things are good. Just wet and slow too! Have some work for the next two weeks then I need to get some bids in. I think I'll be okay, though. Have a lot of referral business and I'm cleaning up after the other guys!

Okay seriously, It is called " Mesquite Grubbing " , It grows pretty wild around here in Southern New Mexico, West Texas. It is a wild bush that grows out like weeds but tree like. And I have a stump bucket grappler that pulls them out!

I'm not real familiar with mesquites, but this is what we use for ripping out brush, piling brush, logs, picking up boulders, or all kinds of other things. We went through a few "heavy duty" grapples before we found this, and it is "heavy duty".

@ Chiroz & Blyth
My dad and I are looking into getting into the grubbing/excavation type work with a midsized excavator, we are looking to get into it more as a hobby,i would be the one running the business mostly. He is in good financial standing so we arent looking to become rich off it just make more than what we spend. But in the past week he has talked himself out of it because he doesnt think we could make a go,i think we could between trenching and all the other things you can do with it. I was wondering what yall use(excavator or bobcat) Im asking yall because we are in the same general area, im from midland. He is also concerned about the insurance for liability and for the machine. So i was just wondering how yall are making out so i could try to convince him before he trys to go into shredding and disking small lots(which i dont want to do) If yall dont want to share this info thats fine too. Thanks

Mesquite Grubbing

Howdy,

I am a new member and ran across this post. Grubbing is the primary service my business provides. I use a skid steer and a patented attachment of our own design. I use a Takeuchi TL 150 for many reasons:

-They have a lot of power.
-They have the sturdiest quick-tack which is absolutely essential for the use of our attachment. Most quick-tacks rely on the attachment for rigidity. The Takeuchi does not have that limitation and therefor enables the use of our design.

We are doing a lot of work putting CRP land back in production. We can take down some very large trees, however there is a size limit at which point we suggest an excavator be used. Depending on moisture and type of soil, we have a high success rate at pulling up the tap root.

We have a method of grubbing, raking, and disposing of the mesquites that leaves no large mounds of dirt on the land or evidence that the mesquites were there in the first place.

You can check out the grubbing attachment at Facebook.com/SimmonsBrush&DirtWorks. We primarily perform grubbing as a service ourselves but we also sell our attachment made-to-order. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions about grubbing. We have been doing this for a very long time and have a lot of insight.

Welcome to LS. I know this thread is old but there is always a need for mesquite control. I'd like to know more about what you do. Post some pics sometime. I'm down around San Antonio.. not sure where you are. I mostly deal with cedar in my area but I was just in the Brownwood area and saw a need for mesquite control.

I'd personally like to use an excavator for removing trees then put them through a tub grinder. Do you mostly burn, chip, or shred?
