    hey guys,
    have some block planters that have dead honey locust's. we cut the trees down and now need to get the stumps out for a re-plant. we have tried skids, backhoe, small crane ect but all of them want to blow the boxes out. hyd tree spade goes too deep and will hit utilities. we dug one stump out by hand with help from our skid and a chainsaw but it took 2 hours with 3 guys...way too long so....i was thinking a spade bit ( might have to weld an extension so it goes deep enough) on a jackhammer ....does anyone know of such a thing?
