    I am removing 90 ft. of privet hedge and was looking for opinions on removing them from the ground after cutting them to a manageable working height. They are very close to a sidewalk, so I could get the truck to them and pull them with a chain or tow strap, But i also thought a using the dingo and trying to pull and dig them out. Tell me what you guys think would be the best and quickest method. Thanks again

    Use a mini X or small tractor with back-hoe. You don't need to cut them down if you can get your truck close enough to load with the machine thats digging. Let the machine do the loading.

    Skidsteer or mini x with a 4in1 or thumb. Best tools for ripouts... period. :)
