Well it was a lot of work, or fun /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif but for any one who thinks a 180 can't dig with the small rock bucket and teeth, you’re in for a surprise. It took me some time, and this was one big stump. When I finally got it up, the PT pucker kicked in so I know it was every bit of 600 pounds with dirt attached.

As soon as I get them resized I will post a few pictures here. What a mess, now I will be taking the teeth off and filling back in the large crater. Nothing like doing it the hard way. Next time I do this it will be with a Mini Hoe add on. I know with the hoe it would have taken much less time. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
