Hey guys, dealing with the mess from Sandy still over here, lots of trees to be hauled and uprooted stumps. the little ones I just drive up and pluck out with the skid steer forks, but some of these big ones( trunks 3' to 4' in diameter) have a footprint of around 12'. Even if my machine could lift this, there is no way to get it out between houses then up into a dump truck and out at the dumps safely. The big question, who has handled stumps like this before and how do you do it? pick it clean with a pick then hose it off? cut it into more manageable pieces with a bunch of chainsaw blades? sawzall? roll it out front and slam it into a roll off for someone else to worry about? The skid steer I have is a Gehl 5640, will lift about 3k lbs. various chainsaws, and an international dump. pics for your pleasure. that is my dad who is 6' tall. The other one is my clip board, about 1' tall.
