This is the start of a multi ripper attachment I am working on. I will be using the forks on my PT along with a 2 inch hitch setup. Not sure how well this will turn out, but since I have no welding equipment this is how I plan to go about it.

If it takes the stress of digging around tree stumps trenching, pulling up rocks and such then I will make other interchangeable attachments for it, such as an electric winch, towing adaptor and so on. I will update when it is done.

Just an update for anyone interested . I rigged my ripper attachment to the forks today, to see how strong the tube would be... plenty strong. I also ordered a shorter tube for closer work. It has a pin at the base to change to the shorter tube, and one at the front for other attachment plug in's, and a boom.

Since I don't have any welding equipment, this was the only way to test it out. I will be looking for a local welder in the next few weeks to weld this to an attachment plate with bracing. It will be great for trenchs, pulling up rocks and roots. First picture.

Making a small trench worked well.

Here's another tree stump that needs to come out. I just clawed around it to see what it would do. Since I don't have a mini hoe yet, this will come in handy around here until I can make one.

I took the truck into town and had someone help me load this 300 pound tree trunk into the back. I do rustic wood working, and plan to make a table out of this for my down stairs.

I used the PT, and forks to lift it out of the truck. I had to rest it against this tree to keep the the hydraulic bleed off from letting it down... while I took the picture. It's hard to tell from this picture the size of this thing, but I can tell you first hand it's really heavy.
