it right over without digging around the roots.

    However, a slightly "larger" locust was not going to be had [img]/w3tcompact/icons/sad.gif[/img]. It did a little bend job on the 7' bucket!!

    I agree with ya Jimpaulus.

    The size of a sapling is directly dependant on the size of your tractor.

    Hi Fred...

    If I was a sapling and saw your 'big' tractor coming at me... I'd try to jump out of the ground and get out of the way... [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Phred,

    I too sometimes like to just bush hog this size of brush, but occasionally, depending on the future use of the site, do not wish to have the small "stumplets" sticking up out of the ground. At least for me, this is one reason that I too like to sometimes just rip them right up out of the ground.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Rick,

    It was almost dark, I was tired and I already had the chain with me. I just tossed it around the base to see if I could get it quickly and just drag it to the burn pile. It worked and I did. Had it not I would have waited until the next day to use the BH.

    Of course, that just brings up my true and absolute need for some auxilliary lighting on my tractor, now doesn't it? [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Be carefull and use the drawbar when pulling. I had a girlfriends father turn his ford tractor over on top of himself about 20 years ago pulling logs. He hooked to the tractor up near where the top link attaches. The log caught on something on a trail and pulled the machine over on top of him. The stearing wheel crushed his chest when it came over on top of him. It took two fairly large wreckers and an entire volunteer fire department to get the tractor off of him. Fortunately he is still here to tell the story. I havent seen him in about 10 years. I got dumped by his daughter. From what I here to date the only tractor he will get on now is a sears garden mower to gut his grass.

    I am all for being careful, however someone might relate using the drawbar with flipping over. Hooking onto the drawbar, which is below the axle, should eliminate the possibility of the tractor flipping over backwards.

    Jim:
    My bucket cutting edge wore out long ago and was replaced with a 1/2 in. by 4 in. welded on edge. It don't bend cause my tractor is too small.
