The arborvitae's shouldn't be too bad to yank out, they are very shallow rooted. The boxwoods are on the larger end of the spectrum, so they will take a little more, but it's do-able with what you have.

Have you considered cutting them out, then grinding the stumps? That will be easier than digging them out, IMHO. Stump grinder rental around here is about $100 for 4 hours (Vermeer SG 252), which would be more than enough time to grind those out if it's not far from the rental yard.

If you end up digging them out, you are probably looking at around 30-45 minutes per boxwood, slightly less for the arbs.
