I was wondering what the easiest way to remove or pull out shrubs is.In the past to remove my own stuff I cut it down to ground level and then dig around the root ball and chop it out with an axe.Thats alot of work there must be an easier way.

I use a compact tractor loader backhoe. Works great.

Hear alot about these 4 in 1 buckets. Are they really that good? Why? How would you use it to remove shrubs?

Any pics of them in action?

Not saying they are bad, just really do not know anything about them... Thanks

'04 2500HD and a long chain. Just make sure the roots arent growing under the sidewalk, this method has been known to remove concrete, also.:laugh:

I have a local tree service come in cut the tops down then he grinds the whole bed for me so no roots are in the way.

I would never ever be seen yanking up shrubs w/ a pick-up!!! You have got to be kidding me. I would get the area located... that might save you some headaches. We usually pull them up w/ the dingo and strap, or pick axe, or a mixture of both.

I have had that done before... the guy didn't even make us cut them... he just stuck the grinder in there and went at it!
