Default Stump Pullin

So I have like 5 stumps that I need to pull out. I cut the trees off at like 3.5 feet or so. This is my thought. Right towards the bottom, put a 2 inch groove in the back side with a saw, wrap the chain around a few times. Then hook my 12k winch on my wrangler to the chain back it off 20 feet or so, hook my wagoneer to my wrangler, and then hook the waggy to a tree, and cross my fingers. The stumps are old Jack Pines that are in sand. Has any body tried this?

Thanks.

I pulled a blue spruce out of the front yard. 1.5 ft across the trunk. I used the suburban when I had one. After the 5th hit out came the root ball and all. It was HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Put heavy blankets on the line if you are going to attempt that. I would also get a snatch block to help the pulling power. And to keep the winch from straining as much

I found my CJ was never heavy enough, I used to use my 3/4 ton to pull out stumps, but never more than 8-10". They are in there pretty good. I'd dig around them and chop any roots close to the surface. A sawzall works well and doesn't get crewed up like a chainsaw in the dirt..

I tried it before with just my wrangler and a tow strap. I took like 10 good snaps at it and it actually made my whole jeep come off the ground. :D

Is this a test to see what board has more interest in stumps? Here or **?

4 replies here, zero there.

This is officially the stump board, and the original Stumpy, Stan hasn't even signed in

The prolbem with the Jesus , is that Jackpines have roots that grow strait down, to help them hold steady in the sand.

I answered in both places

Depends on teh size of the stump , say 15 " across it will have a root about 3 to 4' down . Jack pine does not spread out much but has a large root straight down .

Id say dirt removal will be required . You supply the correct woman and vodka , i have a backhoe

So take a shovel and dig out around it a bit to loosen the sand up?

That will help , even if you only dig a couple feet down , the root is cone shaped , larger at the top .

My guess is you will snap the root off , not that it matters much .

If this is of any help... Swampjeep ( ) and I split the cost of a trencher last weekend...

While I had it at my house, I used it to grind down 4 stumps.. It worked great...

and it was pretty cheap.

If you decide to cut the stump down please let me know so I can get some video of me wheeling over it.

Just make sure its lower than 3".

Thank you.

donot you know how hard it is for a jack pine to grow? And what about the poor kirkland warblers that only nest in jack pines?

Actually I could care less, but I think youll save yourself some headache by renting a stump grinder. Ive had some pines get the best of me even with a skid steer to the roots

Sounds like you need to have a stump pulling party.
