Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

1. Just how big are the stumps and root balls?

2. How tall are the stumps?

3. How much time you have to do this (spare time)?

4. Have you ever tried to chase roots with a hoe?

5. Proper tools and equipment can turn a long job into a short one.

I have a different brand TLB. I learned about digging out stumps last year. Size will determine how hard the are to get out. My TLB is very robust and even impressed my son in law with an old case one. Cutting through roots can be tuff. I found it best to dig as close as possible to the stump. I start on one side and work around at least 3/4ths of the way 4-6 feet deep. Gotta think about when you are making your dirt piles. Then I try hooking the stump with the hoe bucket and getting the stump to move. If it moves even a little I just give it a tug, release and tug again. I;ve taken out some 2-3 diameter red oak stumps that way. It can be time consuming. A larger track hoe would have made short work of them. You want to take the roots out to best get someone or rent a dozer with a root rake.

Good luck
