This is why I'm so great. See, I am able to read into these things. (yes clipfert, I'm GREAT!)

Yeah, he could borrow a machine from his buddy. He could rent one. But by the time he does all that - a guy with a sledge hammer could have it done.

Not only am I able to think more smartly, but I have demolished things in almost as many states as Paver Pete has installed pavers.
Keep thinking more "smartly" You have way to much time on your hands lol

RJ (from your first post) yes it is basically all concrete block. Actual sign is relatively identical to the pic.

I figured I could just loosen soil beneath and push it over then break it into pieces, but I don't have a lot of experience with what kind of base/footing signs like this would have. And the ground is currently frozen otherwise I'd dig down next to it and find out.

Busting that sign up isn't back breaking. Unless you have the build of a tooth pick!

I'd be using a skid, and I feel like I already got my answer many times over in this thread. Thanks. Probably just ram it over and use the forks to load.
