I was pulling bushes out yesterday with my truck and having a hell of a time with one. The customers nieghbor came walking over with a car rim. He said heres a little trick. He stood the rim on end and run the chain over it and said give it a good tug. So i did the stump came right out. I was shocked that this worked. Just wondering if anybody has heard of this payup

That's a great trick. Changing the angle of the pull to more upward must make a big difference.

A wise old man once told me "work smart not hard".
The different angle makes sense.

:p kind of makes you wish that you wouldn't have viewed geometry as a waste of time in school, doesn't it?

Years ago, the Peace Corps published a paperbound book that volunteers took with them wherever they were posted to. It was all about low-tech ways to make ag jobs easier. One of the widgits was a stump puller. Imagine a long pump handle (up and down lever) on top of a fence post that just sort of sat on top of the ground (wherever it was needed). The lever action (lifting up, rather than sideways) was a joy to behold. So-ooo simple, yet so effective!!

I must look online and see if it's in cyberspace.

The 40 ton boom on my Pete works pretty well!! Superman to the rescue.

I have an old tractor rear rim that I use-gives more leverage because its taller.
