What exactly is that? Is it like a hand? If it is, I'm sure operating it would make it seem like the hand of GOD! lol That would be really handy for cutting down hawthornes. Because no matter how you cut them, they fall on you. So you could grab it, put some upward force on it, and cut it off with a chain saw without worry.
Nice brush pile. Sad note though. How do you make sure that no animals have nested in there? I have burned such piles routinely, and have found the remains of snakes for instance. I hate snakes but would not wish being burned alive on any living creature. Well, maybe I could make an exception for politicians and lawyers!
The Gurl Guides would be happy!
So is that thing supposed to rip things out of the ground?
Would they have not been better to put the cylinder out to the side to keep the pull closer to the machine? I know, around here, it takes a lot of power to rip even a small tree out of the ground.
This really makes me question how different types of ground affect the possibility of ripping a tree straight out of the ground. I have seen ads of farm tractor loader V type attachments ripping 3 or 4 inch trees out of the ground but around here that don't work! What do you figure your lifting capacity at the pinch point?
No, don't have many small stumps, the jaws open to 8".Have you tried it on stumps?
How short do you think a stump could be and it still work?
