Winch for removing shrubs

I may be putting this in the wrong area.Sorry.
What I need to know is how big or small of a winch can I use to pull shrubs out of the ground?I was thinking maybe 2000 lbs would be enough as long as I loosen the soil around the shrubs.Thx

Should be fine. I've used boat style crank winches mounted on the front of my open trailers. If you need more pull you can use the two speed gear reduction type or add pulley blocks. These days I have electric that greatly speeds up the process. Also useful for when a mower craps out.

reminds me of back in February. Customer wanted a holly tree pulled up at the house he just bought. When he saw me wrapping my log chain around the tree and tying it off to the D rings in my dump trailer, he laughed and said it wouldn't work because his Hummer wouldn't budge it. One good jerk with my 2500HD and then back up and jerk it one more time, tree was out.
