Agreed on this.

Also with a digging bar, mattock, an axe and a couple shovels and 2 guys... All would be out in 4 hours tops.

Oh and chainsaw.

just put a tow strap around it and hook to ur truck and drive away. go slow and have a partner keep an eye on it so you dont pull other stuff up wit it. done that a dozen times... works great and cheap (hope you have a clear shot to the road)

Yup.... Truck, strap, and a chainsaw should do it in less than an hour. Call 811 first of course

That's a great way to ruin your trans. And look like a hack doing it

Oh cone on wiffy. It's no worse than a 10k starting at the bottom of a steep hill. 4wd low. I pulled one out with my diesel dully and was spinning in 4wd hardly pressing the throttle. It is cheaper than renting a mini ex though :-) BE sure to get some hardcore tow straps. I broke my 15k strap 3 times like glass

I'd go hand tools by the time you get a machine unloaded shrubs would be flying out

Brush Grubber HD

If it don't work for you-take it back.
By far, the best thing under $100 you'll ever spend for the purpose.

Go ahead and get the chain too.
The Chartreuse color sold me.
Easy to see when all wrapped up in brush.

That stuff looks nice, if its boxwood it can be cut way back to the individual plants, the red bud tree could be chain sawed out and the rest dug out. If machinery is used the rodk "mulch" will have too be removed manually, or what ever you recreate will be a mess too maintain.

What about cutting the plants at the ground with a chain saw and having the stumps ground?
