    Here Is what we use on our 4640 Gehl Turbo! Mesquite grubbing is over half our buisness! We do alot of ranch work and Real Estate buisness. Our 62hp gehl does a really good job. But sometimes I have to snap them off once I get pretty deep! It all depends on what size ur Skid Steer is! Kinda wish I had a Backhoe company, They charge somewhere around 2,000 an acre to do mesquite grubbing! So I get quite a bit of buisness cause i charge way less! I'll have other pictures of it later on with it attached and on a job site! By the way I live In Southern New Mexico , so there is nothing but oilfield patches filled with mesquite!! Hope this kinda of helps!!

    that bucket looks handy for placing boulders too.. How do you like those tracks? Are those the McLarens?

    The AUX line ended up busting off and that was the best way i could fix it. It actually works good like that. Yup those are Mclarens tracks yes sir those tracks are awesome but require alot of maintence. But I wouldn't trade those in for nothing in the world. And the stump bucket we ordered it online from a guy out of Lubbock, T.X and I think it's an XSG Bucket Iwould have to get back to u on that but It works wonders with mesquite grubbing, tree stumps ,Rocks and boulders and actually beleive it or not we have done demolition work with It. Picking up shed roof tops in one pieace, wall sections and we started to clear out burned down house's also.
