    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! :weightlifter:

    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.
